I have a Kodak DX 3700 digital camera that as a battery problem.
When the camera was supplied, it was provided with KAA2HR 1600mAh Ni-MH 1.2v x 2 battery, yet checking for battery replacements it would appear that CR-3V battery is being recommended for this camera. In fact the camera went back to Kodak for repair, and the supplied a free KAA2HR replacement battery.
It came to the point that the KAA2HR two battery unit was dismantled, so each battery could be recharged on an independent charger instead of the Kodak Docking Station device. This method as worked fairly well.
I have just purchased a replacement KAA2HR battery with a bigger output 2200mAh, and attempting to charge via the docking station, the red charging light is blinking constantly, which is suggesting a possible 'non-charging' process. Checking with Kodak, they are now offering no support or advice on the DX 3700.
Question (and I have tried to look this up - without success): (1) Should the Docking Station cope with the extra charging required and (2) Why supply KAA2HR, when its being advertised that the CR-3V will do, yet this appears to be a different battery type?.
muddypaws, thanks for the response. I am already using that option, including charging the 'dual-fixed' batteries as individuals, so that I do not need to break open the battery holder.
The point that I cannot understand is how KAA2HR was supplied, but trying to get replacements, the CR-3V (previously CR-2V) is being recommended as compatible, but I seem to find this as not been the case for this particular camera.
Woolwell, I had a look at the Kodak website for support earlier, and what is confusing is that Kodak seem to state that the CRV3 lithium are non-rechargeable (1 use only), yet everywhere else I have checked indicates that they are rechargeable. Indeed I purchased a CRV3 (CR-3V?) and found that it was rechargeable, but possibly not through a Docking Station at an higher power capacity?.
