  • wherbie Jun 24, 2008

    thanks....I knew that , I was trying to avoid the $ 125 dollars Kodak charges to fix a re-occuring problem which is inherant in the series of camera....ie the wire used is too small of gage to pass the flash current.....not something you would expect from a $ 300 camera...AND...design flaws should be covered under a time less warrenty....

You can take it to any camera store or Best Buy and see it they can replace it. Check with Kodak and see if they cover it on a warranty.

    I bet its a design flaw. I know theres another camera made by someone else the the flash bulb pops and they cover it. You would think Kodak would do that same thing.

Flash does not work


I would say that either the bulb inside the flash has bit the dust and in such you would have to either get it fixed or buy a new camera, or that command and dial is not working on your camera because it is jammed.

Replacing the flashtube is not something you can do. It requires complete disassembly of the camera and delicate soldering skills. It must be sent to an authorized Kodak repair facility. It will cost a lot.

You would be better off selling the camera for parts, and buying a new one... sorry to say but that is the best solution... You can get a brand-new on for under $75...

Kodak C713 dose not turn on back.


Fixing your problem could be as simple as cleaning the battery contacts in the camera, or the solution could be a lot more complex and expensive. Here's a link to the Kodak Help Center - it provides a simple Q&A format to diagnose the problem and propose a solution.

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

Flash: PCB Replacement v. New Bulb!?


I had the same issue. The flash is set to go off, the camera assumes it went off, (as the record metadata shows) but it doen't go off at all, and the piture is underexposed.

I bought the 100 page repair manual, which is ONLY a dissassemble/reassemble manual with NO diagnostics. (Got it on ebay) So I was atleast able to get to the capacitor and flash bulb. I saw 300V across the capacitor leads, and the same 300Volts across the flash bulb leads. SO I am assuming that there is a transistor or relay that drops to ground to fire the flash that isn't working, or the electronic signal to drive that isn't working.

It seems most people replace the entire flash circuit board(which is near the capacitor under the left hand side). But it seems Nikon only sells parts to it certified repair facilities.

Ugh.... Looks like I'm buying a SB-600, as this is the cheepest solution. Too bad, because the on-board flash is more than decent. I hope the SB-600 thrills me enough to change my mood. :)
