Question about Kyocera Finecam M410R Digital Camera

1 Answer

Picture is very corrupt

My kyocera now takes photos that are streaked purple and orange and the pre photo screen shows a negative purple image. Is this an inevitable fault that digital cameras develop and is it worth repairing. I ask because these cameras are not manufactured anymore and I have found this model to be one of the best 'shoot and point' cameras I have used even though it is quite old now. It is irreplacable but is it irrepairable?

Re: Picture is very corrupt

It is a fault with a certain batch of CCD's that the manufacturers know about Depending on the age of the camera they will either replace it or make a large discount offer on a new one.

Screen turns purple and images do not come out


Unfortunately that sounds like the CCD (screen) is bad/going out. I would contact Kodak via the guided Assistant online repair tool here.

No image shows when I take picture

Usually the photo is displayed for a short period of time. Try the setup in the menu. There should be an option for previewing recent pictures.

Please take a look at the symptoms listed here, and see if it's what you're experiencing.

Sony had a certain issue with the CCD chip on this camera. If it's this issue, they'll fix it free plus $20 until March 2010.

Your camera likely needs a new CCD imaging sensor. It is a cute little thing and is very expensive to replace. I've seen deals to repair any digital camera on eBay and I would check for a local repair person in your area. You can use the search on this site to see who might be close by. I have an A310 doing the same thing.

Green & Purple blurry images

In all these cases it appears the CCD (image recording circuit) has absorbed tiny amounts of moisture. These circuits are known to have been manufactured improperly. The only solution is replacement of major circuitry.
Here's a link to some information regarding these problems.

Camera showing/taking distorted images

According to many respected sources with far more expertise than myself, the symptoms you are describing also fall within the realm of Canon CCD failure. In Canon's Service Notice: CCD Image Sensor Advisory, they outline the most common symptoms (distorted images, LCD showing only a black screen, etc.). They have conveniently limited the description to the bare minimum. More symptoms of the failing CCD include: pictures appearing on LCD show up with severe color variations (pink-purplish or green tint), colored "streaks" or "lines" throughout pictures, and wavy distortions in image. Most of these symptoms include the color variations, but not always. The lines or waves can appear in any direction and with varying degrees of severity. Some LCDs do not go black, but turn totally purple. Here is a link to a very informative article that should clear up any questions you might have.
Digital Camera Repair Blog

If nothing else, call the Canon Customer Support Center at 1-800-828-4040. They will ask questions to identify whether or not you are having the same symptoms as described in the Product Advisory. I have been through this twice, and both times they were very nice and very helpful. Even if you don't qualify for the free repair, it didn't cost a thing to find out.
I hope this has been helpful.

Streaks of red and green flashing across screen when turned on.

Well I guess you mean purchased December 2006 yes? In which case you could be in luck- return it to the seller as defective - which it is. If older- contact the maker website - this is a defective CCD There has been a recall on certain brands of camera that use the same CCD which is failing early.
