Question about Kodak V803 Digital Camera
I bought a V803 Camera from Kodak last year. I'm not sure if I still have a warranty or not.. What happens is, when I try to zoom in on my camera, it barely zooms, then it just shuts off. I have already sent my camera back to Kodak before because my LCD screen cracked. Am I able to send it back again, and if I can, do you think that it will cost much more then before? Please Help!
The problem will more then likely be either a worn/broken gear or the gears have accumulated a bit of dust in them.
If you send it back they should be able to do the reapir easlily enough, but price wise you will be at their mercy.
If you decide to send it back try this first..(pending the lens stays out after it shuts off)
Turn the camera on. Activate the zoom function. Grab the lens and GENTLY pull it outwards in a straight line. Do not pull it on any sort of angle. If you use force, then it will damage the gears.
This will only help if a small amount of dirt is stuck between the gears.
If the lens goes back in when it shuts down then..
face the camera towards you. As the lens moves out grip it and do as above. But at all times, do it GENTLY.
As I said, this will only help if a small amount of dirt is wedged between the teeth in the gears. If you need to apply force, then it is more serious and this will not help.
If the camera is under 12 months old then the warranty should still be good, and sending it back is the better option. However, if they find dirt in the gears, they may decide to charge you since in their eyes it is not a malfunction. They will accept it for repairs at any time, it's just when out of warranty, or through damage not covered by the warranty you will be charged.
