Having problems with your Kodak EasyShare M853 Digital Camera ?

None of the buttons on my camera are responding aside from the shutter button and the share button. I cannot review or delete images or even zoom in and out. The only way to review images is by using the "share" button.

Hi!
It's a loose connection between the keyboard and motherboard or a broken keyboard cable. You can remove the back cover (remove front cover first) and\015\012check if the connection is not loose - there's a flexible key board\015\012glued to the internal frame - it may loose connection with the main\015\012board as key board cable's leads are from graphite - it's very cheap\015\012and unreliable solution, cables like these get damaged quite easily. If\015\012the cable is in the connector, looks OK, but the keys still won't work\015\012- the key board has to be replaced. It comes with the frame. If you\015\012feel like repairing it yourself, I can sell you a new frame with the\015\012key board. If not, contact your local Kodak service center or me at\015\[email protected]
This is a well known problem with these cameras and I repair these every day as I work in a Kodak service center.

Hope this helps!

Ok so i am turning on my camera (an Fe-340) and the lens go in two or three times then when the screen finally does come on it is blurry and way out of focus, also when i attempt to adjust the zoom the camera turns itself off, if i attempt to turn the camera off using the power button it goes off but the lens does not retract.All other functions on the camera are operating correctly to my knowledge i can even take a blurry out of focus picture, view it in display mode or even transfer it to my c

Fujifilm A330 My camera is doing something rather strange; it's always switched on by sliding the front shutter open all the way, and it's ceased turning on when I do that. My dad and I figured out that we can get it to turn on by holding the 'on' button in the back, but it won't get out of the menu/blue 'no image' LCD display for reviewing pictures. In the past, holding the 'on' button was what changed it from picture review mode to picture taking mode, and since everything has swapped around t

Lens error When I switch on my Exilim Z-500, the zoom extends only half way of what it used to and there's some cracking noise as if something was blocking it. The zoom is at maximum, i.e. when I zoom in further it goes to digital zoom. But when I try to zoom out, it gives me another cracking noise, a lens error message and switches off. I can't take any pictures because the zoom setting seems to be totally messed up. The image is all blurry - at any distance. I partly disassembled the camera a

Hard reset of Nikon s8100? My menu button isn't working at all. The only one that is working is the round scene-selector button on top...and even that one stops working after I press the shutter button (which doesn't respond either). I've tried removing the battery for a few hours and replacing it, but that didn't help. Is there a way to remove the backup battery as well? Is there a button or a trick to doing a "hard reset" without having to use the menu??

When the camera is on I can press any button and the camera goes off, then I can press any button and the camera goes on.

Zoom Error? Whenever I turn my camera on it says "Zoom error". It won't let me zoom. The image is incredibly blurry. And even when I turn the camera off the lens doesn't shut all the way. I tried resetting it, but it had no effect.


Dirt in the focus motor drive gears right behind the lens at the front.\015\012It's a **** design (my opinion). The lens at the front moves in and out depending on your zoom level. It can come right out of the lens barrell at the front. So, if ... Fuji FinePix A500 Digital Camera

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.

Good evening, I have a DSC F717 serial no 1749705. I lent this camera to my son some years ago and had it returned recently. As I tried to relearn my way around the camera I discovered that the image as seen both through the eye piece and on the display appeared to be stripey a bit like a night shot of car tail lights. The image is unclear. My son has not been using the camera for some years, possibly , and it was stored in his roof space. Any thoughts Please. Drew Wigham
