Question about Kodak EasyShare Z740 Digital Camera

3 Answers

I turn on the camera , it works for about 10 seconds then turns off.

I think the camera is going into standby or power-saver or something. I turn it on , then the lens should expand, that doesn't happen , but right after that it turns itself off. I have checked the batteries, through various tests and am satisfied that they are working fine.Help

Thank YOU for responding. My husband is good at taking things apart and reassembling them. He asked how do you "free the lens mechanism?" And how did you know that was the problem?
Thank you for your time

It sounds like the lens is jammed. This happened to mine about 4 days after I got it. It was a bad mix of my carelessness and my sons. Anyway, I never buy extended warranties and it probably wouldn't have covered it anyway. I decided that repairs at a camera shop would be close to or more that it cost. Either way, it was going to be a loss, so I took it apart carefully and freed the lens mechanism up myself. It worked and the camera still takes great pictures two years later!!! I would only suggest this if you are competent with taking things apart and reassembling them. Good Luck!!!

The lens mechanism is damaged- perhaps through a bump or a drop. Either way a repair is not likely to be economic. Check out Kodak Customer Support especially if it is a young camera- but I guess it will be time for a new camera

Make sure the PC itself is not going into a power saving or screen saver mode...this is the most common issue when playing completely automated presentations or movies.
Normally, I suggest turning off all power saving functions in the PC or Laptop, and disabling the screen saver all together.

How does your system go into standby? IE is it on a timed to go into standby through the Windows Power Saver Settings, or does it happen when pressing a standby button on your Keyboard or PC Tower Case?

Monitor keeps hibernating, can't make it stop, pixel issue.


Hey,

I think this is more of a problem on your computer instead of the monitor, ofcourse you could try another monitor and see if the same happens. I suspect your computer goes into standby or hibernation on its own, and it does work fine if you reset the computer right?

if you go into power management again, disable or turn off hibernation completely, its on one of the pages.
Make sure its not set to standby, and also disable your screen saver.

Right click on desktop - properties - then screensaver. turn it to none.

Also you could look into the computer bios and make sure its not set to standby or hibernation from there. thats unlikely but you could check.

how to get into bios.. depends on the computer, right when you turn it on, on one of the corners of the screen you will get a message, press button to enter setup or bios. press that to enter bios when its presented.

look around the bios and poweroptions.


Let me know if you need anything else.


Thanks,
Ekse

Computer does not stay in hibernation or standby mode


That happen because on the stand by or hibernate setting the time was setting in 5 minutes.
Go to Control Panel >> Display >> Screen Saver >> Power

And set the time right there as your preferences.

Power problem with 450


The LCD goes dark after the camera has been inactive for a time, to save battery. When that happens, you can easily restore the LCD display by half-pressing the shutter. If you want to, you can turn this off by selecting menu-setup-SleepTimeout and turn it off. (I don't recommend it, though, as the LCD always on will drain your battery).
