Question about Kodak EasyShare Z12851 Digital Camera

1 Answer

My Dad, 91years old, received a Kodak Easyshare model z1285 from a friend for christmas. no manual. He lives 400 miles away and called to ask if I knew where the SD card goes. Since I can't see the camera I thought I would ask the experts. He thinks it goes on the end but the door won't open. Is there a trick to the door? Is there only a door on one end? Just to make sure I can explain it to him, please explain it to me as simply as possible since I have never seen the camera. Thanks.

The door to access the SD card slot is on end of the camera which is closest to the round knob on the top of the camera.

If you turn the camera on end and look at the door, it has small groove in it that is about an inch long. Holding your camera in your left hand with the lens toward your palm, take your finger nail of your right fore finger and slide the door toward the back of the camera.

The door will swing open, revealing the slot for the SD card. When you get the camera, there may be a "dummy" plastic SD card in the slot. Release it by gently pressing the edge of the SD card and quickly releasing it. The card should pop up about a half inch and you can grab it with your fingers and pull it out.

Replace it with a fresh SD card, making certain that it is oriented with the label facing the back of the camera and the contacts facing the front of the camera. Gently push it into the slot until it seats. Don't force it. The card should go in with a little resistance, but does not require a lot of force to seat. Pressing it too hard will cause it to pop back out again.

If it doesn't seat properly, the card may be flipped the wrong way. The card should go into the slot contacts edge first, contacts facing the front of the camera and the label facing the back of the camera.

I hope this helps,

After taking one picture with my Kodak Easyshare


I've had a similar problem with my Z1285.

The problem is probably weak batteries. The Z1285 requires really good batteries. Standard alkaline batteries don't last very long, perhaps a few dozen shots, less if you are using flash.

I've had success using lithium batteries, not the rechargeable type, but the disposable lithium. Specifically, the AA4 Energizer Ultimate Lithium.

Hope this helps.

Kodak EASYSHARE Z1285 tells me my memory card needs formatted (any card I insert) but then is unable to format them and goes back to saying it needs formatted (3 different cards)


Memory card support for Z1285: SD/MMC up to 2 Gigabyte and SDHC up to 8 Gigabyte.

There is no firmware available online for this model.

The last option could be that the lever on the SD card is making the SD card data protected. Please turn the lever to the correct side.

I hope it works out

We have a kodak easyshare Z1285, it is only 1 year old and the last time it was used the lense extended and the camera will no longer turn on. We have tried new batteries, no change.


Pls. use lithium batteries Ni-Mh or rechargeable Batteries (2000 M.Amp or higher).
Make sure that you are installing a fresh/ full charge battery

Remove the battery
Clean the metal contacts on the battery using a clean cloth

Pls test with an alt. batt.

How to transfer pictures from Kodak EasyShare Z1285 to computer


The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.

Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use any photo management program such as Picasa.

Kodak Easyshare Z1285


Are you using the batteries listed as compatible according to the cameras battery door? Or are you using NON-compatible Alkaline or Ni-Cad batteries? Only Li-Ion and Ni-MH are compatible. Hope this helps...
