Question about Kodak EasyShare LS443 Digital Camera
I was carrying my Kodak EasyShare LS443 in my pocket and it accidentally got switched "on" and the lens attempted to telescope "out" while in my pocket. Ever since that happened, it won't telescope out any more when I turn it on. It just makes a clicking sound for a few seconds, and then turns off. I spoke with a repairman and he said that is fairly common with that camera and that a gear is either broken or has jumped a cog, and that it would cost about $175 to repair. Is there a way I can access that gear to attempt to fix it myself? It's certainly not worth paying that much to repair it. Thanks for any advice you can provide. Tosty
Hi, Tosty I have had this problem for what seems like a couple of years now. I simply turn the camera on, pull the lens out with my fingernail a little, and then grab the OUTER telescoping ring and turn it gently counterclockwise until it locks into position. When you turn the camera off, turn the Outer ring gently CLOCKWISE and help it retract and turn off. I have been operating like this for quite a while. Now I have the dreaded "Black Screen" problem. If I'm reading the postings correctly, I think the internal shutter is locked closed and I need to take the camera apart (keeping track of all the tiny screws!!) and attempt to unlock the shutter. Good luck!
