Question about Kodak EasyShare One Digital Camera

1 Answer

Looks like oil in lens...

I have a Kodak Easyshare M863 8.2MP and this is the second Kodak camera that I have had that this problem has occurred with. When you turn the camera on the picture is kind of clear but the longer it stays on the color goes into like a negative setting. It looks as though there is oil in the lens or something. The more you turn it on and off the more the picture becomes disturbed. When you transfer the pictures to the computer the pictures are fine, its just when taking the pictures. But what is the point of having a digital camera if you cant see what you are taking?!? I don't think there is a setting problem even if there is you can't see the screen for long enough to fix it. Please Help Me!

Had the same problem - ordered a new lcd screen on e-bay through dhcameras. Looks as though there is a high success rate of replacing the screens according to the feedback.

I had a friend that ran into the same problem, but his solution is not what I would recommend but it did work for him. He used sewing machine oil and applied a tiny amount less than a drop to the crevice of the camera body and the outer lens housing, his was stuck in the retracted position, and he got it going again without a problem.

chrissy66 (12/10/2007)reply to this comment (by James DeRuvo - 12/12/2007)Sounds to me like your lens may have come out of alignment. Was it dropped recently? Since your camera is still under warranty, the best thing you can do is have Kodak should fix it. If your camera is out of warranty, or if Kodak refuses to repair it for free, the one thing you can try is to try resetting the camera.

Kodak is also of the opinion that lens errors also occur when you use batteries not recommended by Kodak.

I recently chatted with a kodak specialist about this issue and he recommends changing your batteries to NiMh rechargeable batteries. These are the batteries that the camera is designed to use and using other types - like alkalines, can often cause the lens error to occur. If that doesn't work, then the camera indeed does need repair.

Rechargeable Ni-MH Batteries (AA Size): These Ni-MH AA batteries last up to twice as long as alkaline batteries when used in your Digital Camera - and you can recharge them up to 1000 times in our rapid charger.

Oxy-Alkaline Digital Camera Battery (AA Size).



CRV3 Lithium Batteries: A non-rechargeable battery designed specifically for today's feature-rich cameras. This battery is the obvious choice for speed performance, and long life. It delivers faster flash recycle times and lasts up to 10% longer than our previous design!



Ni-MH Rechargeable Battery Pack: Provides exceptional capacity with its 2.5 hour fast charge cycle time; can be recharged up to 1000 times in the EasyShare Camera Dock or EasyShare Rapid Charger,

Kodak EasyShare CX7330 when swithched on, light glows for fraction of a second and turn off and then looks like as good as switched off, can anyone please help


buy a better Battery usually if there is a sign of life at all then the batteries are usually to blame unless the lens is jammed up and you are just not aware of it. the camera automatically can turn itself off if it senses there is a problem, for instance if the LCD screens ribbon is not making good connection then the camera may not power up instead it just gives a little sign of life then turns off without really doing anything.

Lens error messages


Looks like the only thing to do is send it in for service, which if it's out of warranty is not very cheap. Or you can sell it on ebay or craiglist and use the money to buy a comparable one.
Good luck,
