Question about Cameras

My daugther dropped my Kodak C190 camera and now the zoom does not go in completely and the pictures are distorted and blurry. I once heard rattling, but it has stopped. Should I just purchase a new camera?

It's most likely that your camera has a lens error, this is such a common fault that I hope you don't mind me pasting my stock generic answer below. No point in reinventing the wheel!

Stuck lenses are probably the most common reason that compact digital cameras get thrown away, but there's a fair chance of recovering use of your camera again

The fault is commonly caused by dirt or grit blocking the mechanism, or due to it having suffered a recent fall. Another common cause is that the camera was in a pocket or bag and the power button accidentally activated and tried to open the lens against resistance. The mechanism may have simply become dislodged or there may be parts which have broken.

If your camera is still under warranty and has definitely not been subject to misuse then contact the Kodak service department in your country to find out about a free repair. If the warranty has expired though a professional repair will far exceed the cost of replacing your camera. You will therefore have nothing to lose by trying to fix this yourself.

Please click here and you will be taken to an excellent article provided by the Camera Repair website. For the most part, you'll be guided on how to physically manipulate your camera to try and clear the fault. Although the article mentions Canon a few times, the advice applies equally to all cameras with lens errors and is not model-specific.

If the link doesn't work then cut and paste the following address into your browser:-

Good luck, I hope you manage to use this information to fix your camera. Please take a moment to rate the speedy and free answer I have provided for you and any testimonial which you might wish to add is always welcome!

You don't need any additional software.


The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.


Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or, despite what I said first, you can use iPhoto or any other photo cataloging program.

I want the date stamped on the picture.


The camera records the date and time (and a lot more) with every picture. If you want the date stamp to obscure a part of the image, you'll have to set that using whatever program you're using to print it.

My Kodak easyshare c190 won't turn on, it just


Are you using alkaline batteries? I had the same problem -- my camera cut out after just a few pictures and when I tested the batteries they were practically full. But alkaline batteries, even 'super-heavy-duty' ones, aren't powerful enough for this job. You need better, preferable rechargeable batteries.

My kodak C190 camera is saving to internal memory, why is it not saving to the memory card? How do I fix it?


Press the "menu" button. Then look for the set-up menu. Once there scroll down until you see "Image Storage". Once on Image Storage choose "Auto", this will allow you to save to the memory card. Hope this helps
