Question about Kodak EasyShare LS443 Digital Camera

Removing KES from auto-start

When I loaded this application, it automatically put an icon in the System Tray, thus auto loading it each time I start my PC. When my PC starts acting sluggish, I manually close the KES cause it's usually the culprit. How do I get the program to not auto launch upon every logon?

Re: Removing KES from auto-start

I also use KES. Check your start up folder. You can safely remove it from there. It could have been worse, Kodak could have started it thru the registry!!! Good Luck.

I cant load my pictures in my computer


If images cannot be imported automatically into the Windows PC, check [Precautions] below.



[Precautions]

- Temporarily terminate resident software such as antivirus software.

- Connect the AC adapter or load a fully charged battery into the digital camera.

- If RealPlayer 10 is installed, select "Tools" - "Preferences" and then disable "Automatic Services."



XXXen the digital camera is connected to the PC, if the FinePixViewer starts up and images in the digital camera are displayed, skip Steps 1 to 5 and start with Step 6.



1. Start up the PC and then connect the digital camera and PC using a USB cable.



2. The "USB MODE" setting of the digital camera may be set to "PC CAM."

Set "USB MODE" to "Card Reader" or "DSC."

*Only in the case of the digital cameras that have the "USB MODE" setting in the SETUP menu



3. Check whether or not any mark indicating the USB connection (USB, CARD READER, USB symbol with an arrow mark, etc.) is displayed on the LCD monitor of the digital camera.

If not, the digital camera and the PC are not connected properly. Check the following points.



a. Restart the PC, disconnect and connect the USB cable and then try again.

b. If the PC has multiple USB ports, connect the USB cable to another port and then try again.



If no mark indicating the USB connection is displayed even after performing above Steps (a) and (b), the digital camera or USB cable may have a problem.



4. Check whether or not "Removable Disk" is displayed in "My Computer." (For example, when the operating system is Windows XP, a FinePix icon in the shape of a digital camera is displayed.)

If "Removable Disk" is not displayed, install the USB driver again.



5. Automatic startup software (Exif Launcher) may not function properly.

Perform the following procedure.



[Windows XP]

Hi Donald. not sure how many calls you get from


The fault seems to be in the sensor and the mode switch of the loading system which is connected with the main controller processor and loading driver.
This can be a failure of the tape end detector which is a IR - infra red- emitter which is placed in the center of the tape tray and MUST feed continuous signal to the END IR detectors placed at either ends.
Also the tape seems to load with a false detection of the cassette within when the tray is closed for this reason of the failure along with a possible misplaced mode switch settings. This triggers to make the loading move without a reason and so can be due to failure of the the mode switch or unbalanced settings.You will need some experience to remove the tray unit, then check on the IR sensors and also check the settings of the loading drive and mode switch.

My philips dvdr3510v player is not opening tray its saying blocked how do i solve the problem


This seems to be a manufacturing problem. When the disk is loaded it is centered on a spindle and to make sure that centering succeeds a magnet mounted to a small white rotating plastic piece on the top of the DVD drive. The magnet seems to bee too strong on my machine so the spindle isn't able to disengage when trying to open the tray. The result is blocking. It is of course possible that the electric motor moving the tray and the spindle movement is too weak. Anyhow this is how I solved the problem on my Philips Video/DVS DVDR3510V:
1) Disconnect the device from mains power.
2) Unscrew the eight screws holding the top in place.
3) Unscew four black screws keeping the DVD unit fixed to the main body.
4) Carefully drag the DVD slightly back which allows you to rotate it to point sideways (this allows simpler testing of the mechanical working).
5) Unscew the two blank screws keeping the front half of the top of the DVD unit in place.
6) Using a small screw driver carefully bend the clips to allow the top plate to be removed.
7) Connect the mains power and don't ouch anything inside.
8) After startup try Eject/Load several times to ensure that the DVD unit is mechanically working OK. If the Eject/Load doesnt work with the top off there is no use going further.
9) Disconnect mains power.
10) Use a small felt tipped pen to mark the face of the small metallic (magnet) part in the center of the white movable component fixed to the top.
11) Using a small flat screw driver carefully open the clips holding the two halves of the white component together. Careful! The clips may break easily.
12) Cut small pieces of tape (or use thick drawing paper). The idea is to lift the magnet slightly upwards. We thus use tape or paper as shims. Notice that a hole is needed in the center.
13) When the shims are in place put the magnet back oriented correctly (if you didn't mark it test it against the spindle rotating the disk. The correct orientation is where the magnetic force is strong.
14) Mount the halves back into the hole in the top component and align the clips. Then press the halves together until the clips connect.
15) Put the top component back and clip it into place. No need to screw in the screws yet.
16) Connect mains power, don't touch anything inside.
17) Check that the tray now opens both with a disk and when empty. Check that a DVD is recognized correctly (too little pressure leads to disk loading failure).
18) If the DVD unit now works assemble it and you are done.

