Question about Jazz DZ255 35mm Film Camera

1 Answer

One time use camera-defective

My pre-school age neice just loves to use one-time-use cameras. Surprising in the age of point and shoot digital viewing. But she seems to love it way better than digital. I've never before tried the Jazz products version but .. in light of the fact that it's flash only fired 3 times- may never again.

These cameras when taken apart actually have a AA battery inside for the flash. If the camera has been on the shelf for a long time then you may have old battery. Check the date on the camera and be sure that is at least two years past current.

How to troubleshoot problems?


I went to school, to learn how to trouble shoot electronic equipment. Took me a few years in school and after that a few years to improve my skills.
Not knowing what camera (and nobody to ask) I will try to give some hints.
The message, means the logic in the camera can't "see" the memory card. Reason? perhaps it was put in the wrong way around? perhaps it is defect.
Defects: one or more bent contacts. A bent contact pin in the camera when it is a CF card. Some dirt or oxidation in the camera, making it impossible for the camera to read the card. Just a scrap of paper, 1 mm of size can block a contact.
Only is rare occasions, the defect is in the camera itself. And then you can't solve the problem.
When you have a SD (SD, SDHC or SDXC) card, the lock switch in the lock position, should give the message card locked. When the card is not formatted the camera should give the message no format, so you don't need to look in that direction.

I am a photographer and I got this camera for when I want to take pictures of family and not having to get out my Nikon everytime and MISS a perfect shot. I got my camera in Dec of '09 LOVED it, but in Feb...


I'm surprised that you, a photographer who uses a Nikon, would buy a Kodak instead of a Nikon point and shoot. At any rate, the camera is obviously defective and you should take advantage of the warranty. Why, if it stopped in Feb. have you waited till Sept. to be concerned?

Ttl auto does not work


Digital Camera Fully Compatible, Newly Developed S-TTL System "S-TTL" enables TTL auto shooting by an external strobe for a digital SLR camera as well as for a point & shoot digital camera.
INON S-TTL auto strobe supports any manufactures' model providing highly accurate exposure control.
Film camera era without strobe selection problem TTL stands for "Through The Lens" and TTL auto strobe system controls flash amount to provide correct exposure based on calculation by camera's internal sensor metering reflecting strobe light from a subject through the lens. This TTL system meters actual light amount reflecting from a subject providing accurate exposure.
When we start with the history of underwater TTL auto strobe, underwater camera?"NIKONOS V" released in 1984 was the first to provide automatic TTL flash control for underwater strobe SB-102, SB-103 succeeded by NIKONOS V compatible underwater strobes form other manufactures. The 5 pin electrical sync connector for NIKONOS V is most popular and widely adopted to connect an underwater strobe and underwater film camera (underwater camera/housing).
A film SLR camera has flexibility to select an underwater strobe. As far as housing has NIKONOS type electrical sync connector and properly wired, automatic TTL flash control is usable with any TTL auto strobe like Nikon SB-105, INON Z-220, Z-22 connected via electrical sync cable.
NIKONOS type 5 pin electrical sync connector and NIKONOS V with INON Z-22 strobe

Film camera compatible strobe is not usable for a digital camera!? Underwater TTL strobe circumstances have been drastically altered with the spread of digital camera among divers. Some underwater housing for digital SLR camera has NIKONOS type electrical 5 pin sync connector as same as film camera housing. Since the housing has same NIKONOS type sync connector, existing film camera compatible underwater strobe has been considered compatible with a digital SLR camera via 5 pin sync cable but happened to experience error message on the digital camera or blackout on an image even the strobe worked. Why this happened?
This is because automatic TTL strobe system difference between a film camera and a digital camera.

