Is My Camera Screwed? Help Pleaseee

So i have a kodak z1085 is. it was a christmas gift last from 08.

has given me no problems since ive had it until now.
i used it on feb 23rd 09 to take some pics and it worked perfectly (see below)




after that i put it on my computer desk and haven't touched it since the other day (feb 26th), me and 2 friends went for a little sled ride and i was gonna take some pics. "was" being the key word, this is the pictures it takes now and i have no idea what caused it, no loose sounding parts inside, fully charged battery, formatted memory card and internal memory, used reset camera function, has not been abused, never exposed to water etc. i took good care of this camera. it is really hard to explain in words what is going on so ill post up pics of what the screen looks like when in capture mode and a refrence pic i took with my moms cam.

also a note, when we were out there in the hills one of my friends was playing around with the settings because he knows a lot more about cameras than me, and he couldn't get it to work worth a $#!+ either.




close up of the cameras display looking at my laptop on my computer desk


test


view of my cam's screen with background/subjects


reference from moms cam


little vid



thanks for any input guys!

Hey Carson, have a Canon A95 Power Shot with the same problem. Cameras about 6 years old and just started with this problem. I guess it's not just a Kodak moment. Here are some of my pictures. Deleted most of the bad ones.

ya i got the number to the repair shop they use, so i gotta wait till there open. ill try tomorrow. thanks


and to johneman:

looks kinda the same, expect yours is not as bad but still not acceptable in my eyes. at least you got a bit of use outta yours as well. from one to another, good luck with your repairs (if your going that route)

Kind of complicated, basically it converts the light information to a digital image. It's the brains of the camera.

Sweet that Kodak is stepping up, let him know you belong to a forum that discusses photography and you are going to spread the good service they are providing. Interested to see if my internet diagnoses is correct.

It's not worth fixing, being a low cost camera. Just get a new canon.
