Question about Kodak Easyshare Z812-IS Digital Zoom Digital Camera

1 Answer

I have a kodak z8121s and I have been running it with regular aa batteries but it uses them up so fast so I decided to go ahead and spend over $100 to buy the kodak lithium 3.7v rechargable battery klic8000 with a charger and guess what the battery will not work in my camera. I know that the battery is the right battery and I know that the battery works because my daughter has the same camera and it works on hers. so my question is what would cause a brand new battery not work on my camera

What kind of charger does this Kodak Dashboard CW330 take?


The original battery pack is nothing but 2 AA batteries held together with a plastic holder, you can use regular AA rechargeable batteries and save some money. I had a similar camera with the original battery pack held together with some plastic holder, I simply substituted that battery pack with 2 regular rechargeable common batteries and camera works the same.

My Kodak easy share is 5 yrs old. can I charge it without the printer dock as I want to take it overseas?


Depending on which camera model you have, you can use regular (lithium!) AA batteries in these cameras, no need to buy the specialty 2-battery rechargeable pack and use the printer dock to charge. You can go with regular NiMH rechargeable batteries as well.

Does this camera operate on regular AA bateries. Put 2 brand new ones in and it will not power up. The manual says Kodak does not "support" Alkaline batteries....


Probably this old chat may help you to resolve your problem.

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,

Why does the battery run down so fast????


CRV3 Lithium.

These type of batteries run out quickly, because they are basically just 2x AA Rechargable tapped together. Cameras using these kind or just AA batteries run out quickly and don't last so long. Its always on and running as long as the connectors are touching (Positive and Negative) conductors.

Resolution:
Take out the batteries when not in use
If you have the budget, buy a new camera; stay away from these type of battery cameras
-Price ranges from 100USD-1,000+USD

Good luck, and rate my response.

I have lost the original battery that came with my Kodak easyshare C310 camera. Can I use regular AA's in the camera?


Voltage is the same 3.0 volts.
How do you plan to put them in series?
Since the battery pack I am looking at only has two connecters??
And the replacement is only 8.50, I pay 5.00 for two AA's around here.
Battery code CV-R3

Brand new AA batteries last only a few minutes, i.e. 5 new pictures. why?


Are you using normal AA batteries? i.e. non-rechargeable ones? If so, this is probably why... Digital cameras will **** these dry super fast. You will need to use some AA Nickel Metal Hydride rechargeable batteries (NiMH) with at least 2500mAh capacity to get some decent run time.

Batteries...


Hey Fish stix,
AA batteries all have the same output no matter what type they are so AA lithium rechargeable batteries should work fine in your camera, and probably better. I hope this helps!

Sincerely,
Allan
