Camera Issue

01/28/2011 9:02 AM

I have a Kodak Easy Share Z710. When I take a picture & review it, the picture looks like a mini blind. Is this something that can be fixed?

Twist the little rod on the left side of the blind to open them up.

It could be quite serious (bad image sensor) or it could be as minor as some feature I'm not familar with being accidentally turned on.

Go to Kodak's support site. There you can chat online with a support team member, who will hopefully be able to assist you.

http://support.en.kodak.com/

If all else fails, they've got a firmware update on that website along with instructions on how to load it. (And in case you don't know, firmware is the program the factory loads into the IC that's inside your camera which makes it work.) You could try installing that firmware in the hopes that it resets something that's gone wonky in the firmware already in the camera. Even if you do it wrong somehow, worst case is you screw up the camera - which is what you've got now anyway.

When you download the photos to your computer (or print them), do they appear normal? If yes, then the camera's LCD display is likely defective. If the photos also show the lines, then the imaging sensor is probably defective. Either way, repairs will probably cost more than the replacement price for the camera.
