    I ordered the camera online from amazon, used it for one day. Then when I tried to turn it on the power button on top just flashed and it wont turn on... This thing was brand new out of the box. I thought this was a quality camera, I mean GE is a dependable brand. But the thing even feels cheap... I've tried replacing the batteries with brand new ones with no luck.

    I AGREE WITH ZAKIA,

    I BOUGHT ENERGIZER ADVANCED LITHIUM BATTERIES.
    THE ONLY PROBLEM IS, YOU CANNOT FIND THEM AS RECHARGEABLES.

I believe I may be able to help. GE has been having some software issues with a lot of their digital cameras. If you are having problems with the batteries wearing out right away...this may help. I own 2 GE cameras...one which was given to me because they couldn't get it to stay on. All that was needed was a firmware upgrade. Try checking out the following link and following the directions exactly and most likely you will no longer have the headaches of dying batteries.
Go to: http://www.general-imaging.com/us/firmware.html
Once there locate blue box on left that says: QUICK LINKS and then click on FIRMWARE UPGRADES.
I hope this helps.

I'm having the same problem. I got it to turn on by connecting it to the computer, but now I can't get it to turn off. What should I do? I got it for christmas, so it's too late to return it.

Hi There
I just received the same digital camera for Christmas , and I was having the same problem it takes great pictures and video's , but when I tried to download them to my PC , I couldn't and it couldn't find my pictures or the driver , so I took it back to where I purchased it and ...........boom It is a Manufacture problem . they even took a few more right from the shelve and tried to download the pictures to their pc and they didn't work either .so if you are having problems with your a730 digital camera take it back to where you boought it or send it to the manufactures , good luck

Where can i find the proprietary power adapter for My ge a730 digital camer?


Proprietary? The GE A730 uses standard AA batteries. If you choose to use rechargeable batteries then you can charge them using any standard AA charger. Such chargers should be available at just about any department, electronics, or office-supply store.

Need Manual


You may download a copy of the manual here.

The A730 is a camera, not a battery charger. It uses standard AA batteries. If you use rechargeable batteries, you must charge them outside the camera.

When i turn my camera on, it starts to turn on but, then the light turns red and the camera turns off. at first, i thought it was the batteries, but i have changed them with new batteries and the problem...


your camera is C653 is that correct? try to use the recommended battery for the camera., If you want a non recharge battery try to use the Alkaline battery., If rechargeable battery the best battry you can use is the KAA2HR battery a type of Ni-MH battery that specialy work for the camera model that you haved., You can also used the AA Lithuim but i recommend the KAA2HR

Camera will not turn on...charged battery but the charge light blinks instead of staying solid


If battries still blinking , chances are that the battries are buggred...try new battries after fully charging...this is cheaper option to try before trying to open the camera..

Camera will not stay on.....


the 3 beeping sound means that the camera has low battery capacity. the lens is stuck out because there is incorrect battery connection. there is an option on the camera setting for the battery type. try this one:
-turn the camera on
-click on Menu button
-select options using left/right, up/down button
-select Set up 2
-Select Battery type
-Select Alkaline for non-rechargable
or Ni-MH for rechargable
-click OK button

this setting should be done when using camera for the first time and whenever you are switching battery types, from rechargable to non-rechargable and vice versa.
