Question about Kodak EasyShare Z740 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Digital camera switches on and then off very quickly

I have a Kodak Z740 Digital camera. When you switch it on the lens shutter opens, closes and then the camera switches off. It has had new fresh batteries and I don't think power is the problem because when you switch it onto the favourites side the power stays on. Any thoughts would be appreciated.

    Mine is a Z650, but exactly the same problem. It wasn't staying on at all - for Favorites either - at first. But it started staying on Favorites after I cleaned the battery connectors. Now, after cleaning the connectors, when you switch it on to Favorites, the light flashes green once then red and the camera stays on. But when you switch it on to take pictures the lens opens, the light blinks green 3 or 4 times, and then the camera switches off.

I too am experiencing the same problem with this model. Have you found a solution? I think it could be a firmware problem, but I can not find a update download.

Screen and view finder not showing anything


Just covering the bases...
Make sure the lens cap is removed
Turn the ON/OFF switch to Favorite mode
Press EVF/LCD does it toggle
Look to see if the battery level ICON shows better then half
Battery combination sometimes will show a strong icon level
It may be strong in the other modes which draws less power then the picture taking mode.
My guess would be New Battery replacement.
Some tests were done that may be of value to your solution

If i go to favorites it works fine switch over to the camara it starts to work the screen goes off and stops


I may be able to help with your Kodak EasyShare Z740 that works in favorites but turns off in camera mode. This is a common problem.

This is either caused by a problem extending the lens, or a computer brain problem that is reset with a button press sequence.

Camera switches on then off


Check the Kodak website Tech support, It does seem that there is a switch fault or internal short here.
