Question about Kodak EasyShare V1003 Digital Camera

1 Answer

I purchased my V1003 in the Fall of 2007. Was pleased with its performance. A few weeks ago, I inadvertently dropped it overboard. I retreived it before it sunk but it was virtually submerged. It is inoperative with the lens out. Can it be repaired and if so, who and what would it cost.

It would be better to replace the camera.

But here are some things that couldn't hurt.

1.Remove battery get some rubbing alcohol 90pcnt if possible. (not the green stuff)
2.) Batteries may be shot
3.) Soak entire camera in rubbing alcohol
to disipate the water. soak for about 10 minutes

4.) remove from alcohol then let dry for a day or 2 blow dry first to get most of alcohol dry then pack in silica gel (stuff that comes in little packets in shoes and leather jackets

HOPE For the best.. or buy a new camera

A few weeks ago, shortly after I'd taken a pic, the lens refused to retract and the camera switched off. It has never been dropped or had anything spilled on it. Strangely, when I press the button...


Sounds like a lens error. Look for sand particles around the gaps of the lens barrel (a single particle can jam it). Lens errors are fairly common. Usually it's sand or grit interfering with the lens extension mechanism. Or the camera's been dropped with the lens extended. Or the camera has been powered on, but the lens had been blocked preventing its extension. Or the battery ran down with the lens extended ... Here are some troubleshooting steps that you can try that may (or may not) correct it. They only seem to work for less than 40% of the lens errors, but if the camera is out of warranty (or repair cost approaches that of the camera), they're worth that try. Some of the later steps do involve some risk to the camera, so carefully weigh your options before deciding to conduct them:

My kodak easyshare V1003 camera will not turn on. It worked a few days ago and now it will not charge or turn on. I just bought new batteries and it still will not turn on. Any suggestions on how to fix...


1. Make sure you will install a new or fully charged battery/batteries into your camera. 2. Clean the battery contacts. a. Remove the battery/batteries and the memory card from your camera, then wipe the battery contacts with a soft, clean cloth. b. Reinstall the battery/batteries into your camera. Please make sure that you are installing a fresh/ fully charged battery c. Without the memory card, turn your camera on. 4. Please test with the a different battery If you do not have access to another battery Try these steps instead: Please take the battery out of the camera. b. Insert the charger into the unit from the main socket and turn the camera on. If the camera works you will need to replace the battery. If you camera doesn?t switch on you will need to order a No power repair or a new cable.

A new screen is availably from virtualvillage dot com for about $45. I replaced one last week. It only takes 20 minutes and a small screwdriver. The ribbon cable is held in by a flip up lock at the main board.

Hi. I have a Canon G9 camera. I bought in October 8, 2007 but did not register the camera's warranty until a few days ago. Here's the problem. I dropped the camera a weeks ago... Everything was...


Hi Cacy,
I don't want to offend you, please don't take it that way, but since your problems began with the addition of the new battery... I have to ask the question. Are you absolutely sure you bought the right battery for your camera?
It takes a NB-2LH battery pack. If your sure you purchased the correct battery for the camera, and since you dropped it, I would check to make sure it seats properly in the camara and that it locks properly. Also the cover should close with a CLICK sound. If it doesn't then perhaps the battery is not locking in properly. Double check it and let me know if you still have problems.

Shows white lines after the pic is taken with kodak v1003


Check your lens. Clean with soft cloth they sell at most camera stores. If this does not resolve. You should bring it back to the store if its only 3 months they will give you hassle but its worth if for working camera
