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!!!

My problem is that the lens stays open, all the lights flash, I hear a very low set of tones and then it shuts off. I recharged the batter and tried all the fixes except taking it apart


Sounds like a stuck lens. Happens to V1253 / V1233 often. These lens can't stand dust, dirt or sand. The lens has to be taken apart and cleaned. It's not very easy, also it involves some soldering. I suggest you give it to a local repair shop (if you think it's worth it). I could offer you a repair, but I'm in Germany.
I have worked at a Kodak service center as a technician.

The camera switches off immediatly after switching it on, an the lens is not closing anymore. Is there a way to reset the camera with a combination of the buttons?


Not really, but it's most likely a lens problem. Resetting wouldn't help anyways. I have repaired a lot of these V1253 / V1233 with such a problem. It has to be taken apart and cleaned. Sorry for the bad news. I have worked in a Kodak service center.

The lense pushes forward halfway when turned on


Hi!
I'm afraid you will have to give it away for a repair - it sounds like the lens get stuck in the halfway - could be dirt, sand or something in the reductor or the lens are damaged.
I work in a Kodak service center.

Hope this helps!

My kodak easyshare V1253 Powers up, then shuts off


You have damaged your lens. If the camera can not move the lens it goes through a built in diagnostics test and shuts down. Beyond repair as cost to replace is beyond the value of your camera.

Remove the batteries and clean the battery contacts inside the camera with a soft cloth (a heavy buildup on the contacts may require cleaning with a fine wire brush, steel wool, or sandpaper). Remove any residue that the cleaning leaves in the camera, and then reinstall the batteries. This clears most power-on problems, but if yours persists, check the Kodak troubleshooting guide at:

Lens jammed on a kodak v1253


I fixed my v1253 following these steps:
1. Pulled the battery when the lens starts to come out before it could power itself off.
2. Gently pull the telescope out until it clicks.
3. Use a fine tip paint brush to clear debris out of the cracks.
Camera works just fine now.

Lens jammed will not retract, canon pc1147 zoom


I have had the same issue were the lens would not retract. took it in for extended warranty work. lens now retracts but takes lousy pictures.

When I purchased this camera family members ran out and bought thiers shortly after I did. One by one the same issue has happend to their v1253's.

I dissmantled one and found that there is a tiny battery on the power board inside of the camera. apparently the tiny battery's life is about 1 1/2 years. This battery is not serviceable as it is welded in place. I am not one hundred percent sure if this is the cause but it makes sense.

It would be nice if kodak would own up to this issue and make good on repairs as they did with my kodak 5500 all-in-one printer and it's crappy print head. Kodak has sent me 4 print heads in the 2 years I have owned it.

I have 5 of the v1253's in my family and every one of the are dead. I would think a $250 product should last longer than 1 1/2 years.
hope this helps.
