I have a Kodak CX 7300 digital camera, and the flash no longer seems to work on any flash setting...I have a basic knowledge of electronics, but have never pulled a camera apart..but am hoping that if the flash is dead, I might be able to repair with a new flash "bulb"
Would you believe it was quite easy to solve...I was using a Kodak rechargeable battery pack, and that seems to have just died...will not hold a charge at all, when i tried using a set of el-cheapo batteries, the flash worked fine...so its off to the ocal electronics store, and time to pick up a couple of rechargables and then time to make a new battery pack.
Thanks for the help.
I found a site where I could do interactive trouble shooting. http://www.kodak.com/global/en/service/repair/troubleshooting/troubleshooting.jhtml?pq-path=6198
I am having the exact same problem that you're having. After following all the steps this is what I got:

This can usually be done once the card is installed into the camera. There should be a way to FORMAT DISK with your camera settings. It is usually under MENU, Then you may see some icon with tools, scroll to that and then you should find FORMAT. Under FORMAT, you should be able to format your new memory card.
There is no firmware available online for this model. KODAK suggests a repair for this fault.
However due to spare part shortage this model is no longer repaired. Instead KODAK offers a trade up option where you will have the opportunity to trade up to a newer model 25-30% cheaper than the market price.
hi try to reset ur camera...To do such reset, turn on the camera and hold the menu button down for longer than 5 seconds. A message should hopefully come up on your LCD asking if you want to reset the camera. Select Yes...thank u!!! rate me!!
*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.
