Turn off the camera for about 5 minutes and make sure the battery is fully charge, if still the same there's a possibility that maybe some dirt get inside the lesn [arts of the camera and needs to be clean or the worse thing is the camera has a mechenical problem already...if camera is still under warranty better tale it to a service center near you....

Hope that helps..........

There is a small motor which pushes the lenses out. It may have gone bad

The lens might be stuck and needs to be physically repaired. try to bring the camera to a nearest repair center or if it is still in warranty get in touch with the manufacturer of the camera.

hope this helps.

You may try to reset the unit back to factory defaults. You can follow your operation manual regarding this. If that does not work please contact a Kodak service center if your unit is still under warranty,.

Any error message pop up? Most likely the gears are jammed and the first thing to try if it isn't under warranty is to bump it on the palm of your hand and see if it will pop out. If it still won't, then you will need to remove the outer panel to get to the gears and see if anything is stuck and try to manually get it to come out. If it doesn't work after manually pulling it out, then the motor is most likely bad or you have a broken connection somewhere. But again, don't try opening it with it in warranty

Kodak EasyShare Z740 Turns Off Fix Does your Kodak EasyShare Z740 Turns On...


Kodak EasyShare Z740 Turns Off Fix

Does your Kodak EasyShare Z740 Turns On Then Turns Off right away?
Does your Kodak EasyShare Z740 Turns Itself Off with new AA batteries in it?

Many of these Kodak EasyShare Z740 cameras that shuts off right away and will not stay on, will actually stay on if you select FAVORITES to view pictures, but just flash back and turn off if set to auto or camera mode. Try this.

If the lens cannot extend, the camera will turn itself off. You can try giving the camera a thump with the heel of your hand, but I would recommend servicing the camera rather than smashing a delicate digital instrument. After trying the steps below, a last chance alternative that works for some people is to grab and actually PULL the lens out as it tries to extend itself. Again, its delicate; if you can afford it, maybe pay for servicing before hitting and pulling on your camera.

However, before servicing your Kodak Z740 try this fix:

  1. Hold down the Time/Ascending Folder button (the button under OK on the circular panel)
  2. While holding that down, press and hold the ON/OFF button.
  3. The camera may turn itself on and stay on this time, acting normally again.

If this doesn't work for your try this:

  1. Hold down the '>' button (the one that brings you to picture review)
  2. While holding that down, press and hold the ON/OFF button.
  3. The camera may turn itself on and stay on this time, acting normally again.
If that doesn' t work, try again with the 'Trashcan' button, and ON/OFF button.

I hope that helps.

Have Kodak easyshare Z740 camera, turn on and goes right back off. Battery seems to be fine tried several charged batteries.


Remove the batteries and clean the battery contacts inside the camera with a soft cloth (a heavy buildup on the contacts may require cleaning with a fine wire brush, steel wool, or sandpaper). Remove any residue that the cleaning leaves in the camera, and then reinstall the batteries. This clears most power-on problems, but if yours persists, check the Kodak troubleshooting guide at:
