Having problems with your Kodak EasyShare M853 Digital Camera ?

Couples of month a was at the sea taking pictures, and days after the camera turn on and then turn off automatic, and the lens stay out.I dont know if was the humedity, or something like that

Answers :

No, it was the salt spray which dried out leaving salt residues in your camera. Sorry, but there's nothing you can do. It's very corrosive and conductive and is one of the worst things to expose any electronic device to.

Repairs are not worth considering as they'll cost more than the camera is worth and unless everything is replaced there will be recurrent faults.

If you use another camera in the same environment again then protect it by using a special weatherproof pouch, a waterproof housing or just adapt a plastic sandwich bag.

Lens error I have an ixus 230 HS - I turned it on the other day & I must have bumped the lens or something, as it shut down. The lens stayed out though & wont close, when i turn it on it starts beeping at me & "Lens error, Will shut down automatically. Restart camera" comes up on the screen, it then shuts down again.

Ruined Screen My friend's screen is ruined. When it's off you can see some damage or something on the screen. When I turn it on I get this. http://i31.photobucket.com/albums/c386/Judas_Iscariot_X8792/Camwithbrokescrean.png Also the lens doesn't "grow" out like it should when you turn it on. It hasn't been dropped in water, nor has it fallen to the ground and broke that way. Does anyone know if this can be fixed. I also don't know if this cam is under warranty.

Kodak has a web site where you can enter the serial number and check warranty status, if it is less than a year old and has been registered it is possible it will be covered. This is just a guess on my part. ... Kodak EasyShare M853 Digital Camera

My camera won't stay on. It turns on and lens goes out and adjusts and then retracts in and camera turns off. I am in the process of taking it apart to figure it out but unless it is a problem of the screws needing to be tightened I don't know what to do next. Can you help me or refer me. I bought this camera used and really like it and want to keep it if I can. I have had so much trouble keeping digital cameras working. Thanks

The problem you are facing is most likely to be lens related. Perhaps it is not able to extend fully and hence retracing and turning off. The cause may be a mechanical obstruction. However before we try anything else, remove the battery hold for 1 mi ... Pentax Optio E30 Digital Camera

Lens stuck I had been turning my Sony Cyber-shot DSC W50 off and on a few times, when suddenly as I went to turn it off, the lens got stuck and couldn't retract--just made this horrible mechanical noise like it was trying to do so but something was awry. Then this message comes up on the screen "Turn the power off and on again." I do as asked. Nothing. I take the (fully charged) battery out and see if that does the trick. Nope. No matter what I do, the lens will not retract, regardless of how ma

I mistakenly dropped my digital camera a few inches when the lens was out.When i tried putting it off to know if the lens would go back in,it didnt move so i forcefully pushed it back inside.Now, when i try putting it on ,the green light flashes,then goes off and the lens attempts to come out but its like its stuck or something pulls it back inside.from what i noticed the camera cant come on without the lens coming out.pls i really dnt know what to do

You've likely jammed the zoom motor in the lens. You're correct in thinking that the camera can't work without the lens out. With it being physical damage repairs wouldn't be covered under warranty so you either need to pay to have it repaired (if th ... Digital Cameras

Slider Prob I've had my S30 for quite a while and lately i've had some problem with the slider opening up. Dont know if something got in between the slider and the cam or something. Anyway with some trouble i could still open up the slider and thus start up my cam but then one day when i was trying to close my cam i started to slide it to close. Finally it closed and i slided the slider onto the lens but then the lens started to open up again. But the slider was in the way so the lens opened up

Hello, I have the s7000. My batteries seem to be fine. It does not save the pictures quickly like it used to. The green light at the back stays orange for a while, then flickers orange/gree, then it has saved the photo and i can shhot again. Also when i turn it off, if the light is orange it will not close or retract the lens. Only after a few seconds, quite a few will it close. I also notice the pictures are not as sharp as before. Also, a few times the lens has not come out when turned on,

The saving issue may well be helped by unloading the photos from the memory and memory card and then reformatting it. It is recommended that the memory be reformatted after every download of photos rather than just extracting them and using the ... Fuji FinePix S7000 Digital Camera
