1) Rechargable batteries have a finite life. At some point they'll no longer hold their charge. This may be the case with your camera. 2) Alkaline AA batteries do not perform well with digital cameras or other high drain devices. They can not maintain a voltage level these devices require. It is unlikely you'll get much use out of alkaline AA's with your camera. The solution? Buy a new rechargable battery for the camera.

In reference to my Kodak DX7590 camera. I'm sitting here 2 older batteries, and 2 new batteries that I just bought, and no matter which battery I put in the camera, none will turn the camera on. If I...

Hello Terry, Sounds like you have answered your own question, it sounds as if the contacts inside the battery box are either corroded or damaged. If you look down inside the battery box you will see three contacts, look close for corrosion or damage.

The batteries always seem to drain shortly after putting them into the camera, no matter what type or brand of battery I use. Help!!!

?? Drain as in leaking. If the camera makes the batteries leak you should contact KODAK immediately and they will make a HSE case for you. Contact KODAK: http://www.kodak.com/eknec/PageQuerier.jhtml?pq-path=14563&pq-locale=en_US&_requestid=3490 If you mean the camera is drinking batteries try these steps: 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)

Installed new batteries and the camera will not turn on. The camera has been sitting up for 6 mo. with no use. We used energizer lithium batteries.

Try using recomended batteries:
optional KODAK EASYSHARE Docks with 1 KODAK Ni-MH Rechargeable Digital Camera Battery KAA2HR; 2 Ni-MH batteries AA, 2 lithium batteries AA; 1 KODAK Lithium Digital Camera Battery CRV3; KODAK Ni-MH 2100mAh Battery Pack, KODAK Digital Camera Battery AA (ZR6); KODAK Alkaline Digital Camera Batteries AA; 3 volt DC input AC adapter

You can even contact Kodak direct and they will send you a free CRV3 battery to test with.

Our docking unit is not charging the batteries

It could be a charger problem, or a battery problem (or even an AC adapter problem). If you're sure there's "juice" getting to the dock, the actual batteries are usually the culprit.

Camera will not stay booted up

It seems that the Milli Amps on your rechargeable batteries are to low you will notice on each battery it will show the amplitude purchase a higher amplitude.

Kodak EasyShare Z760 won't charge.

The problem might be that the battery has developed memory and won't charge further. My first battery used to do that, but then I read that you shouldn't leave the camera on the dock all the time nor keep the battery fully charged all the time because of the problem of developing memory. You might try running the battery completely down by taking pictures until it shuts down. Sometimes when my battery is low the dock won't charge (but goes straight to the red light), but when I run it completely down when I put it on the dock it charges properly. I hope this information helps. :-)

Windows shut down when i press dock button

The simple solution is put the dock away someplace and use the card reader - It seems to have a connectivity fault.

Connection Problem

I have a Kodak DX4330 and to my knowledge, do you remember if your dock or usb that you plug the camera into was plugged in when you installed the software? I think that if you have it plugged in and install the software and then try and transfer the images, it doesn't work. You can try to re-install the software and make sure the camera dock/cable isn't plugged in and if that doesn't work, make sure the little kodak symbol on the start taskbar is visible when you press the share button. i hope that this helps you.
