Question about Kodak EasyShare C643 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Kodak C643 black LCD

I can view stored pictures but I can't take new ones because the screen is black and the pctures come out black. I called Kodak and they want $90 + tax & shipping to fix it or give me 15% off something else. After reading so many people experiencing the same problems I think they have it fixed so that when you warranty expires this piece burns out.

It is likely the Iris is stuck closed , maybe due to humidity.or the actuator that opens it is kaput.
it will have to be totally dissembled to get to the iris.
if you look into the lens and see the iris leafs you can verify that they stay closed.

Camera turns on you can view pictures stored but screen is black you can also view menu but screen black, cannot take a picture

Please also try to upload new firmware: I doubt that it will solve the issue, but the alternative is a repair.
Connect the camera with the computer.
Turn the camera on.
Click onto the link and follow the instructions.

If no luck the camera is in a need of a repair.
If your camera is Out of Warranty the repair of this model for this fault is about 48 pounds + shipping. KODAK also offers a Trade up option where you will have the opportunity to trade up to a newer model 25-30% cheaper than the market price.

Black viewing screen and blank pictures

Check to see that the automatic lens protector is opening and/or off when you experience black screen, as it should open letting light in when you power up the Kodak easyshare camera.
