Having problems with your Digital Cameras ?

I have a Kodak Easy Share Model C 653 (6.1 MP) digital camera. It worked fine until today, when the LCD screen showed nothing but a distorted image. What's the problem? I am a clergyman, with 3 master's degrees, but none in digital photography. Please use non-tech language.


Answers :

The tech support person, Hemantraj, asked good questions, and determined that the camera needed a CCD imager circuit replacement. He suggested that I contact Kodak directly about repair. I did, and have mailed the camera to Kodak for repair.

Moire patterns A few months ago I decided to 'wet my toe' with digital photography and I bought very cheap Mustek GSmart Mini 2 digicam. As you might expect with a $60 camera the image quality is a bit limited due to the fixed focus lens, low resolution (1.3MP) and poor low light performance. Anyway, now that I can see the advantages of digital photography I'm planning on buying a decent camera e.g. Canon S230 to overcome the problems of the Mustek. One problem that the mustek has


The moire pattern is most likely due to poor lens resolution and a resolution that conflicts with the close pattern of the house design. By lowering the resolution. you are making the receptors "bigger" so they dont pick up the smallest details. if ... Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-H1 Digital Camera

Canon has announced a problem with some of the CCDs used in its digital cameras and camcorders which causes images not to appear or appear distorted.

Distorted images When I try to capture a "superfine" resolution image (1600x1200), the image is distorted - segmented, linear blocks across the image, steps in the image, colour is separated into colour blocks - if only I could send you an attachment to demonstrate the effect - it would be so much easier!  I try to use this camera at work to document problems with equipment. This was my first digital camera - and what a disappointment! The batteries drain almost immediately, and never try to use


There has to be something wrong with the firmware in the camera in order for that to happen. You could take it into a camera store but I have a feeling the cost is going to be too high.\015\012\015\012I couldn't download the manual from ... Vivitar Vivicam 3345 Digital Camera

I am having a problem with my camera. It works in the sense that it turns on and takes pictures. However, the both the digital lcd display and normal finder display remain black, even after removing the lens cap. I let a friend borrow it a little while ago and I suspect they may have changed some settings, but I'm not sure what to look for to fix it. When it takes pictures, they come out looking very distorted and strange. But, it does take pictures, the flash goes off and a picture records. c

Okay, if you're getting sharper pictures with a stable camera, that indicates that the shutter speed is too slow. You can get a faster shutter speed by using a higher ISO. You'll get noisier pictures, though.Up close, you're not going to ... Nikon Coolpix P1 Digital Camera

I have a Nikon S200 digital camera. I took some pictures last night, using the flash. When I flicked back through them, I found a problem. I would look at a picture as it was focusing, and after a few seconds when it was focused, it would distort in all different colors. Also, when I try to import those photos into iPhoto on my Macbook Pro, it says that the files are unrecognizable.


I have seen this problem on a few cameras, not limited exclusively to Nikon. Try replacing the memory card with another one, and make sure the camera is set to use the memory card vs. internal memory. It sounds as if the memory card is ... Digital Cameras

Hi, I seem to have a problem with my Finepix Z1 digital camera. When I take a shot it seems to work ok, and the initial review image seems fine as well. But when I go back and review the image on the camera, or off the memory card via my computer the image is distorted. The best way I can describe it is as if the image appears that I took a photo off something on the tv, with a series of horizontal lines running across the image. The video capture seems to work fine though. Can you offer any sug

I have an old Sunpak 3075G Thyrisistor circuitry Flash that I used to use over 15 years ago, I recently got interested in Digital SLR photography and went to try it out the other day but I have a problem The flash refuses to fully charge up. Even with new batteries , it just continues to emit a high pitch hum usually associated with it recharging, but the ready light will not come on at all. When I try to push the mainual flash button I get no operation so I presume its not charging itself.

Kodak Z650 We purchased 5 Kodak Z650 cameras last year in October.. So far, 4 out of the 5 are not uploading to iphoto in our classroom.  One by one they all started doing this.  We have four Z710, so far they are ok.  I troubleshooted with different cords, reinstalling software, nothing works.  I checked on the internet, apparently it reports problems with the USB connection.  These are all out of warranty and we are a digital Photography classroom and very upset as to what can be done.  Please

Dust Orbs I am having serious problems with "Dust Orbs" appearing in pictures. Mostly indoor pictures. These things are ruining my pictures. Are they caused by the Infrared Beam that the camera uses to focus? Or is something else wrong with my camera? Do ALL digital cameras have this problem with dust? Do DSLR have same problem? How come these dust orbs only appear with Digital Cameras, and not film? I need a digital camera that works indoors. Any help appreciated. Thanks in advance....


Many digital cameras have this problem, though it has nothing to do with the camera being digital. It is small specks of dust in the air being illuminated. You will never see this problem without a flash.\015\012\015\012The reason you see it on digit ... Kodak EasyShare DX7440 Digital Camera
