Camera shuts off but lens doesn't retract

Camera was in use, shut it off and the lens would not close. Power did go off. Trying to turn it back on, it will not come on and lens does not move. Camera will click like it is trying but appears to be stuck. If there is a reset button, I can not find it and do not see one in the user manual. Any suggestions?????????????????

Ok...This Fix will fix a large percentage of Stuck Lens cameras. It will involve the disassembly of your camera in order to gain access to the Lens Block Assy. If you aren't mechanically inclined then I wouldn't attempt this..If you are mechanically inclined, and can remember how things come apart and go back together then read on. Once you have the lens block out of your camera body, you have to remove the Zoom Gear Assembly. Once you do this, try to move your lens in and out by turning the remaining drive gear on the lens. Things to look for....Missing Teeth, Sand, Grit, Lint. Get a can of compressed air and blow any debris out. Observe..look for obvious obstructions. If you see No obstructions, then the problem runs deeper. These lenses Telescope using Internal Grooves inside the lens Walls. The inside wall of the Outer lens barrel has these grooves that guide the inner lens/iris as it telescopes out you notice it stays stationary, but the outer shell turns. What happens when you drop the camera on the lens, it pushes the inner iris assembly out of these grooves and it becomes seized. You either have to PULL it back into the groove if it has only dislodged on 1 side, or take the entire lens apart and Re-Track it. (Very Complicated and tedious). If you get the timing off, you will have to play with it until you get all the Tabs and slots lined up perfectly and put it back together. These lenses have small flexible ribbon cables that break very very easy. Its easier to just by a camera with a broken screen and just swap the lenses. But, The fix i just mentioned is for the Mechanically Curious...It works about 75% of the time for me. Sometimes the lenses I see are So jammed that internal pieces, Guide pins, Plastic tabs are broken....I just throw those away because they are not repairable because the damage is too bad. Sand, Grit, Sticky syrup from drink spills, and heavy lint are what I see alot too. Clean it up and remove the obstructions...Follow these steps and you MAY have good luck. What else do you have to lose except a couple hundred bucks for someone else to do just What I mentioned...

Camera is always shutting down even if its not low battery.

This is what usually happen when the battery power is too low to drive the lens motor that results in the camera using more battery power to close the lens causing the lens to jam and shut down. you can retract the lens ,replace the batteries and also check the warranty cover for the camera if still under warranty you can return for possible replacement

Lens wont retract

When the lens will not retract and camera is not functional (no picture ondisplay, and does not shoot) , and you already tried replacingbatteries with a new fresh set (ensure please) , and then restartingcamera with no memory card inside, then camera is faulty.

Try aneasy fix by pushing gently the lens (do not force them, just help them)while you turn off camera at same time. Try also switching the modeselector.

If still no luck , then the camera must be disassembled to fix the problem.

Possible reasons are :

  • Faulty lens mechanism or jammed lens (camera usually turns off by itself in this case)
  • Main board faulty.
  • Ribbon cable to main board broken or connector defective.
  • If there is no power at all it is the connector from batteries to main board, this is also a ribbon cable.

If the camera is less than one year old will be replaced by manufacturer.

If your warranty is expired you can get an estimate for repair frommanufacturer, or from a third party like Advance Camera here :Advance Camera Repair you can book the repair online.

I semi resolved the problem with my Kodak Z1275 with this suggestion; Step 1, making SURE the batteries are good. Then, position the camera with the lens pointed up or down (depending on stuck lens position, USE GRAVITY AS YOUR FRIEND) and gently tap on the lens just as you turn on/off the camera. You may have to do this several times before the camera will close the lens. From my research this camera has a faulty mechanism for the lens which causes the software to recognize a lens failure thus shutting down the camera. Poor designed lens mechanism! I now am using my camera again, but regularly have to remember to allow gravity to assist in lens opening (turning on) and lens closing (turning off) as well as occasionally giving it a light tap or in extreme cases lightly assisting the lens opening/closing. Hope that helps! Oh and I don't suggest buying another Kodak camera!

I have same problem. I turn on the camera you hear it trying to come on, shows display pic for like 3 seconds and then shuts down. If I could get the lens to retract I am sure the camera would work.

Camera beeps loud 3 times and shuts right off!!

sounds like a lens error, does the lens extend or retract? You probably have to get the lens back on track, use gentle pressure wiht the camera face down on a towel covered table and turn on to see if the camera tries to retract the lens. I really dislike these types of cameras that extend the lens everytime, if it turns on in your pocket, your doomed!
