I have replaced the battery and memory card, the camera keeps saying I need to format the card, but then it says it is formatting, then gives another message saying the card needs to be formatted....


If the memory card replacement is an SDHC model card the Kodak z740 will not work with it. The memory card has to be a standard SD card of 2 gig size or less to properly function. Take card out and turn on camera. See if you get same error. You should get missing card error but otherwise be able to operate camera controls such as zoom, flash, etc. If that is fine find old card you used and place back in camera... or purchase a standard SD card from Walmart for 10 dollars

SDHC Card 4 GB SanDisk will not format. get


The Z740 uses SD cards, not SDHC cards. SDHC cards will physically fit into the card slot but are not compatible. It's a hardware incompatibility, not updatable in firmware. You'll have to stay with 2GB and smaller SD cards.

Pictures taken can be reviewed in the camera. But,


It's a one way street...from camera to computer...not the other way around. Doing it that way will eventually corrupt the card and sometimes even the camera.

I have the same problem, its as if the voltage sensor has raised it's cut off point. Originally when the batteries dropped to around 1.4v the camera would cut out, ( normal I would say ) a fresh set would sort it out. Don't use rechargeable batteries as they operate at a lower level and last a far shorter time. My problem I think is terminal and must be a fault on one of the printed circuits, so I bought the Kodak M380, not good quality pictures indoors even though 10.2 mp. Good luck.

Camera starts, then immediately shuts off


I took out the card.
Erased the photos on the built-in memory (after making sure they were copied to my computer.)
Replaced the card.
Voila!
Took some photos and it turned off when I wanted.
I wonder if it will last, or if it is a fluke.
Try it.

4.) Move the gear manually to make the lens come out.
5.) keep it out, put the front plate back together.
6.) reinsert the battery, turn it on.


or...
1.) Remove the battery.
2.) Wait about 6-8 hours.
3.) Reinsert the battery.

Remove the batterty andclean the internal battery contact with an
eraser on the end of a pencil- take a flash light to look inside the compartment to enfure they are bright and clean.
Make sure the battery door and contact srip are a good tight fit
Hold the door down with a finger whilst switching on
Other than that there is little moreyou can do
