I purchased my Kodak V1273 camera the day it came out. I recently tried turning the camera on, and it wouldn't. I tried charging it on the dock and by pluging it into the wall. Neither would work. I don't know if it's a problem with the camera or with the battery. Does anyone have any suggetions? thanks.
I have the same problem i complained to the kodak support team via official site and even got an automatic response that it was registed..but they are deliberately ignoring me i'm sure there are hundreds of v1273 customers out there who have the same problem...kodak doesn't seem to give a rat's *** also, i requested a firmware upgrade....perhaps that would fix all the bugs....what can i say...that's what i deserve for taking a chance and buying kodak and not canon.

Send it back to Kodak, these models are nothing but trouble, far to many customer complaints, Made in China and not made very well, not dependable, Try a better brand. Kodak has seen better days with their products. Buyer Beware
there is a broken part inside the lens. This is pretty complex to replace so my suggestion is to buy a used one off of eBay. sometimes you can find the same model camera on tehre with a broken lcd display and pick it up really cheap
Hi and Welcome to FixYa-
I have had the very same issue with my Z Series camera.
What I did to solve this:
1) Purchase a can of compressed air from any computer/office supply store
2) Prior to turning the camera on again, blow the compressed air around the lens opening (not the lens itself) where it extracts or sticks out from the camera. Blow the air in short bursts only, as prolonged bursts will turn the can freezing cold and impossible to hold after only a few seconds.
3) Try and turn the camera on again. If this succeeded, you are done! If not, read on....
4) This might sound crazy, but it worked for me: Hold the camera in one hand, with the lens side out and farthest from your palm.
5) "Smack" the camera, gently but firmly against your other hand (This might take 2 or 3 tries). This process will do one of two things: it will dislodge any large pieces of sand, dirt or general 'muck' that keeps the lens from extending when you power it on. It will also re-engage the zoom mechanism.
Good luck and let us know how it works.
If the camera has recently been dropped you may have lens damage that
is preventing it from powering up. If it hasn't been dropped your
may be due to weak/worn out batteries or corrosion on the battery
contacts inside the camera which can
prevent the full power of the batteries from flowing into the camera.
Try this free fix before you do anything else: remove the batteries and
wipe the camera contacts firmly with
a dry cloth (heavy corrosion may require cleaning with a wire brush,
steel wool, or sandpaper). Remove any residue that may have fallen into the battery compartment during cleaning, then wipe both ends of
the batteries and place them back in the camera and give them a full
charge (assuming that you are using rechargeable batteries). This
the problem about 90% of the time. If it doesn't work for you, your batteries may need to be replaced or the
camera may have
a problem that requires professional repair.
My kodaxs v1273 started work fine then as the mouths go on, i try to trun it on but it just tells me that the date needs resting so when i go to press the reste button it auto trues off, what up with that?
