Question about Kodak EasyShare DX4530 Digital Camera
My Easy Share DX4530 digital camera won't hold charge any more. Do the rechargeable batteries need to be replaced or could there be more internal problems? It charges, I can take a few pictures, and then the screen goes black and won't take any pictures. I also tried regular AA's but the camera does the same thing before I can take one picture.
If I need a new one is there anyplace that takes older cameras in on trade.
We have absolutely loved this camera and are sad that it is doing this.
Yes rechargeables need replacing from time to time (after a few hundred charges) or every couple of years.
You can use standard rechargeables but these wont charge on the dock as there is a little switch in the battery bay which the kodak pack presses.
Standard AAs ar'nt recommended for digital cameras but you should get at least a few shots from a new set of alkalines (maybe not if they are cheapo no Alkaline)
There could be another problem with the camera but if you like the camera its probably worth giving a new pack a try.
If I remember rightly (but check as I don't have a 4530 to hand) the battery you want is a KAA2HR and are available on ebay cheaply if you cant find a low cost one locally
If I can be of further help drop me a line
Best of luck

My camera did the same thing. It was still under warranty and I sent it back to the company and they something new in it and it works ok now.

I have read the user guide and it says NEVER use any other batteries than Kodak. I usually don't go for the "selling" tactics however, this isn't a cheap piece of equipment. I would replace with the rechargeable Lithium batteries from KODAK! Best of luck. Jeanne
