Question about Kodak EasyShare Z740 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Formatting mode/trash can icon

I have a Z740 and the trash can icon keeps popping up how can I solve this problem it does it in all modes? I know that this is formatting mode and that it does delete everything. I have tried all things includung changing batteries to make sure that they are charged to even putting a memory card in. I don't remember the camera doing this when I bought it over two years ago. What am I doing wrong?

Have tried a different memory card- it is possible this has become corrupt. Try the Kodak web site Tech Support also

How to Format a Memory Card with a Nikon D700

1) Insert the memory card you wish to format into the Nikon D700's body using the memory card slot on its' right side. Make sure the power is off before you insert the card and that you place the card in correctly. The D700 will only accept CF cards, so make sure you have this type available.
2) Turn the camera on with the power switch. Only do this after you have inserted the memory card and closed the memory card slot.
3) Press and hold both the Trash and MODE buttons down for about 2 seconds. Together, these are known as the 'Format' button. The Trash button is located on the back face of the D700 body next to the Preview button, and the MODE button is located on the top of the D700 body next to the shutter button and power switch. If done correctly, the letters 'For' should appear blinking in the shutter-speed sections of both the view finder and control panel.
4) Press and hold both the Trash and MODE buttons again to format the memory card. This will delete all photographs on your memory card and format it. Do not turn off the camera or remove the memory card while the card is being formatted. If you do not want to format the memory card, simply do not press the Trash and MODE buttons the second time and wait for the blinking 'For' to disappear, which it will do after about 6 seconds.
5) Wait until the blinking 'For' disappears. The display will now show the full amount of photographs that can now be taken on the formatted card.
6) Alternatively, you can also format your memory card from the Setup Menu in the D700 LCD menus. You can access this by pressing the MENU button on the back of the D700 body, selecting the Setup Menu and pressing Format Memory Card, OK. This will format your memory card immediately.

I've got a DSC-S700 that I can't get to take clear pictures, I've tried all different settings and even automatic, still get blurry pictures, it was formated when first purchased, will formatting it again...

The memory card formatting is not the problem.

There may be a fault with the camera, in which case you should return it under warranty if you can, but before you go there, have you put the camera into Macro mode? This is an extreme close up mode in which the camera will only focus on objects few inches from the lens, even using autofocus. The icon for Macro mode is a little flower.

Screen and view finder not showing anything

Just covering the bases...
Make sure the lens cap is removed
Turn the ON/OFF switch to Favorite mode
Press EVF/LCD does it toggle
Look to see if the battery level ICON shows better then half
Battery combination sometimes will show a strong icon level
It may be strong in the other modes which draws less power then the picture taking mode.
My guess would be New Battery replacement.
Some tests were done that may be of value to your solution

I Hate Photography - I So Don't Understand It

Okay, first to erase one at a time:
go to playback mode then find the picture you want to erase. Press the trash can button (it's the 3rd button down in the middle) only press it one time while the picture is showing it will bring up a screen on the left, use the button that at the top back of the camera that goes to the next picture and with your thumb look at the left part of the screen and go down and select the little icon that look is under the first one highlighted then just press the button just to the right of the Menu buttom (this is the enter button and it's not clearly marked at all). This will erase/delete the selected picture.

To format card and erase all pictures: do all the above but when you press the trash button press it again and hold it for a second and the screen will give you more icons at the left of the screen toggle down to the bottom icon and press the enter button and your format screen will come up. It's easy from there.

Can't change flash mode

Check out the Kodak web site technical support team. If is of recent purchase the warranty may obtain a replacement or a low cost swap out if just out of warranty. Independent repair is not an option
