Rechargable Battery Problem on Kodak DX 4530

I believe my wife some how managed to push the rechargeable Ni-MH Kodak KAA2HR 2100 MAh double battery pack in backwards. This may have blown a fuse inside the camera. When I place the camera into the EasyShare Dock II cradle, the 3 lights on the front of the cradle no longer light in sequence indicating the battery pack is charging. If I put the Lithium CRV3 pack in the camera, it seems to work OK but the Lithiums only make contact on the bottom of the battery compartment. Is there a fuse I could replace to use recharagables?

Inside the battery compartment, on the same side as the battery cover hinge, you will see a small white mechanism. As I understand it, this is a microswitch which recognises when rechargeable batterys are installed. I suspect this may have been damaged. If so, you will need a rock-steady hand and brilliant eyesight to repair it. Even dismantling the camera is a challenge.

Can i use a rechargable battery which is rated 750 mAh(1.2v) if the one in the phone is 850 mAh (1.2 v)?

No it would not be advised to go for a lower mAh as your phone would not perform as eficiently and also too I would recommend to replace it with same as qriginal 1.2 v -Ni-MH battery . And you can get any battery from Amazon .Com at avery good price, that is my go to place if I want something specific.

Won't use rechargeable batteries

It could be due to the fact that some rechargeable batteries are slightly different shapes and the nobbly bit on the + end doesn't reach far enough in, as it is the case with Maplin AA batteries.
In my case I placed a small drop of solder with a soldering iron on the + nipple and now they reach into any device.

Installed new batteries and the camera will not turn on. The camera has been sitting up for 6 mo. with no use. We used energizer lithium batteries.

Try using recomended batteries:
optional KODAK EASYSHARE Docks with 1 KODAK Ni-MH Rechargeable Digital Camera Battery KAA2HR; 2 Ni-MH batteries AA, 2 lithium batteries AA; 1 KODAK Lithium Digital Camera Battery CRV3; KODAK Ni-MH 2100mAh Battery Pack, KODAK Digital Camera Battery AA (ZR6); KODAK Alkaline Digital Camera Batteries AA; 3 volt DC input AC adapter

You can even contact Kodak direct and they will send you a free CRV3 battery to test with.

Sony DSC-P93 battery replacement question

NiMH batteries. You can use the larger mAh AA. It has more capacity and should give you longer service before needing recharge. The battery manufacturers recommend that you do not mix the batteries. i.e. don't use mAh 2100 and mAh 2500 as one set, use all 2100 or all 2500 as one set.
