Either of the two will work.. it is better if it is a rechargeable battery since you can use it several times unlike a regular battery that you can only use it once.

Try replacing the batteries. Unless the camera came with rechargeable batteries, they usually have to be replaced. Some pc's do not have the capabilities to recharge batters. Double check your paperwork that came with your camera.

Well you mentioned that it worked fine yesterday with the battery out of the box. That should tell you that the camera and the battery are both fine. The issue is likely the charger itself. Try recharging it again, and double check that you inserted the batteries correctly, and that any switches (such as for 2 or 4 battery charge) are set in the correct position on the charger. If this doesn't work, take the charger back to the store for exchange/refund as defective.

Alkaline batteries are not rechargeable...in fact, it would be dangerous to try to charge them. You can purchase rechargeable NiMH AA batteries that come with their own charger. This will save you a lot of money in the future.

Whenever I put batteries in the camera it won't turn on but if I use an AC adapter it works just fine. I've tried Heavy Duty, Alkaline, Lithium, and even Rechargable. The battery door is fine and intact.


The manual indicates that the camera should be able to use either alkaline or rechargeable AA size batteries.

Make sure that you are observing proper polarity of the battery as they are installed. Also double check the battery door. There should be 2 small metal strips that make contact with the batteries as well.

If polarity is being observed (see manual to double check), and the metal strips are both present, then it is likely that one of the contacts on the battery door or inside the camera are corroded, or perhaps broken. In either case, contact Minolta for repair assistance, or battery door replacement.

Have you tried this technique? Rub the contacts in the battery compartment with a pencil eraser and then with a cotton swab lightly dampened with rubbing alcohol.

Double check the batteries and make sure they are inserted correctly.

If the battery is rechargable, recharge the battery and try again.

Rechargable Battery Problem on Kodak DX 4530


Inside the battery compartment, on the same side as the battery cover hinge, you will see a small white mechanism. As I understand it, this is a microswitch which recognises when rechargeable batterys are installed. I suspect this may have been damaged. If so, you will need a rock-steady hand and brilliant eyesight to repair it. Even dismantling the camera is a challenge.

Rechargeable Batteries


This is a triky one. Most cameras will work with rechargeable batteries. If they don't work the most probable cause is this: a normal battery has about 1.5 V nominal charge. Because you use 2 of them you get 3 V nominal charge. Most rechargeable batteries have about 1.21 - 1.25 V like yours. This is given by the technology type used in their construction. However 2 1.25V batteries will result in 2.50 V at nominal charge and some cameras woun't go whell with the 0.5 V difference. You should try other types of rechargeable batteries, maybe some of them will work, but it is recomandable to do that before you buy them, so like I said, it's a triky choice. Try to go to a digital camera shop, they may sell rechargeable batteries more compatible with your camera.
