SOURCE: Tricks to opening Kodak C513

Hi,
Affraid that offer was for the DX6490, Ive never had a C513 (plenty of C3xx and C6xx though) on the bench. But, most of the C series are fairly straight forward.
This is generic C series info, yours will differ, there may be speakers in the way mic wires etc so proceed with caution and keep a lookout

read all of this before starting

first you need to take static precautions, using a metal strapped watch or something metal around your wrist connect yourself to earth, a good place is your computer case (it dose'nt need to be on, just plugged in), loosen a screw and wrap a piece of wire round it then the other around your wrist.

undo all the screws in the camera (the 6490 is the only one Ive found so far with hidden screws so shouldn't be a problem there).
The front and rear casings should now un clip and leave you with the chassis if the front case wont come away, look for a screw down a hole, often behind the LCD (on other kodaks not usually c series).
Keep an eye on the bars and springs retaining the battery and memory card door they tend to spring off and get lost, also note how they are positioned

IMPORTANT SAFETY NOTE, Before starting leave the camera a couple of days with no batteries in (or follow the discharging instructions). Once open locate the flash capacitor (big black tube with 2 wires) and take a voltage reading, if its still high (50v or higher) put it down and come back to it tomorrow or using INSULATED clips connect a 20k ohm 1 watt resistor across it for a while that will pull it down.
If your in too much of a rush that cap will bite and hard, 350v (10,000v if you touch the transformer) when the flash is freshly charged and if it bites its likely to fry the camera too, as well as that your guaranteed to drop it.

Ok so now the camera is safe to work on, if you haven't already remove the LCD, then remove all the screws retaining the main board. Most C series cameras have several ribbon cables and the battery posts are soldered through the main board, you need to un-clip all the cables and de-solder the battery connections, also loosen the switch board (on top) as there is usually a connector hidden that will just pull apart but it needs a bit of movement.

Now the ccd (image sensor) some are on a ribbon cable (but you will be able to see that) some are mounted on the back of the board. some will come away ok with the board others have a pair of extra screws through holes in the board, if the board is being reluctant (but be carefull) at the lens end have a closer look for screws through holes in the board near the lens. Pull the board away carefully as the IR filter will either stick to the ccd and may drop off or it will stay in the hole in the back of the lens, there should be a little square rubber gadget, again don't loose it and for goodness sake don't touch the class filter or the ccd a fingerprint will ditch it.
if the ccd is on the main board put the board in a clean plastic bag and put a little piece of tape over the hole in the back of the lens, especially if the filter is still in there as you may need it later and you want to keep it clean

If it is the ribbon cable type, you should now have the board off and be able to get to the 2 or 3 screws that hold the main lens assembly in place, remove them and carefully jiggle the lens free, keep an eye out for the ribbon cables their very easy to damage.

fit the new lens assembly and screw it in place.
get a clear plastic (to prevent dust contaminating the lens and sensor) bag big enough to get the camera and your hands in and put the camera chassis and the old lens in it, (if ccd is on a ribon) unscrew the screws holding the ccd in place and swap them over
remembering that there should be a rubber gasket on the ccd then the infra red filter in the hole the ccd goes in

You can skip the ccd swap if you like but I cant guarantee that the colour and contrast will be the same as it was, Ive not had a problem when swapping them but strictly the camera should be calibrated for the new ccd and you wont have the equipment or software to do that. I always keep the same ccd with its main board where possible.

now its a reverse operation to put it back together, don't forget to re-solder the battery contacts.

Best of luck

According to Kodak, the rubber eyepiece is not available for purchase, you have to send it to them to get it fixed...I would try to take it to a local camera repair shop and let them do it.

