Cushioned or not, your camera likely landed on the end of its lens, dislodging it from the track it rides on to zoom, or jamming it on the track so that it cannot move, and the camera powers itself off to prevent further damage when it senses the lens problem. You can try a home remedy by powering the camera off, and then holding the zoom button while you power up. Sometimes that will pop the lens back on the track and restore function. You can also try GENTLY pulling on the lens while you power the camera on (or GENTLY pushing if the lens is extended). Some owners have reported success by GENTLY tapping the lens end on a firm surface, but that can also cause more damage. If all else fails, you'll need to get a repair quote (NOT an estimate) from or your local Kodak repair point to decide whether or not the camera is worth the cost of repair (some repairs can exceed the cost of a new camera).

Camera dropped. lens is stuck in open position, won't turn on


Thank you for using FixYa for your problem

Zoom lens is jammed, It should be taken to an authorized repair centre for a repair estimate. Very few digital cameras have any user-serviceable parts.

Lens Stuck open on Mz67 hp camera Error code Mz60-022

Was this stuck fully open or was the lens partially opened, or was the lens jammed?

The lens can be removed and replaced with another lens from another non-functioning camera (See ebay). The lens component can also be dissembled. Putting the lens back together is tricky because the parts have to be aligned just right for the lens to work. If working with a Jammed lens, extra care has to be considered not to break any of the moving plastic parts of the lens or that part (if not entire lens) is junk.

With the motor detached from the lens, the lens should extend and retract freely. Use this to test the lens when you dissemble the camera. Be careful of the flash board.

Camera does not respond

I suggest you open the battery compartment and check the connections on the battery. It may be that they are a little dirty, preventing proper electrical connection, in which case you can clean them with a little cotton bud and perhaps some methylated spitits.

I can't turn my camera on????

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 ...

Here's some things that you can do to try to correct it. They only seem to work for less than 50% of the lens errors, but if the camera is out of warranty, they're worth a try:
