Question about Kodak Easyshare M753 Digital Camera
I take a picture and the picture is a black photo. Why does this happen and what can I do to get back to view what I'm taking a picture of?

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. Thanks, Abby

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 :)

I have fixed several Kodak models including this one with exactly the same problem. Sometimes tapping on the side will fix it temporally. The fix is to open the back of the camera and snap the connector from the lens. If the camer is dropped the connector can come unsnapped. You should only attempt this if you have had some experence working on electronics. Be careful inside the camera especially in the upper right corner which is where the high voltage is for the flash. You can get a large shock from this camera if your not careful.

Check to see that the automatic lens protector is opening and/or off when you experience black screen, as it should open letting light in when you power up the Kodak easyshare camera.
Good luck and Congratulations on your Daughters upcoming Wedding!

I have the exact problem. I came on slowly, some days it would work, some days it wouldnt. Finally i couldnt get it working at all. Sent it back to Kodak as it was still under warranty, the repair center claims it was "physical damage". They admit that the camera shows no evidence of falling or banging but it doesnt matter. The camera was lightly used only by my wife, she took good care of it. I'm currently fighting with Kodak, they are requesting photos from the repair center, so they claim. I think its lost cause, but we'll see.
