My C743 Easy Share has a faint LCD screen. You can see what is on it but it is faint. I messed with the settings at a basketball game an took pictures that were very dark when reviewed but the screen showed everything was ok. When i got home the screen was dark. Is there an LCD setting I messed up and how do I reset the whole camera (in a step by step description). Kodack says it is broke and needs to be sent in for repairs. HELP!
I`ve heard about this, but in the other 2 situations the cameras were dropped on water, the problem is that the, lcd connector is not making the proper contact with the main electreonic board, maybe your camera was dropped or something hit it, you just have to open it, and check the lcd connector and adjust it.

Hi, It is problem of lcd screen that will be replaced to get correct picture view. Local camera repair shop will replace it or if you have expertise then can replace lcd screen by yourself. Let me know if you need part number of lcd screen for DSC-S930 camera. Thanks.
I shows your screen is not properly touching the contacts i think those contacts need to be cleaned with acetone available at maplin or pcb cleaner from philips the assemble again it solves prob coz that contact isnt giving signal to turn light off.
You are correct. The LCD screen is broken. This is super common with the C743. It is unprotected and unlike most LCD's, there is no hard plastic or glass screen over the LCD. My wife broke my son's 1st 743 when she left it in her bag. My son broke the second one by packing it in his duffle bag for a summer camp trip.
You can spend about $40 for a replacement that will probably break again, move on to another camera or use this as a "green mode only" point and shoot camera just like the old days where you don't know what you got until you get home. You can still hook it up to your TV set to change the settings and review your pics, but that's all you are left with.
If you intend on paying someone to replace your lcd screen the repair will most likely cost more than the value of the camera, but you could have an estimate done at an authorized service center.
Be absolutely certain the batteries are installed correctly. The Kodak C743 battery compartment is poorly marked so that if you don't look at the underside of the flip-out door and see the positive and negative imprints (very faint) you may be installing the batteries upside down. This happened to me as I hadn't used my camera in a long time and replaced the batteries for the first time. Finally, I tried the batteries 'upside down' and it turned on right away.
