How to Troubleshoot a Kodak Easyshare SV710

Updated February 21, 2017

A digital photo frame can brighten a room. Much like a traditional picture frame, a digital instrument displays pictures for all to see. The enhanced digital frame rotates pictures using a variety of digital media, such as a smart card. The Kodak Easyshare SV710 works via a remote control that allows you to regulate speed, select images and create presentations. The frame will link to your computer for printing or firmware downloads. Troubleshooting this device includes dealing with some the common issues associated with digital picture frames.

Double-check the power cable. Unplug the cord from the wall outlet and plug it in to a different outlet. If the frame powers on, the wall outlet is not working correctly. Unplug the power cable from the frame and reseat it in case the connection to the frame is not secure.

Turn the power button on the frame off and then back on. This will correct the problem if the power button is stuck between positions. This will also resolve many screen errors you may receive on the frame display.

Replace the batter in the remote control if this device is not working. Check the switch on the frame to ensure it is in the on position when using the remote.

Check the memory card. You must use a certified SD/MMC card with this frame.

Reseat the memory card. Eject the card and reinsert it into the card drive on the frame.

Insert a different card into the slot. If the second card works, the first may be faulty.

Unplug the USB cable to your computer. Click on the green arrow icon at the bottom of your computer desktop. Select the frame from the list of running process and press the "Stop" key on the dialogue box. Unplug the USB connection and reseat it. Let the computer recognise the frame and install the driver.

Uninstall the software and run the set up again. Click on the "Start" button at the bottom of your desktop. Select the "Control Panel" from the Start menu options. Click on the "Remove software" option on the Control Panel. Locate the software for your frame and uninstall.

Insert the disk that came with your frame and rerun the installation. Follow the on-screen instructions for installing the proper software.

Go to the Kodak digital frame support page and download the software if necessary (See Reference section for link). There may be a more current version of the software available.
