Question about Kodak P20 Flash

1 Answer

Schematic Our Kodak P20 flash was dropped. the bottom plate popped off and the soldered wires snapped off. It does not appear to be broken. If I knew where each of the five wires were to be soldered, I think I could do that, snap the plate back in and be good to go. Wiring diagram anyone?

Try using a mag. glass or your lens(look from the rear to objects) from your slr on those broken wires' end and try to match up the broken leads.

You can do it. Good luck.

A red light flashing with clean filter

bad connection on plates or wires that run along the front of the plates in the cell. If you hear snapping or arcing then its the plates shorting out, look for bent plates and broken wires or loose sagging wires.

Kodak no longer repair... Buy a Kodak P20 flash (or similar) to go on the hotshoe, and set the flash to external only in the camera menu... works a treat!

Kodak p20 flash zoom foot came off and wires were pulled free

Find out who makes the flash. Its most likely
Sunpak, Metz or Sigma.
Check out their wesites. Use "contact us" to email them. If no response, write them a letter and mail it with two dollars to cover postage, and someone's time for doing it.

The flash has quit working

My flash does not open fully either. I have to hold it open with my finger to take flash pix. I am gonna get a rubber band to hold it open but would like a repair for long term. Kodak will do it for 150 plus s&h

Kodak easyshare c875 flash not working

I have the C875 - and had the same problem. It was out of warranty so I took it apart and found that the flex print wiring between the flash electronics and the flash unit was bad. It has 4 wire runs and at least one of them was broken. I cut the flex out and soldered in 4 fine insulated wires in its place. The flash works fine now. The hardest chore is taking the camera apart.

Warning: Wear rubber gloves since high voltage is stored in the flash capacitor even with the batteries out. I got zapped several times.

1) Remove all screws on the left side, right side, and bottom (including 2 inside the SD card door). Remove any SD card.
2) Remove the lanyard attachment fitting and then front and back covers.
3) Remove screws holding the metal center band in place. I recall there's a hidden one that's a long reach inside to remove.
4) Bend the band down to clear the tripod mounting hole and slide it off toward the front. Watch out for the fine speaker wires which will tether the band to the camera. I broke one and had to resolder it during reassembly.
5) You will see the orange colored flex leading to the flash. Snap out the flash.
6) At this point you could check the continuity of each wire to confirm the problem.
7) Cut/strip 4 wires to match the lengths of the runs. Use very fine insulated wires - 30AWG or so. Thicker wire might not fit.
8) Note the wire routing. Cut out and desolder the old flex print.
9) Solder in the new wires
10) Snap the flash back in place and dress the wires like the old flex print.
11 Reassemble. You can test it once you put the metal band back in place.

Ther C875 is a great pocket camera. One very much worth fixing.

2 Choices:

1.Pay Kodak $150 to fix it, as long as they don't find any other problems.

2. Drop kick it into the trash can and go buy another brand. They knew this problem exhisted and also knew everyone's camera would be out of warranty by the time it popped up.
