Hi,


If you have not used your camera for few months the problem may be due to weak/worn out batteries or corrosion on the battery contacts inside the camera which can prevent the full power of the batteries from flowing into the camera. Try solution before you do anything else:


Step1: 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).


Step2: 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. This cleaning clears the problem about 90% of the time. If it doesn't work for you, your batteries may need to be replaced, or the camera may have a problem that requires professional repair.


Thank you !!

Memory card unusable after downloading pictures kodak c142 camera


Hello Gerald, Do you mean after uploading the photos to your PC ? Try to format the card using the camera set up menu and see if this helps, sounds like the card got corrupted during the upload.

Reset switch on memory card


Look at your memory card. SD cards have a slide switch along one edge. The position farthest from the metal contacts locks the card, protecting it from writes. The position nearest the contacts unlocks the card.

I just got the Kodak Easyshare c142 for Christmas, I have tried 3 new sd memory cards and the camera says they are all unreadable.


Your camera can support SD or SDHC memory cards to 32GB beyond that the camera Firmware can not read it. If you are under the 32GB which by the way is a huge massive unnecessary size for this camera the I'd expect two things are holding you up first is the protection switch on the side of the SD/SDHC card I'll include a diagram. This annoying little switch must be i the forward position to read and write to the card.

Also you need to format the memory card to the camera Formatting cleans the surface and prepare the card to work compatibly with the camera. Deleting pictures one by one does remove the picture but it also leaves a bit of information behind and Formatting removes all this unnecessary information. This also means that the memory card should be formatted each time you download pictures to the computer hard Drive

First diagram is the lock switch.

This is a screen shot of the formatting sequence found on page 33 of your manual

How to charge kodak c142? is the data cable which is used for copy the pictures to the PC also charge batteries?


I don't believe these batteries with this camera are rechargable. the spec sheet calls for alkaline batteries. Do the batteries in the camera say rechargable on them. There is a Kodak battery charger with batteries , but that is a multipurpose charger for many cameras, and all it does is charg batteries like any other batter charger.

I have changed my kodak c142 batteries and installed new ones becuse previous ones were finished but the camera is now not switching on!!!!!!!!!!!!


This camera takes AA batteries. I can think of two possible causes for this problem.

New rechargeable batteries are supplied only partially charged. You need to charge them fully before use.

With this kind of battery, it is possible to insert one or both of the batteries the wrong way around. There should be a little +/- graphic or picture of a battery on the compartment to show you which way each battery goes.

The card may have become corrupted. Use a separate card reader and download any pictures from the card. Then, insert it into the camera, go into the menu and find "format"...follow the on-screen instructions.

How do I import pictures on computer inestead of sharing with facebook or email I have kodak c142


The best way to download 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 or FireWire). 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. Or you can use any photo cataloging program.
