Kodak CX7430 can only take 10 pictures with a new battery
I am wondering why Kodak CX7430 can only take 10 pictures with a new
battery. This has made a big trouble when I am going abroad for
visiting. Is this a design problem for Kodak digital camera?
Camera batteries lose their charge quickly. I have been using rechargeble batteries and changer to no avail?

Always use the best batteries you can buy. Either rechargeable or Alkaline. Do not use the cheapest, just because they cost less. There can also be problems with the camera. This camera, I believe is a 4mpxl digital camera. It has a few years on it (about 2004), and in those years some of the digital cameras did need a lot of power to operate correctly. My guess is that you are using cheap batteries, not the best you can buy.

I bought a kodak c182 for my daughters wedding. it work wonderfully, but now I have a problem with the batteries. I can put in new batteries take 1 picture, then it says low battery and shut off. I have place seveal new batteries in and get the same results. Could it possibly be a promblem with the memory card.
its better use Kodak battery for you Kodak camera.FYI there's a lot of brand of AA battery like energizer,duracel and also kodak.if you compare the size or the height of all battery its totally different.especially the kodak are more taller than the other.thats why if you use other brand it works only 5 shots only or less.
Here are the steps:
1. Make sure you will install a new or fully charged battery/batteries into your camera. Please use lithium batteries Ni-Mh or rechargeable Batteries (2000 M.Amp or higher). The batteries that was in your pack when bought are only test batteries and not rechargeble.
2. Clean the battery contacts.
a. Remove the battery/batteries and the memory card from your camera, then wipe the battery contacts with a soft, clean cloth.
b. Reinstall the battery/batteries into your camera
3. Turn on your camera without the memory card.
In order to organise your repair or Trade up please Contact KODAK:
You need to get some decent rechargeable batteries unfortunately standard batteries are just not good enough and lose their charge very quickly not to mention end up costing you a small fortune to replace.
I recommend NiMH 2500mah recharageable batteries or better (i use Energizer). Makes sure you have another 2 sets full charged and ready to go so you dont get caught out when out and about.
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
Chances are that the problem is corroded battery contacts inside the
camera. Remove the batteries and clean the inside contacts with a fine
wire brush, steel wool, or fine sandpaper. Remove any residue that's
in the camera from the cleaning, then reinstall your batteries.
Hopefully this will cure the problem and get the camera back up and
working the way it should.
If that doesn't do the trick, you might want to try your luck with the Kodak Troubleshooting guide at:
Sounds like a new battery would do wonders. I would contact Kodak and see if hey will offer you a new battery. If not then I would go buy one. The battery is probably the most likely to go bad so fast on a camera.
