    The camera didn't work at all, but now the red light comes on under the lens and stays on. It will not even shut off when the camera is turned to the off position. The camera was never dropped that I know of either.

I had a similar situation with two of my C530's, one would only come on with the front red light (above the lens) flashing twice and then staying on solid red (regardless of the dial position). The other would turn on, but the LCD display would turn almost white and all pictures would be white.

Make sure you have good batteries, remove them from the camera, put them back in (make sure the dial is in OFF position before you insert the batteries) and with one finger put pressure on the top of the camera between the dial and viewfinder. Don't use excessive force, as not to crack the case, but put some pressure on it and as your squeezing it, turn the camera ON (Auto, Movie or View). This worked for both of my cameras, on one I have to do this one once in a while, the other I'll be taking apart to find out what's going on under the case.

KODAK doesn't sell battery doors for any of their models.

If you already have the battery door; I suggest you will have a local camera TECH to attach the door to the unit.

are you using the recommended battery the (KAA2HR or Ni-MH). If yes make sure that your charger is working fine.

now if your charger is working fined the second you need to do is to recondition the battery or purchased new KAA2HR battery it means that the chemical content on the said battery is already crystallized., this is also applies to your C530 since their using dame battery

KODAK eASYSHARE c530 BLACK SCREEN DOES NOT TAKE PICTURE


You may still be able to take pictures with your black screened Kodak camera. This problem occurs in the line of Kodak EasyShare digital camera models.

When you turn on your Kodak EasyShare digital camera, turn off the LiveView function. Take a picture using the small-windowed viewfinder (this is not the LCD screen). Also, try zooming in and out.

After taking a picture, review the picture to see if the picture has been taken. Then turn on LiveView and occasionally the LCD screen should no longer be showing a black screen.

Kodak easyshare C530


the problem is with the power - the lens being stuck out is a side effect

if there's enough/right power - the lens would retract if you shut if off. it shuts back off by itself that's why it won't retract and power is not sufficient for the lens lens to go back in

if your getting a red light, that means it's not totally dead
are you using alkalines?
the response of the cam towards an alkaline batt is very upredictable, sometimes it would take 30 pics, 10, 2, sometimes it won't even come on, just a blinking light

please use lithium batteries or ni-mh

if you are already usign a new set of lithium and it's doing the same thing, please arrange repair through www.kodak.com/go/itg
