Question about Kodak EasyShare CX7430 Digital Camera

Camera won't turn on

I knew my camera was low on batteries, and while I was camping I managed to get 12 shots and the camera went dead. I replaced the batteries, and that didn't help, so I tried another set of new batteries and it still won't come on. I've had this camera for two years and have never had this problem. Please help me!!

    I had just gotten out to the camp site, we were tenting but, we had just gotten there. When it stopped working, it had no time to get damp.

You were camping Huh! In a Tent My guess Damp Damp is the death of digital cameras. Take batteries out. Find a large poly bag- preferably with a snap lock zip type thing- Get hold of some of those little sachets of Silica Gel Or a cloth bag and fill with rice and salt. This will absortb moisture. Pull all in the poly bag somewhere gently warmf or a couple of days. Do Not turn the camera on.

Remote went dead, tried charging won't charge.

Did you try removing the battery? with the battery removed push buttons then let it sit for a few minutes with no battery in it. Then reinstall the battery and see if it powers up, if not then let it sit over night with the battery removed then reinstall. If all that fails then I would say its a goner

My cyber shot was submerged when the boat I was in capsized. When I got home I put it in a bowl with dry rice. It won't turn on. Is it dead?

Very likely dead.
Did you take out the battery and memory card before drying. Also it should dry for a week.
If you are lucky its just the battery thats dead. So try to borrow a battery from a friend who has the same camera.

Camera wont turn on.

try replacing the battery. Check best buy, radioshack or other camera dealers for a battery. Possible deadcell battery. These lith-ion batteries die with no warning. If there is no change, the camera is defective!! hopefully htis helps

Using up batteries in two days

if you are using "AA" size, do NOT use typical alkalines in your camera, they die too fast. Buy rechargable NiMH batteries and a charger at Walmart or somewhere. These will hold a charge longer for you. Also be sure to turn off teh camera when not shooting because the camera is always draining battery life when "on."

No power

I have the same problem too. I turned it off and it will not turn on again. Bummer too I was taking it camping this weekend and went to check it to make sure the batteries were good and it is dead. The web site said to clean the battery contacts but mine are clean.

Shutter not closing

This may or may not work, please don't get your hopes up. It's primarily a fix for certain Canon cameras that had their battery run down while the lens was extended. Try Fix #2 listed in the following Blog post:

*istD battery problem

Battery charge indicators don't measure actual charge but voltage because there is no cost-efficient method to measure battey charge directly. Instead, batteries are designed so that voltage goes down with charge. Now, the difficult thing is that not all batteries behave in the same manner. It is actually very hard to predict how a battery menufactured by xyz behaves. I would guess that Pentax engineers did not have Energizer AA's in their mind when they defined the voltage alert level. I would suspect that the battery status indicator is calibrated for the CR-V3 batteries that were included with the camera body, or something else. Only wild guesses above... And yes, I have encountered weird inidicator behavior with AA batteries, too. But not with CR-V3. I bet your mobile phone battery indicator plays tricks, too.
