BEING ONLY 5 MONTHS OLD YOU CAN SEND IT BACK TO THE FACTORY FOR REPAIR IF YOU BOUGHT THIS IN THE USA . NOT MAKE SURE YOU HAVE A COPY OF YOUR RECEIPT WHEN YOU SEND IT TO NIKON .

Battery won't hold a charge in camera, but batteries are new


Hello Sonja, Try a firmware update for the CX7430 available at Kodak website listed under SUPPORT, be sure to get the firmware download for your model camera ONLY !!!!! If this does not help, some of these batteries that come from China are very low quality and have had them discharge sitting on the shelf !!!! Try Duracell or Other name brand battery, watch out for some sold on E-Bay as many are very low quality.
Best Regards, Russell

Camera flash is not working. Batteries in the


Hello,

If camera flash is not working it must be the high - intensity discharge (HID )lamp of the flash assembly that got busted which needs to be replaced. Parts are available in every local camera shops and they are not that costly. So consult your nearest camera repair shop and have it replaced with a compatible HID flash lamp.

Take care!

Flash dont work on any setting


Hello

Thank you for using FixYa for your problem

Always check the batteries first but if is it still giving the same fault, your camera is faulty "Flash discharge error"
It should be taken to an authorized repair centre for a repair estimate. Very few digital cameras have any user-serviceable parts.

Please rate our solutions and if you still have problems please call back for more ideas to help you

Polaroid i737 battery usage


Change the battery type in the Setup menu to NiMH.

Wont turn on


Only use Ni-MH or AA-size alkaline batteries. Do not use Ni-Cd (nickel-cadmium) because the heat emitted can damage the camera.

I would suggest using e2 batteries from Energizer.

In the manual, on page 80 there is a description and procedure for discharging Ni-MH batteries (but NOT regular batteries, so don't do this with regular alkaline batteries) AND do not do this when the external power is connected.

Moving on... The discharging of the batteries procedure should happen when:
  • the batteries last for a short time after being charged normally
  • the batteries have not been used for a long period
  • the batteries are new.
Follow these instructions:
  1. Press the menu/OK button to display the menu on the LCD monitor
  2. Press the "left" or "right" on the pad to select "SET" OPTION and then press "up" or "down" to select "SET-UP".
  3. Press the "MENU/OK" button to dipslay the "SET-UP" screen.
  4. Press "right" or "left" to move to option 5 and then press "up" or "down" to select "DISCHARGE".
  5. Press "right"
  6. Press "left" or "right" to select "OK".
  7. Press the "MENU/OK" button.
The screen changes and discharging begins. When the battery level indicator blinks red and discharging ends, the camera turns off.

Remember to not have the camera external battery plugged in so the battery can discharge on it's own.

Then, at this point, recharge the battery using the external battery charger. This helps to "renew" the battery. This is because Ni-MH batteries will remember the last place where they recharged, and too many times, the memory "bookmark" gets marked to low and has to be reset, done by the recharge.

It may be necessary to repeat these steps multiple times. This effect is not because the batteries are deffective. This is a normal side-effect of Ni-MH. This is the reason the camera comes with a discharge feature.

I the batteries are old and don't function even after performing the discharge procedure as part of the normal operation of the camera (like of the year or two), then the batteries may have reached the end of their service life.

Hope this helps, if so, please rate FixYa! ThankYa!

Can't use chargeable batteries


If your camera doesn't work with NiMH, then it's most likely that you have either one or more bad atteries, or your camera is defective. p. 6 from the user guide: "..Ni-MH batteries left unused in storage for long periods can become ?deactivated?. Also,repeatedly charging Ni-MH batteries that are only partially discharged can cause them to suffer from the ?memory effect?. Ni-MH batteries that are ?deactivated? or affected by ?memory? suffer from the problem of only providing power for a short time after being charged. To prevent this problem, discharge and recharge them several times using the camera?s ?Discharging rechargeable batteries? function. By repeating this cycle several times, the temporary reduction in performance caused by ?memory? or ?deactivation? can be remedied and the batteries can be restored to their original performance levels. ..." Sorry i cant help you more..

Rechargeable batteries NiMH don't last long


i used to have the same problem with my Sanyo 2100mAh. i switched to the Uniross 2300mAh and problem solved. that was using my Ridata 512MB 40X solid state CF. switched to Hitachi 4GB MD (from Muvo2) and now the problem is back. i have learned to live with that though, as it causes no other problem for me except for the faulty battery indication.
