Question about Kodak EasyShare LS443 Digital Camera
The screen is black and is taking black pictures which is confirmed when I go to review. You can see that you took a couple of pictures but all are black.
A stuck shutter is another common failure mode for digital cameras. The symptoms of a stuck or "sticky" shutter are very similar to CCD image sensor failure. The camera may take black pictures (for shutter stuck closed), or the pictures may be very bright and overexposed, especially when taken outdoors (for shutter stuck open).
To confirm a stuck shutter, put the camera in any mode other than "Auto", and turn the flash OFF (you don't want to blind yourself for the next step). Next look down the lens and take a picture. You should see a tiny flicker in the center of the lens as the shutter opens and closes. If no movement is seen, then you likely have a stuck shutter. If so, please see the following for further info and a simple fix that may help:

I have been reading a lot of posts from people with similar problems. Apparently, when people try to fix this camera, they are told that the parts are no longer carried and are told to buy or upgrade to a new camera. I am interested in hearing more experiences from people on this camera. I work for a consumer rights law firm and we are investigating this. You can contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.

here is the link to the Kodak support page for your camera; http://www.kodak.com/global/en/service/products/ekn030485.jhtml?pq-path=7546 It has user manuals, FAQs, troubleshooting etc if you select "view in browser" under manuals (the download seems to have a problem) then select "camera problems" under "troubleshooting" First see if anything there helps out (especially check the "EVF/LCD toggle button"). Next thing to try is removing any memory card if you have one inserted and see if this helps. If so then try reformatting the memory card. replace it if this doesn't help - try and borrow a card from someone to check that this makes a difference. Next try resetting the camera to all default values - this is easiest to find by looking under "reset" in the index of the manual - there is a setting in the setup menu of the camera that allows you to select this option. If that doesn't help then i would recommend contacting kodak (all details are on the link page) - they may have a solution for this problem that has not yet been added to the website Hope this helps - please ask for more info if not :)

You could try resetting your camera to the factory settings by choosing the reset to default setting in the menu. If this doesn't work the sensor on the camera is most likely broken, and you should have the camera looked at by an authorized service technician. If the camera was purchased less than a year ago the repair would most likely be covered under manufacturers’ warranty. I hope this helps!
Go Ahead. Use Us.

I also have a Kodak Easyshare and when mine did that I had dropped it and had to send back to factory for repair with no warranty on it if it had been dropped.
