Problems with camera display on kodak APS (something or other......)
I can take the picture but once taken every possible indicator on the display lights up and the camera jams. The only way I can get the shutter thing back down is to take the battery out and then close. When the battery is re-inserted the picture has actually taken and the display shows as it should. When the next picture is taken exactly the same thing happens.
I have tried changing the battery but it makes no difference.
Re: Problems with camera display on kodak APS (something...
I am having exactly the same problem (I have a T550). On the last film I shot, the only way to advance the film was to pull the battery out and re-insert it every time. When I printed that film, all the frames are blank!
Kodak's FAQ about "clearing the logic" suggests a solution for that problem.
1. Turn camera off
2. Pull battery out
3. Turn camera on
4. Click the shutter approximately 6 times
5. Turn camer off
6. Repeat step 4
7. Reinstall battery
I just tried that but the problem persists. I am now going to leave the battery out for several hours; maybe this will help. Otherwise, well it is time to bite the bullet and buy a digital !

You only can view pictures shot in the same camera. Although a camera has a micro processor, it does not have the same viewing possibilities as a computer. Sometimes when you not even see your own pictures, shot in the camera, pressing the display button several times can help or putting the camera in viewing mode. If Notting works, and you even can see something on the display while shooting pictures, you have to fear the display is defect.
Possible that the LCD is faulty or the main optical sensor - the CCD- is faulty.
Now check if the older pics or the loaded pics on the SD card are seen well on the LCD display. If so the LCD is good and the fault might be the CCD.
If not check the present pictures taken which are downloaded to the PC and is seen to be perfect. If not the CCD is fault which means that the pictures taken are totally white.
Get estimate from Kodak service before you open the set.
Once the pictures have gone from the camera to the computer a different code or tag is used so the computer programing can read it it's a one way ticket from the camera to the computer hard drive but not back. Once the file is opened altered (by deleting images) the camera firmware can not read the file.
Solution: Ebay has used cameras (DX4530) for about $75.00 with shipping. Kodak's repair service for these cameras is done by mailing in the camera -- and the baseline starting price is about $140. I'm planning to go to Ebay and buying from a seller with a good track record and reputation.
