    I had not used my Kodak C743 in a few month. I put freshly recharged batteries in it today and turned it to on. The green light came on for about half a second, then went off. Nothing. Tried two new sets of regular alkaline batteries. Same thing, and now not even a blink of a green light. Just dead. I took the batteries out after being in abut five minutes and found them quite hot-whatever that might inidate. I now have the memory chip and batteries out and will try again after while.

PLEASE NOTE A COMMON PROBLEM WITH C743 IS THAT IT REQUIRES MORE POWER TO TURN THE CAMERA ON, IF YOU ARE USING THE KODAK ALKALINE BATTERY THAT COMES WITH YOUR CAMERA, PLEASE REPLACE YOUR BATTERY. TRY THE KODAK RECHARGEABLE BATTERY PACK(KAA2HR). THE KODAK RECHARGEABLE(KAA2HR) HAS MORE CURRENT CAPACITIES AND ARE MORE EFFECIENT. YOU CAN REFER TO YOUR USERS GUIDE ON THE APPENDIX SECTION FOR BATTERY INFORMATION. IF YOUR CAMERA IS STILL NOT TURNING ON, SEND IT TO A REPAIR CENTRE IF YOUR CAMERA IS STILL UNDER WARRANTY.

I had the same problem. I found that some batteries will not work because they do not make contact when in the camera. Some batteries have a raised edge on the negatine terminal which prevents the contacts on the camera from making contact. (bad design) The camera worked in the printer dock but didn't work normally. I thought this might mean that the camera was OK. I tried different batteries until I found a pair that worked.

If you can’t get the manufacturer to fix it or send you the parts you may want to try and fix it yourself. I found a guy in South Carolina who sells good used parts and will give you some suggestions on how to do it yourself. I bought a LCD from him for $39.00, fixed it myself and it works great. I think his email is gerald.ray@aa-ark.com

Had same problem. You CANNOT use the cheap aklaline batteries that come with the camera. They don't have the energy needed to run the unit and will drive you crazy thinking your camera isn't working. You need to buy rechargable NiMH preferrably with 2500+ mAh. Price will likely be at least $17 bucks depending where you find them but Wal-Mart definitely sells a decent selection.

Get the camera repaired. I bought a C743 camera with this problem and noticed it was draining the batteries dead while turned off. I measured the off current and found it to be extremely high (as much as 100ma). This is around the amount of current a flashlight draws when turned on.

Try turning the batteries around. I could barely see the marks on the contacts, i was using the marks on the inside, so I was putting the batteries in upside down.

First - here is the user manual for your camera if you need it; http://www.kodak.com/global/en/service/publications/urg00606toc.jhtml?pq-path=9353 Nothing in there or on the kodak troubleshooting offers any information on this fault other than the camera needs to be serviced at an authorised dealer, but really carefully read through it all and make sure there is nothing else that you could try. It is possible that it is a firmware problem - but only if the camera turns on a tiny bit before shutting down again - if it doesn't respond at all then this is unlikely to be the problem. Can you post back with some more details of what happened to the camera to make it fail, what accessories you have with it, the type of batteries you are using, and what sort of electronic skill and test tools you have. then if you can borrow another camera to take photos of the inside parts when it is opened up we may be able to help. Almost certainly it will need some spare parts, which are probably hard to get except from a kodak service centre anyway. If you also post back with the area in australia where you live then i could find the nearest service centre to you. Hope this helps, sorry if it is bad news but i don't think there is a "quick fix". Post back :)

Try removing the batteries then either plugging your camera in with the AC adapter or the docking station. Try cleaning the contacts from the battery and the battery compartment of the camera.If your camera works with either one of these then you have a problem with either the batteries or the battery contacts. If your camera doesn't work with the AC adapter then you will have to send the camera in for repair.

When i turn on my camera why does the light turn green than red


Your problem may be due to weak/worn out batteries or corrosion on the battery contacts inside the camera which can prevent the full power of the batteries from flowing into the camera. Try this free fix before you do anything else: remove the batteries and wipe the camera contacts firmly with a dry cloth (heavy corrosion may require cleaning with a wire brush, steel wool, or sandpaper). Remove any residue that may have fallen into the battery compartment during cleaning, then wipe both ends of the batteries and place them back in the camera. This cleaning clears the problem about 90% of the time. If it doesn't work for you, your batteries may need to be replaced, or the camera may have a problem that requires professional repair.

I have an EasyShare C743. It just stopped working - I put in new batteries but nothing happens when I switch the camera on. What else should I be checking?


Your fix could be as simple as cleaning the camera's battery contacts, or it could be something more serious and expensive. First try removing the batteries and cleaning the camera contacts with a small metal brush, steel wool, or fine sandpaper. If that doesn't fix the problem, check the Kodak Help Center by clicking on the link below. It uses a simple Q&A format to diagnose problems and propose solutions.

My kodak c813 digital camera will not turn on


I bought this model several months ago and it was working great up until Christmas time.  For some reason it just stopped working.  I couldn't get it to turn on OR sometimes it would turn on after several attempts.  I kept changing the batteries and sometimes that would work, but it was more or less random successes.  I found this link on FixYa : http://wwwuk.kodak.com/global/en/service/batteries/batteryDigCamChart.jhtml?camera=C813
I was using generic batteries (Philips) which I bought in bulk from a discount tech store and these batteries were working in the camera since I bought it.  The batteries were new; just generic.  By coincidence I ended up buying KODAK branded alkaline batteries from the same store.  I replaced the older generic ones with the KODAK batteries and the camera came back to life!  I'll leave it off for a day and see if it turns on tomorrow.