The film TTL auto system makes single flash while digital TTL auto system employs pre-flash type making two to three flashes. Film TTL auto strobe system starts firing at the same time the shutter opens and reflecting strobe light from a subject is recived at a film. The reflecting light on the film is metered by the sensor to determine when to cease firing for correct exposure. This process takes only about 1/1000 second.
In contrast, digital TTL auto strobe system can not calculate adequate exposure based on reflecting light from a subject since image sensor (CCD/CMOS) reflectivity is comparably low comparing to a film. So digital TTL strobe system gives preliminary flash for very short period of time (pre-flash) just before the shutter opens metering reflecting light from a subject by the sensor to calculate necessary amount of light for correct exposure and starts emitting main flash at the same time the shutter opens. Canon E-TTL and Nikon i-TTL employs this system.

When we connect conventional film camera compatible TTL strobe to pre-flash type digital SLR via sync cable, the strobe makes full dump by pre-flash signal then the shutter opens before the strobe has been fully charged resulting in quite under exposed image only with ambient light. Even two time flash compatible strobe like INON Z-220 strobe, does not fully support a digital TTL and force to use Manual flash mode.





Film SLR:
A strobe starts firing at the same time the shutter opens and quenches firing when correct exposure has been obtained.
A film compatible TTL strobe connected to a pre-flash type digital SLR via electrical cable flashes does not support TTL auto exposure resulting in synchronization only with first pre-flash or totally uncontrollable.

The birth of digital fully compatible S-TTL S-TTL auto compatible INON D-2000 strobe and Z-240 strobe works in TTL auto mode by simply setting their main dial to S-TTL position. A film camera seems to depend more on photographer's skill, experience and feel since the camera does not allow checking images on site. A digital camera allows us to check images right after shooting and enable to try to shoot again as much as we like. And high capacity memory card further allows to shoot hundreds of images. The digital camera makes entry level of underwater photography getting down and nowadays more people buy a digital SLR camera and underwater housing even they have just started underwater photography. However underwater photography gets more difficult because underwater strobe does not work in TTL auto.
INON is among the first to support digital TTL auto system with "S-TTL" auto mode equipped D-2000 strobe and Z-240 strobe.
The proper name of S-TTL is "Optical Synch TTL". S-TTL enables to perform in TTL auto exposure as same as genuine TTL strobe from camera manufacture, based on camera's built-in flash light to use as a signal to be transmitted to a strobe. S-TTL uses digital camera's built-in flash light not as a light source but as like a controller to trigger S-TTL strobe.
The built-in flash of a digital camera makes weak flash (pre-flash) before main-flash to calculate exposure. This pre-flash is transmitted to S-TTL strobe to control the strobe to make pre-flash to a subject. The reflecting light from the subject goes through the camera's master lens to an image sensor then a processor calculates main flash light amount for correct exposure.?Finally the built-in flash makes main-flash which is transmitted to the S-TTL strobe to cause main-flash of the S-TTL strobe.


Digital camera's built-in flash lights are transmitted via an optical fiber to the
S-TTL strobe to make pre-flash and main-flash instead of the built-in flash.

Black-n-purple viewing screen my fuji s700 (s7000) camera


Sounds like a bad LCD as I had a similar experience with a different brand. The part itself is probably not very cheap... but if you have $120 you could get the same camera, referbished.

Streaks of red and green flashing across screen when turned on.


Well I guess you mean purchased December 2006 yes? In which case you could be in luck- return it to the seller as defective - which it is. If older- contact the maker website - this is a defective CCD There has been a recall on certain brands of camera that use the same CCD which is failing early.

Picture is very corrupt


It is a fault with a certain batch of CCD's that the manufacturers know about Depending on the age of the camera they will either replace it or make a large discount offer on a new one.

U4--what does this mean?


U1-U9: these are technician codes indicating that there is a malfunction in the zoom mechanism of your camera, most likely electronic in nature - a defective IC chip and/or bad circuit board. Repair cost would easily exceed the value of the camera. You should be aware that, just as with today's small digital cameras, both mechanics and electronics of smaller point-and-shoot 35mm cameras consist for the most part of light-duty plastic and fragile electronics. If they last a couple of years they're doing well.
