Having problems with your Kodak EasyShare V1003 Digital Camera ?

I purchased my V1003 in the Fall of 2007. Was pleased with its performance. A few weeks ago, I inadvertently dropped it overboard. I retreived it before it sunk but it was virtually submerged. It is inoperative with the lens out. Can it be repaired and if so, who and what would it cost.

Answers :

It would be better to replace the camera.

But here are some things that couldn't hurt.

1.Remove battery get some rubbing alcohol 90pcnt if possible. (not the green stuff)
2.) Batteries may be shot
3.) Soak entire camera in rubbing alcohol
to disipate the water. soak for about 10 minutes

4.) remove from alcohol then let dry for a day or 2 blow dry first to get most of alcohol dry then pack in silica gel (stuff that comes in little packets in shoes and leather jackets

HOPE For the best.. or buy a new camera

Lens inoperative? When camera is turned on, there is no image on the screen, just flashing horizontal lines. It will take a picture and the flash goes off, but the result is a picture of the flashing horizontal lines. Any fix for this? Is the camera repairable? Would we send it back to Canon for repair? What would be the approximate cost? Thank you.

I have a Canon Powershot S30 with a bad LCD. Otherwise working. I also have one with a working LCD, but the lens will not extend. I'd like to make one out of two. Is there a manual with exploded views available so I can do it myself or is that unrealistic. I have several cameras, so I suspect that a professional repair would cost more than the camera is worth. Like most electronic relics, it seems to be cheaper to replace than repair.

My SD850is was dropped,there is a slight split on the bottom (looks like 2 screws are missing). When you turn the camera on, it says "lens error - restart camera" and then shuts off.

For Christmas this year, a friend gave me a Kodak EasyShare M753 7 mp 3x optical zoom. I have the use of only hand and I dropped the camera on my desk(about 1-2 feet). One side of the lens jammed and would not release and would not take pictures. I kept fooling with it and the black bars in the lens came out. I would think it needs a new lens. Could you tell me how I would go about getting it fixed and the approximate time and cost would this involve.

I have a Nikon D-80 with 18-135 kit lens. after 2 years 5 months (and thus out of warranty) very careful use, it displayed ERR and froze. No change of lens, reset etc. made any difference. The place where I bought it said it had to go to Nikon UK for repair (carriage charge GBP20). Estimate for repair is GBP150. Is there a problem with this camera/lens combination that would make it of unsatisfactory quality under the UK Sale of goods act 1979? Thanks in advance
