SOURCE: memory card errors

Could be a camera problem or a card problem. Best way to check is to reformat the card in a computer (do a long format), then reformat in the camera and see if it works.

If not, try a new card. If that doesn't work then you have a camera problem.

Cards don't last forever, so it's most likely that your card has just worn out. Some cameras are more sensitive to this than others, or it could just be a cooincidence that it's only happened in the Kodak up to now.

Put an update on here if this doesn't work, I check threads every couple days and I'll see if can help more.

SOURCE: My Kodak Z650 camera just won't switch ON. I used

Hi there Make sure the new batteries are fully charged before used. After that remove the memory card & try to power on. If its not ON then i suggest you remove the battery & check the that place for any sulfur layer( green colored ) are there or not. Just clean that place & put the camera in sun light for 10 minutes. Because some time moisture make short the circuit board & that's why camera would not turn on. If its a moisture problem then after those operation it will start working. But if your camera power supply converter are damaged then its not possible to repair at home. So go for all these basic treatment & after that if you not success then i suggest you please visit Kodak service center for replacement or repair. Thanks.

Kodak Z980 battery wont last.


I always buy an extra battery or two for my cameras. Sometimes if batteries are over charged [left in the charger for days] or charged too often [charge again after just a few minutes of use each time] they won't hold a charge. Or it could have been a bad battery to begin with. Get a new one and be happier for just a few dollars. Hope that helps, it's what I do.

Compatibility


Just look to the connector on the hot Shoe. Most brand have their own connector. Canon is different from Nikon and Kodak and and and.
In the early days a speed light had only one point in the middle and the outside was the return. Today every speed light has more connection points, and a factory own protocol.

Need to purchase a off/on button for the camers


You could try: http://www.camerarepairservice.co.uk/kodak-camera-repair.html Or: http://www.unitedcamera.com/KODAK-Z980/ I have bought main boards and other parts direct from Canon in the past. Only thing is once you've bought it, they will not guarantee the part for warranty unless they repair it themselves. Just a word of warning. If you do get the part, which I assume is the part you use your thumb on to witch the unit on and off with, the spastic bit, or maybe the switch inside, either way, if you undo the camera, there is a part inside which is a fairly large component leading to the flash which is called a capacitor, google it for a picture of one, anyway, this holds an electrical charge for ages, until it is discharged by the flash. If it is not discharged, it will give you a mighty shock if you touch the wires on it or the circuit board it is on......be careful, and always remove the battery before working on it and wear rubber gloves as some of the components are unite sensitive to electrostatic. Good luck

Says the memory card is protected, reset switch on memory card. Could someone ...


SD cards have a slide switch along one edge. The position farthest from the contacts locks the card, protecting it from writes. The position nearest the contacts unlocks the card. If the switch is already in the proper position, slide it fully the other way and then back again.

If that doesn't work, try another card.

When I turn on the camera I get the message "memory card is protected (reset switch on memory card). What does this mean? I have a Kodak Easy Share Z740. What do I need to do?


Remove the memory card from the camera, look along the one edge and look for a tiny switch, slide it towards the contacts to unlock the card. the switch in the furthest position from the contacts is in the locked position, Now if for some reason the card is in the unlock position, slide it back and forth to reset the card.

Kodak 410 Projector/Viewer - no lite through projector or viewer


These projectors were designed & made by Telex for Kodak.
If the screen stays black when you push a slide down into the "gate" (in either viewer or projector mode), then the trip mechanism that opens the shutters when a slide is detected has a problem. It could be an adjustment, a broken or out of position spring or hardened lubrication.
There is no good way to proceed unless you are trained in the service of these projectors. Contact a factory-trained repair dealer. Happy New Year!
