Question about Kodak EasyShare C743 Digital Camera
I got it for christmas and it worked for a day and a half and it wont turn on. i switched the batteries for fresh new ones and it still wont work... i kinda dropped it... it fell off my bed but not very far and it worked fine after that..... so its very strange
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 :
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.

The problem is in the battery holder of the CR1220
-Take out the CR1220 battery (the little round one).
you replace it, put a bit of aluminum foil against the back, between the
battery and the plastic holder, to make it a nice tight fit. One layer won't do
it, but don't put in half the roll.
back in. Done
fresh battery & clean it all with alcohol = good idea as well. Worked for me.
