Question about Kodak EasyShare C743 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Cracking sound My camera started making a loud cracking sound and I can also feel it right under the silver decorative line. It does it at random but frequent times. Moreso after or during taking a picture. The flash no longer comes on automatically either. I have to press the redeye button at the top every time I take a picture. What could be causing this and how do I fix it? Thanks :)

Re: Cracking sound

There is short in the flash section. This is a potentially dangerous voltage and could give you nasty jolt. Contact Customer service immediately

Sound levels on video go up and down

This is not at random, The camera wants to keep sound during the whole recording on the same level. so when it is getting quiet, the gain is automatically raised. When the sounds becomes to loud the gain is lowered. So only when the sound level while you are shooting stays the same, you won't have this issue.

Strong JPEG compression typically produces more JPEG artifacts and destroys image elements including noise; weaker compression preserves more image elements including noise created by the image sensor. It is preferable to use the lowest amount of compression possible for the best results.
