There is a small battery (or large capacitor) inside your camera that stores a charge for when the flash fires. If you dropped your camera and hit the right spot, this battery may have been bumped out of position. A solution would be to open up your camera to see, but this is obviously risky and can void a warranty if you still have one. If you do choose to look inside, be sure to not tear any gentle wiring as this can ruin your camera for good (I know because it's happened to me).

I had plugged my computer in the other day, turned it on and it worked fine. I put in a flash drive to copy somethings to it. Put the flash drive in, finished with what i was doing powered down and...


I guess you tried restarting the computer a couple times. You didn't accidently send the "C" drive to the flash drive? Have you tried putting the flash drive back in (if it hasn't been changed) and tried booting?

DC280 Kodak Camera- Everything is working fine


Take the batteries out of the camera and let it sit for around an hour. Turn your dial to "set up", then put the batteries back in and turn the camera on, it should ask you to reset the date and time on the LCD. If it doesn't, your camera is essentially dead. Buy a new Panasonic FZ35 if you can afford it. Best All Around Camera I have ever had including the more expensive SLRs.

Kodak DX3900 camera can't get power from battery


Remove the batteries and clean the battery contacts inside the camera with a soft cloth (a heavy buildup on the contacts may require cleaning with a fine wire brush, steel wool, or sandpaper). Remove any residue that the cleaning leaves in the camera, and then reinstall the batteries. This clears most power-on problems, but if yours persists, check the Kodak troubleshooting guide at:

Review isn't working


Hi,
This is not a problem. This is a function that shows you the "burn" area at the photo. If you wishes to drop it just rotate the command dial at rear of the camera. You can change the option by changing the menu as shown at page 75 in the manual.

Dropped the camara,it turns on & everything works EXEPT capture button


Unfortunately, as you have found, the cost to repair these cameras is usually not viable, as it is cheaper to replace the camera.

Even if it is repaired, often the impact from being dropped can cause small fractures in boards or loosen the optics and while they may work ok now, can continually develop faults later.

My advice would be to replace the camera, as you will also get a new warranty as well.

i think the firmware is corrupted ..... you must install new firmware ....
just visit the nearby showroom or technician he will install the new firmware ..........
for installing firmware it may costs some 300 to 400 bugs ....
how ever there may be other problems too may be the battery is dead just change battery and check....
check whether it is detecting in pc or not..........
