DC280 Kodak Camera- Everything is working fine

DC280 Kodak Camera- Everything is working fine (batteries, flash, lights, flash, etc.) except the LCD screen doesn't show an image and won't capture a picture. I downloaded what I had taken, like a test, and it's all black. Is this the lens? Anything I can do about it?

Take the batteries out of the camera and let it sit for around an hour. Turn your dial to "set up", then put the batteries back in and turn the camera on, it should ask you to reset the date and time on the LCD. If it doesn't, your camera is essentially dead. Buy a new Panasonic FZ35 if you can afford it. Best All Around Camera I have ever had including the more expensive SLRs.

Hi,

you're not completely right. Kodak printer docks normally only charge the Kodak KAA2HR battery pack. It not charges normal Ni-MH rechargeable batteries of any brands.

My kodak easy share M380 digital camera froze as I was turning it


This problem is frequently due to corroded battery terminals inside the camera. Remove the batteries and wipe the terminals with a soft cloth (heavy corrosion may require a fine wire brush, steel wool, or sandpaper). Remove any residue left in the camera by the cleaning. Clean the terminals on the batteries in the same manner, and then replace them in the camera. This cures most problems, but if it doesn't work for you, check the Kodak troubleshooting guide at:

It uses a simple Q&A format to diagnose problems and propose solutions.

Kodak DX3900 camera can't get power from battery


Remove the batteries and clean the battery contacts inside the camera with a soft cloth (a heavy buildup on the contacts may require cleaning with a fine wire brush, steel wool, or sandpaper). Remove any residue that the cleaning leaves in the camera, and then reinstall the batteries. This clears most power-on problems, but if yours persists, check the Kodak troubleshooting guide at:

Cannot download my Kodak DC280 software.


It's not compatible with Windows XP and will cause you nothing but problems. Let windows automatically detect your camera with it's own software.

No Flash function on Kodak Easyshare Z612


To both, I'm afraid you need to send the out camera for repair.

Camera flashes use a capacitor that holds the electric energy for the flash. It takes some time to charge and discharges very rapidly to generate the light pulse. Capacitors are notorious in their reliability. They tend to disconnect and die or short circuit and die.

In camera1234's case it might just died disconnected.

In sheranne case it might died short circuiting. In this case the camera should not be used since the battery might explode.
