Question about Kodak EasyShare CX7330 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Everything else works but will not take picture

Pressing the shutter button does nothing! The green light is on, the batteries are fresh, I can make changes in the menu etc. but when I press the shutter button, nothing happens. I thought it had something to do with the battery cover which is loose (the spring just fell off) but I taped it tight and otherwise the batteries power up the camera. I don't get the low battery signal, which I did when I tried different batteries, so that shouldn't be the problem. Kodak was no help at all. I was thinking about ordering another battery cover just in case but while I was told it is "free" the S&H charge is $15! I'll do it if it's a good possible solution, but I have a feeling it won't help. Any ideas?

Re: everything else works but will not take picture

Whilst there may be another fault, replacing the battery cover is a good start and you need to eliminate all possible causes.

These cameras also only reliably run on Lithium batteries.

I've seen many sets of fresh alkaline batts not work, even though they show full power.

Lithiums are more expensive, but they last much longer than several sets of alkalines, which ends up being far greater $ value and you are not constantly changing batts.

Worth a try.

Shutter-release button doesn't work

The manual only can give two reasons why the camera would not take pictures.
One, there is no memory card placed.
Two, the memory card is full.
You are sure you have placed a working empty memory card.
If you did save all the pictures on the memory card to a computer, try formatting the card in the camera.
When you are pressing the shutter release button half, does the camera say it is focused correct? light bottom corner of the display.
Your camera has a setting to take pictures with a remote control. Did you put the camera in that setting? Read page 76 of the manual.

No picture taken when shutter release is pressed

if you see no reation of the pressing of the button i.e. no focusing, no error message nothing , then most probably a simplest problem , the shutter release button may not be working for few reasons : 1) defective switch. 2) defective flex cable. 3) camera exposed to some physical jerk or dropping resulting into disalingment between inner switch and the shutter release button.

Problematic Camera

I just discovered that the real problem is a STICKY SHUTTER BUTTON, staying down after taking a picture. This prevents the green ready light from coming on until I jiggle the shutter button. It has actually started to be hard to press, making a definite clicking sound as it goes down. I can even feel it catch on something. If I move it around a bit, it will eventually come up, allowing the ready light to reset. Can this be cleaned? How about adding a drop of WD40 or something? Anybody ever take one of these apart? Any tips as to how to do it safely??? Thanks.

Why doesn't the shutter button on my EasyShare digital camera work?

The cause and solution may include one of the following: The camera is not turned on. Turn on the camera. The camera is processing a picture; the camera Power ring light (on the Mode dial) blinks green. Wait until the light stops blinking before taking another picture. The card or internal memory is full. Transfer pictures to the computer, delete pictures from the camera, switch storage locations, or insert a memory card with available memory. The shutter button was not pressed. Depress the shutter button completely down. There was a failure in the focus and/or exposure. Press the shutter button halfway to set the Auto Focus (AF) and Auto Exposure (AE). When the AF/AE indicator turns green, press the shutter button completely down. The battery is exhausted. Replace or recharge the battery
