Question about Cameras

1 Answer

My camera has been on a easyshare dock a very long time. One time when the dock was unplugged, I plugged it back in, and put the camera on it. It had a blinking red light, which is had never shown before. I upplugged the dock and replugged and put the camera back on. It seemed fine, but Christmas day when I wanted to take pictures with my camera, the zoom lens would not work, and then I couldn't view the pictures anymore. My husband went and bought a new battery, we put it in, and put it on the dock, it will not charge, and does not work anymore. The dock still lights up, but only one light is on, and I used to see three other green lights lit. My camera is not working at all now Carolina Piele

Terrible time for a camera to fail, sorry. It sounds like the dock might be bad, and failing to recharge the new battery. The old battery may have been at the end of it's life, also.
Other problems can cause these symptoms, which can be power or lens related, but are probably power, in your case.
You need to measure the voltage out of your dock, and verify if it's working, that's the first thing to do. If it isn't, get another one off Ebay, and it might solve your problem.
You should also ensure the battery contacts inside the camera are not oxidized, and clean. Use a qtip and alcohol, or a pencil eraser- whatever you can to clean it.
Here is a blog about power problems with cameras, and might help:

Although you're probably having a power problem, you could also be having a lens issue, and this blog details things you can try:

If nothing helps, take it into a camera repair shop and get an estimate- sometimes it's cheaper to buy a new one, especially after-Christmas sales, etc.
Good luck, and hope this helps.

Kodak Easyshare series 3 docking station won't download photos


No guarantee, but try these easy steps before you do anything else. Unplug both ends of the cable that connects the dock to the computer, wait a few seconds then plug them back in and try the transfer again. If that doesn't help, uninstall the EasyShare software, then go to Kodak.com and download/install the latest software.

Kodak EasyShare Z760 won't charge.


The problem might be that the battery has developed memory and won't charge further. My first battery used to do that, but then I read that you shouldn't leave the camera on the dock all the time nor keep the battery fully charged all the time because of the problem of developing memory. You might try running the battery completely down by taking pictures until it shuts down. Sometimes when my battery is low the dock won't charge (but goes straight to the red light), but when I run it completely down when I put it on the dock it charges properly. I hope this information helps. :-)
