Question about Kodak EasyShare LS443 Digital Camera
Camera appears to be working correctly but when the button the take the pictures is partly depressed, a red light flashes indicating you cannot take a picture. If you fully depress the button to take the picture anyway, the flash goes off but no image is recorded. Only a black screen is visible on the camera and on the computer if this "picture" is downloaded. Shutter is fully open. Batteries have just been replaced. Memory card and internal memory have both been formatted. I have been through the entire menu onscreen and everything appears to be in order. Camera was used one day and worked great, next day this problem occurred.
It seems that shutter blades are stucked and are not working. when you say shutter is fully open i think you are talking about the lense cover, not the internal shutter assembly. the red light is the indication of OUT OF FOCUS SUBJECT OR FLASH NOT READY. if the shutter blades aare not open the camera would not be able to do the focusing and will flash the red light thus you would not get any image. contact the repairer.
