Re: no more flash

When i dropped my dx7630, a tiny plastic part broke that worked the holdback spring for the battery. Kodak has a repair service, or a referral service for repairs, but you have to send the camera in. i sent it in. they emailed me to say it was not a repairable part and didn't even ask if i wanted it back. luckily, i kept the memory chip. my C875 was $100 cheaper and had 1M more pixels. good luck with your natural light photography from now on. i think Kodak just figures you buy a new camera whenever anything goes wrong.

When taking pics with my kodak c913 the lcd screen is black and you can not see what you are taing pic of. It all works. When taking a pic the flash will even work. when reviewing the pics it is still...

If you can check previous pics and menu settings there, isn't a problem with the LCD screenviewer; sound like a problem with the CCD Image Sensor problem.

Check the link and keep us updated.

When we try to review it come up "read Error" and dose not let us. also the flash stays on force flash, also wont shut off and freezes up . this all started last night we bought it a month ago...

Sorry, I do not see any firmware updates that apply to your flash situation, but I do see one that seems to apply to your picture review situation:
Please read the firmware update instructions and follow them carefully. Errors during firmware updates can ruin your camera:

My camera doesnt take pics @ night Maybe flash

First make sure that the camera has fresh batteries. Then see that the flash setting is either 'on' or 'auto' or any graphic mode like a lightning bolt.
If this doesn't help, the flash might be damaged. Any camera shop can check this quickly.

OMG!!! If you still have the camera, try this. I read in one of these forums to spray a burst of brake cleaner in there and blow dry for a few seconds and believe it or not, it worked! That's after me taking it apart to make sure the connectors weren't loose, using the pencil eraser and banging it. I am not making this up. It was my last resort and it worked. Good luck!

Photos on camera review but not memory card

before unplugging any usb device from the computer... it is best to safely remove before unplugging the device...

i used to just unplug before i lost over 200 pics. was able to recover using recovery software but the whole process took about 3 hours to do. since using safe remove.. not a single loss

some pros suggest formatting the card on regular basis to also clean the card of file fragments... but once card is formatted, the pics are not recoverable... be careful

Flash is'nt working on my Moultrir Camra

There is not going to be an easy fix for this problem. An electronic component is going to have to be replaced. It is easy for a camera flash to burn itself out from dew or moisture condensation inside the camera. All it takes is one drop of water in the right spot when the camera flash is fired, and the 300v tidal wave from the flash capacitor crashes into the sensitive 5v microchips(only 20v is needed to damage them.) I would sell it "as-is" or "broken" online somewhere to try to recover some money.

Hey liz2007,
Some scene modes don't allow the flash to be used such as landscape, sports, sunset, dusk/dawn, night landscape, museum, fireworks, and copy modes. If anti-shake mode is selected the flash will not fire, and if the camera is set to continuous shooting mode the flash will not fire. I hope this helps!

Hello.. I have a canon g6 problem...please help : O

What happens if you restart it and then plug it in?

DSC-W100 "Shaky Hand" icon and taking infrequent pictures

You restarted it by turning it off and on again?

Try re-initializing your camera. Menu --> Setup 1 --> Initialize "OK"

I hope that helps.

As for switching back to camera mode, that could be your selector switch. Mine is weird to, it takes pics fine but the selector switch is touchy and thinks i'm turning it when I'm not. It does this most often in Auto mode, probably because I use it most. You might try putting it in another mode before reviewing pics.
