Thats very bad... you chould change the batteries or buy a new memory.
You know what i found out? When you take the memory of of your cmera it can still take videos and remember hem, so try that too.

Pictures are extremely blurry, like smeared. Also now lens won't close when off


If the pictures are smeared, then your CCD is bad and needs to be replaced. The "E:18" error message is a generic message meaning your lens is defective... so it sounds like you need the lens completely replaced.

I would look for a defective camera online and make a good camera out of the two. If you would like to have your A75 repaired, I don't have current pricing for a lens assembly but I can get it for you.

Good luck from Darntoothysam com, and let us know if we can help.

Decode error! JPEG datastream contains no image.

Kodak has software that should be able to make sure those pictures are in JPEG format. Id use that at first instead of a third party program. Picture It! does some funny things to pictures and Microsoft discontinued that product line several years ago.

Here is a link to download it

There is a firmware upgrade too on this page. You should install that into your camera as well.

I had the same problem just this morning...but I fixed it!

If you have manipulated any of the files on your opening them on your computer and modifying them...then the camera won't decode them. This is because the dimensions change and exceed the dimensions of the camera. Try returning your pictures in your camera file to their original state and saving it to the camera. Don't forget to delete the ones that don't work. This should work.
