Hey boofrog4,
A grinding noise in a digital camera is never a good sign. I would have the camera looked at by an authorized service technician. You could contact the manufacturer and they should have a list of authorized service centers in you area, or they sometimes will provide you an address to an authorized service center to mail the camera into. You could also bring the camera to a Geek Squad® precinct in a Best Buy™ store and they should be able to send it out to an authorized service center. I hope this helps!

Sincerely,
Allan
Go Ahead. Use Us.

Camera doesnt turn on


The Li Ion battery is going bad, or is not charged fully. When the voltage goes down below a certain level, the camera will not operate at all.

And, using other batteries other than Li Ion won't work, either.

Kodak easyshare z740 shuuter wont work, when i turn the camera on the shutter trys to open and close, it makes a loud buzzing sound while on then it turns off, i have put brand new batteries in and still...


It may be something more serious, or your new batteries may be defective, but the problem you describe is frequently due to corrosion on the battery contacts inside the camera. Remove the batteries and wipe the camera contacts firmly with a clean cloth (heavy corrosion buildups may require cleaning with a wire brush, steel wool, or sandpaper). Remove any residue that may have fallen into the battery compartment, clean the contacts at both ends of the batteries, and reinstall them in the camera. Assuming that the batteries are fresh/fully charged, this takes care of about 90% of the startup problems. I hope it works for you.

Fix flash on kodak z740


to try if the flash is working..

*Turn off the camera.
*Install a set of new or fully charged batteries into the camera.
*Turn on the camera.
*Press the Flash Status button to scroll through the flash options until Fill Flash (the lightning bolt icon alone, with no other letter or symbol) is displayed. This forces the camera to use the flash.

If the flash of your camera will not work, refer to www.kodak.com/go/itg for interactive troubleshooting and repair
