Question about Kodak EasyShare Z760 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Little orange plastic piece no longer holds battery down

The door on my camera works fine but without any abuse the plastic (CHEAP) piece that would go over the end of the battery to hold it down to make contact with the camera when you put it in stopped working!!! It just no longer goes over the end of the battery. Now I am pretty disappointed about this and have tried to get a replacement piece but I am told that I cannot do this myself that I have to send the camera to kodak for repairs. I think Kodak needs to recall this camera and replace the piece with one that will work carrectly. This camera is not even close to 2 years old!!!

    I am very thankful for your solution. I had already called Kodak and complained and obviously they have heard alot about this piece of ORANGE PLASTIC. They sent me another one free which lasted right at one week then it did the exact same thing. I have tried several different fixes before I had the piece put in. One that worked and is still working is I put a piece of black dense foam on the top underside of the cover. It has to go as far to the edge as it can with sticky on the bottom so it will adhere to the top piece. It works fantastically.

I dropped my Nikon Coolpix s230 and the orange piece that held the battery is missing so the camera won't turn work.How can I fix it?


Hi, thats called the battery hold or leg. The camera still should power on without it, it is just
used to hold the battery in place while you swap out memory cards. Try to power on the unit
with the door open while holding the battery in place with your finger to see if the battery hold is truly the problem. If it powers on then you can probably find a replacement battery hold
on Ebay or Ecrater for fairly cheap. The problem is installation, its fairly involved and would
require complete disassembly. I could give you the disassembly steps once you get to that point.

Keep getting change battery message and camera turns off.


Hi,

I had this on mine. If you pen the battery compartment door, you will see a piece of plastic labelled "CR1220". You can pull this out and replace the little CR1220 battery that it holds. That ought to solve your problem.

You could use a piece of velcro as a strap but I would start looking at ebay or other places for the parts to fix it. Sooner or later someone will sell it.

The orange plastic clip that holds in the battery broke.


use some tape, or put a piece of something on top of the battery, when you close the battery door and latch it, it should hold the battery in place. That orange clip just holds the battery low enough that it comes in contact with the terminals at the bottom of the compartment.
Hope this helps

Battery door broken


Yes i have fixed it. Sorry for my spell, but i try. First i kutt off the little broken plastic-bits with a knife. Demontage the four skrews in the battery flip. I take a little bit stainless string ca 0,5 mm dia and ca 20mm long. I hold this string with a handtool (tong)and put a soldering-heater on the end off the string and pusch the string troth down two times and get two holes there the two tabs have been.And after that a bend with a tong the string like an U (2x90 degrees) exaktly after the hole-with. And after that a pusch down the string in the two holes exaktly so high so the little finger on the battery-door go in. Test and try with the battery-door. And take a thinn tong and bend out the string to the left and to the right inside the kamera. Thats it. Work with care and slow and exaktly with mm-tholeranse. Good luck !!

My camera will not work


This may or may not apply to your case, but I read a few other articles in this area that mentioned battery type and quality. My ViviCam 3915 stopped working suddenly as well even though the batteries I was trying were showing 1.5+ volts using a multimeter. These were all name brand (like Panasonic, IKEA, Toshiba) but cheaper quality - I tried some higher quality Duracell Ultra batteries and it turned on just fine.
