Re: Lens not moving

Send to the service center, this is probably related to the lenses drive train step motor or the step motor position sensor. If it does not work, buy a S3. Good luck.

My kodak easy share cameras zoom lens is not retracting so the camera is not turning on

When a lens got stuck, by whatever reason, the camera shuts down to prevent further damage to the lens construction. If you can't move the lens at all. PLEASE DON'T APPLAY ANY FORCE TO THE LENS, just feel, try to find out what is holding the lens. If you can't see anything, the defect can be on the inside. This can't be changed easy. I don't believe in shock therapy, because you could help the lens to move once, but when something is wrong, it will happen again and the damage will add up.
But perhaps your camera is not turning on and that is why the lens does not move?
Did you try recharging the battery? And check if the battery has enough power?
Try that first.

I turned on my f410 camera but the lens does not extend out at all

The gear linkage in the lens has more than likely seized, you will need a specialist to handle the repair, but before you proceed ask for a estimate.

The lens can move in and out in straight line. If, due to the hit the lens casing got bent then it will stop moving. The glass may be fine but the casing seems to have taken a dent and is touching the sides somewhere. And to zoom in or out the lens have to move in and out. Try to get the lens in the middle of the lens well. Try to pull it out when powering on.

Lens is stuck out

Chanches are the lens received impact damage or there is some dirt, liquid like pop that is blocking your lens from moving. Try moving the lens and see if this will dislodge the lens. View the lens from top and sides, if it is sitting on an angle it has received impact damage.
