Yes, they're supposed to be interchangeable. The name CRV3 designates size, voltage, and polarity of the battery.

My Kodak ZD710 Will only let me take about 11 pics and the batteries go dead, I have used the CRV3 battery pack


Welcome to FixYa.

Kodak lithium digital camera battery CRV3 (non-rechargable) approximately can take pictures up to 500 pictures. However, actual life may vary based on the usage.

How to extend your battery life?

1. Use power saving features (using a power saving modes). Limit activites such as reviewing pictures/videos on the LCD.
2. Dirt on the battery contacts can affect battery life. Wipe the contacts with clean,dry cloth before loading the battery in the camera.
3. Battery performance is reduced at temperatures below 41 F(5 degree celcius). When using your camera in cold weather, keep spare batteries warm. Do not discard cold batteries; when they return to room temperature, they may be usable.

Please let me know if you have any questions and if this solution was helpful.


Thank you for using FixYa.

I have a kodak easyshare z710 it says it takes 3 batteries I know where the double AAs go but not the crv3 please help


You can use two AA batteries OR one CRV3 battery. A CRV3 is nothing more than two AAs stuck together and go where two AAs go.

Refer to the illustrations on

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.

Same


the camera has a CCD image sensor, it's not very power efficient - therefore it would have that kind of response if you're trying alkaline batteries (brand new or not).

Please try lithium batteries AA or CRV3. Or you can also try a fully charged Ni-mh batteries. It works all the time! (unless the camera is really in need of a repair - www.kodak.com/go/itg)

Batteries fail in very short time


I had the same problem but I fixed it by buying 2 rechargable CRV3 batteries and the charger. At the time such batteries were not common, so although I got a brand that I never heard of (CTA) and they have been great, They last a long time and power is no longer an issue.

Won't turn on after changing batteries


I may be able to help with your Kodak EasyShare Z740 that turns itself off.

It may be a 'lens extending' problem, or it might be fixed with a combination of button presses to reset it while turning it on.

Try these steps to fix your camera.

I hope that helps.

Camera keeps turning off


Digital cameras are very Voltage Sensitive. Using Nicad or NiMh batteries will not only , "Not" solve the problems above but will
actually aggravate the above problems for one reason.

Rechargable NiCad or NiMh batteries only produce 1.2 volts fully charged and will only give you 2.4 volts when used in pairs with this camera. This falls below the cameras desired 2.8 - 3.0 voltage requirement and will only result in about 30-40 pictures at most.

This camera requires a constant 2.8 - 3.2 volts to run properly. Kodak won't tell you this !!The camera was designed with Oxy Akaline batteries in mind.New alkalines will produce 3.2 to 3.4 volts in pairs but only for a short period of time.The issue with the Oxy Alkaline batteries is that they simply will not last very long in this camera due to its power requirements.

But there is a really great solution to the problem . You can purchase a CRV3 rechargeable Li-ion battery that fits right into this camera.
You will get a realistic 180-250 photos per charge.The Li-Ion battery maintains a constant 3.0 volts for a very long period of time
and will allow the camera to function the way Kodak originally intended it to and can be recharged. You will find rechargable CRV3 battery kits on ebay or other online battery stores at a very reasonable cost.

You can also use a Lithium Non rechargeable CRV3 battery that will give approx 250-300 photos per battery but you may
find non rechargeable Lithium batteries cost prohibitive.

I use the rechargeable Li-ION Battery exclusively in this camera and it functions perfectly since I switched. I have a pair
of CRV3 Li-Ion batteries so I always have a fully charge CRV3 ready to go.

For reference I was only able to get about 30 pictures with the high capacity 2800 Mah Rechargeable NiMH Batteries I used prior
to using the LI-ION Battery. I get on average about 175 pictures per full charge from the LI-ION Battery.
