Having problems with your Kodak EASYSHARE Z1485 IS Digital Camera ?

What can be a problem when my LCD doesnt turn on and the pictures it takes are all black


Answers :

Hi,
If camera shows previously stored images in memory card in playback mode but does not show live view in camera mode that means ccd imager chip got defective in your digital camera and ccd imager needs to be replaced by local camera repair shop because it requires soldering work and expertise.
Let me know if you have additional question.
Thanks.

Display problem Hello, I've had my SD1000 for less than 3 months. Sometimes the display goes black, I can still access the menu options and if I slide the button to review images they will display on the LCD panel. But even if I've just powered it on, the LCD is black, if I take a picture anyway, the picture is also black. Sometimes if I turn on the camera and turn it off again a few times it starts displaying correctly again. Is there a hardware problem with my camera or is this something I sho

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

Hi, ... Kodak EasyShare M863 Digital Camera

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.

Hi, I have a camera, a Sanyo VPC-T1060 and it's having some problems. It turns on, flashes, takes photos apparently, but the LCD screen won't work. It turns white when I turn it on and when I take a photo with flash black lines appear all in the photo. I've tried finding a reset button, but nothing has been found. As I said, it takes photos, but I need the LCD screen to take a photo so I can see if I messed up and should take more. I'm a photographer and I got this camera as a side kick to my DS

It sounds like the connection to the LCD has been interrupted. If the camera still has warranty, it should be fixable. If the warranty has lapsed, it won't be cost effective to get it fixed, given the price of the camera. ... GE A730 Digital Camera
