    I have the same problem as glpederson13's camera except I had left mine in the car and the weather was below freezing , if that makes a difference. Any help will be welcome.

    Same problem as above, although mine was stored in its case at room temperature in my home. Sounds like a factory defect.

    I have the same problem. Mine was not exposed to extreme temperatures or sunlight.

I don't think anything is wrong with your camera. Just check the Manual.
Your camera has a view finder, to make pictures. Yes the little screen on the top left (Backside) As an extra the camera has live view, that can be switched on and off. because the live view consumes lots of power, it is advised to use the view finder. If you want to switch it on, you can do so in the settings menu. There go to the live view en switch it on.

You have a button on your camera for the view finder on top of the camera so you can look through and take a picture : or you can see the picture your going to take on the screen.Push that button and it will change it back . I learned this the hard way . I also thought I broke my camera.

Black viewing screen and blank pictures


Luckyfourme,
Check to see that the automatic lens protector is opening and/or off when you experience black screen, as it should open letting light in when you power up the Kodak easyshare camera.
Good luck and Congratulations on your Daughters upcoming Wedding!
