Camera switches off after each photo taken although blue light remains on and lens is extended


Are you sure it's not just shutting off the screen to conserve power? Try taking a new picture by pressing the shutter button half-way....does the camera come back to life?

Error45 Kodak easy share Ls743 LENS will not retract


Lens errors are fairly common. Usually it's sand or grit interfering with the lens extension mechanism. Or the camera's been dropped with the lens extended. Or the camera has been powered on, but the lens had been blocked preventing its extension. Or the battery ran down with the lens extended ... Unfortunately, many cameras that fall prey to this can only be corrected by professional repair. But, here are some things that you can do that may correct it. They only seem to work for less than 40% of the lens errors, but if the camera is out of warranty, they're worth a try.

Lens will not retract, camera was not dropped,


Leave the batteries out for a while and then try turning camera on..hopefully its resets the camera and retracts lens.

VERY COMMON WITH EASY SHARE. There are only a couple things you can really do. FIrst, try removing the memory card and try it. Than if that dosen't work. Try holding power button while gently wiggleing the zoom.

Kodak Z1285 Won't Turn On?


HAd exactly the same issue! You turn on the camera, lense comes out then the screen goes black (turns off)
The blue light stays on and the only way to get it to turn off is to take out the batteries.

Next time you turn on the device, the blue light comes on and the green led flashes, sometimes it powers down and other times the blue light stays on but you have no screen still. The lense stays out.

I tried the "tap" it approach and it now works fine! My suggestion has always been, if it don't work, kick it!! why didn't I try this with this camera firstly instead of trying all sorts of different button combinations to see if there was some sort of hard reset for it?

Thanks for the advice everyone and happy snapping!! :)

Kodak easy share z612 will not turn on to take a picture


When the battery dies, usually the camera will retract the lens if possible. If the battery is so dead the lens can not retract, I would recommend trying to charge or change the battery. Or try to turn the camera on, and then manually shutting it off if you can.
