Hello, I would like my pictures to have a white background. When I take the picture on a white background the background ends up looking gray. I am taking pictures of baby clothing and I want the clothing...


Exposure meters are designed on the premise that the scene is an average, middle gray, in brightness. If you take a picture of a white dog playing in the snow, the camera will try to make the picture come out middle gray (a gray dog playing in gray snow). If you take a picture of a black cat sitting on black asphalt, the camera will try to make the picture come out middle gray (a gray cat sitting on gray ground).

If the white background is dominating the scene, the camera will reduce exposure to try to make the entire scene come out middle gray. The solution is to meter on something else. Move in close and fill the frame with the subject, press the AE-LOCK button, then move back, compose the picture, and take the shot. For full details, refer to the "Shooting with the exposure locked --- AE-LOCK" section in the manual (page 52 in my copy).

If you're taking a lot of pictures, you might want to switch to Manual mode and set the exposure accordingly.

How to set picture resolution.


Turn the camera on and set the slide on the right hand side to the red camera icon, as if you are taking photos. Turn the dial on top of the camera to the red camera icon. Press the middle circle button (menu/set), you will see that the 'picture size' menu is highlighted. Press the right arrow key to view the different resolutions available, select with the up, down and menu/set button. Press the menu/set button again to leave menu. To change resolution in intelligent auto mode, do the same thing but turn the dial to the red camera with the 'iA' in it.

I tried taking pictures and a message comes up on the screen "write protect". What is wrong?


That usually means the slide switch on the side of the card is in the locked position.

MY CAMERA SCREEN IS BLACK TAKES PICTURES STILL BUT DOES NOT SHOW TIL I DOWNLOAD PICTURES


You need to press the second button on the right hand side. There is is playback button on the top then the next button is the display (it has a grey box inside of the outlined box) and then the arrow keys. Hit the second button (or middle button how ever you wanna look at it) until you see your screen. Hope that fixed your problem

I bought mine 2 1/2 yrs ago too. Found this solution on this site and tried it. It worked perfectly.
Turn to TV mode, set the exposure to 15 seconds by pushing the little "arrow dial" until you have 15"
Push the button to take the picture.
Wait 7 seconds from when you push the button, then turn over and open the battery door while it is "taking the picture."
Close the battery door and turn back on. 
I did this three times and the last time, it worked and the iris became unstuck.
Then I took a million pictures to get the iris moving.
Good luck!

Screen is white and doesn't display area being photographed. Can take pictures.


From camerahacker.com:
1. Hold camera firmly in left hand.
2. Smartly rap front of camera with knuckles of right hand on the "Cyber-shot" logo.
Worked for me :)

Camera dropped


Probably cheaper to buy a new one, depending on how much you paid for the camera to begin with. You should try to call kodak. Go to this site for various ways to contact them: http://www.kodak.com/eknec/PageQuerier.jhtml?pq-path=687&pq-locale=en_US&_requestid=2540 . Also, if it takes good pictures you could just continue to use the eyepiece to take pictures and install the pictures after each session to see them all, assuming you have a memory card with a lot of space. I just got my mom a new one for Christmas and it was $106 with tax and it has a large screen and takes good pictures. Nothing fancy but a good camera

if the resulting images are the same, you have damaged the camera settings/controllers. see how they look on your computer.
if only the display on the camera is damaged, you should consider asking for a flat rate repair. most makers offer a price for major and minor repairs, and never charge beyond that.
good luck
