Question about Kodak EasyShare DX6440 Digital Camera
The camera LCD screen is black. Can see some faint image on it. Can still take picture as usual. How do you make the LCD screen bright like normal ? Thank you for your suggestion
As I suspected, the flexible circuit board which connects the fluorescent back light to the power source was severed. Although it didn't appear broken at first, the LCD came on as I poked the flex board. I removed a small amount of insulation and reconnected the two copper leads. Problem solved.
The flex board I speak of is an amber colored ribbon; it can withstand high temperatures and is quite durable. There are two copper leads embedded in the ribbon. One end of the ribbon is sealed within the LCD, the other end terminates in a locking surface mount connector. You can unlock the connector by pulling back on the little brown latch. If you have a severed flex board, be extremely careful in repairing the connection. Once you begin removing the amber coating, it becomes fragile.

I had this problem when turning the camera to take vertical shots. Turns out my polarized sunglasses obscured the image when shooting vertical. Solution: take off my sunglasses.
