Question about Kodak EasyShare P880 Digital Camera
I have kodak p880, and now, I have noticed that it while taking pictures the screen goes black.When I press the button to take picture, it comes back.
It now frequently goes black while it is turn on.
I have tried numerous avenues including email solutions from Kodak and possibility of reinstalling the firmware but none worked. I fully believe the problem lies in the power switch - it is no longer making proper contact when in the on position. The only way appeared to be to have it repaired by a camera repair depot preferably one that also happens to be authorized by Kodak. The repair cost estimate given to me was $70 Canadian. Unfortunately I reported the problem after the warranty period had expired and like most corporations today, Kodak absolutely refused to foot any of the bill once the warranty period is over. I have no good reasons to keep Kodak on my list when shopping for another camera. P880 was a great camera except for the unexpected switching off and Kodak has not made a replacement camera with the same degree of sophistication.

I also have a P880 that has started shutting off on its own. Here's the fix that worked for me (well, not really a fix, but a workaround, and at least it points to the possible cause): as soon as the camera turns on, go into the menu and turn the autofocus off. As soon as I did this, the camera worked fine. I'm not happy about having to manually focus all the time, but I can at least get it to work, and if I end up taking it in for repair, this at least is a good starting point for the repair person.

I own an EasyShare 880 and it was turning off after turning it on. I too thought it was the on/off switch because it would stay on when the switch was rotated to the right, just not when I turned it the opposite direction to take photos. After reading postings on this site, I cleaned the battery and now it is working fine.

I've heard a lot of times it's cheaper to get a new camera but it wouldn't hurt to take it in and get an estimate on it.
