Hi.

The curtain getting stuck is often caused by dust, or sometimes by factory defect.

The repair is not too difficult, but it still involves taking part of the lens assembly apart. This will invalidate the one year factory warranty.

Since the camera is under warranty, I suggest to take battery out, replace them with fresh and tested batteries, and testing again. This is one of the few maintenance procedures that will not nullify the warranty.

If that does not work, call Kodak and ask them how to validate the warranty to have the camera repaired. Kodak number is written on the owners manual or available here:KODAK: Contact Kodak

My Kodak Easyshare M580 works but the shutter will not go in all the way when turned off? Starts to go in then stops.


The problem is in the shutter itself, I would use it until it go's completely, it would cost as much if not more to have it repaired, chances are they would replace the whole lens housing.

My sons kodak easyshare cx6230 only takes black/blank images. Screen works, but all photos taken are black. Suggestions please?


A stuck shutter is another common failure mode for digital cameras. The symptoms of a stuck or "sticky" shutter are very similar to CCD image sensor failure. The camera may take black pictures (for shutter stuck closed), or the pictures may be very bright and overexposed, sometimes with lines, especially when taken outdoors (for shutter stuck open). To confirm a stuck shutter, put the camera in any mode other than "Auto", and turn the flash OFF (you don't want to blind yourself for the next step). Next look down the lens and take a picture. You should see a tiny flicker in the center of the lens as the shutter opens and closes. If no movement is seen, then you likely have a stuck shutter. If so, please see this link for further info and a simple fix that may help.

When turning on, shutter opens then closes.


Most possible that the control board inthe camera is faulty and the shutter closing off after opening is the errors in the servo of the camera.
It will be necessary to obtain the control board from Kodak and should be estimated.

When I turn the camera on, the lens won't open. I can review pics I have taken, but cannot take new ones.


its a problem with your lens cover shutter on the upper face of the lens. Get it repaired in some Kodak service center.

Screen and view finder not showing anything


Just covering the bases...
Make sure the lens cap is removed
Turn the ON/OFF switch to Favorite mode
Press EVF/LCD does it toggle
Look to see if the battery level ICON shows better then half
Battery combination sometimes will show a strong icon level
It may be strong in the other modes which draws less power then the picture taking mode.
My guess would be New Battery replacement.
Some tests were done that may be of value to your solution

Kodak easy share digital camera m863


I have a Easy Share M863 and have had it less than a year. It was working great and then last week I tried turning it on and it would not open. I thought it might be the battery needed charging so I did that. It still will not open. I contacted Kodak and they told me they would give me 15% on a new digital camera. That is not what I wanted. My camera is not even a year old. It should have lasted longer I think.
