  1. I'm using win xp and easyshare

    transfer wasn't initiating like it should. sometimes it would recognize
    camera, sonetimes it wouldn't.
    I now have bigger problems. In trying to get the tfr going last night,
    turning camera on and off a lot, I turned it on at one point last night and
    it won't power up properly now. removed batteries, replaced
    batteries....didn't help

    When I turn it on now, the light flashes red for 10 secs and then camera
    turns itself off!!

    I'm kind of worried b/c I won this camera and, as such, have no proof of

    Digital cameras swallow battery juice in huge gulps.

    I recommend that you buy a set of NiMH rechargeable batteries and
    a charger. The batteries will last much, much longer than alkaline,
    and they can be recharged hundreds of times.

    I take it you are using alkaline batteries. This is a BAD IDEA. Buy
    some NIMH batteries and a charger. That is, of course, if the camera
    uses AA batteries.

  6. Thanks!!

    I have NiMH already, the ones that ran out so quickly were the Kodak
    alkalines that came with the camera.
    I'll be using those and have a fresh set always ready.

    Hi Lisa,

    Sorry to hear about your dilemma.

    Tell me all the details of your experience and send me your personal
    information directly so I can review and get you the help you need. What
    model, where you got it, was it new when you got it, did you register it,
    and exactly what is happening. Did you try new batteries in the camera not
    just the ones you had in place at the time. If rechargeables, and you did
    not successfully charge the battery you may be running out of power.

    I am on vacation next week, Lisa, but will be logging on here periodically
    to keep things up to date. I will look for your information if I do not get
    an email from you today.

    Talk to you soon, Lisa,
