Question about Kodak EasyShare C533 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Lens on C533 is stuck

Yesterday, I was downloading some pics from my Kodak C533 to my computer and my dog's tail caught the USB cord attached to the camera. The cord was threaded through a handle on my desk, so the camera swung down and slammed into the side of the desk. The lens was extended and is now stuck at a slight angle. When I try to turn on the camera, the green light comes of and the screen comes on as usual... but then it immediately shuts down. Is it dead? Can it be salvaged without killing me?

Re: Lens on C533 is stuck

Fraid it is dead - The lens drive is shot. Not an economic repair I am afraid- check out Kodak of course but a new camera will be a better bet.

When turn camera on screen is black when i take a pic the pic comes out black also

A stuck shutter is another common failure mode for digital cameras. The symptoms of a stuck or "sticky" shutter are very similar to CCD image sensor failure. The camera may take black pictures (for shutter stuck closed), or the pictures may be very bright and overexposed, sometimes with lines, especially when taken outdoors (for shutter stuck open). To confirm a stuck shutter, put the camera in any mode other than "Auto", and turn the flash OFF (you don't want to blind yourself for the next step). Next look down the lens and take a picture. You should see a tiny flicker in the center of the lens as the shutter opens and closes. If no movement is seen, then you likely have a stuck shutter. If so, please see this link for further info and a simple fix that may help.
