Having problems with your Kodak EasyShare C613 Digital Camera ?

Kodak c613 will not turn on. batteries have been replaced


Answers :

I purchased a Kodak camera model Easyshare C330, but there was a problem on the lens. When I turned the camera on, the screen shows the error 15 and 25. It says something about "Lens error" and "Lens stepper motor error".
\015\012I was looking for some information on internet about how to fix this problem and I found this is a common failure on Easyshare kodak cameras. So far, this problem affects models DX 4530, V550, C310, C330, C643 C743, LS443 and who knows how many models.

The solution posted on internet is so simple: Hit it. bang the camera and the lens will work again. Even a woman said she was so upset, she throwed the camera against the wall and miracle!, it was working again.

\015\012So, How is possible that "banging" the camera will fix it? Doesn't make sense.
\015\012My camera have no serial number as it was erased because the use (Kodak, next time, engrave serial numbers), so I was not able to determine if it still under warranty. Kodak charges more than $100.00 to fix it plus shipping and handling... a new camera is less than $100.00
\015\012I decided to find the reason who those camera fails, even the Nikon cameras (coolpix models) have the same problem, specially the L3 and L4. As I have experience on electronics and destroying some items, I decided to find the source of the failure by myself.
\015\012

\015\012First, I removed 6 screws from the camera.
*** Warning *** Do not try this. Hi-voltages are present on all digital cameras.
\015\012
\015\012
To remove the front cover, I had to remove two screws on the side.
\015\012
Before removing the cover, I had to pry the trigger to remove it. Now, the front will come out.
\015\012
Now, after receiving a nasty shock becase I was not careful enough, I had to discharge the capacitor. It contains more than 300 volts with a high current charge. Believe me: You shoud NOT try to open your camera unless you know what are you doing.
\015\012
After removing the cover, I found there is no access to the lens mechanism, so I had to find another way to disassemble it. While looking, I saw the low quality work done on the camera during assembly at the factory.
\015\012
To access the lens, I had to remove the display. Removing it carefully as I had to use a flat screwdriver taking care of the ribbon cable. The white and pink cables are hi-voltage cables.
\015\012
Under the display, there are four screws that needs to be removed.
\015\012
\015\012
Finally, I have access to the lens. Now, I have to remove three (maybe four) more screws to see the lens mechanism and find why those cameras fails.
\015\012The CCD is completely exposed. It should be protected and avoid any contact with it.
\015\012
Finally, Here is the problem: Teeth gears are broken.
\015\012Those gears are tiny that, actually, it breaks easily.
\015\012So. If you have a Digital camera with "Lens Error", you may be able to fix it banging it because the broken tooth is jamming the mechanish. When you hit the camera, the tooth broken will fall and the mechanism will work again...
\015\012
... but it will not work for too long. Slowly, other tooth gears will break and the lens will die.
\015\012Kodak, as other manufacturers, saves a lot of money using cheap part. Shame on you Kodak! A simple gear that cost less than 5 cents makes a $100.00 camera completely unusable.
\015\012Well... In fact, is not their fault. Think about it and you will find why manufacturers are using cheap parts.
\015\012
So, If you have a Kodak camera, or Nikon camera with "lens error", it may work again if you bang it a little, but that "repair" doesn't completely fix the problem. It will completely break soon.
Have you made sure that the way you have put your batteries on the right way. The plus side should be on the top left looking at the camera upside down and the minus side should be on the right. They have to be opposite.
