You need to dissasemble the camera first. There is no way to check it otherwise. Also please be carefull near the main flash capacitor.
Even with the battery removed it still stores some 250 volts.
With the camera dissasembled, you should look for 2 ribbon like cables near the lens assembly (they are on the same side with the main board). The larger one is the CCD-Main board connection. The other one is a bit smaller and it is the lens mechanism controll connection. Check to see if both of them are firmly connected and eventually try to reconnect them. 
I haven't see your reason for suspecting that connection. Please give more details about your problem.

Hi Karen:
a CCD problem would explain the lines on your pictures and the lines on the LCD (since the CCD is used to feed the live image). CCD (Charge Coupled Device) is one of the two main types of image sensors used in digital cameras.

Some symptoms of a defective CCD include distorted images or abnormal colors, scratchy purple lines, blank or black pictures, and/or black videos with good sound being recorded on the camera's flash card.

When a picture is taken, the CCD is struck by light coming through the camera's lens. Each of the thousands or millions of tiny pixels that make up the CCD convert this light into electrons. The number of electrons, usually described as the pixel's accumulated charge, is measured, then converted to a digital value. This last step occurs outside the CCD, in a camera component called an analog-to-digital converter.

In order to correct this issue, the repair facility needs to replace the CCD. This is not something you may do on your own; check this article for additional details: Bad CCDs. This, isn't a good new, but hope helps to solve it.

Hope this helps; also keep in mind that your feedback is important and I`ll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.

I have a Kodak EasyShare C813, I have had it for about 3 years now. The photos it takes are coming out mainly white, with what you have taken a photo of barely visible. It looks like the white balance or...


It's probably a loose connection between CCD and main board. It's a well know problem with these cameras or youre CCD is go to bad, if this is your cases, sorry but these are classic symptoms of a failed CCD imaging chip, and it's effectively irreparable.

Don't throw your digital camera away if it has a bad CCD and it is covered under this recall, get it repaired for free! The best part about having the manufacturer repair your camera under this recall is that they will inspect, test, calibrate and update the camera as well as replacing the CCD with an updated version that will not fail as the first one did.

Hope helps.
