Question about Kodak EasyShare Z612 Digital Camera
If the display is black in all function modes then your LCD screen is likely dead. If you can still use the display as a viewfinder and/or to review pictures, chances are that your lens is stuck in the closed position. There is no safe DIY fix for either condition -- the camera will require professional repair. But, before you panic or spend any money on repairs, your problem may be due to weak/worn out batteries or corrosion on the battery contacts inside the camera which can prevent the full power of the batteries from flowing into the camera. Try this free fix before you do anything else: remove the batteries and wipe the camera contacts firmly with a dry cloth (heavy corrosion may require cleaning with a wire brush, steel wool, or sandpaper). Remove any residue that may have fallen into the battery compartment during cleaning, then wipe both ends of the batteries and place them back in the camera. This cleaning clears the problem about 90% of the time. If it doesn't work for you, your batteries may need to be replaced, or the camera may have a problem that requires professional repair.
