Having problems with your Kodak EASYSHARE M340 Digital Camera ?

I have a Kodak EasyShare M340 it was working fine earlier today but now when I turn it on the screen is black and when I take a picture it comes out black too, even with flash I can see the saved pics on my memory card tho that's it What do I do???

Answers :

A stuck shutter is another common failure mode for digital cameras. The symptoms of a stuck or "sticky" shutter are very similar to CCD image sensor failure. The camera may take black pictures (for shutter stuck closed), or the pictures may be very bright and overexposed, sometimes with lines, especially when taken outdoors (for shutter stuck open). \015\012To confirm a stuck shutter, put the camera in any mode other than "Auto", and turn the flash OFF (you don't want to blind yourself for the next step). Next look down the lens and take a picture. You should see a tiny flicker in the center of the lens as the shutter opens and closes. If no movement is seen, then you likely have a stuck shutter. If so, please see this link for further info and a simple fix that may help.\015\012

I have a Cuddeback C-1000 trail camera. Mostly all the pics taken at night are black. About every 8-10 pics will take. The rest are black. Apparently the flash is not going off every time. Even in the black pics you can see a faint image. This camera has taken over 15,000 life time images. Cuddeback will want to upgrade my camera for a newer one. I do not want to do this as I have read the reviews of newer cameras and realize their first two models are the best. I think we have had this

No, it's not the sensor, it's the flash itself the one that is faulty: the components in the power source have aged and now it takes a lot longer to recharge. And the fact that you are trying to use it without waiting to be fully charged hasn't helpe ... Buck Cuddeback Expert Game Camera

When the Camera Is In Manual Mode, It will not Change Focus... I spin the wheel and nothing happens. Also i have just discovered in this mode, if i take a photo without the flash on, it will come out black, even with very good lighting, and when the flash is on, its still rather dark and its only the immediate area, (you can't see the background) What is going on???

I don't know about your camera, but when mine is in manual mode, it allows me to set the aperture and shutter speed but does not affect the autofocus. To make the focus manual, I have to move a switch next to the lens. When in manual mode, are you se ... Fuji FinePix S9500 Zoom Digital Camera

When I turn my 550 PowerShot on, I get a blank screen (black for the most part with white camera symbology around the screen, such as the flash symbol, etc). The screen works, as I can click a picture and see the photo momentarily. I can also view my saved pics. When I select the film mode, the screen looks normal.......meaning it displays a color image of what is in the lens. Have I inadvertently selected a mode which is causing this phenomenon?

Think that you might have accidentally pressed the DISP or DISPLAY button on the back of your camera. This manually turns the LCD display on and off to save batteries. You would then use the optical viewfinder in its place. To turn the screen back on ... Canon PowerShot A550 Digital Camera

Black Screen I have taken really good care of my camera and it has never been dropped. I went on a Cruise a few months ago and one day into the cruise the screen wouldn't show anything.

Pretty much constant but sometimes intermittant problem of the camera fe-210 screen goes black. all functions appear to be normal but it does not see through the lens. So everything is black on the pictures taken. It's like the opening is shut.
