My C 743 does not see the SD card.The card is good and is used in another C 743. Have I messed up a menu setting or is this a camera problem?

the kodak C743 can only take upto 8gb SDHC card , if you have a 16 / 32 / 64 & 128gb card these will not work
try upgrading the firmware from the website by this method
  1. Visit the EASYSHARE Software page and download the latest version of software.
  2. Connect the camera to your computer using a USB cable.

    NOTE: The first time you connect your camera to your computer, Sync and Transfer Setup or Sync and Transfer Assistant prompts appear on the screen. Follow the prompts to set up the camera as a device in the software.

  3. Remove the memory card from the camera.
  4. Turn on the camera.
  5. Start EASYSHARE Software.
  6. Select Tools > Sync and Transfer Manager.
  7. Select your device from the list in the left column, and then select the Info tab.
  8. Click Update Firmware, and go to the location where you downloaded the firmware file.
  9. Click Open to copy the file from your computer to the internal memory on the camera.
  10. Turn off the camera, and then disconnect the USB cable from the camera.
  11. Turn on the camera and follow the on-screen instructions to complete the upgrade. The upgrade takes approximately two minutes. When it is complete, the camera will delete the firmware file from internal memory.
  12. Turn off the camera, and then turn it back on again.

good luck

My cam does not play recorded videos anymore but it still renders images from its lcd screen and lens

Try the simple fix first. Take out your battery, turn the camera to the play position. Then with a ballpoint pen, hit the little reset button located on your camera and hold down the record button at the same time. Hold both for 10 seconds. This resets the motherboard to defaults. It also messes up your time and date. See if this helps. If not try a new cable between your camera and where your trying to produce your image. Still no good? You have an electronic problem.....Shop Time!

5. PC should be selected if not select by highlighting and press shutter button.
6. Press 'Shutter' button.
7. Window 'Autoplay' appears on PC. Select 'import' in Autoplay window.
8. Another window will ask you to name your picture folder. Give it a name.
9. The pictures download to the picture folder automatically.
10. Turn the camera off and disconnect cable from camera and from the PC
11. ENJOY!!

Possible solutions:
Remember you need to turn the camera on when transferring.
Try a different USB outlet

If all fails please contact KODAK in order to arrange a repair or order a new cable. Remember your USB cable is covered under the same warranty as your camera, so remember your serial number when calling:

Hi there, been playing around trying to get camera going,as i took apart (easy enough, if you can handle a watch repair screwdriver) what i did find seems to be a standard watch battery located bottom left next to speaker. Pretty sure if you replace this, it should solve your problem. Just be carefull when taking out ribbon cable!

Cheers Greg.

Camera Temperature

mine is an everio gz-mg37u and i get that same bulls*** on the screen at every power up. First I tried waiting a while then switching all the switches between camera and video mode, record and watch mode, etc. and one time it worked and the message went away. Haven't been able to do that since.

Now what I do is turn it on, wrap it in a blanket, leave it about 10 minutes, then turn the power off and on again. Works fine for me, and if I turn it off and then turn it back on within a few minutes before it cools down, it works fine. There has to be a messed up sensor in this thing that I can desolder somewhere......
