Question about Kodak EasyShare C743 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Cracking sound My camera started making a loud cracking sound and I can also feel it right under the silver decorative line. It does it at random but frequent times. Moreso after or during taking a picture. The flash no longer comes on automatically either. I have to press the redeye button at the top every time I take a picture. What could be causing this and how do I fix it? Thanks :)

    oh man :( Thank you for your help :) There's no way to fix it myself huh?

  • Charlotte Leto Aug 03, 2007

    ok thank you so much for all your help! :o) I guess I'll have to take it to a repair person. Do you know offhand if this tends to be an expensive repair?

There is short in the flash section. This is a potentially dangerous voltage and could give you nasty jolt. Contact Customer service immediately

    Absolutely not.
    If this is a new item return it to the seller or contact Customer help at Kodak

    Check out the Kodak Website customer support.
    Depending on the age of the camera, Kodak will either exchange it for another or offer a good discount on a new one.
    A repair is not an option with this type of thing.

I have an 05 Mazda 6, when my car is while idling it makes a loud cracking/popping noise.

A cracking or popping noise is frequently an indication of an air/fuel mixture that is too lean (too much air). Have a mechanic or mechanically inclined friend check the various vacuum lines on your engine. Sounds like a cracked or broken vacuum hose on the intake side of the engine. Good luck.

When pedaling starts off making squeaking sound but now it is very loud with cracking and popping.

Pedal or bottom bracket bearings need a look. The web has many resources for identifying noises on a bike. Just search for a few key words. For example "bicycle pedal loud cracking and popping"

One resource...

Happy hunting.

Crackling is usally one or two things my guess would be bad grounding of the amp or bad connection with the jacks or plug it self try to make it crackle on purpose by jiggling the jacks see if it has any effect on the crackling try to narrow your possibilitys

Loud rumble sound, Vent hose vibration

That model of neptune dryer had a problem with the blower housings cracking. When the housing cracks, it binds forward into the blower wheel making a loud "rumble" noise and vibration. If you open the door and manually turn the drum and you hear a rubbing noise and feel alot of resistance, then you have a cracked blower housing and need to replace it. It is not an easy job to replace, so if your not familiar with dryers, you should have a technician replace it. Let me know if you have any further questions. shane
