Summary: My wife bought me this frame for Christmas so that I could take the family photos with me on my deployment. Stupidly I never tested it before I left - it just remained in its' box until I packed it in May. Finally settled I plug it in and it immediately goes to the 'White Screen of Death'. $95 dollar Christmas present down the pan and now nothing to view my family on. THANK YOU KODAK - Thankfully the company are now bankrupt.
Summary: Purchased at Sams Club for a gift; finally open the box to get it set up for Christmas and all I get is a blank white screen will turn on and do nothing. It won't even turn off without disconnecting the power cord. Wish I had seen these reveiws BEFORE purchasing as this seems to be a very common occurence among this product. Now I'm just out $90.00. Will never buy Kodak products again.
Summary: I bought this last year after reading good reviews. But a year later it starts up with a white screen and looking at the complaints it looks like this is a manufacturing defect. Much like HP products this may be low quality manufacturing. I hope Kodak goes bankrupt soon.
Summary: I cannot figure it out..Its not the file size nor the filename length or the characters in the name; it just doesn't like some of my photos. I can see them perfectly on my PC etc but on the frame it thinks some of the files (which appears ok in creative suite/photoshop etc) are corrupted. The frame also hangs every now and then, so I updated the firmware and it seems a little better aka no hanging. Still doesn't like some of the pictures though.
Summary: The M 820 may work fine as a picture frame, but if you search for .mov file problems with this device you will find it actually does NOT support this format. (Yes, I did update the firmware and try again before writing this review) Kodak claims on the box and on the web that the M820 supports .mov, .avi, mpeg1, and mpeg4 file formats. In reality it DOES NOT. This frame only supports Mpeg1 files. You will have to use compression software to translate your videos to mpeg1.
Summary: When I got this frame it did not work right out of the box. White screen of death. You turn it on, screen goes white. Nothing happens. No buttons work nothing. I called up Kodak and because I just got it they asked paid for the shipping to send it to them and they'd fix it. Alright. I wasn't happy that it didn't work but at least they'd fix it right? Well they sent it back and it worked for oh about 3 months. Then back to the white screen of death.
Summary: Bought this for my mother-in-law thinking Kodak is a recognizable name photography so it must be a good product. Needless to say I was completely wrong. I too got the white screen of death after trying to load more pictures just months later. Since I did not have proof of purchase they could only offer that I send it in for repair and pay them the same as it cost to buy a new one to fix it.
Summary: After 1 year of use, the screen went white and I was unable to correct this problem. Then talked to Kodak which offered to repair my item for more than it costs. I will not buy a Kodak digital frame again as research online showed this to be a common problem.
