Having problems with your Kodak EasyShare V1003 Digital Camera ?

I dropped my kodak digital camara and when it fell it landed on the lens. Now the lens will not come out, is there anyway to fix the lens?


Answers :

Hi, the lens may have been knocked crooked, unless you can straighten it you won't be able to get the lens to come out.
\015\012Look at it closely to see if it looks uneven on its edge. The other possiblilty is that a circuit has been knocked loose or broken inside.
\015\012the only thing you can try is 1. Knock it straight if its crooked. 2. take it apart to do a visual of the insides.
\015\012 Because these cameras
\015\012cost around $150 its not worth sending in for repair.

Hi,

i used to have a kodak v803 (same camera as urs but it was 8mp instead of a 10mp) and my sisterinlaw has this same camera u have. i bought my v803 on ebay used and it worked great, but it didnt want to focus as good as it used to. so i sold it later on. didnt loose too much on it but i moved on.

my dad has a kodak m853 and same situation as urs. camera dropped on lens and is jammed. the m853's and other cameras similar to that style have serviceable parts. lcd's are pretty common and can be swapped in nearly 98% of cameras im guessing and lenses can be swapped in the M series kodaks i know that much atleast. i swapped the lens in my dads camera and had enough left over parts and i pieced together a red m853 for myself. thats why i sold the v803 on ebay.

my sisterinlaw has the v1003 like yours. jammed lens. i bought a nice brown v1003 on ebay for $20. not much loss and it came with a nice camera case that will fit mine. the lenses in the v803s and the v1003s arent swappable. i learned that today after opening it up.

these kodaks are pretty inexpensive nowadays, its easier to list ur old camera on ebay for parts cuz there are plenty of people that know more than just swapping parts and can actually solder the wires to change the flash modules and the lenses and all the other parts such as the lens we want to swap that are connected by soldered on wires.

i would let my sisterinlaw have the little brown one i just got on ebay, but the flash has finally had its last day. i got maybe 20 pictures with the flash (before it saw the light at the end of the tunnel) that too is soldered onto the circuit board. so this and my other camera parts will be either be listed on ebay for someone that can and know how to use the parts, or ill put it in the recycling bin with the other electronics i have so they dont end up in the landfills.

i was pretty bummed out when i couldnt fix her camera. i guess these models for kodak were the low budget fix to make some money. they work great if theyre in working order.

hope this info helps.
take care.

Moire patterns A few months ago I decided to 'wet my toe' with digital photography and I bought very cheap Mustek GSmart Mini 2 digicam. As you might expect with a $60 camera the image quality is a bit limited due to the fixed focus lens, low resolution (1.3MP) and poor low light performance. Anyway, now that I can see the advantages of digital photography I'm planning on buying a decent camera e.g. Canon S230 to overcome the problems of the Mustek. One problem that the mustek has


The moire pattern is most likely due to poor lens resolution and a resolution that conflicts with the close pattern of the house design. By lowering the resolution. you are making the receptors "bigger" so they dont pick up the smallest details. if ... Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-H1 Digital Camera

I am having a problem with my camera. It works in the sense that it turns on and takes pictures. However, the both the digital lcd display and normal finder display remain black, even after removing the lens cap. I let a friend borrow it a little while ago and I suspect they may have changed some settings, but I'm not sure what to look for to fix it. When it takes pictures, they come out looking very distorted and strange. But, it does take pictures, the flash goes off and a picture records. c

Hp945lens When I fix a wide angle lens to my camera and switch it on, the zoom tries to come out, fails and then turns the camera off. I'm assuming that because the screw-on lens is on the outer fixed lens this is stopping the zoom from coming out which then turns the camera off. What am I doing wrong?

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
