Question about Kodak EasyShare C340 Digital Camera

2 Answers

Not turning on

The camera was on my wrist and it hit the counter, making the batteries fly out. When i put them back in and turned it on the battery lid was not closing all the way and made the camera turn off, leaving the zoom lense stay stuck out. (it closes when i turn the camera off normally)

Make sure you're putting the batteries back in the correct way. In the door should be a piece of metal which efectively shorts the top and bottom of each battery together (there's only 2 as you know) The act of closing the lid activates a small switch inside the camera. This is done by a small piece of plastic which pushes the switch when the door is closed. Have you broken the piece which holds the door? or the actual hinge? If it's the door locking mechanism the door should close in it's proper way but just won't stay locked. Putting tape over the door should make the camera work as long as it's fully closed and aligned as it used to be. If it's the hinge then the small piece of plastic which activates the switch may have broken off too. So the camera won't work until you replace complete door. What worries me is the fact that when you tried to get it going again the lens extended which obviously means you did indeed have power applied and the batteries were working. What I think may have happened is you've not only damaged the battery door but the lens assembly as well. Leaving the batteries out for a few hours and then trying again with a fully charged pair could retract the lens and by switching the camera back on it may work again (no guarantees though) If it does work again you'll have to get yourself a new door or simply use a piece of tape to hold it closed.

Hello Ariel, You need a new battery lid. The problem is the lid has a pin that when closed properly, allows the battery to power up the camera. You can get one for $30.00 on Ebay item number 7623965577 if you act fast. This is a good camera and would be worth $30.00 (plus 5.50 shipping) to fix it. Please let me know how it works. Best regards, nightdiver

Make a noise but wont turn on


What type of noise a click? Usually means starter motor not getting enough power to turn over, flay or low battery, or got stuck . Try hitting with a soft mallet. Or put car in gear and rock back and forward, as fly wheel movement may just loosen it off.

Err message appears on the display of my D80.


This may be due to the aperture ring in your lens. Try the following:

1. Turn off your camera
2. Move the aperture ring clockwise then lock
3. Turn on your camera and try again.

If this does not work, do the same thing again but turn the aperture ring counter-clockwise.

Take out the battery
When it says hit the reset button, hit the reset button.
Turn the camera to off
Take out the battery
Wait 2 minutes
Put the battery back in.
Turn on the camera. It won't say reset anymore.

Will not turn on


I had this same problem with my camera a few years back and took it into a camera store to get it fixed. It turned out that it was just the batteries I was using. You cant use regular AA batteries for this camera because they give too much power. If you just go to a walmart or target or anywhere like that, you can get AA camera batteries and that SHOULD solve the problem. let me know if that works.

Hi,
If the Olympus is using the exact same batteries as the Canon, there is a high chance that the problem is with the batteries.
