Having problems with your Kodak EasyShare M853 Digital Camera ?

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.


Answers :

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.

My Olympus Digital Camera Stylus 850 SW is supposedly waterproof, and shockproof, but when i went on vacation, and took it into the water park, and inside the water. It broke. Water got into it even though the sealed containment's, for the battery, memory card, and the usb transfer area were closed. The screen is now fuzzy, and it looks like a broken tv screen (the fuzzy part). It won't turn on, and right now it is making this noise every 21 seconds or so. I charged my battery for a long time, b

I have a DSC H10 camera. Today I put it in a plastic with a water bottle that wasn't close tightly. It got wet and now I've taken out out the battery and the memory card. I let the water drain out, I wiped out the battery chamber. I turned it on a few hours after the damage was done and the screen is not very bright. Also, now I can't access my photos, but I could earlier. What do i do? Do I have to let it dry out for 24 hours before turning it on again? Do you think the damage is permanent?


Turning it on before it completely dries out usually causes a short circuit. It can take up to a week with your camera buried in a bowl of dry rice to dry out. However, since you turned it on, it may be too late but try it anyway. ... Digital Cameras

Camera I have an olympus camera. I dropped it at a party a few months ago, and the screen cracked on the inside, but it didn't affect the pictures, they came out fine.

Hi. When I power up my Canon A75 to take a picture, the screen is purple, not black. Is this also a sensor problem? Also when the camera is turned on or off, the lens retraction or extension mechanism makes an odd noise in addition to the normal sound. As far as I know, this camera has not been dropped. Thanks for your help.


The purple screen is also an indication of sensor failure, However, the odd noise could any of a number of things from sand/gunk in the gear mechanism, a damaged tooth on a gear, etc... But still, recommend that you contact Canon to arrange the adv ... Canon PowerShot A75 Digital Camera

I have a Fujifilm E900 and I think that i have either dropped my camera or water has been spilt on it. The screen isnt cracked but when the camera turns on, 3/4's of the screen is white with a massive black mark spread over the top of it. then the bottom quarter is perfectly fine, just i cant see or aim to take picures. Plus i think the zoom has stopped working too, as it only zooms so far but not to the full extent that i know it can.

Hey there, i dont know what happened with my Olympus camera, but whenever i put the memory card into it it will turn on but freeze (ex: the screen will just go black but the lens expands) if i take out the memory card then it works fine.

Brutal, it sounds as if you are or were formatting and "cleaning out the card" on the computer. If this is a correct assumption then you need to back up a little and reformat the memory card to the camera. If you have no luck your really have it corr ... Olympus FE-4000 Digital Camera

The cover on the battery and SD card opening on the camera broke off and couldn't be found on the ground. A small piece of cover and the hinge are still on the camera. When the camera is turned on a message 'card cover open' comes on screen and though I made a temporary cover with a thin piece of wooden pop stick and another with some stiff card and taped them on the camera still came up with same message. Can I get a new cover/door or what can I do??


I imagine the only way to obtain a proper part is to send it to an approved Olympus service centre, hopefully under warranty (though I expect they would not regard this as covered).The camera must have some way of telling that the door is ... Olympus FE-240 Digital Camera

Thank you and look forward


Lens errors are fairly common. Usually it's sand or grit interfering with the lens extension mechanism. Or the camera's been dropped with the lens extended. Or the camera has been powered on, but the lens had been blocked preventing its extension. Or ... Canon IXUS 860 IS Digital Camera

My Sony DSC-W30 has a problem. When turned on the screen picture rarely can be seen. It is either completely dark and a picture taken will also turn out dark and unseen. Sometimes the screen will turn on and off many times and then turn dark. Sometimes I can smack it on my hand and it will go black or come back on. The anti-shake button sometimes allows it to come back on. I do not have any screen messages and all the other features seem to work but in a dark unusable screen.


Sounds like a loose LCD connector. It does not sound like a image sensory problem to me. You will have to disassemble it , remove the connector cable then replug it back into the panel and that should do the trick. However I suggest that you take th ... Digital Cameras
