Kodak offers a wide range of point-and-shoot and performance cameras in their EasyShare camera line. EasyShare camera rechargeable batteries can be charged using the battery charger compatible with the batteries. Many EasyShare cameras can recharge the batteries in the camera while plugged into a power source, seated on an EasyShare dock (or EasyShare printer with Dock) or connected to the USB port on your computer. Refer to the manual for your camera for specific information on your camera's features. See the References section for a link to Digital Camera Support to find your camera's manual.

Instructions

    Recharge Using the Battery Charger

  1. 1

    Open the battery compartment on the camera and remove the battery.

  2. 2

    Insert the battery in the charger, ensuring that it is firmly seated. The metal contacts on the battery should be touching the metal contacts on the charger.

  3. 3

    Plug the charger's power cable into the charger. Insert the other end into the wall outlet. The indicator light on most EasyShare battery chargers turns red when everything is plugged in correctly and the battery is charging.

  4. 4

    Unplug the charger when the battery is done charging. On most chargers, the light turns green when the battery is charged.

  5. 5

    Replace the battery in the camera. Battery packs only fit when inserted correctly, so do not try to force the battery.

    Recharge Using the Power Cable

  1. 1

    Plug the power cable into the power port on the camera (generally marked with a symbol containing a "C" between two diamonds).

  2. 2

    Plug the other end of the power cable into the wall outlet (or cigarette lighter for travel chargers). On most cameras, the indicator light while blink while they're charging.

  3. 3

    Unplug the camera when the light stops blinking, indicating the camera is charged.

    Recharge Using the USB Cable

  1. 1

    Power on your computer. If you're using a laptop, plugging your laptop into a power source is recommended.

  2. 2

    Plug the USB cable into the USB port on the camera (marked with a symbol that looks like a stylised three-pronged fork).

  3. 3

    Plug the other end of the power cable into the USB port on the computer. On most cameras, the indicator light will blink while they're charging. Some laptops disable USB when running on battery power.

  4. 4

    Unplug the camera when the light stops blinking, indicating the camera is charged.

    Recharge Using an EasyShare Dock

  1. 1

    Be sure that the EasyShare dock power adaptor is plugged in and the dock adaptor for your camera is inserted into the dock. See the dock's manual for detailed instructions on inserting the camera's dock adaptor.

  2. 2

    Set the camera on the dock and gently press the camera down so the plug on the dock seats into the port on the bottom of the camera. There is only one correct position for setting the camera on the dock, so do not try to force it. Usually, the camera lens points toward the dock cables. The indicator lights on the dock and camera blink when the camera is charging.

  3. 3

    Remove the camera when the lights stop blinking, indicating the camera is charged.

Tips and warnings

  • In order to recharge your camera, you must have rechargeable batteries. Regular alkaline and lithium batteries are not rechargeable. While most Kodak EasyShare cameras take a proprietary battery pack, some accept standard batteries (usually AA). See "Choosing the Right Battery For Your Kodak Digital Camera" in the Resources section to see a list of recommended batteries for your camera.