For solving your problem it is necessary to remove your Easyshare Software completely from your system. Afterwards you need to install the latest version of Easyshare Software. Please follow the steps below: Remove Easyshare Software Click on 'Start' -> 'Settings' -> 'Control Panel' -> 'Software' Please choose 'Kodak Easyshare Software' Please choose 'remove' Please click on 'next' when installation wizard shows up Please choose 'remove' and click on 'next' Please click on 'next' to start the removal of your Easyshare Software. Please make sure that all files of your Easyshare Software has been removed from your system successfully. For remaining the progress please go to step 2. Even if you couldn’t remove the software or it is still in the list. For running Kodak Clear Utility: Please go to www.kodak.com/go/clear and follow instructions given on screen. Click on 'download'-button below on screen. Please choose 'open' and follow instructions given on screen. Please choose option 'save as' after choosing the download option to run clear utility from your PC. Please choose a save path. Open file clear5N.exe after file has been saved. Click on green starting arrow. The programme is running now. Please note! Please click on 'Ok' should messages appear for which you only have 'Ok' as an option that will make sure that you still run the programme. Should you been asked to restart your computer, please choose 'NO'. You receive the following message when the programme has finished: 'Easyshare files have been removed. Please reinstall Easyshare after system reboots'. Your computer will be restarted now. This action removes Easyshare Software from your system but it won’t delete any pictures or videos. But there is the possibility that you have to recreate your collection after reinstalling the Software. We recommend to download always the latest version of Kodak Easyshare Software.

If you have files that you do not want to lose, you could try this... Pull the hard drive out, and use a "USB Hard Drive Adapter" (available fairly cheap online) to connect the hard drive to a friend's computer, and save all the personal files (documents, pictures, etc.) you can to a folder on the friend's computer or an external hard drive.
Then, you could try to do a Factory Restore on the computer, and if that works, copy your personal files back to your newly restored computer.
Good luck.

How to reset a password on Windows


So you've forgotten your password and can no longer log in to your computer? Never fear, there's a solution! There's a relatively simple procedure for resetting it. I'll walk you through the process step by step.

The first step is to download and burn something called the System Rescue CD. The ISO file can be found here: http://www.sysresccd.org/Download You can use any image burning software such as Nero, imgburn or Windows Image Burner to burn the image onto a disk, then put the disk in the CD drive, and boot to the drive by hitting a key during bootup. The key differs based on the make/model of the computer and the bios version, usually you'll see "Press f5 for setup" or something like that, you're looking for the boot menu.

Once you boot to the cd, you'll see a whole bunch of text flying across the screen, this is normal. Just wait until you see this screen:
6_16_2011_3_09_44_pm.png
The first thing you need to do is "mount" your harddrive. This means you're telling the rescue CD that this is the drive you will be using. It also ties your drive to a specific file. I won't go into the details of linux file structure, but the command to do so is this (without the quotes) "ntfs-3g /dev/sda1 /mnt/windows -o force" This means you're mounting an NTFS file system (windows file system), located at sda1 (first partition on the first harddrive) at the location /mnt/windows (a file on the system). Don't worry too much about the details of it, it's not necessary for this tutorial.

The password file is located in the System32\config directory in Windows, so use this command to change to that directory: "cd /mnt/windows/WINDOWS/system32/config" Now if you type "ls" you should see something similar to the following. You're looking for a file just called SAM.

There's a command in the system rescue cd called chntpw, this is the command you'll use. Type "chntpw -l SAM" to see all the users to decide which one you need to change the password for. When you find the user you want, type "chntpw -u <username> SAM".The best way I've found to change the password is to type "2" (change password), at which point it will ask you to type in the password. After you do so, it will take you through a few prompts (type "y" to change the file). After you get back to your prompt, type "chntpw -u <username> SAM" again to open up your change password wizard again, and this time hit "4" to unlock the user. Then just quit out, and reboot by typing "shutdown -r now". It should prompt you to take the disk out. After that just restart and you should be good!

If you need more help, I took a video of myself doing the procedure that you can watch. You can see it right here too! Note that I had a few problems during the procedure, and I was running it on a virtual machine just as an example so the change password didn't actually work, but the commands will still be the same, and the procedure will be the same. Also note, when I get the "blank password - no space" error, I do a few other things to try to get around it. Just follow my instructions (ignore my 1 and 2 typing) and you'll be fine.
