Question about Kodak EasyShare M1033 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Cam keeps shutting off, no picture turns off immed.

Think it was dropped or got sand or dirt in it. First the pictures wouldn't show up when you tried to look at them. them later on it would work. then it was working fine at the beach, i set it face down (stupid) on a log and i think i got sand in the lens part that pops out when you turn the camera on because i tried turning it on again, the lens would come out but no picture and then immed. the camera would shut off. now when i turn it on, the lens comes out, the pictures shows up then it blacks out with the lens still out. seems like the camera is dead now, esp. since i tried to charge the battery but it wouldn't work. i have a year long warranty, any suggestions??? much appreciated!!

Water Damage Lens Error


Most cameras with retractable lenses are very sensitive to grit (sand, dirt, salt etc.) in the lens mechanics and will shut themselves off if everything is not perfect. It's possible some salty water remained in the works and left a salty residue when it dried out.
Unfortunately, most repair shops will charge you almost what the camera is worth to properly clean it and it is not a job for the do-it-yourselfer.

Toshiba camileo H10 camcorder. No picture. Screen shows Zoom 1 fail E AF PI fail /.


Hello Charles,

Just to be sure it is NOT a software issue, remove the battery then replace it back after about 5 minutes and then try turning it ON again.

The error you are getting is a "zoom error". A problem connected with your camcorder's optical zoom not working, it is either it has broken parts or something is caught in the zoom mechanism.

If something serious happened to it, like if it was dropped accidentally or a force was applied to it, then it is probably broken parts inside and needs servicing. Otherwise, it could be just dirt or sand stuck inside the mechanism.

To try and resolve the problem with dirt/sand you can:

Hold the camcorder with the lens facing the ground, then tap the side of your camcorder repeatedly.

OR

Use a canned air and spray it into the lens area of your camcorder.

On my sony A200 camara .. I have a grinding noise when turning camara on and off from lens and sometimes when last bit of auto focus pictures are still good


it sounds like you have some sort of dirt or sand in the lens mechanism. this also could be a symptom if the camera was recently dropped.

if you can, try getting some condensed air and spray what you can in the cracks. if you aren't comfortable doing that, you can take it to a camera shop and have it cleaned.

the same thing happened to my camera and eventually, the lens wouldn't come retract, thus rendering the camera useless.

hope that helps.

I have a FujiFilm S5000 and since 2 weeks the sensor seems not to be able to adjust when trying to take a picture in sunny condition. The screen shows white and pink colour with horizontal lines. I turn...


Actually it's not the sensor it's the LCD screen. I would say in the last two weeks the camera didn't change but the environment it is being used in has and is causing the camera to overheat.

Keeping the camera within these perimeters should solve your problem.

My camera is having problems turning on and off.


Hey Mimi_M,
I know you said you didn't damage the camera and it hasn't gotten wet or been exposed to sand or dirt, but the most common cause of these symptoms are that something is obstructing the movement of the lens such as sand or the lens mechanism is damaged. I would try blowing compressed air into the side of the lens in the hopes to dislodge anything that might be stuck in the lens. If this doesn't work I would have the camera looked at by an authorized repair technician such as bringing it to a Geek Squad® precinct in a Best Buy™ store and they can send it out to be seen by a technician. I hope this helps!

Sincerely,
Allan

Dropped fe- 230 camera in sand..spazzing out..help ASAP please


Borrow a friends camera or buy another.
The motorized lens assembly is contaminated, and
your only recourse is to replace the entire assembly.
It has very close tolerances and even replacing it is no guarantee that all the sand particles could be cleaned out of the camera body.
Sorry. No easy fix this time.
