Re: The still picture has no coulour and is full of white...

Mine did the same.  It was the CCD, which is under a recall program.  Go to and give them a call and they will fix it for free (even free shipping!)

My kodak easyshare C143 lost the sound when I make video.. Can you help me?

Your camera hasn't lost anything. It's a very basic and cheap model which is primarily a digital stills camera. Although it can record video, it does not have the hardware to record audio.

You get what you pay for and so having a very rudimentary video recording function keeps the price down and makes sure that the primary camera function is still satisfactory.

Your fix, if you want sound with your video, is to either get a dedicated video camera or to get a more advanced digital stills camera with full video and audio capability.

I dont have any sound on my videos my camera is a vivitar vivicam 7025

It's a super-basic, super-cheap digital stills camera only which has a very basic video recording function, and as such it records just video and not audio.

Your only fix is to use a different camera which records video with sound.

I've recently purchased an FX38 to replace my previous Lumix (FX 28 I think). On the previous model I regularly used the audio dub function to record information about pictures, but can't find this...

hey sue
my best guess would be to play around with the menu's and/or look for a 'record' button, much like a button used to take pictures or capture video footage.

My video recording function works fine, but when on camera mode , the pictures turn out white or with a bunch of lines through them. I've tried changing all adjustments as far as color , etc. Still same...

The issue here is with the CCD sensor inside witch gave out on you, what you might want to do is have a shop replace it due to the delicate eletronics inside would be your best bet.

please do leave feedback and ratings for your free answer

My pict from s500 show white lines, but that is nothing problem when use to recorder/cam record & candleligt fiture.

Unfortunately the shutter motor is broken, so normal pictures will be over-exposed. If you use it as a recorder or candlelight function the shutter mechanism doesn't need to work because the shutter is always open.
Fix that problem is very difficult, unless you get a new lens block.
Hope this helps,

  2. On the camera, move the FOCUS AUTO/MANUAL switch to AUTO .
