Having problems with your Kodak EASYSHARE Z1285 Digital Camera ?

After taking one picture with my Kodak Easyshare

\015 After taking a picture with my Kodak Easyshare Z1285 the red button flashes several times next to the screen (towards the bottom of the back of the camera) and then the blue light on top flashes a few times and the lens re-tracts back in and the camera shuts off. Any ideas?\015\012\015\012\015\012This is problematic because if you want to take another picture right away you have to turn the camera back on and wait for it to get started to take another picture. So by then you have missed your next shot.\015

Answers :

I've had a similar problem with my Z1285.

The problem is probably weak batteries. The Z1285 requires really good batteries. Standard alkaline batteries don't last very long, perhaps a few dozen shots, less if you are using flash.

I've had success using lithium batteries, not the rechargeable type, but the disposable lithium. Specifically, the AA4 Energizer Ultimate Lithium.

Hope this helps.
Something is most definitely not right. Try this company; https://www.teleplancamerarepair.com/Kodak_EasyShare_Z1285
\015\012they also do a cleaning on your camera as part of the repair.
\015\012just don't keep shaking the camera in case there are loose pieces or about to be, so as to not make matters worse.

Regina's camera I have a Kodak EasyShare V550 Digital. Worked great until...I dropped it from about 3 feet onto packed sand.
