I have an as new DCS 420Ir plus _all_ manuals plus original P/S.
No response at all now when turned on and/or P/S plugged in. To good to through away! What can I do with it? I would like to get it repaired so I can revert to taking some really excellent IR and B&W pic's. Motherboard and batteries were replaced here in Melbourne by Kodak Aust. Must be about 10 years ago! (New motherboard was not as good as original - had quite periodic alternate column differentiation visible under close examination!).
I am a scientific photographer as well as a keen amateur. FYI, original cameras (we bought 7 of them!) cost us about $17,000 _each_ as I recall!

You changed 6 coils, but you didn't change spark plugs? The new coils give strong spark to burn off resisdues from your old plugs plus what ever left inside the combustion due to bad old coils causing smoke and bad ordor. Change all new spark plugs so you can have good ignition to burn off all junks inside combustion chambers. Smokes are at the beginning, but it will go away after less than 10 minutes.
If it is not going away you may have other problemS:
Rich mixture causing engine check light come on.
Check if engine oil level.
Check if your coolant level.
Open the oil cap to see if you have milky stuff. If there is milky stuff then you have bad head gasket.
Let me know what is coming out so others can learn from your experience. Good luck.
This happened to my DCS when the Hot Wire Relay went out. It isn't an expensive part, but finding someone that knows what needs to be replaced, and then can replace it is hard. My oven also did the opposite and continued to heat without shutting off, and it was once again the hot wire relay.
Sliding the switch down to the HOME (LO) position will put the Clapper Plus into the low sensitivity mode. This is helpful if there is a lot of external noise in the room. By placing the switch in the HOME (HI) position it will put the Clapper Plus into the high sensitivity mode for quiet clappers or if you are far away from the Clapper. In the AWAY mode appliances will turn on with the detection of any sound but will only stay on for 10 minutes.
Hey all ... I just had a repairman fix my DCS cooktop that was doing the same thing ... ignitor problem. He replaced it and it's good as new. (Cleaning also did NOT work for me.) It cost me $216 for the repair. If you can find the part, it's pretty easy to replace. Just take off the front knobs (be careful as there is a 'ring' inside the neck of the knob) and unscrew the front. You will need a special screwdriver - looks like a star - but just snip the plastic straps holding the original ignitor in place and put the new one on the same way as the old one. You should be good as new. REMEMBER TO TURN OFF THE BREAKER!!! I can't imagine it would take more than an hour (tops) 'cause it looked pretty easy.
