Question about Kodak EasyShare CX7530 Digital Camera
For the past year, I've bought new battery chargers and new recharagable batteries, Have used Alchiline batteries. Have recharged other recharagables, The camera, has batteries with a good charge for a few pictures, then when turned on, goes from green to red flashing immediately. Sometimes I take and reverse the batteries and get going again for a picture or two. Then the same thing happens. Soetimes I lick the battery tips, hoping maybe to get some charge. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't. sometimes I just open the battery case a couple of times and then close it and it works for a few pictures. I'm frustrated with this, once terriffic, but now difficult camera. Any help?
This model is renowned for poor battery life. Some people say using the CRV3 battery lasts a lot longer but my advice is to buy NimH batteries with at least 2600mah. Some Nimh are only 700mah and obviously will last less than a third the time of a 2600. Keeping the use of the LCD to a minimum will increase battery life and using the flash puts a tremendous drain on the batteries so if you can do without the flash switch it off. Combine these tips with a set of 2600mah batteries and I'll guarantee you'll be pleasantly surprised. As a sideline I always have a good laugh when I see an Olympics opening at night or a firework display and all you can see is thousands of flashes going off which the majority only reach about 12 feet maximum and the parade being shot is some 300 feet away.

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.

the camera will work with any brand of lithium but only the KLIC 8000 battery will work as a rechargeable
please look at your getting started guide and check page 1, there's an illustration of the 3 types of batts that will work:
lithium crv3, lithium aa and klic 8000
ni-mh is really not compatible
please check at the bottom of your camera, the three types of batts I mentioned are engraved at the battery door
