Error #e21 I've got a kodak easyshare v610, which is RUBBISH!!!, but apart from that at least I was really looking forward to make some simple photos on it, but after half a year of using it ERROR E21 appeared on the screen! It's switching off or freezing and showing photos in many different colours saying "error e21" constantly! I don't have any warranty on it. What should I do? Chuck it away? I've paid for it £350 + SD memory card £50, I know, now new one is worth no more than £120...
