Question about Kodak EASYSHARE Z1485 IS Digital Camera

1 Answer

I got my camera around January 2008 but I haven't gotten to use it for around a year and a half. This is the first time I can try to fix it due to costs and other problems. I think the camera is having CCD problems because I can't take pictures without them being black but I can see previous pictures just fine. I've heard that repairs for this sort of thing are expensive especially once the camera is out of warranty- with luck, mine happens to be out of warranty. How can I fix this? And if I were to send it in, how much would it cost to repair?

Once a camera is two years old it is almost certainly going to be more economic to replace it (with a better spec) than to pay for a repair. It is human nature to resist throwing away something that cost so much, but it is less expensive to let go and move on.

My car started just fine this morning. I was sitting in the parking lot for about a half hour and tried to start it again and it wouldn't start. The AAA man said it was the battery but my light did


A "light" never comes on to tell you your battery is dying. If you have the original GNB battery from DaimlerChrysler, you\'re WAY past due for replacement. 2008 Avengers, especially the 2.4L PZEV engined models are NOTORIOUS for being hard on batteries, especially if all you do is putt around town, due to both the onboard alarm system and the positive EGR pump, which runs right after you shut the car off every time, putting about a 30 amp load on your bettery without the alternator charging. Frequency battery maintenance and equalization charging is essential in the case. Also, Chrysler started using those horrid stainless steel "post straps" back in the \'90s, and those damned things will cause oxidation of the lead on the posts, due to dissimilar metals. Either way, service your battery, or replace. You\'re obviously from the south somewhere; it\'s SIT, not "set".

The lens will not retract or once it does will not open



I have had that problem unfortunately the method to fix this issue is not guaranteed but has been effective. First get a wash cloth or anything similar and fold it in half and then fold into a square. Second cover the side of your camera with the cloth that holds the battery. Third depending on how thick the cloth is tap the battery end of the camera on a hard surface a couple times then reboot your camera

Everything seems to function well, actually, I've never used this camera. Got if off of ebay, so maybe I was gypped. Anyways, the film advance lever seems to be stuck. It only goes half way. I can put...


If the lever won't advance even when there is no film in the camera, then I would say there is a problem. (p.s. You haven't told us the make and model)

It is likely that the flex cable that attaches your screen to the main camera is bad.
Try flipping the screen against the side of the camera and see if that makes it work, if not then a repair is probably needed.

This is due to a problem with the gears in the gauges; there was a manufacturing defect that ford fixed in later years. The cheapest solution is to replace these gauges. I found a local mechanic that knew how to fix it, and did the job for $30 a gauge. I recommend checking craigslist for a local person, because this is a very common problem. I haven't heard of a correlation to cold weather, but perhaps it it because your gears are defected only slightly.

My camera is on - batteries charged.....I have not changes any setting BUT the shutter won't go...will not take pictures...... I have had this camera for almost 4 years and never had this problem.....


just guessing - It sounds like some sort of mechanical trouble - dust or sand got in the tine spaces around the shutter or the lens cylinders? Try using a compressed air can available from computer or camera shops. Perhaps gentle wiggle those parts with a tool?
It could also be due to humidity or rust affecting the electric contacts of the batteries? Scratch the contacts with a screwdriver.
Try to pry any reachable springs in the battery well - over time it may have gotten too compressed?
Try new batteries?

My camera won't turn on even though it has new batteries


If the usuals won't help (new NiMH bats, cleaning corrosion from the bat contacts, trying with another good memory card, checking for bent pins in the card compartment, reseting the thing either by a prescribed manner or by taking the batteries out for an hour), then it's time to get it fixed. 6 months after purchase you should have a valid warranty, don't you? Sounds like something either in the picture processing or the lens assembly is shutting down the camera. It's not something you could fix by yourself. Even if you could find a way to fix it or get around it I would try to use the warranty if it's valid, otherwise it could come back or deteriorate. And if you do send the camera to Nikon, and get it back fixed, I suggest that you put it to heavy use straight away, take a picture of EVERYTHING for the next month, just so that if the problem is planning on repeating, that it would happen within the warranty, and not a day after it expires. Good luck
