Still have the black screen on ls443
Finally able to reply. Unfortunately removing the battery for 24hrs had no effect. After keying in the date the same problem reappeared. I guess I'll have to throw myself to the mercy of the repairers.
Thanks all the same
Don't take any crap from Kodak
I had problems with my Ls443 althought different than yours. My lens continued to get stuck. I had to RMA it TWICE!! So far the replacement they sent me is doing fine. Luckly mine was under warranty. I asume yours it not.
Mine gave me an error code. When i called the techs and told them the code, they said i had to send it in. Im suprised you didn't receive an error code.
Can you see anything else on the screen like the other modes or the picture review? If you can't see anything, it might not be a software problem, but a problem with the lens. Remember, if any harware fails, the camera will crash and shut off as did mine. I talked to many people and read many forums that stated that kodaks ls443's lens was defective!!
Dont take any crap from Kodak! Even though mine was under warranty, they gave me a had time. Thier techs are pretty good. have you called them? Also, ask to speak to a manger! If you have to give the manager that "I am a loyal customer of kodak, and if you are in the business of selling defective products i will take my business elsewere and tell everyone i know the same" speech. It worked for me! you have to be persistant with kodak. Don't take any crap!
Hope this helps.
any solution to this problem
I've had my Kodak Ls433 going on 2 years now and all of a sudden last night I'm having this exact same problem. I've gone through all the settings and can't figure out what happend. It was working fine the night before. I can view pictures on the memory card, but new pictures are just black.
Help I need my camera! :eek:
