    I've had my camera 3 months now, and had no problems with it... until I came back from holiday and turned it on. Except it doesn't turn on for more than just a second. The lens comes out, and the screen at the back comes on. Then the screen retracts and the camera turns off. I've recharged the batteries and it's made no difference... help!

    I tried to turn mine on and it turns off right after the lens extends, shutter opens, and KODAK welcome screen shows, then goes black, and everything closes and it turns off... I turned it on today and it said "Your memory card needs to be formatted" but I had to transfer pics still so I went home and put them on my computer, then formatted the memory card. The stupid thing still wont turn on!!! Ugh!!!

    camera turns, lens extends and the welcome screen shows on the display for like 1 sec, and then it shuts off. I bought a new battery and it still does it.

    When I push the on/off button the screen lights up and the lens extends, then the screen goes black and the lens goes back in.  It happened once before and after letting it sit for a few months it fixed itself, but last night it stopped working again.

Hi, here is whats going on, if your M763 is powering on for 2 secs and the lense opens up then go's right back in, there is a 90% chance you got sand in the unit from say the beach ?

here is a test , when you press the power buttion watch the lense you will notice that the bigger part rotates as it comes out, what you want to do is give it a little help Lightly rotate it abit more just at the point where it normaly stops and go's back in, the cam will prob stay on and work like normal.

now the hard part 2 things to try, a can of AIR from walmarts try to blow out and sand thats around the rings, i did this and have fixed about 20 of these's now, on the others you will need to take it apart and clean the gears and mech of the lense housing then put it all back together.

hope this helps

Yes you are. My wife denied that she dropped in the sand but I found a list of photos that she wanted to print on a post-it paper in the cover and it had sand all over the sticky part. Used the pressure air spray to clean the rings and it is back to life. Well It worked but there was some problem during zoom in&out, so I spray the rings while zooming and out and that cleaned it. I hope I don't have to open it to clean the mechanism. Thank you.

Have you checked your batteries? Try new ones or fully charged ones and then let me know if the problem still persists.

Kodak camera dropped lens cockeyed stuck open

Lens errors are fairly common. Usually it's sand or grit interfering with the lens extension mechanism. Or the camera's been dropped with the lens extended. Or the camera has been powered on, but the lens had been blocked preventing its extension. Or the battery ran down with the lens extended ...

Here's some things that you can do to try to correct it. They only seem to work for less than 50% of the lens errors, but if the camera is out of warranty, they're worth a try:
