Kodak Z1285 Horizontal Lines

I just bought a Kodak Z1285 digital camera and seem to have problems with the pictures once I try to transfer them to my computer. The pictures show up great on the camera when I view them but when I transfer them to my computer (Windows Vista OS) they have horizontal green lines appearing in them. I have used many methods to get them transfered but have the same result each time. I even tried using the photo software that came with the camera and it just gives me an error message stating that the picture cannot be transfered because it is damaged or missing. I know it can't be a problem with the cable because I have a second computer that I am running Windows XP on and they transfer fine to that computer. Is there a conflict with Windows Vista that is causing this or is there a totally different problem all together? Any help would be appreciated.

SOURCE: Lines on photos taken with Fuji FinePix E900, but not videos?

Lines displayed on your pictures during play back seem to be a common problem with some of the models of fuji that I have repaired and all that I can suggest for a reason for this is Moisture in the lens unit. The lens unit on the Fuji E900 for example has 4 shutter leaves that decrease the amount of light that hits the sensor. Like your eye when you look at strong light. And 7 or 8 other leaves below the first 4 to control the light further. These are operated by electro magnets and guided on plastic slides. So, when moisture gets in and collects over time it seems to stick the shutter leaves together and the camera no longer controls the amount of light accurately enough and you get wierd and wonderfull paterns on your pictures. So far 4 fuji E900's and 1 E550 I have found this problem with moisture and It Isn't a quick job to fix either. But it is possible if you know what you are doing.
Hope this is of some help

I've been trying to upload pictures but whenever i plug in my Kodak EASYSHARE Z1285, it won't synchronize and a screen comes up saying the device information can not be found.. how can i sync my pictures?


Try NOT connecting your camera to your computer.

The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.

Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use any photo cataloging program.

After taking one picture with my Kodak Easyshare


I've had a similar problem with my Z1285.

The problem is probably weak batteries. The Z1285 requires really good batteries. Standard alkaline batteries don't last very long, perhaps a few dozen shots, less if you are using flash.

I've had success using lithium batteries, not the rechargeable type, but the disposable lithium. Specifically, the AA4 Energizer Ultimate Lithium.

Hope this helps.

Screen goes black when taking picture and picture is not taken.


I know this might be a silly question, but did you take the lens cap off?
If all seems OK I'm afraid the camera needs a repair.

Kodak easyshare c340


Oh dear, digital cameras are really very delicate piece of item. Now, since you have dropped the camera, the shock it got from the impact has permanently distorted the Pixels Formation.

I cannot guarantee to fix this problem but you can try to restore the camera by going into the settings > restore default.
If it doesnt work then you can try to alter the images after you transfer them on the computer. lemme know if it worked.

Lines in images


Color lines in the LCD display is caused by certain type of light connections. If you get all the time when you turn on the camera then the LCD panel is bad, would need to be replaced. Black lines in printed printed pictures from your printer or the Kodak dock station printer? If that's the case, then the transfer rollers are dirty and would need to checked or replaced. Also drivers could do this also. Report the problem to Kodak Live Chat Online Tech Rep or called on the LAN line (phone).

Horizontal lines running through pictures.....Z612.


I've had sinilar problems with mine. I bought it in November of 2006 and sent it back to Kodak (under warranty) 3x before they finally agreed to replace it (with a refurbed unit). Well, that was in June of 2007 and the problem is now baaaack with the reoplacement camera (same model)... I'm requesting Kodak replace it with another model, but I'm "out of warranty" and they want me to pay them $145 to repair (which they've never been able to fix for me). So I am requesting them to replace with a different model.
