Kodak Easyshare Camera died inthe open position


Hello

Thank you for using
FixYa for your problem

Your camera is faulty. It should be taken to an authorized repair centre for a repair estimate. Very few digital cameras have any user-serviceable parts.
As it is still under guarantee, I would ask for a replacement as the unit has not worked from day 1

Please rate our solutions and if you still have problems please call back for more ideas to help you

Thanks

Please remove the memory card and try to take a picture...
If the camera works then the memory card "Write Protect" slider switch is set to "Lock" or the memory card is bad.
Please let us know what you find...

E18 appears on the camera and the lens won't close


Lens errors are fairly common. Usually it's sand or grit interfering with the lens extension mechanism. Or the camera's been dropped with the lens extended. Or the camera has been powered on, but the lens had been blocked preventing its extension. Or the battery ran down with the lens extended ...

Here's some things that you can do to try to correct it. They only seem to work for less than 50% of the lens errors, but if the camera is out of warranty, they're worth a try:

E 18 problem


I can't say I've had one fixed, but I have fixed several cameras for the E18 problem in the SD500 & for the blank pictures on the S2. I have not seen any of the S2's back for the same problem again. The SD500 E18 Error is do to the lens being jammed usually from sand or dust in the gears or from an impact when the lens was extended (I'm not saying you dropped the camera we see alot of cameras which were knocked against something when being carried by the hand strap with out the person noticing). This is not a flaw in Canon we see just as many of Nikon, Olympus, Pentax, Kodak, etc.. for the same problem, they just don't have an error code appear when it does.Normally I would recommend fixing the SD500 as they don't break again unless subjected to external problems like sand or impact.

Sony mavica CD 500 disk error


Hi Pamela

Sorry for unfortunate incident. I had similar issue before and I have found some solutions have worked.

1.Clean the lens of the built in CD writer of the camera and try again. Also wipe the surface of the CD gently with a piece of smooth clean cloth.

2.If solution 1 doesnt work, try installing the Adaptec DirectCD utility which comes with installation CD of the camera. After installation you can access the unfinalized content of the CD, and you can finalize on computer.

If issue still persist please post so we can seek further solution
Good Luck
