Question about Kodak EasyShare C533 Digital Camera

2 Answers

Black-out I've had my camera for about six months now, since February. It's worked fine, and I never had a problem, until about two weeks ago. Now, when I turn it on, all I see is black. If shaken it shows an image for about two seconds, before it goes black again. Taking pictures doesn't do anything, it's still black. Sometimes I can get an image, but it's grainy and only shows up as blue with light on the main object. It's worked fine up until now. I've changed the batteries a few times, but it didn't do anything. What's wrong?

My aperture or lens isn't opening - can't take a picture. It worked fine a couple of weeks ago and when I tried to use it this week it was a no go.

Aperture and lens are two different things. If you mean the camera is taking black pictures (something common for the S5), then see this link.

But if you mean that the lens isn't extending properly, then see this video:

My camera wont turn on

1.See what the camera manual suggests.
2. Charge the batteries fully before using them. New ones are often not charged up. They could have been in a warehouse for months.
3. The electrical contacts on your camera, the ones that interface with the batteries, may be a little corroded. If you can access them easily, try cleaning them with the eraser on the end of a pencil. Same with the batteries themselves.
4. If exposed to prolonged high humidity, electrical problems may include not only the power supply, but other electrical switches, such as the reset button., which you cannot address on your own.
5. call the manufacturer

New kodak digital camera problems

Hey hashbrownz,
What it sounds like to me is the drivers required for the camera to communicate with your computer have either been deleted or corrupted. I would try reinstalling the software that came with the camera, and I have provided a link below from the manufacturer on how to troubleshoot this problem. I hope this helps!

Mind did the same thing. Try taking out the memory card. If it works after that, you'll have to buy a new memory card.
