Question about GE A730 Digital Camera

4 Answers

Battery life 10 to 20 minutes total

I bought a GE A730 camera from Dell on 10-22 for my daughter for Christmas. Within 35 minutes - we had gone through 3 sets of batteries. Please advise. Because the time was over 21 days - Dell refuses to help me with this issue.

I believe this to be a software issue. I own a GE 735 and my son owned a GE 730 and both cameras had the same issue with batteries. It is just a matter of upgrading the firmware for your specific model. It can get a little frustrating to do but is well worth it to have a camera not going through batteries every few minutes.
Check out the following website: http://www.general-imaging.com/us/firmware.html
On the left is a blue box that says: QUICK LINKS
Click on FIRMWARE UPGRADES and be sure to follow the directions exactly and your patience will pay off. If done correctly you will not have those battery issues any more.

Where can i find the proprietary power adapter for My ge a730 digital camer?


Proprietary? The GE A730 uses standard AA batteries. If you choose to use rechargeable batteries then you can charge them using any standard AA charger. Such chargers should be available at just about any department, electronics, or office-supply store.

Once you erase or "clean up" your camera files, they are gone, and you can't get them back. They are not like CD disks or computers hard drives. Always copy or move important pictures to your computer before you clean up or format the disk in the camera, or the internal memory. Wish I had better news.

Battery exhausted warning and eats new duracell without even starting!!


Actually I have this camera and one that didn't stay on without fresh batteries every few minutes was given to me to tinker with. It is a software problem and if you are patient and follow the directions exactly...a simple firmware upgrade should resolve this issue for you.
Go to: http://www.general-imaging.com/us/firmware.html
Locate the blue box on the left that says QUICK LINKS and then click on FIRMWARE UPGRADES and locate your camera model. I hope this is helpful.

Battery exhausted warning


Hello justplainles:

Do the others show the same problem?

Try this: RESET ALL in the menu or setup menu.
If that does not work, make sure that the in the menu (if it is there) you set the battery type to rechargeable not alkaline .
You may try alkaline batteries, if it does the same, the camera may need repair.

Some cameras will not set the battery type automatically.

Go to the website.
Search online with a search engine such as yahoo.com and key in "GE A730 software, driver download".
Here is the GE site (firmware is listed, but should have other software):
http://www.general-imaging.com/us/service/firmware.html
This should find what you need.
