Question about Kodak EasyShare CX7530 Digital Camera
I don't have a power adapter for my camera, so I always run it off batteries. The last few weeks that camera won't stay powered on. When I power it on, the screen comes on then goes black as the lens is extending and retracting. Then the thing just powers off. I bought brand new batteries and gave them a full charge and cleaned the battery contacts with no joy. Can you help?
SOLUTION: Fot the past two years, fully charged NiMH and new alkaline (generic and fresh Name Brand batteries) in my CX7530 always gave a red light and immediate power off -- symptoms of low batteries. Today I tried it again with the same problem. This time, I folded up a small piece of stiff paper to depress the small Lithium battery module detect switch in the battery compartment, and put my NiMH batteries back in -- it WORKED for the first time in two years! After removing the paper and reinserting the batteries, it still works. I suspect this somehow recalibrates the low battery detect circuit. I hope it helps you as well.

Get this~ I brought my camera to my daughters softball game with new batteries, it kept turning off so I took the batteries out and replaced them, still red light flased and turned off. Then I took out my digital picture card and IT TURNED ON WITH THE GREEN LIGHT!! Took pictures and stored them on the actual camera~ go figure.

I don't have a power adapter for my camera either and the same thing has happened and I am not sure why or what to do? The camera won't stay powered on - when it powers up the screen comes on then goes black as the lens is extending and or retracting. Then the thing just powers off. HELP

I have a Kodak Easyshare CX7530 and it does the same thing. I put fully recahrged batteries in it and it blinks orange then red and it shuts off. Sometimes the light blinks green and the camera powers on and I am able to take about 3-5 pictures before the light begins to blink red and the camera powers off. I recharged ALL my bateries and tested the camera over and over with no luck. I notice that the manual indicates not to use Alkaline bateries, I used alkaline bateries once when my rechargable batteries ran out and I did not have any more with me and it seems that this is when the problem started. Has anyone used alkaline batteries and then has started to experience this problem?

I was having the same issue. Bought a new pair of Energizer batteries. Then when they didnt work, bought a new charger for the new batteries (thinking our charger may be bad). When they still didnt work, I bought a new set of Duracell batteries and a new charger. Charged them for 10 hours and then tried them in the camera...still not working. Happened to leave the batteries sitting out of the camera overnight...and when I put the old ones in the next morning, they worked! So I can return the chargers and batteries and use the old ones.

I have reachargable batters that came with the camera and i would let them charge all the way up and the base would say they were fully charged. but when i turned it on it would come on and then when i tried to take a picture it would shut off. so i noticed there was an orange flashing light so i let it flash until it dissappeared now it works fine. i hope this helps

Not sure about this problem either. I have had it so it eats batteries like crazy, new ones only seem to work for a little while. Lately everytime I put new batteries in the camera won't even start up, the red light blinks and the lens won't even pop out. It might be that I need to try more expensive batteries?

I had same problem. I opened up camera and simply move the back of the delete button around a bit to ensure the button would hit the contact when pressed. Closed the camera back up and it now works fine. I have dropped the camera a number of times I think the button and the contact became misaligned.