The first picture shows the white round plastic part that is modified on the left hand side of picture.
The second picture shows an additional support I glued to the top with super glue because the top is fairly flexible. Initially I thought this was the reason why the spindle got stuck. I think the extra support is unnecessary but i didn't bother with removing it.

When I plug in my camera, it starts to load "Kodak


Hello,

The camera is loading a application that uses JAVA script and thus there might be a issue with the program itself.

Kodak comes with Easy share software witch allows you to share your photos on sites like Face book, ect.

What you could do at this point if you want a FAST solution is:

1. Click on START then MY COMPUTER
2. The camera should be there under STORAGE DEVICES
3. Click on the camera or storage device then click on the folder witch will open up a couple folders for video and pictures.
4. Right mouse click and drag over all the files then click MOVE/ or copy
5. Select your hard drive C:/ then select USERS then my pictures
6. right click in the my pictures folder then click paste!

This will safe your pictures to your local hard drive if you use the MOVE command it will delete the photos off the camera and move it to that folder.

The other option is to reinstall the Kodak software that came with the camera.

If you have any questions let me know!

My Kodak Picture CD will not auto load


If your computer is operating with WINDOWS 95, WINDOWS 98, or WINDOWS NT 4.0 Systems, this CD contains software that automatically launches when you insert the CD. Getting Started:
Insert your Picture CD disc and wait for the software to load (it could take as long as 5 minutes, depending on your machine configuration, CD drive speed, and the number of images on the Picture CD).
Note: This loading process installs some Picture CD program files onto your hard drive. The KODAK Picture CD installer walks you through the steps. The final step may be to restart your computer. If so, be sure to restart to complete the installation.
After your computer has rebooted:
  1. Eject the Picture CD and re-insert it into the CD drive.
    The program should launch automatically.
  2. Click the magazine cover to turn to the Contents Page.
  3. Follow the links to read and do more with your digital photos.
If nothing happens after waiting for the Auto Play, you may need to manually start the Auto Play program. (Auto Play is a program that starts up the CD installation process the first time you use the CD.)
To manually start Auto Play:
  1. Right-click the My Computer icon.
  2. Select Properties from the pop-up menu.
  3. Click the Device Manager tab.
  4. Click the CD-ROM drive icon; click the "+" to view the CD-ROM drive information.
  5. Double-click the CD-ROM driver icon.
  6. Select Properties from the pop-up menu.
  7. Click Settings.
  8. Check Auto insert notification and click OK.
Note: This enables all CDs to automatically run any Auto Play software.

Windows does not recognize camera


Here are the steps to take.

1. Establish whether or not you have a connection between your camera/computer by going to your start button, control panel, system, hardware tab and device manager. The camera must be powered on and in playback mode (should automatically go to playback mode when connected, camera's screen should go black if there is a connection). Make sure you have a fully or nearly fully charged battery in your camera.

2. Once in device manager, look under Imaging Devices. If your camera is properly connected it should show up as Canon Powershot SD800. If it shows a yellow exclamation point, there is a driver issue, and even if it doesn't show a yellow exclamation point, you may want to update your driver anyway by right clicking and having the system search automatically for driver updates. If download of driver begins, great...once finished, restart camera and your problem may be resolved.

3. If there are any other imaging devices, you may have to temporarily disable them to avoid conflicts.

4. If you have any other imaging software running, exit or close the program in your system tray (down by your clock in the right hand corner of your computer's desktop.

5. Try again to connect.

6. If you are on a desktop, try a rear usb port vs. a front port. You can also try a different port on a laptop. After each change, try restarting camera to establish connection.

7. Go to start/My Computer and look for the icon for your camera...you will be able to download images even without Canon software loaded onto computer so this is not a software issue if you have no hardware connection. If you see the icon, right click on it and choose Get or Import pictures. From there the default Microsoft scanner and camera wizard should launch and you will be able to import your images.

8. If still no connection, try going to Start/Run and type in services.msc here you are looking for 4 services to be running. Check under status of each service and make sure it reads that each of these services are started.
  • Canon Camera Access Library 8 (if Canon software loaded)
  • SSDP discovery service
  • Universal Plug and Play Device Host
  • Windows Image Acquisition
Once all of these services are started on your computer, restart camera once again. If any of the last three services are not on your computer or are not started, connecting will be a problem.

If all of these steps fail, try purchasing an SD card reader from your local electronics store for around $12 and download images from there. Canon also offers lifetime technical support for your Powershot, so give them a call if none of these steps work or if you would like someone to walk you through it.

Best of luck to you!
