Kodak EasyShare M853 Digital Camera lens error 122,1,0,0

Hi there,

We recently purchased one of these cameras and after only a short time we're having a major problem with it. The inner lens has only partly retracted and is stuck and won't fully retract. The camera is not not useable because of this problem...keeps telling me there is a "lens error 122,1,0,0".

Through my own research I have found out this is a common fault with this model and would like to know what options Kodak offer with regards to fixing or replacing the camera?

Kind Regards

Margaret :)

ATTENTION:::
TO EVERYONE WHO POSTED THE COMMENTS ABOUT HOW TO FIX THIS PROBLEM I WANNA SAY THANKS. ALL I HAD TO DO WAS POP THE LENS OUT MYSELF AND THE CAMERA IMMEDIATELY WENT BACK TO NORMAL. AND NO THIS ISNT A PROBLEM WITH THESE MODELS....ITS JUS THAT WHEN THE CAMERA'S BATTERY DIES IT AUTOMATICALLY TURNS OFF AND IF U LET YOUR BATTERY GET REALLY LOW IT DOESNT HAVE ENOUGH ENERGY TO FULLY RETRACT THE LENS....WHICH IN RETURNS CAUSES THE LENS TO GET STUCK..
IN THE FUTURE JUS TURN YOUR CAMERA OFF AS SOON AS THE BATTERY LIGHT BLINKS

is the light that's coming on green or red?
if it's red, there's a charging error - contact kodak, they may provide a 5v ac adapter to resolve your charging issue

if it's green, was it blinking or solid? is the battery drained?
if the battery still has a little charge on it, please connect it to the computer then turn it on, check if there's power light
check if the screen is black - that means it's making a connection and the charging is the only issue - computer not detecting it, maybe resolved by kodak's software support

if the camera screen is active - that means there's definitely something wrong with the camera

arrange repairs with kodak, include the battery and usb cable

After inserting your memory card into the camera, you should be able to transfer the pictures from the internal memory to the memory card. Choose the option to review your pictures and hit the menu button while reviewing the pictures. Within that menu, there will be an option for memory storage. Choose internal memory. Exit the menu and re-enter it while still in the review mode. This time, select the Copy To menu option to transfer your pictures to the memory card.

I got this camera from my friend's daughter. She told me she only used it a few times and won't charge. At first, I tried to charge it thru the USB port, got a brief green light then 3 red blinks just like others. So, I tried to charge it thru a powered USB hub and it charges. Once it fully charged, I took some pictures and tried to charge it again thru a regular USB (not the powered USB hub I used earlier) and it is charging right now. This is also true for a certain cell phones. If you let the battery drained its power completely all the way, you must charge it with a high current charger to wake up the battery before you can charge thru USB port.

lens stuck out; camera won't stay on

the lens on my sony dsc-s500 is stuck out and when I push the power button it lights up and cyber-shot shows on the screen then it turns off immediately.  I haven't dropped it or anything.

When turned on the lens comes out of the camera BUT the shutter closes and when the camera if off the shutter opens? Any ideas

I have the same problem. Its actually because the On/Off button got pushed in somehow and its stuck. At this time right now, im not sure how to make it unstuck, but sometimes it will stay on. But when you push on, since its being held down, its stuck that way and immediately turns off because its still being held down constantly. Maybe try using a thing needle to try and push it out?

Lens Error Message 10f, 1, 0, 0

My camera was working just fine the other day. I took it out on Easter to take pictures of my kids, the camera came on, the lens came out, then it told me Lens error 10f, 1, 0, 0 and shut itself off. I thought maybe the battery was low so I recharged and still not work. I turn it on and it shuts itself right off again. Any Suggestions?
