Having problems with your Kodak EasyShare Z740 Digital Camera ?

Doesn't hold power for long!

\015 I will put in brand new shiny batteries (alkaline not rechargeable, rechargeable don't work at all) and get MAYBE two or three photos before the camera goes dead and shuts itself off. I can turn it on for another photo sometimes and then it will shut off again. Is it getting overheated somehow? Did I blow up some internal power source? It sounds like a few of us have this issue (my sister has the same camera and she has this problem too only not as severe, she can take 10 pics at a time), so is it a deadly flaw in this design? I have also tried turning off the LCD screen in hopes of saving power and this has NOT helped either.\015

Answers :

You may have water damage that has shorted the electronics in your camera. Other than that seeing the batteries are going dead so fast you have a dead short. Stop using the camera and have it repaired. You are only causing further damage by using it.

My T1 is experiencing power problems. I have several batteries and when the camera is plugged in it shows the charge light but the batteries just dont seem to hold power for very long. It seems unlikey that all the batteries have died at once so maybe the camera is discharging them or it is not charging them properly?

Power issue we bought my sony mvc-cd400 in 2002, so i understand that it is old and out of date. But up until a month ago it has been a great camera. I had the camera on the charger and noticed that when i unplugged it that it did not hold the charge, i returned it to the charger over night and it still had no charge. we replaced the battery the same issue, as long as the camera is plugged in to the charger i can use it. is this a fixable issue?

Green light on camera back to the right of the 'delete' button continually flashes on-off about 1 second intervals as soon as battery is inserted as long as CF card is in place. Switching camera ON produces no visible operational indicators. Depressing "Menu" button flashes: hour glass; menu display; blank screen. Holding button down just cycles as above. Swapped lens, data card, battery, connected EH-5 power source; nothing makes any difference. Checked same lens in another D70 camera; it's OK.


I would start by looking into the memory card slot to see if you have a bent pin. You may need a small light and a magnifying glass to see them. If the pins are okay, then you can try a reset by holding down the BKT and metering buttons toget ... Nikon D70s Digital Camera with 18-200mm lens

Hi. I have a problem with my Panasonic DMC LZ1. Has developed a fault. When powered on with charged batteries and memory card inserted, the camera doesnt do anything on any setting except the review (arrow indicator) setting. The review setting only works if you 'power on' on this setting. (You can see photos on the memory card). If you power on -on a different setting and move the dial to review, then review doesnt work either. Neither the display (except for review as above) or lens wor

My origional Olympus batteries are worn out (do not hold charge very long any more). Last year I bought 2 generic Li-10B/12B replacements which do not perform well. They do not hold a particularly long charge and can not dope with zooming etc before saying they are empty when they are not! The camera is a C770 Ultra Zoom


Have you purchased an original battery for the C770? You should buy something like this one:http://www.digi ... Digital Cameras

Where does the external power supply plug in ? The system uses 6- 1.5 volt batteries , This equals 9 volts ..... Does this mean that the system is 9V ? Can I use a 6volt power supply with a solar panel? Your advertised external power supply is 12V..... How does this work on a 9V camera ? Looking for a way to leave the camera long term with out having to make a 200 mile trip to change batteries every few weeks.

Lens stuck out No display No link to computer but will charge battery. Only way to power off is remove battery. Numerous key holds when power on result in no change. View lott's on FixYa. Try gentle but firm exercise of barrel, left right with success when some inward movement felt. Insert battery, power on, screen display yes, take picture yes [onboard memory as no SD installed for tests]. Will update if problem comes back. Gentle but firm is the key, good luck.

Hello, I purchased a finepix s5700 about 18 months ago. It has worked perfectly until the last few weeks. I can turn the camera on if I hold the playback button and switch on the power, and can scroll through everything in the memory, but when I press the shutter to take a photo, the camera switches itself off.

I hit the power button and it turns green for a second but then goes out. The camera and LCD screen do nothing. So I have some sort of power problem. When I put the battery in the charger the charger light comes on for about a 10seconds but then goes out (suggesting that the battery is fully charged). Is this a battery problem (not charging or holding a charge) or a camera problem? I don't want to buy a new battery if the camera itself is dead... Thanks!

On my DMC-LZ7, I have over 700 pictures to download (have a 2GB SC card they are stored on) and when I connect the camera to the computer via a usb cord, the computer locks up when it starts the process of acquiring the pictures; it doesn't seem to matter which program I use, as I have tried both Lumix Simple Viewer and Adobe Photoshop. I have to hold in the power button on my tower to get the machine to power off as it completely locks up all programs and operations. Suggestions?

I have acquired a Digilux 1 with two original batteries that apparently no longer hold a charge. However, the supplied AC adapter/charger does not power the camera. In addition, my Digipower DPS-9000 lithium ion battery which I have used on several other cameras, does not power up the camera either. Is there something wrong internally? Appreciate any suggestions.
