Re: dark pictures from kodak cx7430

Is your camera set to auto mode? I'm not sure if the CX7430 has manual settings or not, but try making sure its on auto.
Its possible the lens or the CCD (the device responsible for actually taking the photo) is going bad.

This guy - Darntoothysam has a CCD assembly as a low cost fix, 15 dollars.

All photos suddenly too dark, even using flash.

If you are sure you are in automatic mode, the green camera logo on the top dial, your pictures have to be correct.
The exposure compensation should not be available in automatic, so that can't be the reason. (if you are in automatic)
The only thing you could look for, is the exposure metering. There you can chose 3 modes, and I do advise to chose Multi-pattern (should be default) because then not only the centre is measured.
If the pictures stay too dark, while in automatic and Multi-pattern, i think your camera is defect. It has nothing to do with the battery. If the battery voltage drops beneath a certain point the camera will stop completely and not work half.

My Kodak EasyShare CX7430 Digital Camera's flash is working, but the picture's background is dark. So, there is no difference even if the we use flash or not. Please help me to solve this issue. Thanks In...

I assume there's a subject in the foreground you want illuminated with the flash?

The light output from the flash falls off with the square of the distance. An object twice as far from the camera only receives a quarter as much light. If you want your foreground subject illuminated then the background won't get much light. In order to get both the foreground and background illuminated the same, turn off the flash. This will probably require you to put the camera on a tripod or other stable support.

You might also want to consider using the Night mode. This mode uses a slow shutter speed to allow the background to illuminate, then fires the flash to illuminate the subject. See

Format sdhc card for Kodak EasyShare CX7430

According to the specs on the Kodak web site, the CX7430 uses SD cards, not SDHC cards. While SDHC cards will fit into SD devices, there are hardware differences that keep them from working. You need to use SD cards 2GB and smaller.

I have Kodak Easy Share CX7430. I have put in new

Enilra, sounds to me like you might have the button that takes the photo stuck in the down position. Without turning on the power, put you finger on the button and press down on it while you move wiggle your finger around. Get a good look at the button and see if You Can See If The Button is returning to the UP Position. Withour seeing your camera in person this would be my guess.

Hey neilhowie,
I would make sure that your subject is within the range of the flash which for wide angle shots is 8 feet, and for telephoto shots is 9 feet. Another suggestion is to make sure auto exposure has been achieved by holding the shutter button halfway down until the green light appears and then take the image. Another thing you could try is to increase the exposure compensation. Nighttime photographs are difficult no matter what camera you are using so make sure your mode is set to nighttime, and of course your flash coverage would be the same as mentioned above.

Go Ahead. Use Us.

My Kodak camere was really not dropped. I put in new batteries and the camera only gives me one shot and I have to turn it off and try again. I can plug the camera into a charge cord and I can take all the pictures I want. Is it possible the 2 batteries are not enough to power the camera
