Question about Kodak EasyShare C340 Digital Camera
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
