Question about Kodak EasyShare Z740 Digital Camera
My Z740 camera has been refurbished. It was working fine until now. With the best batteries installed, the camera turns on then immediately turns off. I have played w/ the on/off switch and cleaned the pickups in the battery compartment but it continues to do the same .thing. If you don't have a solution, would you know where I could send my camera for repair - Thank you. Brett , Ashland KY.
There's a chance that the drop is irrelevant to your problem. You could try using a small eraser to clean the battery contacts down in the chamber (make sure to dump out any eraser particles) and try a new CRV-3 battery, which because of it's slightly longer body produces a little more pressure on the contacts. If that doesn't work to improve things then your cam might need a repair, your call there. Good luck

My camera was marked backwards - put the batteries in the opposite way and it works like a champ

I have the same problem... cleaning the contacts does not work. I'm using NiMH 2450 mAmp batteries, brand new, and I get a low battery indicator immediately. Camera shuts off unexpectedly. A short search online indicates that HUNDREDS of people are having the same problem. Kodak help not very helpful. I'm ready to buy something else!

I had this problem as well. After spending an hour with a service representative from Kodak, I was told that in order to fix it, it would cost me $60 + $10.95 shipping + applicable state sales tax. I was frustrated when I realized that I may as well just buy a new camera. I then proceeded to gently poke/prod/slam the camera against my hand, but nothing changed. Then, in a moment of inspiration, I turned it on and gently held the outside of the lens as it turned off. When I tried to turn my camera back on, the problem (whatever it was) was fixed!
