Larry389's so-called solution is not a solution... just an opinion to which each individual is entitled... even when not correct! I've used a Zeika Opt. Co. Power Zoom Binocular No.25361 for over 25 years since inheriting them from my father who purchased them in early 1970. To say the least, treated carefully and with respect for the delicate instrument that they are, they've been wonderful and still work perfectly fine. Perhaps Larry's experience is based upon handling them like junk and, therefore, reaping what he has sewn.

I want to back up what Whrinnow said. I have a pair of working Zeika Power Zoom binoculars. I have noticed that inside the battery compartment the spring-loaded metal contact plates can develop a whitish crud that must be removed with a Q-tip and rubbing alcohol before the batteries will power the little motor.

Chances are they are bound up for good. everyone thinks zoom is good. it is not. you are better off with a standard good bino that you can hold steady in your hands. do not buy zoom again they are all junk..to many moving parts that will never be in alignment, made to be thrown away, so throw away

Does this camera operate on regular AA bateries. Put 2 brand new ones in and it will not power up. The manual says Kodak does not "support" Alkaline batteries....

chrissy66 (12/10/2007)reply to this comment (by James DeRuvo - 12/12/2007)Sounds to me like your lens may have come out of alignment. Was it dropped recently? Since your camera is still under warranty, the best thing you can do is have Kodak should fix it. If your camera is out of warranty, or if Kodak refuses to repair it for free, the one thing you can try is to try resetting the camera.

Kodak is also of the opinion that lens errors also occur when you use batteries not recommended by Kodak.

I recently chatted with a kodak specialist about this issue and he recommends changing your batteries to NiMh rechargeable batteries. These are the batteries that the camera is designed to use and using other types - like alkalines, can often cause the lens error to occur. If that doesn't work, then the camera indeed does need repair.

Rechargeable Ni-MH Batteries (AA Size): These Ni-MH AA batteries last up to twice as long as alkaline batteries when used in your Digital Camera - and you can recharge them up to 1000 times in our rapid charger.

Oxy-Alkaline Digital Camera Battery (AA Size).



CRV3 Lithium Batteries: A non-rechargeable battery designed specifically for today's feature-rich cameras. This battery is the obvious choice for speed performance, and long life. It delivers faster flash recycle times and lasts up to 10% longer than our previous design!



Ni-MH Rechargeable Battery Pack: Provides exceptional capacity with its 2.5 hour fast charge cycle time; can be recharged up to 1000 times in the EasyShare Camera Dock or EasyShare Rapid Charger,

When i push the on/off button on my camera, the lens will open and the camera wil either not come on or come on for a second then turnoff- but the lens will stay open? some times i will have to enter in...


First, the battery should be charged fully, and it should be a LiIon battery pack from Kodak, not alkaline AA or NiMH AA.

Also, if it is losing the date, there is sometimes an internal battery that has to be changed at the factory for $80 or so.

That's the way my 14.1 Megapixel camera is.

One can check with Kodak.com to make sure though:

Where's the battery????


If you consider the button and wheel side to be the front -
There is a silver oval button at the back of the mouse. Press it and the top of the mouse just behind the mouse buttons will pop open.
It takes 1 AA battery with the negative side going to the front.

How do you change the batterys in hasbro cosmic catch ball game


The "push" button has a small hole on either side. there is a small screw at the bottom of each hole. Use a small philips head screwdriver. Once you have loosened the screws, this whole "block" of foam will come out of the ball and you will see the battery compartment.

Tasco OS36 Binoculars battery replacement


The screw you removed holds the battery cover in place. The cover is roughly rectangular with rounded corners. Once the screw is out, gently insert a sharp blade into the hairline crack between the cover and the binocular body and pry the cover off. The two watch batteries will be obvious.
