I have a kodak easyshare C875 camera. the flash has stopped working. how can i tell what the problem is (ie, did it get dropped and the flash is broken). Is there a way to reset the camera? We bought two for our office and within the first month the same thing happened to one of them, is it possible this is a defect?

Re: Flash not working
It is possible a defect or that it has been dropped.
Switch to flash and put to your ear -can you hear the capacitor charging up - [a feint whistle]?
If it does not function return to vendor as defective.

Replacing the flashtube is not something you can do. It requires complete disassembly of the camera and delicate soldering skills. It must be sent to an authorized Kodak repair facility. It will cost a lot.
Try to do this press the flash button then chose the Fill Flash so if you take picture it will always fire the flash., May be your using the Auto Flash. If your flash will not fire using the Fill Flash setup it means the Flash is defective call tech support toll free 1 800 235 6325 ext 12
You may also see the flash setting if you press the menu button and under menu button look for setup
when i dropped my dx7630, a tiny plastic part broke that worked the
holdback spring for the battery. Kodak has a repair service, or a
referral service for repairs, but you have to send the camera in. i
sent it in. they emailed me to say it was not a repairable part and
didn't even ask if i wanted it back. luckily, i kept the memory chip.
my C875 was $100 cheaper and had 1M more pixels. good luck with your
natural light photography from now on. i think Kodak just figures you buy a new camera whenever anything goes wrong.
