Question about Kodak EasyShare M853 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Ruined Screen My friend's screen is ruined. When it's off you can see some damage or something on the screen. When I turn it on I get this. Also the lens doesn't "grow" out like it should when you turn it on. It hasn't been dropped in water, nor has it fallen to the ground and broke that way. Does anyone know if this can be fixed. I also don't know if this cam is under warranty.

    My camera has a black spot, which you can see when the camera is off, and then a white screen with lines all over it which you can see when the camera is on in addition to the black spot.

    This is actually the second camera i got of this type (Kodak MD853). The original i got Christmas 2007. After a few days I had the same problem as I have now with the new one (black spot, white, lined screen). So i went out and got the one i currently have now. It was ok for over a year and now its busted.

    I too, didn't drop my camera or get it wet.

Kodak has a web site where you can enter the serial number and check warranty status, if it is less than a year old and has been registered it is possible it will be covered. This is just a guess on my part.

My keyboard isn't working on my aspire one laptop because i spilled something on it

It is probably ruined especially if you tried to turn it on before it was completely dry. Let it dry for several days and try again. If it doesn't give the post screen and you cannot get to the BIOS, then it is history I'm afraid.
There could be a lot of unrepairable damage not only to the motherboard but the disk drive. Sorry for your problem.

My laptop started to slide off my bed...I grabbed it before it hit the floor. I grabbed ahold the screen. Now where my thumb pressed on the screen is red and black and there are several red and hot pink...

You have probably damaged the LCD display by compressing it. It may improve over time but it is unlikely that it will go back to normal. You can try gently massaging the screen and see how it affects the issue, this is a method to repair dead pixels.
Hope this helps,

Memory loss

Quick, check every menu on the game. This is what happened to a friend who had Mario Kart. "Deleat data" was accadently selected when that person was trying to edit something. The data was lost. Check all menus. The wrong thing could have been selected. If you cannot find a way to deleat data, then make sure you never turned off the DS, DS light, DSi, or whatever when saving. If it was turned off when saving, then the following can happen: Nothing, Data Erase, or data destruction. Data destruction means the cartridge is ruined. That didn't happen to you, though. I am sorry, but you must start over.
