Question about Kodak EASYSHARE V1253 Digital Camera
Hello, I need help with my camera. Lately, the camera works fine and everything, but when I zoom in or out with it, when the lens moves, it makes some sort of mechanical noise as if it's struggling to perform the operation even though it still performs it? I don't know what to do, it started earlier when my camera got stuck and I had to forcibly (but not roughly) push back the lens into its place. (I was in line for a book signing and I didn't have time for this.) Please help, it is very annoying, especially when I'd like to record video. Thanks
This is a motor drive problem, it requires repairs soon as possible before any more damage is done.

hi...The transmission system that moves the lens in and out has a problem with it's gears. There is most likely a gear or an actuator that has fallen out of alignment and is getting stuck at a certain point as the lens comes in/out.There is some disturbacnce of the lens arrangement that is preventing the lens from coming in/out.
Any of these symptoms above could trigger the camera to shut itself off to protect itself from further damage.
thank u rate me!!!

SOURCE: Clicking noise when camera is on
I know this question is almost a year old, but thought I'd post a solution for those using Google Search to try and solve this problem. In the "menu" simply scroll to the "AF Control (Video)" option and change "Continuous AF" to "Single AF" and that should solve this issue.

Your camera has a lens error, this
is such a common fault that I hope you don't mind me pasting my stock
generic answer below. No point in reinventing the wheel!
Stuck lenses are probably the most common reason that compact digital cameras get thrown away, but there's a fair chance of recovering use of your camera again
The fault is commonly caused by dirt or grit blocking the mechanism, or due to it having suffered a recent fall. Another common cause is that the camera was in a pocket or bag and the power button accidentally activated and tried to open the lens against resistance. The mechanism may have simply become dislodged or there may be parts which have broken.
If your camera is still under warranty and has definitely not been subject to misuse then contact the Kodak service department in your country to find out about a free repair. If the warranty has expired though a professional repair will far exceed the cost of replacing your camera. You will therefore have nothing to lose by trying to fix this yourself.
Please click here and you will be taken to an excellent article provided by the Camera Repair website. For the most part, you'll be guided on how to physically manipulate your camera to try and clear the fault. Although the article mentions Canon a few times, the advice applies equally to all cameras with lens errors and is not model-specific.
