Kodak EasyShare M1073 IS Digital Camera - Answered Questions & Fixed issues


Use the flash when you take pictures at night, indoors, or outdoors in heavy shadows. You can chose what flash mode, by pressing several times on the little button on top of the camera where the lightening logo is. One of the settings is flash off. Make sure it is not in that mode, because even when it is dark the flash won't fire. The other modes are flash, fill in flash and red eye reduction flash.

What do yu mean with where are the batteries?
Your camera only has one battery. It is in the same compartment where the memory card goes in. The battery is the small square package with only three golden contacts on it. If you did not insert a SD card (was not included with the camera) you only can shoot a few pictures and then it says memory full.
Your camera accepts SD and SCHC card, if you still want to buy a memory card.

Yes, but you will need to purchase a "Rescue" program such as Rescue - Pro, this enables you to search a camera memory card, and retrieve the last images taken.  Beware however that if your son has taken more photos after the ones he deleted then the "Rescue" software may have trouble. 
The best option is to withdraw the camera card from use until you have used the "Rescue" software, to prevent corruption to the image files. These programs are available for down load off the web, at very reasonable prices, or maybe available when purchased with a high end memory card, such as San Disk Extreme IV Series Cards.
Hope this helps Ian

Please confirm the model # so that I can check whether the large capacity memory cards are compatible with your camera.

In any still mode, press the cursor-down button (marked with a one-handed clock) to cycle through the available self-timer modes. Start the self-timer by pressing the shutter release button.

Full details are in the extended user guide in the "Using the self-timer" subsection of the "Doing more with your camera" section.

It's important to set the date and time so that pictures and videos are organized by the date taken. The date and time procedure varies slightly between camera models, but generally:
  1. Turn on the camera.
  2. Press the Menu button.
    If you see a Setup tab, press the Right arrow button to highlight the Setup tab. If you don't see a Setup tab, press the Down arrow button to select Setup, then press the OK button.
  3. Press the Down arrow button to choose Date and Time (or similar), then press the OK button.
  4. Press the Right/Left arrow buttons to move between year, month, and date. Press (or press and hold) the Up/Down arrow buttons to scroll through the year, month, and date.
    Use the same procedure to set the time.
  5. When finished, press the OK button.
NOTE: If your KODAK Camera has a touchscreen, the same principles apply. Tap the Menu icon, Setup, then Date and Time (or similar).

Hello

The problem is that the lens has become stuck in the barrel after dropping it. There are some DIY solutions you could try, but the probability is that you will have to get it fixed by a professional.

Use these at own risk as it may further damage the camera.

Firstly , try connecting your ac adapter or usb cable.

Try holding the shutter button while switching on the camera.

Look at the lens , and if some of the lens 'circles' is misaligned or not concentric then try wiggling it (while holding camera lens down).

Try gently pushing or pulling the lens when it extends but this is risky as it may cause the lens barrel to slip out of its guidance system.

Another way to do this is to place the camera lens down on a hard surface and then power it up. Be sure to use a soft cloth or something similar as to not scratch your lens or casing. Let the lens push the camera up and down a few times and sometimes the little resistance provided by the camera is enough to get things going again.

Try hitting your camera near the lens on the body with the soft tissue on the palm of your hand.

Other than that , I would take the camera to a repair center for a evaluation to see if it would cost more to repair than to replace the camera.

If it is still under warranty I would suggest you take it in before trying any of these steps and remove any off-brand batteries or accessories as some stores are really fussy about warranty repairs on camera's with non-brand accessories.

Hope the advise is useful.

Regards
Andrea

OMG this just happened to mine on 6/17...someone told me to try buying anew battery., that even though its a rechargable battery they still can die.!!!!

Kodak EasyShare... | Answered on Aug 23, 2010 | 218 views


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:

If the camera has recently been dropped it may have lens damage that is preventing the camera from powering up/down. If it hasn't been dropped, your problem may be due to weak/worn out batteries or corrosion on the battery contacts inside the camera which can prevent the full power of the batteries from flowing into the camera. Try this free fix before you do anything else: remove the batteries and wipe the camera contacts firmly with a dry cloth (heavy corrosion may require cleaning with a wire brush, steel wool, or sandpaper). Remove any residue that may have fallen into the battery compartment during cleaning, then wipe both ends of the batteries, place them back in the camera and give them a good charge (assuming that you're using rechargeable batteries). This cleaning clears the problem about 90% of the time. If it doesn't work for you, your batteries may need to be replaced, or the camera may have a problem that requires professional repair.

Make sure that you are installing a fresh/ full charge battery
Here are the steps:
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.

Pls. take the batt out of the camera. 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 batt. If not you will need to order a No power repair w.4 months and no cust damage it is covered under the warranty.

Use a card reader to safely download them to your computer. Then, format the card in the camera. This will erase it and optimize it. You should do this every so often.

This is not a straight forward question, it would depend on how often you wisg to use it. It also depends on the type of batteries you have installed. Nic Cad, Polymer, NMH. Polymer don't need charging often because they have good holding power for months. The cadmium and NMH types need a regular charge, for instance at least a top up onjce a month to keep them live. If you dont use the camera much remove the batteries whjen in storage place them in a kliplock bag and place in freezer. This may be extremem but keeps the batteries alive for years.

Always before use fully charge the ewith an intelligent charger, one that stops when capacity is reached. This prevents damage from Overcharging.

hope this is helpful,

This problem is frequently due to either weak/worn out batteries or corroded battery terminals inside the camera. If charging/replacing the batteries does not clear the problem, remove the batteries and wipe the terminals with a soft cloth (heavy corrosion may require a fine wire brush, steel wool, or sandpaper). Remove any residue left in the camera by the cleaning. Clean the terminals on the batteries in the same manner, and then replace them in the camera. This cures most problems, but if it doesn't work for you, check the Kodak troubleshooting guide at:
