Question about Kodak EasyShare P850 Digital Camera

2 Answers

P850 I took a series of shots that went fine, then the next one had highly colorized black horizontal lines running through the picture. The lines showed both on the view screen and on the photograph. Weeks later, after putting it in a suitcase to take it to be fixed, it worked fine for a few shots, then the colorized horizontal black lines emerged again. I realized that if, when I held the camera for a shot, I held the left top and bottom between my fingers and squeezed hard, the picture looked fine again. Apparently applying pressure there works temporarily, but then the colorized black horizontal lines appear again. Can anyone help? Sue

This fix should only be done by a professional or one who is familiar with repairing electronic devices. I have fixed many Kodak camera's with exactly the same problem.

 

Inside the camera the lens is attached to the circuit board with a ribbon cable and it inserts into a connector that it's latch can pop open if the camera is dropped or Jared. The way to fix it is to remove the back and re snap the connector. I have fixed many this way. There are two hidden screws behind the eye piece. Press down on the eye piece after removing the screws on the bottom. Be very careful where you touch on the circuit board. In the upper right corner is where the high voltage is for the flash. That can cause a nasty shock if you touch it. Even if the battery is removed it holds a charge.

My camera has been working fine. Had it in my purse over the weekend, took it out to take pictures. When I turned it on, I have this cone shaped image in the middle of the screen that has a red line...


When you take one pic, this lines appears in the image? Some symptoms of a defective CCD (Charge Coupled Device) include distorted images or abnormal colors, scratchy purple lines, blank or black pictures, and/or black videos with good sound being recorded on the camera's flash card.



Among the CCDs used in the affected products listed above, it has been confirmed that, especially under high-temperature/high-humidity environments, the internal wiring may come undone in some places.



If this defect occurs, the signal is not output from the CCD correctly when in shooting mode, which results in symptoms like the following in captured images.

In order to correct this issue, the repair facility needs to replace the CCD. This is not something you may do on your own; check this article for additional details: Bad CCDs. This, isn't a good new, but hope helps to solve it.

Horizontal LINES


If you are getting fine horizontal lines thet means the picture is over exposing. most probably the apparture or the shutter blade mechanism is not working fine. needs repairs.

P42W46X Zenith Plasma - No Picture - Mostly Yellow on screen


Mine looks like too, but the line running across isn't on my set, picture looks like this, and the sound works fine. I took the tuner board all the way out and turned the set on and it did the same thing, then I unplugged the top wire on the board next to the tuner board and the screen went black. plugged it back in and the screen came back with the scrambled picture. Anyone know why? Bad mainboard maybe? the left of the tuner board?

Tab on the camera. E18 is a stuck lens. This is common on this camera. I'm not saying this will fix it, but don't break it.
