Having problems with your Kodak EasyShare Z712 Digital Camera ?

My Kodak EasyShare Z712 IS problem is with the batteries. I'm using the Kodak Digital Batteries and they will only last about 30 minutes..even when I just use the viewfinder instead of the LCD. My son can use his batteries about 20 days - when I put his batteries in my camera they only last about 30 minutes. Any help??????


Answers :

I've had the exact same problem with mine. My wife was ready to buy a new one, but I didn't want to giveup the nice optical zoom on the Z712 IS. Checking out the web and a friend of ours with the same camera, it appears to be a common problem. My last time to try the camera, I took 19 pictures on brand new batteries and they died. The Kodak site doesn't really acknowledge a problem with the camera, but I found the latest firmware (1.06) and just walked around the house taking pictures with flash. At 25 pictures, I'm still going strong. Definitely worth a try to see if it fixes your problem: http://www.kodak.com/global/mul/service/downloads/DownloadFile.jhtml?locsvcsEntryPath=10807&product=EKN033025&operatingSystem=windows_xp&lang=en&type=firmware&downloadId=dln00179_file1&variant=false&pq-path=14091

When I leave the fully charged battery in the camera for about 10 days it gets completely discharged. This is the original Nikon battery.

I have a Kodak Easyshare M1063 that I've had for almost 1.5 years, so it's no longer under warranty. I recently had to replace the battery, and since then, I've been having problems with it. Not all the pictures transfer via the Easyshare software. I've found a workaround for that by inserting the SD card into my laptop and transferring them that way (bypassing the proprietary Kodak software). The last time I did that, however, when I reinserted the SD card and powered on the camera, the shu

My Kodak Easyshare Z1275 has short battery life. sometimes even newly charged 2600 MaH batteries cause problems. Powers up, lens extends, opens screen to set time and date then powers down. Sometimes i can take a picture or two before it powers down. This is a known problem to Kodak but they want $90 to repair it. Can anyone tell me how to repair it myself. If I can't I will throw it away and use my Cannon exclusively.

I have a Kodak Z1015IS, about 16 months old, that has not been subject to any type of liquid or damage.
