Question about Kodak EasyShare DX4530 Digital Camera

My easy share CX4530 won't

My easy share DX4530 won't keep a charge with the NI-MH rechargeable batteries. We also tried regular AA's, it comes on and goes off before I can snap a picture.
Please any help is appreciated

Mine did that and all it was is the door that holds you batteries in gets weak over time. If you hold or squeeze the door closed and it does not happen then you have found you problem. Clean the contacts and try to "bend" them outward to get a cleaner and tighter connection.

I got a dx4530 w/easyshare Dock II. from a friend of mine. He had been using AA batteries and it worked fine. I went to Best Buy and bought 2 Ni-MH batteries and put them in the camera. I then put the...


In the Kodak cameras of that vintage the original 3V rechargeable battery was made of 2 regular AA rechargeable batteries and a special piece of plastic that pushes some microswitch in the battery compartment. If this piece of plastic is missing, the dock would not charge the batteries. You either need the special CRV3 battery or to charge the normal AA rechargeables with a separate charger.

chrissy66 (12/10/2007)reply to this comment (by James DeRuvo - 12/12/2007)Sounds to me like your lens may have come out of alignment. Was it dropped recently? Since your camera is still under warranty, the best thing you can do is have Kodak should fix it. If your camera is out of warranty, or if Kodak refuses to repair it for free, the one thing you can try is to try resetting the camera.

Kodak is also of the opinion that lens errors also occur when you use batteries not recommended by Kodak.

I recently chatted with a kodak specialist about this issue and he recommends changing your batteries to NiMh rechargeable batteries. These are the batteries that the camera is designed to use and using other types - like alkalines, can often cause the lens error to occur. If that doesn't work, then the camera indeed does need repair.

Rechargeable Ni-MH Batteries (AA Size): These Ni-MH AA batteries last up to twice as long as alkaline batteries when used in your Digital Camera - and you can recharge them up to 1000 times in our rapid charger.

Oxy-Alkaline Digital Camera Battery (AA Size).



CRV3 Lithium Batteries: A non-rechargeable battery designed specifically for today's feature-rich cameras. This battery is the obvious choice for speed performance, and long life. It delivers faster flash recycle times and lasts up to 10% longer than our previous design!



Ni-MH Rechargeable Battery Pack: Provides exceptional capacity with its 2.5 hour fast charge cycle time; can be recharged up to 1000 times in the EasyShare Camera Dock or EasyShare Rapid Charger,

The following table summarizes how AA batteries perform in different types of use. Type of Use Alkaline NiCd Ni-MH Oxyride Photo Lithium Most economical when taking more than 30 pictures per month Poor Good Good Poor Fair Most economical when taking less than 30 pictures per month Fair Fair Fair Fair Good Heavy use of flash, frequent pictures Poor Good Good Fair Good Heavy use of video Poor Good Good Fair Good Heavy use of Live View Poor Good Good Fair Good Overall battery life Poor Fair Fair Fair Good Low temperature/winter use Poor Good Fair Poor Good Infrequent use (without dock) Fair Fair Fair Fair Good Infrequent use (with dock) Fair Good Good Fair Good Recharge batteries No Yes Yes No No Solution three: Make sure that your batteries are completely charged Follow the steps below for your battery type: Ni-MH rechargeable batteries Ni-MH batteries lose charge, or self-discharge, at a rate of one to two percent per day, whether they are installed in the camera or not. This means that if a battery is fully charged, after several weeks, the battery will be low or dead even if it was not installed in the camera or if it was installed in the camera but no pictures were taken. Ni-MH batteries are best for those who use the camera frequently and recharge often. The amount of charge that Ni-MH batteries can hold gradually decreases because of usage, aging, and lack of maintenance. To maintain your batteries at maximum capacity, "condition" them when they are new or have not been used for over a month. Follow these steps to maintain (condition) your batteries:
  1. Completely discharge the batteries by using the camera normally until it will not operate.
  2. Recharge the batteries.
  3. Do this three or four times.
NiCd rechargeable batteries Nickel-cadmium (NiCd) batteries lose charge or self-discharge at a rate of one percent per day. Store NiCd batteries in a cold place such as the refrigerator or freezer to minimize the loss. To store in a cold place, place the batteries in a tightly sealed container to keep the moisture out. Before using them, warm the batteries to room temperature. The amount of charge that Ni-Cd batteries can hold gradually decreases because of usage, aging, and lack of maintenance. To maintain your batteries at maximum capacity, "condition" them when they are new or have not been used for over a month. Follow these steps to maintain (condition) your batteries:
  1. Completely discharge the batteries by using the camera normally until it will not operate.
  2. Recharge the batteries.
  3. Do this three or four times.
Alkaline, Photo Lithium, and Oxyride non-rechargeable batteries Make sure that the batteries are new and have not been used for anything else. . Solution seven: Try a new set of batteries If you have tried all the solutions described above but your batteries still do not last very long, try a new set of batteries. If the old batteries are damaged, a fresh set of batteries will solve the problem. Batteries can be damaged in the following ways:
  • NiCd and Ni-MH batteries can be damaged by over-charging. After a battery has been recharged, do not try to add additional charge to the battery by sending it through another recharge cycle before using it.
  • Batteries can be damaged by dropping or sudden impacts. Even if there is no apparent external damage, the rechargeable battery could later develop an internal short or leak while in the camera and cause damage.
  • If batteries have become wet, they may short out and will not work properly.

Red light indicates battery is out of charged.

What type of battery are you using?

the recommended battery for your camera is the AA Ni-MH batteries
now if your using this batteries Ni-Mh and charged it still id did the same thing., How long you already used this batteries more than 2 years now? If yes it means the battery or the Ni-MH is already defective it means that the chemical contect of the Ni-MH is already crystallized and for you to solve it you need to reconditioned the battery or may be purchased a new battery. Gudluck!

Installed new batteries and the camera will not turn on. The camera has been sitting up for 6 mo. with no use. We used energizer lithium batteries.


Try using recomended batteries:
optional KODAK EASYSHARE Docks with 1 KODAK Ni-MH Rechargeable Digital Camera Battery KAA2HR; 2 Ni-MH batteries AA, 2 lithium batteries AA; 1 KODAK Lithium Digital Camera Battery CRV3; KODAK Ni-MH 2100mAh Battery Pack, KODAK Digital Camera Battery AA (ZR6); KODAK Alkaline Digital Camera Batteries AA; 3 volt DC input AC adapter

You can even contact Kodak direct and they will send you a free CRV3 battery to test with.

Battery life of kodak easy share is 2 pictures ... if that


Please check what type of batteries are these.
Z1085 will only work with LITHIUM AA's, Lithium CRV3 (you have to make sure it's not Ni-mh crv3) and a rechargeable KLIC 8000 Lithium-ion battery pack (the blue one). It will not work with any other type of rechargeable battery but KLIC 8000. If you're trying to use ni-mh rechargeables, it will really not work.

Won't hold a charge


what rechargeable batteries are you using and what's your method of charging?

If your using a dock for charging - make sure you have the battery pack kodak kaa2hr otherwise the dock won't charge it

if you're using a separate charger - it's ok to use other AA ni-mh

please check the age of your batteries as well.. batts, even rechargeable eventually wear out - they can last up to 300 charging cycles and a year or a little more than that is enough for you consider buying a new set

if you say that you barely use the cam, batteries still deteriorate through time
