Question about Kodak EasyShare M853 Digital Camera

Open Question

I have a Kodak m853 screen is white with lines through it

I've had my camera only for 5 months, one other issue was resolved a couple of months ago. Right after I got it to work again, I charged it and the when I turn it on the screen is completely white with black lines and pattern on it kind of like broken glass. I take very good care of my camera and I keep it in the case when I'm not using it, I never dropped it or got it near water in fact I keep it put up on a shelf. II bought it at Best buy and they said it would be 49 to send it off to them just to look at it. I've contacted Kodak tech support and did everythin they told me to do and they were not of help, I am not sure what to do, I can't afford to buy a new one right now I'm having surgery in 3 weeks. Is there any advice you can give me on how to fix it and get it working.

SOURCE: Kodak DX6440 won't power up using batteries

There's a chance that the drop is irrelevant to your problem. You could try using a small eraser to clean the battery contacts down in the chamber (make sure to dump out any eraser particles) and try a new CRV-3 battery, which because of it's slightly longer body produces a little more pressure on the contacts. If that doesn't work to improve things then your cam might need a repair, your call there. Good luck

I am having the same problem and it stated around the same time. May 10th. I bought mine at Target on Black Friday and love the camera. I tried online support but waited for over a hour and could wait any longer. :(

I had the same problem 2 months ago, I went to use my camera and the len wouldin't retract or open, it was stuck that way. I contacted Best Buy and Kodak both and all I was advised to get it fixed, $49.00 just to send it off the Best Buy, my camera was on 150.00 so by the time they spent on labor I'd have to pay way more than it is worth probely.. I was also given tech support what to do still nothing worked at all. I was resigned to have to buy another one after weeks of trying to fix it. Well one day I figured if its already messed up, try one more time what more damage could be done. I turned it off and on again and carefuly moved the lens around myself to see if I could unlog the shutter. Low and behold it worked! I never had to send it in and saved me alot of money. I would suggest doing the same see if it works.

Incidently, my camera worked fine after that for all of 2 weeks, I went to charge it and when I tried to use it............another issue my screen is white with a black pattern and lines on the screen and hasin't worked since. I've never dropped it, put it near water and keep it in it's case when I'm not using it. It's unrelated to the other issue but, guess I'm not suppose to have this camera.

Good luck on you issue hope my suggestion helps.

Lines in images

Color lines in the LCD display is caused by certain type of light connections. If you get all the time when you turn on the camera then the LCD panel is bad, would need to be replaced. Black lines in printed printed pictures from your printer or the Kodak dock station printer? If that's the case, then the transfer rollers are dirty and would need to checked or replaced. Also drivers could do this also. Report the problem to Kodak Live Chat Online Tech Rep or called on the LAN line (phone).

it is possible you may have drained the battery completely.if you have a radioshack nearby take it in to them and have them run a continuity test on your camera, it could be a short as well.

is the light that's coming on green or red?
if it's red, there's a charging error - contact kodak, they may provide a 5v ac adapter to resolve your charging issue

if it's green, was it blinking or solid? is the battery drained?
if the battery still has a little charge on it, please connect it to the computer then turn it on, check if there's power light
check if the screen is black - that means it's making a connection and the charging is the only issue - computer not detecting it, maybe resolved by kodak's software support

if the camera screen is active - that means there's definitely something wrong with the camera

arrange repairs with kodak, include the battery and usb cable
please visit - troubleshooting and repair
