    I have a Kodak DC280 that is several years old that has developed a strange
    problem. Just starting today, I am getting a black border at the top of all
    of my photos. This was never there before and it cuts off a portion of my
    viewing area. This black border at the top also shows up in the on-camera
    screen. I have gone through every setting possible and can't figure out what
    might have changed. I know this is an older camera but does anyone have any
    suggestions?

    Thanks!

    Sell it on ebay, you will get at least 50$.

    Yikes Gabbo,

    Have you tried different memory cards? Try updating the firmware? Can you
    see any pin damage? Try leaving the batteries out of the camera for a
    while. Not sure what else to suggest other than using the camera for a
    trade in to a better model. Kodak will give you $50 toward a new camera,
    even if it is not working.

    Good luck, let me know how you make out.

    Ron,

    Thanks for the suggestions - I have tried different cards, ran without
    batteries (on AC adapter), but I haven't checked for pin damage or updated
    the firmware. Both easy enough to do, I will check out tonight.

    However, I'm almost resigned to buying a new camera...

    Thanks
