Here are the tips you need to be followed
#1:
Remove the batteries from the camera, wait a few minutes. Put a fresh set of batteries back in and turn the camera on.
#2: Remove the batteries, then remove the memory card. Then install the new batteries, when you turn it on it should come back to life. Error E30 means you don't have a memory card installed, so turn it off, slip in the memory card and turn it on one last time.
#3: Insert the cameras Audio/Video (AV) cable, and turn the camera on. Inserting this cable ensures that the camera's LCD screen remains off during the start process. Thus extra battery power is available to the camera's lens motor during start up. This extra power can be useful in overcoming grit or sand particles that may be jamming the lens.
#4: Place the camera flat on its back on a table, pointed at the ceiling. Press and hold the shutter button down, and at the same time press the power-on button. The idea is that the camera will try to autofocus while the lens is extending, hopefully seating the lens barrel guide pins in their slots.
#5: Blow compressed air in the gaps around the lens barrels with the idea of blowing out any sand or grit that may be in there jamming the lens. Other variations include blowing with a hair dryer in “no heat” setting, or sucking the gaps with a vacuum
#6: Repeatedly tap the padded/rubber usb cover on a hard surface with the intent of dislodging any particles that may be jamming the lens. Other variations include hitting a side of the camera against the palm of your hand.

    #7: Try forcing the lens. More people have reported success with this method than with any of the other methods.
    Variations include gently pulling, rotating, and/or twisting the lens
    barrel while hitting the power button. Attempt to gently straighten or
    align the barrel if it's crooked or twisted. Another variation includes
    looking for uneven gaps around the lens barrel, and then pushing on the
    side of the lens barrel that has the largest gap (note pushing the lens
    barrel all the way in is NOT recommended as it may become stuck there).
    While doing any of the above, listen for a click that indicates that
    the lens barrel guide pins may have reseated in their guide slots. If
    you hear this click, immediately stop and try the camera

My kodak easy share cameras zoom lens is not retracting so the camera is not turning on


When a lens got stuck, by whatever reason, the camera shuts down to prevent further damage to the lens construction. If you can't move the lens at all. PLEASE DON'T APPLAY ANY FORCE TO THE LENS, just feel, try to find out what is holding the lens. If you can't see anything, the defect can be on the inside. This can't be changed easy. I don't believe in shock therapy, because you could help the lens to move once, but when something is wrong, it will happen again and the damage will add up.
But perhaps your camera is not turning on and that is why the lens does not move?
Did you try recharging the battery? And check if the battery has enough power?
Try that first.

I turned on my f410 camera but the lens does not extend out at all


The gear linkage in the lens has more than likely seized, you will need a specialist to handle the repair, but before you proceed ask for a estimate.

The lens can move in and out in straight line. If, due to the hit the lens casing got bent then it will stop moving. The glass may be fine but the casing seems to have taken a dent and is touching the sides somewhere. And to zoom in or out the lens have to move in and out. Try to get the lens in the middle of the lens well. Try to pull it out when powering on.

Olympus Fe-330 The lens will not open, Please help?!?


Lens is stuck!... Possible some dust won't let the zoom to move.
Hold upsite down the lens and very softly tapped around.but do not force the lens. then try to turn on in same condition. If did not worked
try to oposite , Show lens optic to up to sky and try again.
If did not moved you need techguy to remove and clean the lens base from dust and lubricated again.

Lens is stuck out


Chanches are the lens received impact damage or there is some dirt, liquid like pop that is blocking your lens from moving. Try moving the lens and see if this will dislodge the lens. View the lens from top and sides, if it is sitting on an angle it has received impact damage.
