Battery won't charge on printer dock any more?

I have an easyshare 6000 printer dock I charge my DX6340 on. The charge light on the printer dock no longer comes on and the battery won't charge. It used to show one bar on the charge indicator for a low-charge battery and would charge till it showed 3 bars. It's not the battery or the printer dock - I also have a CX 7300 camera that I can put the battery in and place it on the printer dock and the battery will charge as normal. That's how I've been charging my batteries lately. Any idea what's wrong with my beloved DX6340 and can I fix it? Otherwise the camera operates normaly.

    KSchwarz20, thank you! - I was about to go shopping for a new camera and a little piece of paper fixed it. Wonderful!

I have a similar model Kodak camera. The paper trick did not work but the problem was the same.
I put a piece of tape over the plastic bump on one side of the battery. That pushed the switch in and the battery charges now.

I had a similar problem. If you look in the battery compatment you will see a small switch in the keyway that gets pressed down by the key (the plastic rectagualr bump out) on the side of the battery, if the battery is loose the switch does not get pushed down and the dock does not recognize the battery as a Kodak Batery that it should charge. I solved the prblem by taping a singe piece of paper on the opposite side of the battery so that when it slides into the slot it pushes the switch down, I've nver had a problem since.

Kodak dx7590 camera dock will not light up


Although you did not mention what Dock you are using, I assume it is the Camera Dock 6000. Is the Dock connected with the power supply? Because only connected to the PC with a USB cable will not be enough. Also the LiIon battery in the camera, should be charged at least once. If the battery is completely empty the dock will have trouble to. The dock can be used to charge your camera. Then the lights should indicate the state of the battery. And the Dock can be used to transfer pictures to the PC. But before that will work correct you have to install the software that came with the camera. (Easy Share software)

Kodak EasyShare Z760 won't charge.


The problem might be that the battery has developed memory and won't charge further. My first battery used to do that, but then I read that you shouldn't leave the camera on the dock all the time nor keep the battery fully charged all the time because of the problem of developing memory. You might try running the battery completely down by taking pictures until it shuts down. Sometimes when my battery is low the dock won't charge (but goes straight to the red light), but when I run it completely down when I put it on the dock it charges properly. I hope this information helps. :-)

My Kodak EasyShare DX4530 camera dock not charging batteries.


There was an issue with the 4000 series and the NiCd batteries I remember that had to do with the contacts in the camera.  The charging circuit is in the camera so you have to make sure that the battery contacts are clean, both on the battery and in the camera.

Recharge batteries in camera on g610 printer dock?


Hi, I think I can answer your question, i just tried something with my camera and camera dock.

My camera came with a Kodak battery pack(pack that looks like 2 batteries connected together). When I place my camera with this battery pack in it on the dock, a green light comes on on the dock and the batteries begin to charge. However, when i place any other rechargeable batteries in the camera on the dock, it has no effect, my theory is that it must be a battery pack, possibly by the same manufacturer so that it will charge correctly

Charging...Red Light


This happened to me. The cause was the battery did not fit into the case, This led to poor connection of the battery. After I fixed the loose battery , it worked perfectly till today.

DX6340 WILL ONLY POWER UP WHEN ATTACHED TO THE EASY SHARE PRINTER DOCK


It's the fuse in the battery circuit - happens frequently but Kodak won't acknowledge a problem with the model. Repair costs aren't worth it vs replacement - and Kodak won't repair if not under warranty
