Kodak easyshare CX7430

My easyshare kodak camera was dropped and the lens would not retract or fully extend. My husband opened the camera to fix it. He realigned the lens so that now it is retracted. However now when I turn on the camera I have a blue screen with the prompt "Date and time have been reset and two options 1. set date and time 2. Cancel. The ok button does nothing and I can't move down or up on the options.

Re: Kodak easyshare CX7430

My Kodak camere was really not dropped. I put in new batteries and the camera only gives me one shot and I have to turn it off and try again. I can plug the camera into a charge cord and I can take all the pictures I want. Is it possible the 2 batteries are not enough to power the camera

I had a friend that ran into the same problem, but his solution is not what I would recommend but it did work for him. He used sewing machine oil and applied a tiny amount less than a drop to the crevice of the camera body and the outer lens housing, his was stuck in the retracted position, and he got it going again without a problem.

Camera lens wont open or close after being dropped. it won't turn on and take pictures

Lens error is usually caused by mechanical faults concerning lens assembly. The lens cannot extend or retract fully, the error is detected and lens error is returned.
Sometimes this can be fixed playing with the lens during extraction or retraction to help the lens asset getting back to normal.
More often the camera lens must be disassembled and re-assembled by a technician to fix the problem.

Camera won't stay on

I may be able to help with your Kodak EasyShare Z740 that turns itself off.

It may be a 'lens extending' problem, or it might be fixed with a combination of button presses to reset it while turning it on.

Try these steps to fix your camera.

I hope that helps.
