Hello, When taking photos in low light or night time,turn the rotary dial that you use to turn on the camera all the way to the right as far as it will turn.the symbol looks like torso of person with a star above it. this is the night setting,exposure time is increased so you may have to rest camera on solid object to prevent blur.This should do the trick.
Best Regards,Russell

SOURCE: Kodak C613 flash wont work.

Make sure that the "Take Picture" button (the big one, on the top) has the ring around it, it looks like a circle with bunch of pictures on it. Move the flap so that it is parallel with the ON/OFF button. It should work now.

Drop it agin, in the trash can. It is not worth getting repaired, you would be better off getting a new camera...

My Canon EOS rebel t3i's flash isn't working properly. It will flash, wait a second, then take the picture, making it come out very dark or completely black since the flash happens so early and I'm at


The multiple flashes are the camera attempting to autofocus on a subject that is too dark - it is trying to compensate for underexposure. Are you taking photos outside at night? Another thing to check is your lens. It is possible you have a poor connection between your lens and the camera which may be interfering with the focus and exposure (aperture) setting by the camera. Take and alcohol pad and wipe the contacts on both the lens and the camera body and dry them thoroughly with a lint free cloth. I have seen the oils from finger prints cause problems with contacts like this, so make sure they are clean and if you are in doubt, clean them twice. You should try to pop the flash open and not use the simple exposure settings on the mode wheel. If you are using the "easy" mode - stop. Use the portrait or night exposure setting. The other possibility is the processor in the camera is bad. If you have eliminated all the possible things then the camera is the culprit. I hope you have a warranty if that is the case.

Flash wont work


Use the flash when you take pictures at night, indoors, or outdoors in heavy shadows. You can chose what flash mode, by pressing several times on the little button on top of the camera where the lightening logo is. One of the settings is flash off. Make sure it is not in that mode, because even when it is dark the flash won't fire. The other modes are flash, fill in flash and red eye reduction flash.

The front lense of my Kodak DX 6490 camera is broken. Where can I get new lense please suggest.


The ideal place is to get the part from Kodak as it will be easier. So log on to the kodak support site and request.
If not you must try for getting one from a scrapped set , try the nearest repair store.

Flash is intermittent or doesn't flash at all. I have tried different settings and flash modes with the same results. Low light pictures that are un-usable.


First of all, be advised that flashes are designed to light people just a few meters away, so that their faces are visible at night or when there's backlighting (very bright/sunny background and dark faces). It will not, for instance, have any effect on a landscape photo taken at night.
Please check if your camera has a manual flash mode. If so, you can set it up so that the flash will fire every time. Check the user's manual for the proper procedure.

Taking a picture, everything that is white is pink and dark pics


Oops, it looks like you have a couple of annoying problems with your Kodak camera.

Is your camera still in warranty by where you bought it (30 days) or the manufacturer (1 year)?

Dark pictures with zoom and in low light


Your best bet is to increase the ISO setting to at least 800. Don't use flash unless you're within 10 feet. My idea if a new camera would be a DSLR. Expensive, has a learning curve, but the results would be spectacular.
