kodak dx4900

Discussion in 'Kodak' started by antony barker, Jun 4, 2004.

  1. I've just acquired my first digital camera.It was explained to me that
    kodak's are heavy on batteries and not to move too far away from the docking
    station!!!However on a full charge after just a few shots the low battery
    symbol starts to flash.When I used it in the close up mode it actually shut
    down.I switched on again and continued shooting(approx 10% with
    flash)finally running out of juice after 72 shots!!!!!!
    Is this unique to my camera?Could it be a faulty battery?A software problem?
    I would appreciate any help from you guys as this is spoiling an otherwise
    decent piece of kit.

    Sounds like the batteries to me. I'd try alternative bty's to verify
    that the ones you got are in fact the problem.

    Greetings Antony,

    Actually, Antony, the battery issue you note has been reviewed before. Let
    me share a page on our website that reviews this information. Essentially,
    the issue is with how the batteries are charged and how long they may sit
    without use. Once you have reviewed this information and you have
    additional questions, let me know and I will follow through for you. Please
    keep in mind that Ni-MH batteries may not charge to full capacity the first
    time they are charged, or after a long period of non-use.

    The first-time charge of the KODAK EASYSHARE Ni-MH Rechargeable Battery Pack
    should take approximately 2 hours. If the Camera Dock light turns green
    (indicating a full charge) in less than 2 hours, repeat the charge cycle as

    First-time Charge:

    1. To begin charging, place the camera on the KODAK EASYSHARE Camera Dock.
    Refer to your camera User's Guide for details.
    2. When the charge light turns green, remove the camera from the dock.
    3. Repeat steps 1 and 2 until the combined charge time is 2 hours.

    Subsequent charges of the Battery Pack will not require multiple charging
    cycles unless left uncharged for a long period of time (greater than 2

    Talk to you soon, Antony, I will be here for you later if you need me.
