HI,

Most likely your flash bulb burned out or was damaged. If you feel comfortable opening your camera you can buy a flash module on the internet or ebay for around $20-$25 and install it yourself. If you do so, be VERY careful NOT TO TOUCH the capacitor as those things can store a massive amount of voltage even when the battery is removed and the camera has been off for some time.

If you don't feel comfortable opening your camera and trying to replace it yourself, my suggestion would be to get it repaired or replace it if it is still under warranty.

Goodluck..

Quit running will not turn over


run fault codes and check for cam/crank angle position sensor fault. Check that the cam shaft is turning over (broken cam belt) Check operation of the immobiliser and check that the fuel pump is still working.

Remote doesn't work


Check your remote batt first. if batt are new, check infra red light from remote using camera (selular cam etc). If infra red flashed on cam, that indicate remote is no problem. Call technician to check your tv.

Recently purchased the Sony DSC-W290 and I have


how long do you usually charged the batt? to make charge last slightly longer leave the batt inside the charger for an hour after the charger light goes off. if you have a fully charged batt you should be able to take approx. 300 pics or 2.5hrs approx.batt life. for viewing pics it should give you approx. 6800 pics and approx. 5.5 hrs. of course, number of still images and and batt life may vary depending on the camera settings.so if you're zooming in and out,using the flash,going from camera to play mode, turning cam on and off, using other settings and features of the camera, this will cause the batt to drain much faster.also ambient temperature also affects batt life.if it's very cold, the batt drains a bit faster.also, it's recommended that if you're not using the camera to remove the batt.retaining the camera settings, date & time will cause batt to drain even if your not using it. if did this and still you think it's odd that your batt drains quickly and looses charge even if it's fully charge, it might also indicate that what you might be a defective batt. one way to find out is to try using the same type of batt from a friend or a relative that has one to confirm and further isolate issue.anyway, supplied accessories has the same warranty that applies to your camera.so you may send it out and have it replaced if needed.hope this helps.thanks:)

Sometimes won't open and can't import my pictures


The lens won't open or the comp. won't read the cam?
If it is on the cam:

Make sure that you are installing a fresh/ full charge battery
Remove the battery
Clean the metal contacts on the battery using a clean cloth

Pls test with an alt. batt.
If you do not have access to a dif. battery.
Pls. take the batt out of the camera. Insert the charger into the unit from the main socket and turn the camera on. If the camera works you will need to replace the batt. If not you will need to order a No power repair.

Does the blue screen apear on the cam or the computer?
If on the cam:

Reset the cam: Take the batt out for longer than 10 sec.
Exchange the SD card.

The heating unit blows air from defroster and floor only


defrost is a default if vaccum is lost from engine.. check behind batt in engine comp to see if batt has been leaking. this can cause the acid to drip on small black vacc lines from engine and cause a leak in the vacc system causing it to only blow in defrost . you can fix by cutting damagged vaccumm line and install a small rubber hose over cut ends .. the vaccum lines run between batt and fire wall

..???lost???...


when i plug the camera to the pc, it will detect the cam as a removable storage device which makes it plug and play. if you just want to get the pictures and have them transferred. this solution works quite well

Flash does not work, have good batterys


probably there's a problem with the bulb of the flash itself and the cam would need to be serviced, contact kodak for that

you can try this too
use lithium/ni-mh> powercycle (remove batt and card)> put back batt> turn to PASM> try fill flash (at the top of the cam, use flash button), flash button at the center part of the screen should be a plain lightnightning bolt, no A beside nor line across it
take a picture
if still no flash - arrange repair with kodak
