A Kodak tech told me to use only rechargeable batteries as regular dry cells do not have enough power and will go dead at the most inconvient time.

Which battery should we use duracell non rechargable or chargable


Any battery but when you are not using it take battery's out because
1. They are being drained when in whether you are using it or not.
2, If you leave them in long term they start to corrode and then mess up the connections where battery's fit.

Satellit 800-batt blinks w/new Duracell alkaline batteries.


Have you checked the voltage on the new batteries.??? Some batteries, even if they are new... have a short shelf life, if they aren't used. You will need a volt meter or battery tester...if you dont have either, take the batteries to a Radio Shack or even a Auto store and ask them to check it for you.

Installed new battey but camera does not turn on


check the brand of battery to be sure it is compatable with the kodak. I found some batteries have a short positive electrode that will not contact the metal plate on cameras battery door. Cheap batteries will not even turn these cameras on.

C743 CAMERA SUTTER BUTTON


there are six screws (#0 phillips) on the sides and the bottom that you have to remove, two per side. Open the battery compartment and remove batteries and leave door open. the front should slip off, you might have to use a small flat screw driver to help the sides seperate. now there are three screws that hold the function button together. with the button out you can remove the old shutter button by GENTLY pushing the two little blue tabs to toward the center and into their little holes. be careful that the button doesn't shoot out and watch out for the spring. reassemble in the reverse order.

Camera will not turn on


It may help to remove the batteries for a few minutes or clean the contacts. Repair of cameras is more expensive than replacement, but it may help to clean and charge the batteries as described below.A friend asked me to clean and charge her new 2000mAh Duracell batteries as described in the next link. Those batteries are still going strong after four months of normal use and have not been recharged.Click this link for other camera tips and complete instructions on cleaning camera and battery electrical contacts. http://www.google.com/base/a/4210404/D13...Also, digital cameras reset to original settings if batteries are removed for one minute. Time varies with function/camera. Check display/setup menu for non-auto functions and date/time. Remove extra memory to eliminate this as a possible problem. Insert fully charged/cleaned batteries and restart camera. The ultimate non-physical repair for software-using devices is reset by removing power ... VCR/DVD players one month.Most NiMH rechargeable batteries lose charge and should be recharged when not used after two weeks, but Duracell and RayOVac new formula 2000mAh NiMH batteries hold charge one year when not used. Also, 2000mAh batteries seem to have a longer life. Did not like these batteries at first, but have 12 over five years old and all are still as good as new. Higher mAh batteries (about one year old) still work well in flashlights, but won't start my camera.CAUTION Do not overcharge! Batteries can be damaged. Use an automatic two or more hour Energizer Compact smart charger with temperature monitor, trickle charge technology, and safety timer ($9.76) at Walmart. Use pre-charged 2000mAh Duracell ($12.97) or RayOVac ($5.97) batteries (both hold charge one year) and a full cycle charge. To preserve battery charge, use the viewfinder.If batteries are removed more than a few hours, the date/time setting and other set-up information will be lost. If the camera is being stored for a long time, the batteries should be removed and stored properly.Carry and dispose of batteries in baggies, blister packs, or other containers to protect ends from short circuit. Batteries explode when short circuited. NiMH batteries are environmentally friendly and may be discarded with trash.The next link is about prolonging the life of lithium-based batteries which last from two to three years, but are very expensive. A Sony series G rechargeable 960mAh lithium-ion battery is $49.88 at Walmart.http://www.batteryuniversity.com/parttwo... ...Camera reports batteries low, but is it low charge or bad electrical contacts? Overcharging can ruin good batteries! The secret to making digital cameras work better is having good electrical contacts between batteries and camera.Digital cameras require lots of power. Bad electrical contacts can cause lots of problems so battery and camera contacts must be cleaned properly. Batteries may be fully charged, but camera will indicate "low" if contacts are not really good. The LCD screen is a low steady load, but when lens extension, optical zoom, focus, and flash charging are added in the capture mode; the load is very heavy. Bad contacts make cameras do strange things like making bad pictures or shutting off with the lens out. NiMH batteries should be recharged when camera reports batteries low. Old batteries can discharge over night, but may provide normal service immediately after being charged. Battery pairs no longer usable in cameras may work well in flashlights. Do not drop batteries or allow voltage below one volt.CAUTION To prevent memory card corruption, keep batteries charged, format in camera, and don't delete or fill card completely. Wait for lights to stop flashing then turn camera off before removing memory. For card readers, double click Safely Remove Hardware. Select, then click Stop and OK.Never touch battery ends or camera electrical contacts. Oil from fingers will contaminate contacts. Use batteries in matched pairs of same brand and rating. Do not mix old and new batteries. New will only do as well as old.Click source link for other camera tips and complete instructions on cleaning camera and battery electrical contacts.
