Having problems with your Kodak Easyshare M753 Digital Camera ?

My camera is stuck on a sort of purplish hue, and no matter what i change i can't make it go away

Answers :

Your camera's ccd image sensor has failed; you've described the classic symptoms of this fault. If you find that menus and older pictures taken before the fault occurred display just fine then it's the final confirmation.

It's a very common fault on digital cameras and is to be expected on a five to six year old model, but yours is likely to be less than half that old so has failed prematurely.

There is nothing you have done to cause the fault, and nothing you could have done to prevent it. The only fix is to have the sensor replaced but it's a professional job only and will cost more than replacing the camera. It's only worth doing if the camera is still under the manufacturer's warranty (which is unlikely).

I'd suggest that you contact Kodak customer services; although the camera is probably out of warranty there have been manufacturing faults in the past on other manufacturer's models which resulted in soft recalls, whereby those who complained were offered free repairs (the most infamous example is the Sony five megapixel ccd failure).

If Kodak don't play ball then your only fix is to go shopping for another camera. Kodak are no more likely than anyone else to suffer ccd failures, but for the same money there are other brands which are generally much better image quality than Kodak.
