Question about Kodak DC290 Zoom Digital Camera
I've tried all the suggested fixes in the manual and on the website (new fresh batteries, re-format cards, use adapter only, etc, etc). Contacted Kodak and find their servicing has been outsourced (half way across the country!) Called the service centre and explained the E 11 error message problem. They say maybe $200 bucks (plus S+H) - IF they can fix it at all! They say it's really not worth getting it fixed based on what you can buy for that amount of money today. And they are probably right. I just feel abandoned by Kodak. My parents (who always bought Kodak cameras) gave me my brothers our first Kodak camera when we were 8 years old. I've NEVER had a problem with any model since then. After 50 years of me using their cameras I would have expected a little better service. I guess I'm just being stubborn. I paid $1,500 when this model first came out about 8 years ago I think. AND I really haven't used it that much. If anyone has any suggestions of anything I can try before it goes in the garbage can (and I buy something OTHER than a KOdak camera to replace it) I would really appreciate your help.

What a shame! I remember wanting a 290 pretty badly but couldn't afford it. You probably have already tried it without a card. If the camera doesn't work with no memory card, then it has to be the camera that is broken. Batteries okay? Worth cleaning the contacts and trying some brand new high quality Alkaline batteries just in case that is the problem. I think that camera connects to a computer and has a utility program that runs on the computer (and can be downloaded from Kodak.com). The utility program might provide more information or even be able to replace the camera's firmware. Sorry, I don't have a solution - just sympathy. Don't be too upset with Kodak. If they built their cameras to be repaired easily they would be more expensive and no one would buy them. I lost my camera due to one second of inattention when I fell out of a canoe and got it wet.
