Pictures don't fill screen on Kodak M820 Digital picture frame

I've had this frame for 7 months and everything was fine until I upgraded to Kodak's new version of software. Now none of my pictures will fill the screen. I've checked the settings and they are fine. I've upgraded the firmware too. I've emailed Kodak 3 times and they are no help.

Because a digital photo frame's display ratio doesn't always match the original picture ratio, some pictures cannot be displayed in a satisfactory manner. For example they may be rendered too small, with black borders, or they may be automatically zoomed-in and randomly cropped.

With a computer, this issue can be resolved by using generic photo editing software like Adobe Photoshop, or specialized software like DPF Manager, Digital Frame Master or FrameSize, to properly crop the pictures before transferring them to the digital frame. Without a computer, there is no other option but manually deleting incompatible pictures by using frame's built-in functions.

Also, check the settings and try the "Fit to Screen" but, with some models the width of each landscape image is stretched to achieve an aspect ratio of 16:9, which results in noticeable distortion.

I have put a micro card in a kodak easyshare unable to retrieve


Ok, look for a stick of broom or any other thing that is as tiny as a broom, insert it into the card slot and look for a way to bring the card out with it.

Or maybe you should loose the cover of the easyshare m820/m1020 so that it would be easy for you to access the internal part and it would me more easier for you to remove the card.

Take care.
