You can take you battery to a place called batteries plus they can check out to see if it is you battery if the battery is good than you have a bad charger. you can get one cheap off of ebay. They are 45.00 plus at batteries plus lots cheaper off ebay and some time you can get a charger and battery combo for half the cost of the charger from them. hope this helps.

Battery won't stay charged


If the recharageable battery is more than 3 - 4 years old then the battery could be worn out.Rechargeable batteries have a finite number of charge and discharge cycles andwill lose their charge capacity over time, i.e. won't charge to 100% andgradually the charge reduces until the battery won't charge up at all. OR Thebattery shows a 100% charge but when the adapter is disconnected the batterydrops off to zero capacity in a very short time. If the battery drops to anunacceptable charge level then the battery needs to be replaced.

The light on the end of the dock stays red. Battery when recharged turns green. When placed back on the dock, then the light goes back to red.


Turn your camera on and look at the battery life after you had it charging for a while. your rechargable batteries may be bad or getting bad. Try trading out the rechargeable batteries or try plugging in your charger on a different outlet at home

The camera won.t turn on the battery charger blinks red when trying to charge both of my battreies


I had the same problem with flashing red light on my charging dock (within 10 sec after 2nd green light came on). I did fix it. There is a rust brown securing tab that holds the battery in place. Mine must have a broken spring..... So, I put the battery into my camera, pushed securing tab over the battery and then wedged a toothpick tip to keep battery tab in place. Once back on the charger, I had no more flashing red light. The battery is charging correctly. The problem was that the battery was not held down into place correctly. I now just have to unwedge the toothpick tip to remove the battery...but not really an issue at all as I keep the battery in there all the time. Very easy fix!!!
Others suggested to reseat the plastic dock. But mine was secure. Somewhere there is not a good battery connection that is causing the red flashing light. I am thankful to figure it out. Hope this helps you.

My Kodak Easy Share DX6490 will not turn on. When I place it on the charging dock, the lights flash like it is transferring photos to my computer and the flashing won't stop even if I remove the camera...


Hello, sounds like you have a faulty battery,if the battery is several years old it will lose the capacity to boot the camera and the dock is trying to charge a defective battery,if you get a new battery, charge it for at least 6 hours or more.Hope this solves your problem.
Regards,Russell

Won't charge battery


Your problem may be due to corrosion on the battery contacts inside the camera which can prevent the full power of the batteries from flowing to or from the camera. Try this free fix before you do anything else: remove the batteries and wipe the camera contacts firmly with a dry cloth (heavy corrosion may require cleaning with a wire brush, steel wool, or sandpaper). Remove any residue that may have fallen into the battery compartment during cleaning, then wipe both ends of the batteries and place them back in the camera and try the charge again. This cleaning clears the problem about 90% of the time. If it doesn't work for you, the dock may have a problem that requires professional repair.

Red flashing light on battery indicator on the loading dock.


My Z760 does the same thing. When that happens I run the battery completely down by taking pictures until it shuts down. Then when I put it on the dock it charges properly. Don't leave your camera on the dock all the time and don't try to always keep the battery fully charged--instead it will develop memory and think it needs to be fully charged to run and will give you a low battery signal earlier than it should. Wait until you actually get a low battery signal before charging and it should help, but mine will still give me the red light sometimes. Then I run the battery out like I said before. I hope this information helps. :-)

Kodak EasyShare Z760 won't charge.


The problem might be that the battery has developed memory and won't charge further. My first battery used to do that, but then I read that you shouldn't leave the camera on the dock all the time nor keep the battery fully charged all the time because of the problem of developing memory. You might try running the battery completely down by taking pictures until it shuts down. Sometimes when my battery is low the dock won't charge (but goes straight to the red light), but when I run it completely down when I put it on the dock it charges properly. I hope this information helps. :-)

Recharge batteries in camera on g610 printer dock?


Hi, I think I can answer your question, i just tried something with my camera and camera dock.

My camera came with a Kodak battery pack(pack that looks like 2 batteries connected together). When I place my camera with this battery pack in it on the dock, a green light comes on on the dock and the batteries begin to charge. However, when i place any other rechargeable batteries in the camera on the dock, it has no effect, my theory is that it must be a battery pack, possibly by the same manufacturer so that it will charge correctly
