Question about Kodak EasyShare CD40 Digital Camera
Sounds like the batteries.
Digital cameras are noteably, very demanding power suckers.
If they don't have brand new batteries, they shut off.
They requre top brand (Energizer or Duracell) batteries, and once they are used for even a short time; they will not be enough either.
(Dont' throw them out though, other less demanding things like Remote controlls will gladly use them for years)
The best bet is to use Rechargeable batteries, or have a $100/month budget for duracells.
Statistics you will need to look for in Rechargeable batteries are:
Type; Nickel Cadmium (Ni-Cd) or Nickel Metal Hydride (NiMH)
The Metal Hydride rechargeable battery is best since it charges faster and retains it charge longer, the old fashioned Nickel Cadmium battery used to be the best, but not any longer.
Rating: 900mAh; 1800mAh; 2200mAh; others not mentioned.
Unimportant note: The mAh means Milli Amphere Hours, which means how much power the battery cell will hold when fully charged. It is measured in Ampheres (Amps) per Hour, or in this case Milliamperes (1/1000 of an amp), but that's not important to know; all rechargeable batteries are rated by this number.
The number of mAh's you want are about 1000 or more,
Generally it's the more mAh's you have the more you can take pictures. Such as 900mAh will get about 50 to 250 pictures, but 1800mAh will get you twice as much.
Last note on Rechargable batteries: Only use a LiMH charger for LiMH batteries, and use a NiCd Charger for NiCd batteries.
If a charger dosn't say what type of batteiries it charges, it's the old fashioned NiCd (Nickel Cadmium) from the 1900's when that was the only type of rechageable battery.
Good luck with your Digital Camera.
