Kodak C-743 will not power up quickly. Sometines

Kodak C-743 will not power up quickly. Sometimes requires several cycles of on/off knob to start camera. "New" battery solves problem for a few minute, but then requires you to rapidly rotate control knob to get camera to cycle on.

    Problem still exists, but I'm not paying YOU for assistance! I could have taken it to a repair shop if I wanted to do that!

I too am experiencing the same problem with this model. Have you found a solution? I think it could be a firmware problem, but I can not find a update download.

The company suggests lithium batteries. That has not helped! We are sending the camera to Kodak.

Remove the batterty andclean the internal battery contact with an
eraser on the end of a pencil- take a flash light to look inside the compartment to enfure they are bright and clean.
Make sure the battery door and contact srip are a good tight fit
Hold the door down with a finger whilst switching on
Other than that there is little moreyou can do

SOURCE: put brand new batteries in camera took three pic then they die

Hi, you will only solve this by buying the official KODAK battery (KLIC-8000) - NZD52.00 retail here in New Zealand. Even the generic CR3V rechargeable batteries dont work, so dont waste your $$ on them.
Even now, with the 'official' battery, when taking flash photos or zooming a lot, I find that it is only taking around 150 - 200 shots, when Kodak boast over 400.
But I must say the capabilities of the camera (esp the quality video) outstrip any annoyance battery wise.
Hope this helps, regards Wayne

SOURCE: I keep getting Camera error # E45 when I turn on

Hello

The problem is that the lens has become stuck in the barrel. There are some DIY solutions you could try, but the probability is that you will have to get it fixed by a professional.

Use these at own risk as it may further damage the camera.

Firstly , try connecting your ac adapter or usb cable.

Try holding the shutter button while switching on the camera.

Look at the lens , and if some of the lens 'circles' is misaligned or not concentric then try wiggling it (while holding camera lens down).

Try gently pushing or pulling the lens when it extends but this is risky as it may cause the lens barrel to slip out of its guidance system.

Another way to do this is to place the camera lens down on a hard surface and then power it up. Be sure to use a soft cloth or something similar as to not scratch your lens or casing. Let the lens push the camera up and down a few times and sometimes the little resistance provided by the camera is enough to get things going again.

Try hitting your camera near the lens on the body with the soft tissue on the palm of your hand.

Other than that , I would take the camera to a repair center for a evaluation to see if it would cost more to repair than to replace the camera.

If it is still under warranty I would suggest you take it in before trying any of these steps and remove any off-brand batteries or accessories as some stores are really fussy about warranty repairs on camera's with non-brand accessories.

You can also have a look at THIS link.

Hope the advise is useful. please do not hesitate to let me know if you need any further assistance.

Regards
Andrea

"cycle error" - scanner powers up ok but will not scan due to this error ID=055


Error 55: "Lamp I2C error reading from DAC". Operator log message: "Cycle power, if problem persists, call service.". This error is involves communication errors between the LED AY and the DAC. A couple things can be done to alleviate this issue but unfortunately, as a user, you can only perform the first step. The other steps require a Kodak Field Engineer to complete. First step, upgrade your Firmware. Firmware updates can be found at the following web page: http://graphics.kodak.com/DocImaging/US/en/Support_Center/Document_Scanners/Production/i5200_Scanner/Support/Drivers_And_Downloads/i5000_Series_Scanner_Firmware/index.htm. If you still experience issues following the firmware upgrade, call Kodak Service & Support to schedule a field engineer to be dispatched to your site.

They only have so many self-protection cycles in their lives so continuously resetting or cycling their power without addressing the cause can do more harm than good.

A heat sink is just a finned heat-conducting device for radiating heat to the air which should be flowing freely through the unit's ventilation holes. It can't break in normal use. But it CAN get clogged with dust reducing its effectiveness.

"Choose a location that is well ventilated (with at least several inches to both sides and behind), and that will provide a clear line of sight, within 25 feet/8 meters, between the receiver's front panel and your primary listening/viewing position-this will ensure reliable infrared remote control communications. The T 743 generates a modest amount of heat, but nothing that should trouble adjacent components. It is perfectly possible to stack the T 743 atop other components, but the reverse usually should be avoided. Nonetheless, it is generally preferable that the T 743 stand alone. It is especially important that sufficient ventilation be provided; if you are contemplating locating the T 743 within a cabinet or other furniture, consult your NAD audio/video specialist for advice on providing adequate airflow."

If you're lucky, you haven't finally toasted it. If you have, a hands on tech will need to sniff sround (literally) to find the dead component(s).

I'm not familiar with this machine with out a picture, but does it have a control knob that would allow you to advance through the cycles? If so you should be able to go to a spin cycle and empty the unit. How long did you leave it unplugged? Sometimes it requires several minutes to loose its memory. If not you may need to empty the water manually as it may be a fail safe to keep you from getting the floor all wet. Take a bucket and lift the drain hose out of the house drain pipe and lower it into the bucket to empty. It may take several trips. This will not work unless the hose comes out of the bottom of the machine which I think yours does. Once empty try plugging the unit back in and see if that helps. If not the main control processor may have taken a voltage spike and has suffered irreversable damage and will need to be replaced. Please give me more info..
