Having problems with your Kodak EasyShare Z760 Digital Camera ?

Red flashing light on battery indicator on the loading dock.

\015 I replaced the battery on the camera with a brand new one and when i place it on the docking station, the battery indicator on the docking station still flashes red. I've checked all connections and the photos will still upload but I don't know how to make the red flashing light stop.\015\012My camera is a Kodak EasyShare Z760 Digital\015

My Z760 does the same thing. When that happens I run the battery completely down by taking pictures until it shuts down. Then when I put it on the dock it charges properly. Don't leave your camera on the dock all the time and don't try to always keep the battery fully charged--instead it will develop memory and think it needs to be fully charged to run and will give you a low battery signal earlier than it should. Wait until you actually get a low battery signal before charging and it should help, but mine will still give me the red light sometimes. Then I run the battery out like I said before. I hope this information helps. :-)
Folks, I have a Z760 Kodak as well, and I have been as frustrated as most of you. I do not think it's the battery, as a new battery didn't make a difference. What made the difference was taking the camera off the dock, removing the battery, and then "powering" the camera on (won't come on, of course). Then, putting the battery back in and charging it on the dockstation (Series 3) seems to calm it down. Taking the memory card out when charging seems to help, too. About 6 months ago, there were troubleshooting steps on the Kodak site that led me to this solution. I followed them, and didn't have any problems after that. Recently, though, I was using the camera a lot, and the whole issue started up again. I couldn't find the support page that I found before on the Kodak site, but remembered that it had something to do with powering the camera without the battery in (and maybe without the memory card in, as well). My camera now seems to be charging fine in the docking station (with the battery in and the memory card out). Yep, just went to 3 green bars.
It's a great camera for pictures, but the docking station issues sure are frustrating. Please email me at [email protected], and I'll be happy to help you directly.

Jazz DV-179 Hi there, My Jazz DV179 camcorder will not turn on. I've plugged the usb into computer and camera and the red light flashes a couple of times and then stays solid red. This would seem to indicate that it is charged. But it won't turn on. Can you please advise? Also, we lost the battery charger that plugs into AC outlet. Assuming we can just charge it by plugging it into computer via USB? Where would we find an AC battery charger for it?

I'm trying to charge my Canon battery for my Rebel XTI camera. I have a Canon Battery Charger for LC E5. The Battery pack is LP-E5. The battery fits into the charger and a red light comes on. It doesn't flash. It remains constant. I've had it in the charger for 4 hours, and it doesn't turn green. Is the battery fully charged if there's a constant red light and no green light? Thank you.

I bought a power adapter for the camera, but it doesn't seem to work without batteries in the unit. If I use the batteries alone, I will eventually get a red blinking light at the back of the camera, indicating low battery power, hence the purchase of a power adapter. When using both power adapter and batteries, the red light on the front of the camera is illuminated. The green light on the back of the camera is blinking.

Hi, can I first ask do you charge a fee for your help. If not, can you help with the following problem? I've recharged the battery for my Canon 40D and placed it back in the camera. The red light flickers and then no power at all. I've done this a couple of times thinking it may be the battery but the last time I tried it then flashed red and a blue light at the same time. This blue light is the printer light next to the Menu button. I don't know how to fix this? Can you help? Thanks.

Try replacing the battery. If the battery has gone bad, charging it will do no good. If it is a new battery, you may have faulty battery terminals in your camera, the memory card switch may be bad, or some other internal failure may have occurred. ... Canon EOS 40D Digital Camera
