You may have bent the camera's lens housing, which will require professional repair, but the problem you describe is frequently due to corroded battery contacts inside the camera. Remove the batteries and wipe the camera contacts firmly with a clean cloth (heavy corrosion may require cleaning with a fine wire brush, steel wool, or fine sandpaper). Remove any residue that may have fallen into the battery compartment during cleaning, clean the contacts at both ends of the batteries, and reinsert them in the camera. This cleaning cures the problem about 90% of the time, and I hope it works for you.

I can't find a way to change the shutter speed on my Kodak M893Is and I've looked in the menu. Help?


The only change you can make in the shutter speed is to choose how long you want the shutter to stay open for long time exposures. If you want to make changes to things like shutter, aperture, etc. you need a much more expensive camera or even a DSLR.

My baby nephew dropped my camera on the beach and now it has some sand stuck in it and has stopped working. can this be fixed? p.s it turns on but no longer lets me take pics.


Hi!
I believe there's sand inside the lens or stabilizer - the lens unit has to be taken apart and cleaned by a professional. It's a hardware fault, not software so I'm afraid you will have to give it to a local repair shop or Kodak service center and let them clean it.
I work in Kodak service center.

Problem with my kodak easyshare m893is


That actually sounds like normal operation. The screen is set to automatically power down to save the battery. This can usually be adjusted in the setup menu to stay on for a specified time or constantly. When it powers down, a press of any button usually brings it back on.

I have a kodak camera and it turns but the light just blinks thens turns back off what can i do


The problem you describe is frequently the result of dirty/corroded battery contacts in the camera. Try removing the batteries and cleaning the inside contacts with a fine wire brush, steel wool, or fine sandpaper. Remove any residue left from the cleaning, then replace the batteries. Hopefully all will be well.

If the cleaning doesn't work you might want to check the Kodak troubleshooting guide at:
