    I am having the same problem. All systems appear to be functioning normally, but when the shutter button is depressed, nothing happens.

    my camera has the same problem. 3 years old. when i press the shutter release button, the camera focuses, it just shows red. will not go to green. i've pressed it all the way down and it will not take the picture. tried resetting the camera. checked if it set on a timer. nothing. please help!

    same problem here. press the button and nothing happens. battery is fully charged.
    the green light to the right of the view finder blinks and the red light below it is solid red.
    any ideas?

    the same problem, camera fully charge, everything seems to work ok but not picture is taken. I've tried resetting, removing memory card with no joy.

  • mdplus6-web Aug 23, 2008

    Same problem. Turn the camera on. Compoase image in viewfinder (or LCD), half-press shutter button, green focus square, green light near viewfinder on - all normal. Press shutter button completely, and the red light comes on near the viewfinder but nothing else.

    No noise, no picture.

    Tired both with and without SD card installed - no difference.

    Reset the camera - nothing.

Easyshare Z5120 won't transfer pictures to computer


The best way to transfer pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.

Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use any photo management program such as Picasa.

How to capture best picture


That depends on what you're taking a picture of, and on what you want that picture to say to the viewer. The best procedure for taking a portrait won't be the best procedure for taking a landscape, for example. You probably won't want to take a picture of a grandfather the same way you'd take a picture of his granddaughter, either.
That's just the technical side. You also have full control of the artistic side. You decide on the camera position, the time of day, vertical or horizontal orientation, etc. Sometimes you can reposition the subject, sometimes you can't (buildings, trees, and mountains are a little difficult to move). You decide what's in the picture and what's not. You decide whether the picture should be bright or dark.
The camera is just a tool. You're the photographer.

Sometimes when i try to take a picture all i get is a clicking sound. eventually it will take the picture, but not sure why this happens randomly or why it stops


There's likely a problem with your shutter, maybe it won't be properly triggered by the electronics.
You should let someone from a camera store look at it, there won't be an easy "at home" solution.

When transfering pictures from camera to PC EasyShare will not transfer some pictures. "picture already exists" in My Collection. These are all new pictures taken with blank memory card. This occurs even...


Scrap the camera! Kodak hasn't and won't address the problem. Most picture download software won't recognize the camera. The only solution is to remove the memory card from the camera, put it in USB adapter and treat it like a flash drive. Cumbersome. Awkward. Stupid. After you scrap the ****, tell your friends so they don't make the mistake of buying a Kodak.
