    DO YOU THINK IT WOULD BE WORTH IT TO BRING IT INTO A SHOP TO FIX OR SHOULD I JUST GET A NEW ONE.

Oh yeah, it sure does sound like sand. Sure death to zoom lenses. Kodak will not cover this under warranty either. Unfortunately, Kodak will not sell parts to anyone so you are going to have to deal directly with them.

How to get Sand out of my Camera?


You should not open it. You should take it to a professional for repair. Sand is scratchy, the more you mess with it, the more scratches.

Kodak C330 [lens error 14]


Hi Jesse, thanks for coming to FixYa.

The problem your having is that sand and/or dirt gets in the lens mechanism of the camera. When the little cog inside gets sand in it, it prevents it from moving. It is what causes 95 percent of all lens errors. The other 5 are when the retaining pins get misaligned and don't go back in the holes. Mis aligned pins happen alot of times when you drop it with the lens extended, so let's go with the easy one first.

Take an air compressor (or borrow a friends) and put the nozzle up to the space in between the lens and and the camera. Blow it out real good. It may take a couple of tries, but it should free it up.

Let me know if that helped, and feel free to rate my answer.

Shuts off when i try to zoom.....


I was also having a similiar problem with my z1275 and tried the "vacuum" thing. BINGO! It worked, and I was about to send the camera back to Kodak for servicing. You saved me money.

What did I do?

I turned my vacuum on, stuck my lense into the vacuum tube, zoomed all they way IN and then turned the vacuum off. My camera now works perfectly.

Before using the vacuum, I was only able to zoom about 50% before the camera would turn off. Thanks for your help.

Does it need regular cleaning?


Hi,
'
Sand generally has no effect on the electronic side of the camera, however it will definitely can cause problems with the mechanical aspect of the camera such as the zoom lens. this can be removed with a can of compressed air.

Suntan lotion likewise should not be any problem except for smudges on the housing/casing and especially bad for the lens. Additionally, the lotion would help the sand adhere to crevices and nooks of the camera. Wiping should get you just fine.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Kodak C330 [lens error 14]


Hey Sarah, I'd say that up to 5 min ago, I was having the same problem. My camera (Kodak C330) had been giving me this Lens Error 14 for about a month and I hadn't been able to make it work. The first 2 times it did that, I turned it off and on again, but then it just would work anymore. I tried opening it but it wouldn't let me so I thought I was screwed.. until I found this forum where people seemed to think that banging on the bottom and pressing hard on the lens would fix the problem. I had nothing to lose so I tried and guess what: Now it's working fine again! I had taken it to the beach and I'm not sure if it's because I had gotten sand in it or water perhaps but in the user manual, it said that getting that error message after dropping it or getting it wet was voiding the warranty. So there. Hope that helps! ~Vero
