Question about Kodak EasyShare V550 Digital Camera

Camera Won't Stay On

When I'm in Auto Mode and press On the camera will turn on for a second, the lens will go out, then they will immediately retract and the camera will turn off. On the LCD the white Kodak EasyShare screen will show for a second before it turns off. However, if I go to Favorites mode the camera will stay on. Help!

Camera won't remain on

It's probably a lens related problem. Blow through the lens to remove any debris stuck inside. Or tap your camera repeatedly while the lens is facing the ground.

My camera will not stay on is off and stuck with lens out

If the lens doesn't retract on most digital camera the camera also will not turn ON. It is connection or wiring between camera power and camera lens.
What Kodak Rep will ask you to do are:
1. Remove the battery and the memory card of the camera
2. Check if your using a recommended battery and if its new or fully charge. batteries for Z1275 are Ni-MH rechargeable; CRV3 Lithium; 2AA Lithium
3. Insert the batteries back in the camera in correctly
4. Set the camera in Auto mode (its the camera icon on the dialing mode of the camera)
5. Try to turn it ON
If still will not turn ON and the lens will not retract
6. If your using a rechargeable battery Kodak Rep will ask you to charge the battery until its fully charge.
If your using a disposable battery they will ask you to try to use a new battery out from the box.
After all those steps still the camera failed to work, it will be send for repair. The number of the Kodak support line is 1 800 235 6325 (23KODAK)

Lens won't retract. Camera powers off immediately after powering on without retracting lens. New battery didn't help.

Are you using the recommnded battery KODAK Li-Ion Rechargeable Digital Camera Battery KLIC-7004

first you need to do make sure the battery is fully charged., now if you if this solution will not resolve the issue it means that the Gear Lens is defective thats why your Lens will not retract and camera will not stay On. you need to call kodak to send your camera for repair call toll free 1 800 235 6325., Gudluck!

Powershot SD1000 automatically shuts down in Camera mode

In any mode that the camera will stay on, press the "Menu" button and navigate to the RESET option and try to reset the camera. See if this will get the camera to function properly.

Shutdown sometimes fails - Lens retracts then immediately extends again

I am having the same problem with my camera. I have to take the batteries out to get it to shut down. I also cannot view my photos on the camera, when I try to turn it to view, it goes to shoot mode.

Lumix lens retracts and extends

Belikes, any external object is trapped in between your Lens Motor and Camera Body. You should consult Authorized Service Personnel to handle this trouble.

Kodak Z700


Tentative solution:
I had the identical problem. I went as far as disassembling the camera ... not recommended.

Instead of fussing with the lens cover, I pressed on the lens assembly (gently), the lens retracted and the lens cover closed.

My camera works now. It will be my last Kodak.

Good Luck,
