Question about Kodak EasyShare Z612 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Lifeless Camera It's a mystery. There are no signs of life when we turn the Z612 on. Battery is fully charged. Memory card is in place. We've tried switching the photo settings. Have pushed all of the other buttons. Not aware that it has been bumped or bruised. It does not turn on. I have a feeling that there is an easy solution.

Re: Lifeless Camera

I wish I shared you easy solution feeling. Try a few things Take battery out and clean the contacts at the base of the chamber with a pencil eraser. Ditto on the chamber door. If nothing happens try charging the battery in another charger or another battery. Still dead? Kodak support is the next stop

Z612 no power on. Battery klic8000 is ok fully charged. No led flashing. No sand, no water, no drop, any issue. Was working well until yesterday.

As per your description it seems your camera have internal fault (circuit problem) which only get resolved in Kodak Service Center but before that you can check following things:-
  • Clean your battery terminal with soft cloth. (Might be it will filled with dirt or dust )
  • Direction of your battery might be wrong, Check out and put it again.
  • Load new or fully charged battery.
  • Check whether Memory Card/Battery Cover is properly closed.

Rating the solution is highly appreciated.

Question : What batteries can I use in my digital camera, and how long do they last?
Battery life depends on how you use your camera, the type of batteries you select, and how you handle the batteries.

Your camera is compatible with: KODAK Li-Ion Rechargeable Battery KLIC-8000 and KODAK CRV3 Lithium Batteries: A non-rechargeable battery. (so your battery might be in need of a change)

Using Your Camera

Some features, such as reviewing pictures and using the flash, require more power than others. Follow these guidelines to get the best use of your batteries:
  • Limit the time your camera is in Review mode.
  • Limit your use of the flash.
  • Use the LCD Dimmer or Auto Power Off features, if available on your camera.
  • Transfer your pictures to your computer using a compatible power adapter, camera dock, printer dock, or memory card reader.
  • Check that the latest firmware is installed on your camera. See Software, Driver & Firmware Downloads.
Handling Your Batteries
  • Wipe the battery contacts with a clean, dry cloth before loading it in your camera.
  • When using your camera in temperatures below 41° F (5° C), carry spare batteries and keep them warm.
  • Do not discard cold batteries that do not work; they may be usable when they return to room temperature.
  • Do not allow batteries to touch metal objects, including coins. Otherwise, the batteries may short-circuit, discharge energy, become hot, or leak.

I purchased a PNY 4GB SDHC memory card to use with my Kodak EasyShare Z612. The camera indicates formatting required. How do I format or are they compatible?

You simply insert the memory into the camera, switch it on, go to the menu and then scroll through to Format and then accept. This will then take a few minutes and format the memory for use in the camera. Make sure that the batteries are fully charged before doing this.

No power?????

Not sure if this will help, but it seemed to fix my issue......I used a freshly charged battery. Removed both xD and Compact Flash memory from the camera. Powered on. You will see the menu flash and read that there is no card inserted. Power down. Place memory back in the camera. I can't explain my issue. The camera may have gone into a stand-by mode until the battery died and it just needed a reset? Anyway, hope this can be of use to someone. =0)

Kodak easy share z612 will not turn on to take a picture

When the battery dies, usually the camera will retract the lens if possible. If the battery is so dead the lens can not retract, I would recommend trying to charge or change the battery. Or try to turn the camera on, and then manually shutting it off if you can.
