Flash not working

I have a Kodak CX 7300 digital camera, and the flash no longer seems to work on any flash setting...I have a basic knowledge of electronics, but have never pulled a camera apart..but am hoping that if the flash is dead, I might be able to repair with a new flash "bulb" Thanks.

Re: Flash not working

Would you believe it was quite easy to solve...I was using a Kodak rechargeable battery pack, and that seems to have just died...will not hold a charge at all, when i tried using a set of el-cheapo batteries, the flash worked its off to the ocal electronics store, and time to pick up a couple of rechargables and then time to make a new battery pack. Thanks for the help. Mark

Re: Flash not working

I found a site where I could do interactive trouble shooting. I am having the exact same problem that you're having. After following all the steps this is what I got: Thank you for using the Interactive Troubleshooting Guide. The problem with your product appears to be something you cannot fix yourself. We recommend that you send your product to an authorized Kodak repair center for evaluation. Warranty Coverage The terms of your warranty are described in your User's Guide. If your product is within the warranty period specified, you must provide a proof of purchase to receive warranty coverage. If you do not provide a proof of purchase, you will be charged for the repair. NOTE: Warranty coverage does not include products that have been dropped or exposed to liquid. If your product shows evidence of this, your warranty will be void and you will be charged for repairs. If your product is within the warranty period, having it serviced or altered in any way by a non-authorized party will void the warranty for that repair occurrence.

Kodak no longer repair... Buy a Kodak P20 flash (or similar) to go on the hotshoe, and set the flash to external only in the camera menu... works a treat!

I would like to format a memory card for Kodak EasyShare CX 7300 Digital Camera. The memory card I purchased is a Sandisk 4GB

This can usually be done once the card is installed into the camera. There should be a way to FORMAT DISK with your camera settings. It is usually under MENU, Then you may see some icon with tools, scroll to that and then you should find FORMAT. Under FORMAT, you should be able to format your new memory card.

Hope this helps!

Flash no longer working on Kodak EasyShare C913

You would be better off selling the camera for parts, and buying a new one... sorry to say but that is the best solution... You can get a brand-new on for under $75...

There is no firmware available online for this model. KODAK suggests a repair for this fault.

However due to spare part shortage this model is no longer repaired. Instead KODAK offers a trade up option where you will have the opportunity to trade up to a newer model 25-30% cheaper than the market price.

My son dropped it and the flash no longer works. Pictures still look great outside but all inside pictures are super dark. How easily is the flash replaced and what is an estimated cost so I can plan to...

Contact kodak if you want an estimate for repairs.

If your camera can change the exposure, exposure settings. You could just change it so your camera can absorb more light in dark places.

to try if the flash is working..

*Turn off the camera.
*Install a set of new or fully charged batteries into the camera.
*Turn on the camera.
*Press the Flash Status button to scroll through the flash options until Fill Flash (the lightning bolt icon alone, with no other letter or symbol) is displayed. This forces the camera to use the flash.
