Question about Kodak EasyShare Z730 Digital Camera

Kodak EasyShare Z730 mode dial

The mode dial is locked in position and won't turn to any of the setings.

    Mode dial stuck solid during warranty and I had to send it back. Came back OK but is very difficult to use again. This is a very poorly designed camera and very difficult to operate. Too many modes most folks will never use especially since they are so difficult to access with the uncooperative tiny dial. My thumbs and fingers aren't that nimble to both push and turn, especially when the mode dial decides to stick. A blast of compressed air shot under the dial helped to free up dirt which seems to be the root cause of the sticking,l but I hesitate to lubricate since that may eventually collect more grit.

Does the "unlock" button depress? When my dial seemed to freeze, or turn very hard, I lightly coated a small piece of newspaper with petroleum jelly (both sides) and slid it all around under the dial. This lubricated the plastic and made it turn freely. Good luck!

Kodak Easyshare z730 - possible problem flexible flat cable. I had a recent problem with a stuck power/mode dial turning too far past the video mode. I was successful in carefully opening the camera and...


It's obviously a switch problem, not a ribbon (which controls the lcd screen) problem. Start doing your research to find that "perfect" camera. Read all the reviews to see what actual owners think in addition to the experts. Or......you can "limp along" until you get tired of that.

My kodak easyshare dx7630 will not power on or I don't know how, can you please tell me how


I found instructions online here: http://webcache.googleusercontent.com/search?q=cache:YS5DhgIqJHEJ:resources.kodak.com/support/pdf/en/manuals/urg00230/DX7630_GLB_en.pdf+kodak+easyshare+dx7630&cd=4&hl=en&ct=clnk&gl=us&source=www.google.com
It says the following: While pressing the Mode dial lock, turn the Mode dial from Off to Auto .
The Power ring glows green. The camera screen turns on. The Ready light blinks green while the camera performs a self-check, then turns off when the camera is ready.
To turn off the camera, turn the Mode dial to off.
Hope that helps.

Have Kodak EasyShare Z730, how do i format for SDHC Card 4GB?


You don't. The Z730 works with MMC and SD cards, not with SDHC cards. While SDHC cards will fit into the slot, they are electronically incompatible. You need to use cards 2GB and smaller.

When I insert a new memory card into my Z730 it tells me "memory card must be formatted" but it will not format. The memory card that is currently in the camera works fine!


Hello. Some of these memory cards have a small lock slide on the perimeter. Check yours to see if in fact, it is in the lock position which would prevent you from formatting. Formatting erases everything from the card so the lock is a protection.

please rate my answer as very helpful.. thanks. J.

Kodak Z730 no longer uploads pictures to computer from Easyshare printer dock Series 3 or directly from camera to computer using USB cable


The problem that you describe indicates that your Kodak EasyShare software has somehow become corrupted. Uninstall the software (use the uninstall feature, not just delete) then download and install the current software from the kodak.com web site (this is a no-cost download). That should cure the problem, but if it doesn't I suggest that you contact Kodak customer service via their web site.

My Easy Share (Z730) is in the open position & will not close.


VERY COMMON WITH EASY SHARE. There are only a couple things you can really do. FIrst, try removing the memory card and try it. Than if that dosen't work. Try holding power button while gently wiggleing the zoom.

Mode Dial Stuck On Camera


Hey i had the same problem. Saw your post and none others. Finnaly i gave up looking and just started tearing my camera apart. My camera is a Kodac 7630 so the diss assembly may be a little different but with the removal of a half dozen screws i got to the inside of the dial. It didnt feel sticky but i took it apart any way and cleaned all the touching serfaces of the dial with rubbing alchohol and my problem is solved. took about 30 min and there was really no danger of harming the camera. Its amazing the just a little stickyness caused the problem i was having because i could push with all my might and the dian didnt budge. i thought a part was broken in there. i think this is because you allso have to push down to move the dial so a little tickyness combined with your downward presure makes it impossible to turn.
good luck
