Hi there.

First and foremost, 95 percent of the problems with the lens being stuck in or out is dirt, grit, or sand in the lens mechanism. The rest is either, the pins are out of alignment, or in extreme cases it's a problem on the circuit board ie. power.

If you keep your camera in a case, that is what does it. Cases protect your camera as well as provide a place for dirt to accumulate. Eventually, the dirt works it's way into the space between the lens and the camera, or worse, into a cog that moves the lens. Try to blow out the obstruction with an air compressor. Put the nozzle of the compressor to the camera in the space between the lens and the camera. Blow it out real good and see if that fixes it.

I have more fixes, but they require extreme measures and should only be tried if your at your wits end, and ready to trash the camera. Let me know with a comment.

My kodak z712 is won't turn on. New batteries. The lens extends and then goes right back and off


You say new batteries - does that include the tiny ones, that keep the clock and other internal functions going? If not, check those, too. They are usually located in a different place than the larger batteries.
Also, make sure you put the new batteries in, in the right order.

How do I set the hpphotosmart 735 to display the date on photos?


The date and time (and a lot more) are stored with every picture in its EXIF metadata. Any photo viewing/editing program should be able to display this data. To print this data, please consult the documentation for whatever program you're using to print your pictures. Depending on the program and printer you may print the date on the image, in the margins, or on the back.

Camera comes on then turns right back off


use NIMH batt. NIMH gives you 1.2 power good for camera
ALCALINE & NICD gives 1.5 v which is bad and will discharge soon.
so use NIMH 2500 / 3200

Camera immediate shuts off after turning it on


try using lithium or nimh rechargeable batteries. I had the same problem and switched out the batteries and put in eveready nimh batteries and it works fine now. Guess the old cheap ones weren't doing the job. And they were brand new batteries.

Blurry photo's . autofocus not working?


Make sure the lens is clean. Soft spectacle cloth nothing harsh Check the you have not got it set to Macro. Make sure you are not holding the camera in such a way that the focus window is obscured by your finger, If all that checks out HP technical Support for further advice.
