Hey Wistra,
You could try resetting your camera to the factory settings by choosing the reset to default setting in the menu. If this doesn't work the sensor on the camera is most likely broken, and you should have the camera looked at by an authorized service technician. If the camera was purchased less than a year ago the repair would most likely be covered under manufacturers’ warranty. I hope this helps!

Sincerely,
Allan
Go Ahead. Use Us.

Hi

It sounds like either your aperture is stuck closed and no light is getting in, or your CCD is defective and it's not converting the light that enters the lens into a digital signal for the camera to record.

Unfortunately this model has design problems, we have probably had 100's of them over the years... I hate to say it, but it's probably time to replace it with something newer.

Good luck from Darntoothysam com

If you can check previous pics and menu settings there, isn't a problem with the LCD screenviewer; sound like a problem with the CCD Image Sensor problem.

Check the link and keep us updated.

Flashing colours on screen


You have the review feature active and the flashing colors are most likely showing you the highlights and shadows that are too bright or too dark for a good photo. Look for the features in the menu to turn them off or try a factory default reset from the camera menu.

Camera not displaying images as seen through viewfinder. The screen is black. Image controls and info can be seen but the picture is just black. Takes photos which are also black; but previous photos...


A stuck shutter is another common failure mode for digital cameras, particularly for the SD1000. The symptoms of a stuck or "sticky" shutter are very similar to CCD image sensor failure. The camera may take black pictures (for shutter stuck closed), or the pictures may be very bright and overexposed, sometimes with lines, especially when taken outdoors (for shutter stuck open). To confirm a stuck shutter, put the camera in any mode other than "Auto", and turn the flash OFF (you don't want to blind yourself for the next step). Next look down the lens and take a picture. You should see a tiny flicker in the center of the lens as the shutter opens and closes. If no movement is seen, then you likely have a stuck shutter. If so, please see this link for further info and a simple fix that may help.


By the way, my wife's SD1000 also has this problem every once in a while. I easily fix it by using the following steps from the link: powering on the camera, opening and closing the battery door, and flicking the end of the lens barrel with my fingertip (or you can tap it with a pencil as discussed in the link).

How do you set the apeture on a Kodak Easyshare DX4530 camera?


1 In any Still mode, press the Menu button.

2 Press to highlight Exposure Compensation , then press the OK

button.

3 Press to select the Exposure

Compensation setting.

 If pictures are too light, decrease the

value.

 If pictures are too dark, increase the

value.

4 Press the OK button to accept the change.

5 Press the Menu button to exit the menu.

6 Use the camera screen to frame your

subject. Press the Shutter button half-way

to set the focus, then continue pressing

completely down to take the picture.

This setting remains until you change the
Mode dial or turn off the camera.

I can not see image on screen


If you can see the picture before you take it, then the taken picture is black - Camera needs repair at a service shop - aligment.
If you cannot see the picture before you try and take it - The lens shutter is jammed. A repair shop is required. Could be $80 -$200+ depending on parts costs and labour.
These are only probable answers.

I have a dx4530 and when I take pictures, the screen is black. My guess is that there is a battery inside for the shutter and the battery needs to be replaced.


No unfortunantly this is the mechanics of the camera.
DX4530 is no longer repaired by KODAK due to lack of spear parts.

However thay do offer a Trade up option where you can trade your existing camera for a favorable price to a Brand new model.
