20 Most Recent Kodak Easyshare Z812-IS Digital Zoom Digital Camera Questions & Answers

Not really. The only "extra" energy required is the use of the flash and 10 photos should not affect that. You said it was a "new" battery? You might take it back to where you bought it. Are you giving it enough time on the charger to fully charge? If the battery is new, your first charge should at least night. Good Luck

Try NOT connecting your camera to your 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 ( http://picasa.google.com ). If you insist on connecting the two, what version of what operating system are you using? What program is showing you the box?

Press the Drive button (marked with a one-handed clock) to cycle through the available self-timer modes. Once the self-timer has been set, you start it by pressing the shutter release button.

The problem is that the lens has become stuck in the barrel. There are some DIY solutions you could try, but the probability is that you will have to get it fixed by a professional.

Use these at own risk as it may further damage the camera.

Firstly , try connecting your ac adapter or usb cable.

Try holding the shutter button while switching on the camera.

Look at the lens , and if some of the lens 'circles' is misaligned or not concentric then try wiggling it (while holding camera lens down).

Try gently pushing or pulling the lens when it extends but this is risky as it may cause the lens barrel to slip out of its guidance system.

Another way to do this is to place the camera lens down on a hard surface and then power it up. Be sure to use a soft cloth or something similar as to not scratch your lens or casing. Let the lens push the camera up and down a few times and sometimes the little resistance provided by the camera is enough to get things going again.

Try hitting your camera near the lens on the body with the soft tissue on the palm of your hand.

Other than that , I would take the camera to a repair center for a evaluation to see if it would cost more to repair than to replace the camera.

If it is still under warranty I would suggest you take it in before trying any of these steps and remove any off-brand batteries or accessories as some stores are really fussy about warranty repairs on camera's with non-brand accessories.

Hope the advise is useful.

Having gone over a month with no response, I assume this is no longer a problem.

Kodak Easyshare... • Answered on Jul 10, 2010

I cannot help you but I have another problem which I want to tell to the world.
My camera is OK but it does not work on Klik 8000 accu's.
I told Kodak about this problem but because the garanty is over, I have to pay the costs of reparation.
On the internet I read that this is a mistake of the 812 is.
I think that someting has gone wrong with this type.
Every time I change the battery I have to reset date and time, but further without problems.
Please ask Kodak torepair your new camera.
Good luck

have you tried a factory reset? or try doing a firmware update, could be the firmwares got corrupted, or have you done a firmware update and it did not update properly ?

1. Make sure you will install a new or fully charged battery/batteries into your camera. Please use lithium batteries Ni-Mh or rechargeable Batteries (2000 M.Amp or higher). 2. Clean the battery contacts. a. Remove the battery/batteries and the memory card from your camera, then wipe the battery contacts with a soft, clean cloth. b. Reinstall the battery/batteries into your camera 3. Turn on your camera without the memory card. (If it works then it?s your memory card that is faulty)
