Question about Kodak EasyShare C743 Digital Camera

1 Answer

The back screen on my kodak C743 is malfunctioning

The back screen hasn't worked for a few weeks. The camera turns on, but the screen looks like it is broken on the inside - no picture, just a white screen and some streaks of black like it's cracked - but not on the outside.

    I have the same problem with my Kodak Easy Share C743 Camera. The camera turns on and it all seems fine, but the screen looks like a negative and has lines all through it. I don't understand how mine can be broken, I did not drop it or abuse it in any way. I always keep it in my case and take it out to take pictures and then return it to my case. How can it be broken?
    I think Kodak should replace the screen for free.

You are correct. The LCD screen is broken. This is super common with the C743. It is unprotected and unlike most LCD's, there is no hard plastic or glass screen over the LCD. My wife broke my son's 1st 743 when she left it in her bag. My son broke the second one by packing it in his duffle bag for a summer camp trip.

You can spend about $40 for a replacement that will probably break again, move on to another camera or use this as a "green mode only" point and shoot camera just like the old days where you don't know what you got until you get home. You can still hook it up to your TV set to change the settings and review your pics, but that's all you are left with.

Turn on the camera, the start screen shows up and slowly turns to black. I don't see a thing. I tried to take a picture and check it using card reader, I saw picture I took was very clear on my co


Hello, On the C743 this will require that the LCD unit be replaced. This will get very costly real quick unless you can do it yourself. Not much more I can tell you.

I was told by a Kodak tech that the cameras are identical. The different numbers were a marketing thing.

Judging by my experiences with Kodak service, you would be better off getting another camera that put up with the headache and expense of a repair... better still, get a real camera from a proper manufacturer with a real service center!
