I turn on my camera that has full battery but it doesnt turn on


Sounds like sand in the lens cavity. Use a fully charged battery, then lie the camera flat face down on the floor, ideally a carpet. With the camera OFF, lens face down with the carpet, switch the camera on. It will take a number of go's to release the **** stuck in it.
Mine took atleast 15 go's. Better than chucking the camera out, and saved atleast 80 dollars and a trip to Germany!

LCD display is blank


Has the camera been dropped? If the camera appears to work properly and you can download the pictures to a PC ok, then it sounds like your LCD display has failed.

I have replaced several of these screens on Kodak cameras. If the camera is under warranty, you may be able to get it repaired free of charge, provided there is no evidence of abuse.

You can order the screen directly from the parts department of the manufacture and attempt to replace it yourself but I would only suggest doing that if you feel confident in doing so.

I wrote an article on how to replace a damged LCD screen.

Please let me know if I can be of further assistance to you.

Good luck!

Blurry display after dropping


I did the same thing to my Photosmart E327 and upon inspection, I found that the len had fallen out. I could not find it so I am trying to find how to get it replaced. The blurry picture began for me after the drop. Suggest that you check to see if your len has become dislodged, or fallen out as mine did.
