Black blob appears on display screen and the background is white

A large black blob (sort of a leaf shape) is appearing on the display screen and the rest of the background is white. There also appears to be a crack as well. The screen itself is not crack and the lens appears to be okay. What would cause this? What is the best solution?

    I appreciate the information and the suggestion for weighing the option of repair of purchase new camera. It seems like the cameras are reasonably priced that it makes sense to do that. It is my daughters camera and she has been taking some beginning classes. Unfortunately she must have not paid attention when the instructor said to take care of your equipment!! Thank you again.

This usually means that the liquid crystal has been broken in that section. Usually caused by something poking or pressing on that section of the screen. The only solution is to have it repaired or replace the camera. I'd get an estimate from an authorized repair shop or Samsung directly, and then weigh the options against buying a new camera, buying a working used one, or paying for the repair.

No image is captured by the screen itself (LCD screen works but completely dark).


Did you try pressing the display button several times? in both viewing mode and record mode? Cycle through all display modes, s you get used to the button, so it does not trow you off when it happens again.

A blob is appearing on every frame could that be dirt on the sensor? If it is dirt on the sensor, how do I clean it?


First of all, you can't get to the sensor to clean it. Is the blob in the same place on each picture? Is your lens clean? Does the blob actually appear on prints you make?

Black holes where eyes should be


It sounds like your colour sensor is having issue deciding what colours should be what. To test this, take a picture of something else white, first try something large like a cloud or a white pillow from close up, see if it comes up black. Then try something like an egg against a different colour background, something skin toned would work best, or use yellow. If those come up white, you've got me stumped, but it is likely they will appear to be black.

Black marks on display screen


That means that your LCD panel has been damaged. The only fix is to replace the screen (which is a hard and expensive job), if you can live with it then leave it alone..

Black leaf shaped design on lcd


Check and see if the camera still takes good pictures. Verify this by downloading them to your PC. If they look ok, most likely the problem is a defective LCD display.

The V603(6Mb), V803(8Mb) & V1003(10Mb) all use the same LCD display and these cameras have a k**wn problem with the display being delicate and easy to break. This camera should always be stored in a hard shell case. There is ** protective lens over the LCD display.

Sending the camera to Kodak is a gamble. If they they say its your fault, they won't pay and then they also have your camera, backing you into a corner. With LCD displays, they may say it had been dropped or abused. You have a better chance for them fixing it if the display is **t physically cracked.

Please read my article on this camera. You'll get a better sense of how much it really costs to fix it if you wanted to try and do it yourself. I've repaired several of these. It's **t hard to do.

Please let me k**w if I can be of further assistance to you.

Good luck!

White Screen


  1. Upon startup lens emerges but when screen appears it is white whereas it normally displays whatever the lens sees. When the shutter button is pressed the camera will focus and take a white picture which can be deleted. The camera does not flash although flash is set to automatic and photo taken in a dark room. Camera flashes (weakly) with flash set to manual on. Lens is unobstructed and appears to be perfectly normal. Camera was not dropped. Batteries have been changed.
