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.

After taking 2 pictures with my Kodak easyshare M532 camera green lines start going across screen and it freezes have to take battery out to reset it


Hi there:
The only time I have seen horizontal lines in the pictures, it was a prelude to the CCD sensor failing. Sounds like a CCD sensor problem.If the CCD sensor is causing the problem, it will get worse soon.Usually the next thing to happen is that the colors will shift toward pink.

I suggest you phone Photo Local support and tell them the problem and that you suspect the CCD.Ask for a repair quote for a CCD replacement.If the product is under warranty.

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.

Thank you for using FixYa, have a nice day.
Hope helps.

Make sure the Audio Recording Mode is turned off. Go to Camera settings and look for that option under Audio settings. To properly operate the video recording, the image below can help you.

Sound like a CCD sensor problem; you will need to visit your local photo technician in order to solve it, CCD sensor need to be replaced.

CCD image sensor itselft; this is a few commun propblem the manufacturers have stated an intention to correct the problem free of charge, regardless of the current warranty status of the individual camera. For specific details on the repair process. Some of the advisories have noted that for cameras outside warranty, any camera problems unrelated to the CCD sensor issue will be treated as regular unwarrantied service, which is logical.

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.

Blank Screen


the actual sensor in the camera (it's "film") is either damaged, or the connection from the sensor to the other electronics inside the camera is broken. The fact that you can see the startup screen means the LCD display and the "brain" are good- you just have a blind camera- probably not worth fixing, which is just what the camera manufacturers want- how else would they sell new cameras.

Red/White Lines On Photos and LCD


HI,

The scren is just displaying the input from the CCD (Digital Sensor that actually takes the picture).. If The pictures were fine, but the screen was funky if you could live with it then there wouldn't be a problem.

Since it's on both the screen AND on your photos it points to there being a fault with the CCD

Given the age of the camera, the cost of a repair I'm afraid it's time for a new camera. there's nothing you can do to fix this yourself.

Sorry for being the bearer of bad tidings.

If my advice was at least helpful please vote for me!

The camera does not require a new CCD. This problem is most likely due to a stuck or malfunctioning shutter mechanism in the lens. Normally the camera will open the shutter to allow you to see the image so you can compose, and then when you take the picture it will close the shutter momentarily and record what the CCD saw at that moment. If the shutter does not open in the first place - all you see is black. If this is in fact your issue the camera will need to be repaired. David Millier Advance Camera Repair
