Question about Kodak EasyShare Z740 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Software issues The camera software on the computer continually causes the compter to freeze or the program itself closes automatically whenever I try to do anything. The computer is brand new but we had the same problem with our last computer as well. I can guarantee everytime I open the easyshare software that at least one error report will be sent to microsoft.

There is an 'Easy' solution to this well known problem
Remove the software from the computer.
Out the CD back in the box it came in.

Windows does not actually need software to read a camera and there is plenty of free software out there that does work
Picasa for starters

1. The Mouse o There are two examples of a computer freezing up. One is when a single program on the computer is frozen, while the other is when the entire system freezes up. To determine which type of problem a computer is experiencing, attempt to move the mouse on the screen. If the mouse pointer is visible and moves, the issue is with a single program. To determine which program is frozen, bring up the Windows Task Manager. This can be done by right clicking a blank area of the taskbar and selecting "Task Manager," or by pressing the keyboard shortcut "Ctrl+Alt+Delete" and selecting "Task Manager". The program or programs that are frozen will show as "Not Responding" on the Applications tab of the Task Manager. Click the frozen program and click "End Task" to close it. Visit the program's website for specific troubleshooting tips if the program continues to freeze. If the mouse pointer is stationary on the computer screen, the entire system is frozen.
Unfreezing a Frozen Computer o If the entire system freezes up, it will need to be rebooted. To do so, hold down the "Ctrl" and "Alt" keys. While holding both keys down, press the "Delete" key twice. This should shut down the system and automatically restart it. If the computer does not respond, try the keyboard shortcut once more. If it remains frozen and does not reboot, you will need to perform a hard shut down. This simply means pressing and holding down the power button until the computer completely shuts down. Once it has shut down, leave it off for a few minutes and then turn the power on once more.
Continuous Freezing o A frozen computer might be a one-time occurrence, or it could be the sign of a more serious problem. If the computer continues to freeze up, there are several items that should be checked out. The first step to take is looking at any recently installed software. Programs such as freeware or shareware often contain malware that can damage the system. Even reputable software can contain a damaged file. Uninstall recently added programs and determine if that was the cause of the computer freezing up. To uninstall a program, go to the Control Panel from the Start Menu. Select "Add/Remove Programs" in Windows XP or earlier, or "Programs and Features" in Windows Vista. In the list of installed programs, select the one to be removed and click "Uninstall." Follow any prompts and restart the computer when the process is complete. Next, update and run both the antivirus program and spyware removal program installed on the computer, or use the link provided in resources. Check the Windows website and download any updates.
System Tools Finally, you will want to check the available space on the computer's hard drive and use the built-in error checking and cleaning tools. Go to "My Computer," right click "Local Disk (C:)" and click "Properties." On the "General" tab, make sure there is sufficient free space. The "Disk Cleanup" tool will free more space by deleting unnecessary files. Click the "Disk Cleanup" button to run the tool. On the "Tools" tab there are more tools that can solve the problems causing a computer to freeze up. The Error Checking Tool finds and corrects hard disk errors and the Defragmentation tool will reorganize system files, helping the computer run better.

Reboot my pc


Thank you for your question.

I will presume that the computer has frozen and is not responding to keyboard/mouse commands. In this instance holding down the power button until the Operating System shuts itself down is acceptable. This is not the ongoing solution and should not be used continuously as it will corrupt the Operating System. If the computer is freezing continuously, there is another problem that needs to be identified and corrected. Installing new hardware and software can cause freezing and in Windows 7 not installing compatible software does cause issues.

If this is not the case, please repost with some more information and we will attempt to assist you further.

Kind regards

Identifying lock-ups and freezes This document will help you to locate and troubleshoot programs that cause your notebook to hang, freeze, or lock-up. Print this document or save it to your hard disk drive to have the reference available after disconnecting from the internet. Symptoms of notebook lock-ups, freezes, and hangs include:
  • Nothing moves or blinks on the computer display.
  • The computer will not respond to the mouse or keyboard.
  • An error message appears and will not go away.
Freezes, crashes, and lock-ups may be caused by programs locking up resources, software conflicts, or older programs being incompatible with newer operating systems. Follow the steps in this document, in order, until the problem is resolved. Close locked-up programs and locate problem software If your notebook locks up or stops responding while using a program, close the stalled program to continue using other programs. Also, while closing the program, take note of which other programs are running at the same time.
  1. Close the program that is "Not responding" and determine if the lock-ups continue.
  2. If the lock-ups no longer occur after the program is closed, go to Uninstall and re-install the problem software .
  3. If the lockups continue, press ctrl + alt + delete to go back to the Task Manager.
  4. Write down all of the programs that are running when the lock-up occurs. The conflict could have originated by another software application that is running at the same time.
  5. Close other programs that are running one at a time (except for Explorer and Systray) and determine if the lockups continue. Once you find the problematic software application, go to Uninstall and re-install the problem software .
Uninstall and re-install the problem software To resolve the problem that is causing the notebook to lock-up, uninstall the suspected software and then re-install it. If your software came with an uninstaller program, use it first; otherwise, follow the steps below to uninstall and re-install the program.
  1. Click Start > Control Panel .
  2. When the Control Panel window opens, select Uninstall a program.
  3. Select the program that is causing the lockups and right-click it. Then select Uninstall . NOTE: Remove all versions of the same program. Sometimes upgrades will not remove old versions of the software before installing the new version. This leaves multiple versions of the same software on your computer.
  4. After removing the problem programs, close the Control Panel.
  5. Restart the computer.
  6. Re-install the program following the vendor's instructions

Reboots itself within minutes


I think that if you can boot up in safe mode you can slow things down enough to do something. If you can get there, you can stop the rebooting by going into "Control Panel", click on "System", click on the "Advanced" tab, click on the "Settings" box and uncheck the "Automatically Restart" box.
Then you can go in to "Add or remove programs". If you remove the AOL program, you'll probably be good!
Please let me know how this works for you.

Computer freezes up while trying to transfer images


Hi, The only reason your apps freezes is if it is having a hard time communicating with the camera and more often than not it is the memory of the camera that causes this. A couple of things you can try: 1. Rather than direct connection camera to PC, use a memory card reader. Remove the camera memory and use the reader to access/transfer the files; 2. It may be time to reformat the memory card itself which can be done by the PC through the card reader or the Format command in your camera; 3. retrieve files from the camera memory using a file recovery program such as "GetDataBack for FAT" and after all pictures/data/files have been recovered, do 2 above; 4. Try a different memory card (not necessarily same capacity) to check whether it is the memory or the camera itself; and/or 5. Reset you camera (powering off and removing the battery). Good luck and kind regards.

ERROR MESSAGE: "Checksum error."


The Checksum error usually indicates a data transmission issue. This may be due to a loose connection, bad wiring, electrical interference (cross-talk), a physical problem with the device itself, or a conflict caused by another software program. * Make sure that the cable attaching the camera to the computer is secure at both ends. * Close down all of the computer's other applications before attempting to download. 1. Press the CTRL, ALT and DELETE keys simultaneously. This will bring up the Close Program Window. 2. Highlight the program that you want to close and select END TASK. The Close Program window closes only one program at a time, so you will have to repeat these steps for each program that you want to close. NOTE: The SYSTRAY and EXPLORER programs should be allowed to run. Do not select End Task for these programs. You will also want to leave any necessary programs running, such as those controlling a wireless mouse or keyboard.
