While in a "protective case", my Kodak V1003 fell to the floor and damaged it's screen. The LCD resembles a cracked windshield with vertical colorful lines and random black blots of ink on it. Would it cost more to have it repaired opposed to buying another camera?

The following procedure works on the V1003. It uses the same LCD screen as the V803.
It would appear you have a damaged LCD screen. The same problem happened to my daughter's V803. The camera will take pictures fine but you will only be able to see them if you download them onto a PC. A replacement screen can be easily ordered and replaced. Call Eastman Kodak. Their parts department can be reached at (800) 431-7278 ext 3. Tell them the model number of your camera and tell them you want to order a LCD screen for it. The cost of the new screen is $31.00 + $15.00 shipping. Don't let them talk you into sending it back for repair. You are looking at a repair bill over $80.00. To replace the screen, remove all of the small philips head screws that are in the chrome band that runs around the center ridge of the camera. After removing the screws, you will be able to separate the rear half of the camera from the front half. The LCD screen is pressed into a rubber gasket in the rear half of the camera. You will see that there is a small, flat orange ribbon cable that connects the old LCD screen to a black connector on the camera's motherboard. Using a VERY small flat blade screw driver, pry up the top tab on black connector. This will unlock the connector and allow you to remove the flat ribbon cable from the black connector. Remember the orientation of the old screen and its cable as you will want to replaced the new screen and cable exactly the way the original was installed. Using the same small flat blade screw driver, pry out the old display. Install the new display into the rubber gasket into the back half of the camera. Insert the ribbon cable into the mother board's black connector and press down on the panel to lock the cable into place. Lay the rear half of the camera face down on the table (rear buttons facing down) and place the front half of the camera over top of the rear half. This will allow you to put the camera back together and help prevent the new LCD screen from falling back out. The LCD screen has pads attached to the surface behind it. When you reinstall the front half of the camera, those pads help hold the LCD screen in place with pressure from the motherboard. Replace all of the screws. If you did it correctly, the camera will operate like new. Last word of advice. Buy a padded hard shell case for this camera. These cameras are well known for LCD screen failures due to shocks and drops.

My camera says internal memory is full...what does that mean and how do I fix this.
Posted by jamlutz on
Your camera has a built-in memory for storing a small amount of pictures when you don't have a memory card in the camera. Yours is full. You can go into the menu and find "copy" which will allow you to copy the internal memory to a memory card for easy downloading to your computer. After you do this, you should remove your card, go into the menu and find "format"..follow the on-screen instructions to erase the internal memory and promise that you will never use it again. It's way too much trouble!

kodak af camera dropped and lens cockeyed stuck open
Posted by hapydogs on
Lens errors are fairly common. Usually it's sand or grit interfering with the lens extension mechanism. Or the camera's been dropped with the lens extended. Or the camera has been powered on, but the lens had been blocked preventing its extension. Or the battery ran down with the lens extended ...
Here's some things that you can do to try to correct it. They only seem to work for less than 50% of the lens errors, but if the camera is out of warranty, they're worth a try:

My kodak easyshare V1003 camera will not turn on. It worked a few days ago and now it will not charge or turn on. I just bought new batteries and it still will not turn on. Any suggestions on how to fix the problem?
Posted by kentara on
1. Make sure you will install a new or fully charged battery/batteries into your camera. 2. Clean the battery contacts. a. Remove the battery/batteries and the memory card from your camera, then wipe the battery contacts with a soft, clean cloth. b. Reinstall the battery/batteries into your camera. Please make sure that you are installing a fresh/ fully charged battery c. Without the memory card, turn your camera on. 4. Please test with the a different battery If you do not have access to another battery Try these steps instead: Please take the battery out of the camera. b. Insert the charger into the unit from the main socket and turn the camera on. If the camera works you will need to replace the battery. If you camera doesn?t switch on you will need to order a No power repair or a new cable.

Kodak Retinar Aspheric AF 3X lost cable and no software for my new pc
Tried reading the card via my Epson RX 500 printer but it shows as no card available. The printer card reader works fine with other cards such as XD.
Would a separate USB card reader solve the problem?
Posted by terryculle... on
Yes, that's one of your option but it would be better to purchase a cable compatible to your camera and download the software that supports the camera. You can get the software at www.kodak.com/go/easysharesw

When I take a picture it turns out white or blurry.
Posted by mjfowldlew... on
There are lot of complex settings in your camera and so a wrong setting may cause such problem. So resetting your camera to default settings / factory settings will solve your problem. Use your camera user manual to know how to reset the camera to factory settings.
I hope this is useful in solving your problem.

My Kodak Digital Camera has a screen frozen. I was deleting a pic when it froze,I need help NOW. Also the flash light is flashing green.
Posted by tailsghost on
This just happened to me last night. Literally, the EXACT same thing. Here's the sollution:
Wait 'til your camera has run out of chage, it will then turn off. The camera lens will still be sticking out, though. Once it has turned off, take your charger, plug it in, and then charge your camera. Once the charger is actually in the camera itself, it will turn on and resume its' normal mode. :)

When camera on, LCD screen is blank/white with some vertical moving stripes at bottom. Can not view scene camera is aimed at. What is wrong with it?
Posted by samisuki on
Does the camera take good pictures? Have you tried downloading them into a PC? If the pictures look OK on the PC but not on your camera's LCD screen, then the LCD screen is most likely defective.
Please read this article that I wrote regarding LCD screen replacement.

Hi! my kodak camera has a problem. every time I turn it on the screen turns blue and some letters on that says,"ERROR L03" all the time and I can't do anything at all. I want to know if there is a solution for it?
Posted by Anonymous... on
L03 means that the firmware does not have the correct checksum.
Firmware has to be reinstalled. I can help you do this, but as firmware
files and the way they are updated are considered confidential, I can't
help you here in public. You can contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org
(skype too by this e-mail).
