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? I have trouble turning my camera on. When I turn it on, it doesn't come on but the little red light(that turns green when the camera is on) flashes. I have to turn the camera off, pop out the batteries, put them back in, & then sometimes the camera will come on but not always. I've put brand new batteries in it & made sure it stays on the dock to be charged & kept it off the dock with the batteries out to see if that helps...NOTHING! I don't even bother trying to pics.

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:

    Remove the batteries and clean the battery contacts inside the camera
    with a soft cloth (a heavy buildup on the contacts may require cleaning
    with a fine wire brush, steel wool, or sandpaper). Remove any residue
    that the cleaning leaves in the camera, and then reinstall the
    batteries. This clears most power-on problems, but if yours persists,
    check the Kodak troubleshooting guide at:

    This problem is frequently due to corroded battery terminals inside the
    camera. Remove the batteries and wipe the terminals with a soft cloth
    (heavy corrosion may require a fine wire brush, steel wool, or
    sandpaper). Remove any residue left in the camera by the cleaning.
    Clean the terminals on the batteries in the same manner, and then
    replace them in the camera. This cures most problems, but if it
    doesn't work for you, check the Kodak troubleshooting guide at:

Tip

KODAK printers


Tip of the day:

DO NOT buy a KODAK printer. It is pure **** but worse is the service you'll get from Kodak when you run into a problem.

Their service or lack of service makes me wonder if KODAK isn't about to go into receivership. There is such a desperate tone to their way of doing business these days it makes you wonder.

I've owned all HP printers at home and at work and NEVER had a problem with one of them.

The Koday 5500 displayed a printhead error the same day I purchased it and the issue hasn't gone away.

Stay away from ****.

You need a new print head. Don't buy one, though. Phone Kodak (India) and get a new head. Or throw the stupid machine away. Kodak should be sued for producing such poor quality ****.

Wallet size is 2" x 3". It is possible by using Kodak EasyShare software that is incorporated with the Kodak printer. If you dont have the software, you can download it from www.kodak.com/go/easysharesw

Just put a picture on the picture tray and click on print at home. Change the print size and play around with it.

Kodak Easy Share 5500 will not print anything with black in it


Go here:

http://www.kodak.com/go/aiotroubleshooting

Within the tool, select Print quality, then No black, missing text, or text quality.

After answering all the questions (assuming you haven't abused your printhead) you will be prompted to enter a service number, name, and address to be mailed a replacement printhead.

I just went through this and was told my printhead would arrive in 2 to 5 business days.
