Question about Kodak EasyShare M1073 IS Digital Camera
I have recently been to a sand island and come back and my camera is not working i have tried turning it on and off many times but the digital zoom on the front wont stay open and it turns itself off everytime what shall i do how can i fix it?
Its possible that dirt, sand had got stuck between your lens barrel and the body and that why the lens is giving you problems.
You can try some of the following solutions to help you out:
1).Remove the batteries from the camera, wait a few minutes. Put a fully charged batteries back in and turn the camera on. if it doesnot work then,
2: Remove the batteries again, as also remove the memory card. Then install the newly charged batteries, when you turn it on it should come back to life.
3: Insert the cameras Audio/Video (AV) cable, and turn the camera on. Inserting this cable ensures that the camera's LCD screen remains off during the start process. Thus extra battery power is available to the camera's lens motor during start up. This extra power can be useful to overcome any grit or sand particles that may be jamming the lens.
4: Blow compressed air in the gaps around the lens barrels with the idea of blowing out any sand or grit that may be in there jamming the lens. Other variations include blowing with a hair dryer in “no heat” setting, or sucking the gaps with a vacuum
5: Repeatedly tap the padded/rubber usb cover with the intent of dislodging any particles that may be jamming the lens. Other variations include hitting a side of the camera against the palm of your hand. Dont try very hard please.
Try the above and let me if its any help.
If the above does not help. Then you would need to take it to the nearest service center.
