Re: cant get camera kodak m753 to charge
It appears that your problem lies with the main board their are two small fuses on the main board that can cause this problem. changing the main board is most likey your best bet repair on this can be around 65.00 and up depending on where you get it fixed.

The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.
Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use any photo cataloging program.
Hi it dont need to be on whilst charging, some cameras will switch themselves on when you plug them into the computer, but you can still turn it off, now you need to bare in mind that unless you are using a powered usb port is one that plugs into the mains then into your computer you may have problems charging the camera enough through the computers own usb port, it may still charge so you will have to try some cameras will just power up enough to enable you to transfer pictures onto your computer.
give it a try and see how you get on, it wont matter if the camera is on or off whilst plugged into computer how ever it will charge quicker with the camera off if it will even charge at all
If trying to charge using USB through a computer, you have to have the computer on, booted up, and running! The only other thing to try if that is not the problem is to replace the USB line you use, checking plug ends for damage. Good Luck!
That must have been caused by a drop and I'm pretty sure your screen is gone. Try to send it back to Kodak they may not charge you if it's not obviously physical damage, if they refuse to give you warranty service there are third party camera repair places but they will definitely charge you.
the only way to get your pictures off the camera and on to your computer is to get a sd card reader off ebay they are pretty cheap there or get one from radio shack. plug this into the usb port put your card in it and wala you have access through my computer to get your pictures. hope this helps if you need any more help cantact me at digitalcamrepair.com.
Are you using the front usb ports on your computer? My computer's front usb ports were not able to charge my camera, but the rear usb ports were able to (the charging light should stay on if it's charging correctly). I'm not an expert on this stuff, so maybe there's a power output difference between your frontal and rear usb ports.
Also, on the CD there was a camera connection driver. You might try installing that and see if that makes a difference?
does the charging light come on. if it does the battery is charging is it plugged into a usb hub if so the camera will not charge. it has to be connect to the computers usb port directly.also some computers have a built in usb hub witch cause this to happen. try using the usb plugs in the back they are diffrent addresses. also check you cable for any damage. I thing about USB is they are touchy pains. I had to fully reload my computer twice because of a USB problem best thing to do is get a seperate charger for your battery and a memory card reader to transfer your pictures.
