Having problems with your Kodak EasyShare C330 Digital Camera ?

I live in Somerset, U.K. I recently dropped the camera damaging the battery lid. It keeps springing up. Can this be repaired, and if so where in the UK.


Answers :

I suspect you may ashion aalready know the answer to this, but just to confirm your suspicions the\012 answer is that unless you can repair this yourself, the camera is a write off.

It's an obsolete model and was a very low cost camera. Kodak no longer support it and never even had many spare parts for it as even the cheapest repair whilst still under warranty would have cost them more than chucking your camera into the recycling bin and sending you another. About the only part that was available was a spare battery cover door, but Kodak UK didn't usually have it in stock and it had to come from the USA. This company in San Diego, USA claims to have them in stock still at a reasonable price and shipping isn't at silly prices, but if you then have to pay someone to fit it then you may as well buy a new camera. The part does come with fitting instructions though.

What follows is general advice as it's been a very long while since I had a C330 given to me for repair, so I don't recall exact details of the battery cover mechanism, if this section is not relevant then please accept my apologies and disregard this part of my reply:-

If the fault is due to a plastic tab on the body breaking off, then it's usually possible with a bit a patience and a few basic tools to fabricate a new one using a short length of paper clip wire. It will need to be suitably bent to shape and you'll need to use miniature files and a craft knife to cut away what remains of the old plastic tab and to cut a channel to allow the new one to sit comfortably. When all is cut and shaped to fit the new tab can be secured into place using epoxy resin (do not use the 5 minute setting variety, even half an hour setting epoxy might not allow you sufficient final adjustment time).

I hope that my reply has been of assistance to you, if so please reciprocate by rating my answer.

My Sony Cybershot Camera was dropped in water accidentally the other day. I have let it dry out as much as possible for 2 days. When I tried to use it, the camera still takes pics as it did before but it keeps saying "insert memory card" Anything more I can do? Is it worth trying it on with Sony as it's only 4 months old. Only thing is that I know that water damage is not normally covered. If they see water damage, will they bill me for the repair?

Everything seems to be working but the shutter release button. It does nothing, even depressing the button halfway for metering shows nothing. no indicators in viewfinder info line.

Camera not dropped, or damaged in any way, its a sudden problem i cannot seem to troubleshoot.

I have a Nikon Coolpix S610 (I think model #32507688). The little orange battery lock that keeps the battery in place broke and fell out. The outer door does not hold the battery in and the camera does not work or shuts down if we don't constantly hold the battery in place during use. Can I purchase this piece and replace it myself. Quotes on a repair of this is almost as much as a new camera. Thank you in advance for your assistance.

My S500 is now 7 years old and always functioned very well. Recently it no longer switched on even though batteries fully charged. Tried again a couple of weeks ago and it worked perfectly, a few days later no good again; then today switched on OK and working. Obviously I have an intemittent problem.

My olympus stylus tough 6000 keeps reverting to internal memory even when it has a memory card inside it. This is usually not a huge problem because i can pop the battery slot open and then take out the card and put it back in and it will usually fix the problem but i will be scuba diving in the bahamas in mid june and i have an underwater housing for the camera so as you might see popping the battery open at 40 feet below the surface could have some damaging effects to the camera.

My camera doesn't turn on at all. I took it out of its cover today and I first thought it was a battery problem so I recharge my battery but it still doesn't turn on at all.

Strangely enough, the lens is on and I don't want to use force to put it back inside, afraid that it might damage the camera even more.Should I send it for repair? and if yes, where is the best place to do it? thanks in advance
