    I have the same problem. I was using the camera to upload my pics to my computer, then unplugged it from the usb cord and the lens would not retract. I waited a few minutes and still the same problem. Called Kodak and they told me to fully charge it for three hours. I did that and the lens still did not retract. The little green light just kept blinking and the camera would not turn on when i pressed the power button. Ultimately i ended up breaking it because i pulled on the lens too hard and the front came off. Have to buy a new camera, and i definitely will not beb uying a kodak anytime soon. By the way i had the m863 model.

    dont think your camera is broken just because the front part of the lens has come off, got my camera to retract lens and work for a bit by slightly rotating the lens. .the front part can detach and you can re attach it by lining up the pins so they go back into the slots..

    unfortunitly when i use the zoom i end up with the same problem for lens not retracting and wont turn on. .

Here's what I did...Mine had the lens stuck out and would not power on. Just a green blinking for a second or two. Well, I tried twisting the lens ring closest to the camera while hitting the power button. It's kinda tricky to do...BUT, just keep at it. Mine was a $1 resale shop "find" and now it works. This worked for me. Maybe it will help you!

Please help me in my kodak digicam, every time i turn it on , the digicam is automatically shutdown.... please help me


Make sure your battery is fully charged, clean the contacts on the batteries and inside the camera
If that doesn't work, try the suggestions on this site:
http://camerarepair.blogspot.com/2007/11/simple-fix-for-dead-cameras-that-wont.html.
If none of those suggestions work, it could be a jammed lens. Try these steps:

Even though the web page is titled "lens errors", it applies to stuck lens, also.
Good luck, hope this helps, and please rate this answer if it helped you.

When I turned off my Kodak M863 the lens did not retract and now the camera will not turn on.


Hello

The problem is that the lens has become stuck in the barrel after dropping it. There are some DIY solutions you could try, but the probability is that you will have to get it fixed by a professional.

Use these at own risk as it may further damage the camera.

Firstly , try connecting your ac adapter or usb cable.

Try holding the shutter button while switching on the camera.

Look at the lens , and if some of the lens 'circles' is misaligned or not concentric then try wiggling it (while holding camera lens down).

Try gently pushing or pulling the lens when it extends but this is risky as it may cause the lens barrel to slip out of its guidance system.

Another way to do this is to place the camera lens down on a hard surface and then power it up. Be sure to use a soft cloth or something similar as to not scratch your lens or casing. Let the lens push the camera up and down a few times and sometimes the little resistance provided by the camera is enough to get things going again.

Try hitting your camera near the lens on the body with the soft tissue on the palm of your hand.

Other than that , I would take the camera to a repair center for a evaluation to see if it would cost more to repair than to replace the camera.

If it is still under warranty I would suggest you take it in before trying any of these steps and remove any off-brand batteries or accessories as some stores are really fussy about warranty repairs on camera's with non-brand accessories.

Hope the advise is useful.

Regards
Andrea

M863 lens extends and then immediately retracts


Kodak Easyshare cameras use Li ion batteries, as recommended by the manufacturer, which have higher voltages but not necessarily higher amp hours per battery pack.

When I first bought my 14.1 megapixel camera from Kodak, I tried various batteries, including Alkaline, Ni MH, and they didn't work very long before needing replacement or recharging.

This is because the voltage isn't enough on other batteries.

I do not understand why they make it this way, because it fooled me a lot. I thought that since it had a AA format that it would be alright to use AA batteries of any type in the camera. But, this is not so, in my experience.

Good luck getting your camera to work with new Li Ion Batteries.
Note: if the Li Ion batteries do not work, then there is something wrong internally with your camera.

Contact kodak.com to see if it is economically repairable.

Thanks for asking a question on Fixya.com.

Clean the contacts inside the battery compartment with a cotton swab "dampened" with rubbing alcohol. Do the same to the battery and the charger.

Camera wont Turn On


Fixing your problem could be as simple as cleaning the battery contacts in the camera, or the solution could be a lot more complex and expensive. Here's a link to the Kodak Help Center - it provides a simple Q&A format to diagnose the problem and propose a solution.
