Having problems with your Kodak EasyShare V1233 Digital Camera ?

My Kodak V1233, isn't working right. If I turn it on, it will only turn on a second and extend the lense and then shuts off (it's fully charged). I can eventually get to take pictures, if I start by hitting the favorite button, and then the camcorder button and then quickly hitting the the camera button. I can take pictures, but can't see them, I only see a black screen. The camera will not power off this way. If I take the battery out, and then put it back in, and hit the favorite button,


Answers :

I have had the exact same problem this seems to be a common flaw in this model i do not suggest any one purchase the V1233
Here's what worked for me (eventually):
\015\012
    \015\012
  1. Tried the cleaining to no avail.\015\012
  2. Made sure the charger was Ok - it was\015\012
  3. Tried a new battery in camera shop that had been charged for 15 mins (I know it's not long but it shoudl at least open) - didn't work.\015\012
  4. Cleared off the memory card (there was a 0 byte JPG on there) but still didn't work. You can't see the internal memory via USB it seems until you can get into the menu so couldn't clear that.\015\012
  5. Performed the firmware upgrade as on other posts - http://www.kodak.com/global/mul/service/downloads/DownloadLookup.jhtml?pq-path=11647/11660&product=EKN033563 - still didn't work.\015\012
  6. Bought a new battery and charged it - didn't work straight away.\015\012
  7. I put the camera back on charge, then removed the battery etc. and had to try opening it several times before it finally started up. As soon as I got into the menu I reformatted both the internal memory and the memory card and now it all seems fine!
\015\012 I'll be taking a spare camera with me for a while though so I don't miss any magic moments.

Sony camera turns on but screen is just bright white, can't see the images I'm taking or the menu. I can press the menu buttons and can tell that the buttons work because I hear the beeping noise.

MY camera seems to be overexposing all pictures taken , so that I can not take outdoor photos at all and can only take photos inside if I close the drapes and block all natural daylight.

Overexposed photos?? when i hit my shutter release button, sometimes the flash doesn't pop up and the view finder goes black. (it's like the camera is taking a picture but when I release my finger from the shutter release button it doesn't release) The only way to "get out of it" is to turn the camera off then back on. when i go to playback...it is a white picture. are my settings messed up and how do i avoid this in the future. Many picture moments are missed because of this!


The view finder "going black" on an SLR is caused by the mirror being up, which is also when the camera is actually taking the picture! The mirror sends the light from the lens to either the viewfinder or the sensor. When it's down, the light goes ... Nikon D80 Digital Camera with 18-135mm Lens

Batteries are fully charged. I can turn my camera on and look through my pictures, go through all the menus, etc., but as soon as I hit the button to take a picture, the camera just shuts off. I can immediately turn the camera back on, but it makes a strange clicking sound before it turns on.

I have 2 pentax optio m20 cameras purchased at the same time. Both have developed the same problem: hit the on button and it tries to come on, but makes a funny sound, lens moves in and out trying to focus (screen is lit showing focus changing and green mode icon), then the camera shuts off and never gets into picture taking mode.

Taking pictures I have a pink Sanyo VPC-S770 7.1 megapixel camera. When I hit the picture button, everything goes black. The lens does not retract, but the LCD goes black, and the camera seems like it turns off. I have not dropped it or put it anywhere dangerous for the camera. I don't know how to fix the problem, but I definitely would like it fixed. I bought the camera in July, if that helps.

While taking pictures at an actress event my camera started flashing on screen that I had to format to be able to take more pictures,not knowing what that meant I hit the format button and not realizing I had just deleted all my previous pictures-- My Question:Is there any way to retrieve these pictures!


Your pictures are probably fine. The camera 'format' is for the internal memory, which is separate from the SD memory card. Take the card to Walmart and put it in the card reader and you should see your pics! ... Kodak EasyShare Z650 Digital Camera

I just received a Cannon Rebel for xmas and it was taking pictures just fine then it wouldn't autofocus and take a clear picture. I do not know if I accidentally hit a button when holding the camera but I cannot get it to take a clear pic. It also flashes a busy signal across the top of the viewing screen when it is flashing. I tried to find the fix in the guide, but nothing helped. Thanks!


Take it back and get an exchange- it's too early in the game to be getting error messages. It shouldn't be flashing busy, unless it's having trouble writing to a faulty card, or some other obscure defect. If it's too inconvenient to have it exch ... Digital Cameras

My Powershot SX10IS will no longer take pictures. I don't know why.It turns on and the picture shows in the viewer, but when the button is pressed to take the picture nothing happens. There is a movie camera icon on the bottom right of the lcd screen which I don't recall seeing before.


The movie camera icon means that you have put it into video mode. I don't know how you do or undo that on your camera, but on my Canon there is a slide sitch that selects still shots, video clips, or review pictures taken. ... Digital Cameras

My d5000 fell on the floor and the filter glass of the lens broke. i tried taking pictures to see if it's still working but the view from the viewfinder is darker than usual and it would not take pics even if i press the shutter release button. should broken filter glass prevent taking pictures or does this mean there is another damage to the camera apart from the broken filter glass?


The filter should have nothing to do with the images recorded on camera (I assume it's an UV- or skylight filter).I'd say there's some more serious damage to your camera and you should take it to an authorized dealer repair shop. ... Nikon D5000 Digital Camera
