Question about Kodak EasyShare Z740 Digital Camera
I think the camera is going into standby or power-saver or something. I turn it on , then the lens should expand, that doesn't happen , but right after that it turns itself off. I have checked the batteries, through various tests and am satisfied that they are working fine.Help
Thank YOU for responding. My husband is good at taking things apart and reassembling them. He asked how do you "free the lens mechanism?" And how did you know that was the problem?
Thank you for your time

It sounds like the lens is jammed. This happened to mine about 4 days after I got it. It was a bad mix of my carelessness and my sons. Anyway, I never buy extended warranties and it probably wouldn't have covered it anyway. I decided that repairs at a camera shop would be close to or more that it cost. Either way, it was going to be a loss, so I took it apart carefully and freed the lens mechanism up myself. It worked and the camera still takes great pictures two years later!!! I would only suggest this if you are competent with taking things apart and reassembling them. Good Luck!!!

The lens mechanism is damaged- perhaps through a bump or a drop. Either way a repair is not likely to be economic. Check out Kodak Customer Support especially if it is a young camera- but I guess it will be time for a new camera
