Question about Kodak EasyShare V803 Digital Camera
Took your advise and got an lcd replacement. Any suggestion or advise on how to get the screws to come out/dislodge from this unit? I'm using a standard (tiny) phillips head screwdriver, but they just keep turning and turning without rising from the unit.
A stuck shutter is another common failure mode for digital cameras. The symptoms of a stuck or "sticky" shutter are very similar to CCD image sensor failure. The camera may take black pictures (for shutter stuck closed), or the pictures may be very bright and overexposed, especially when taken outdoors (for shutter stuck open).
To confirm a stuck shutter, put the camera in any mode other than "Auto", and turn the flash OFF (you don't want to blind yourself for the next step). Next look down the lens and take a picture. You should see a tiny flicker in the center of the lens as the shutter opens and closes. If no movement is seen, then you likely have a stuck shutter. If so, please see the following for further info and a simple fix that may help:

SOURCE: Kodak v803 wont turn on
i had the same problem, if you try to turn the lens in as if you turning a dile, the lens will go back in manually once you have the lens completly in again, as if the camera is switched off, then turn the camera back on at the power button and the camera will operate as normal, this worked for me i hope it works for you too.

I did some checking and you can't repair that yourself. I found this on the net for you:

Could be a slight misalignment of the ribbon connector- I'd try to reseat it first. Otherwise, you'd have to try it in another known, good camera to know for sure. Not sure if a camera shop could test it, you might call one as a last resort. Good luck!
