Tape mechanism problems are quite complicated but they can usually be repaired fairly inexpensively. However, it’s not a user serviceable problem and will need to be diagnosed by a qualified service technician.

My name is Rick and I’m a professional repair technician with over 20 years in the business and have repaired many of these. I’m semi retired and work from home with little overhead so I can keep repair costs low. If you decide to have the camera repaired, please click HERE for a directory listing that suits your needs.

Hi!

You get this message because moisture got into the camera. Simply keep it for few hours in a warm and dry place (even under direct sun beams, but in this case please COVER the lens).
The moisture will slowly get out from the camera and it will work again.

Such condensation (moisture) can get into the camera when moving from cold to warm environment, exactly like people wearing glasses know it happens when they come inside a warm room from the cold outside in winter.

Good luck, and please let me know if it worked.

How do I replace battery compartment door on my C330 Easyshare Kodak camera?


Assuming that you can get a replacement door, you still need some precision screwdrivers and a really clean environment in which to perform the repair. A dusty environment can cause dust to settle on the sensor, ruining any future images you might capture.

Beter to refer to a service centre, assuming it's cost effective to repair the item.

The foggy images and lens was due to condensation caused by the camera's surfaces being cold in a humid/moist environment. Usually this happens and goes away without issue. If you believe issues are continuing, consider placing the camera completely in a bowl of uncooked rice. The rice should help eliminate the moisture in the camera.
Hope this helps.

most modern f/f work in the temperature range +10C to 35C,so if you store it in a room below or above these temps you will incounter problems.before you buy you should check the temp range as in some countries they supply them to operate outside these parameters.i use a greenhouse heater in an outhouse to keep mine warmer than +5C,seems to work okay.

Fuji FinePix A210 contacts are messing up the picture card


Have you been in a high humidity environment? Did you use the camera in cold weather and then brought it in to a warm room so moisture condensed inside? If the problem keeps recurring, I suspect mold in the camera. If so, repair could be expensive.

DVD player wont work


Firstly check the region code matches with the dvd code.
Check your manual in the front will be a list of dvd`s the dvd can`t play.has the disc been finalised.

One thing could be ,has the dvd recorder been into a cold environment, or not been used for the first time.
Take the dvd recorder into a warm room connect to the mails and leave for 2 hours , if that was the problem it should work.

Dust , for this open the dvd tray and blow to remove dust in that area of the dvd recorder.

LAPTOP DVD DRIVE WONT PLAY DVDS ANYMORE


Drive is on its way. Typical behaviour. Try air dusting lens but unlikely to fix it. Very easy diy repair and cheap. EBay the new disc drive or refurbished. Then go to youtube. Nearly all laptop drives are the same to replace no matTerry brand. You could even get a faster drive.

DVD must be overheating


General failure when units warm / hot in high humidity environments. Units operate normally once cold, failure only occurs occasionally then seems OK but when warm fails again
Many PCB's/components have contamination which will manifest themselves in warm and humid environments, so once unit is warm then electrical failure occurs. Clean circuit first in solvent/water combination and retest unit. Failure should dissapear. If corrosion found on joints then reheat with soldering iron which you may see joints bubble then clean PCB thoroughly. Best to soak in cleaner then wipe around with lint free wipe especially around powered components. NOTE contamination is typically hygroscopic and will attract moisture if particularly bad will electromigrate if not too bad then poor SIR Surface Insulation Resistance (occasional unexplained failure) Could go on for long time but this is only the start! Does this sound familiar to anybody ??

What precautions should be taken when using the camera in a cold enviroment?


In cold environments (winter outdoor, highlands), battery performance decreases extremely. We recommend keeping spare batteries in a warm place, such as the inside of a coat. (Batteries can recover their power when they warm up.) When taking the camera from a cold to a warm environment, place it in a sealed plastic bag to prevent condensation from forming. Allow the camera to come to room temperature before removing it from the bag.
