Having problems with your Kodak EasyShare Z612 Digital Camera ?

View finder not working

\015 I have a Kodak Easyshare Z612 and the view finder not working. When I try to change over to the viewfinder it goes black. Works okay from the square screen on back of camera. It is also making a lot of noise when zooming in and out. When shooting video and trying to self focus it will pick up this (groaning sound) into the movie. Don't know if it's suppose to or not, but when zooming in or out while filming it will blur the picture and then refocus.\015

I went to the Kodak Easy share support web page and set up to send it in for repairs. It's going to cost $145.00 to get it fixed. It's a great camera and even though I could buy a new camera for what it would cost to fix it, it wouldn't be as great a camera. So it's worth fixing it.

My SD800IS was working fine while in the very hot/humid environment of Yap. I took it out of my air conditioned room and went to take a picture almost immediately. The view finder, the LCD image and the lens were all fogged. The camera worked but took foggy images. Eventually the fog cleared and my photos were fine but most of the controls no longer work. I can change the selector knob that determines if the camera is on auto, manual, video or display modes but it won't zoom and the program


The foggy images and lens was due to condensation caused by the camera's surfaces being cold in a humid/moist environment. Usually this happens and goes away without issue. If you believe issues are continuing, consider placing the camera completely ... Canon Digital Cameras

Blank lcd I just got a new canon 600D. After playing with it for a while, i turned it off. Then after 5-10 mins i turned it on once again, and opened the lcd screen, but it shows blank(or say black). I can see that the lcd backlit is workeing, but nothing (no content) is displayed. Can this be an issue of low battery ? pressing the shutter button full also not capturing the picture. Flash works though, and optical view finder too, but it does not capture the photo.
