Sill I would check the quality of your batteries. If you have a multimeter, you can do it yourself. My Kodak KLIC-5001 batteries, I bought in 2005 are still working. Three months ago I charged them the last time and the now still give more than 4,0 Volt. The print on the batteries is 3,7 volt. So if your battery is only just under 3,7 volt, but I think it will be more than one volt below, after they just have been charged, the are no good at all. If you don't have a multimeter, ask the people you know if someone has one. Also check is everything in de camera is clean and shiny and no debris is in the battery compartment. Check this with a magnifying glass, because the smallest spec of dust cab be a culprit when right on one of the contacts.

SOURCE: camera lens is stuck out and wont retract. Camera

Your camera has a lens error, this is such a common fault that I hope you don't mind me pasting my stock generic answer below. No point in reinventing the wheel!

Stuck lenses are probably the most common reason that compact digital cameras get thrown away, but there's a fair chance of recovering use of your camera again

The fault is commonly caused by dirt or grit blocking the mechanism, or due to it having suffered a recent fall. Another common cause is that the camera was in a pocket or bag and the power button accidentally activated and tried to open the lens against resistance. The mechanism may have simply become dislodged or there may be parts which have broken.

If your camera is still under warranty and has definitely not been subject to misuse then contact the Kodak service department in your country to find out about a free repair. If the warranty has expired though a professional repair will far exceed the cost of replacing your camera. You will therefore have nothing to lose by trying to fix this yourself.

Please click here and you will be taken to an excellent article provided by the Camera Repair website. For the most part, you'll be guided on how to physically manipulate your camera to try and clear the fault. Although the article mentions Canon a few times, the advice applies equally to all cameras with lens errors and is not model-specific.

If the link doesn't work then cut and paste the following address into your browser:-

Hello

The problem is that the lens has become stuck in the barrel. 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.

You can also have a look at THIS link.

Hope the advise is useful. please do not hesitate to let me know if you need any further assistance. Also, please be so kind to let me know if you found this helpful.

Regards
Andrea

My kodak easysharem575 wont work unless it is pluggedin even thouh i charged it


Still my guess is your battery is dead. There must be a reason you never get any guaranty on a battery. I do have two Kodak batteries KLIC-5001 from 2005. Both working as if they were new. But I also had to trow away (chemical waste) lots of NiMH rechargeable batteries, before they were one year old. From a very good brand. They never survived more than 25 charge cycles.
It could be, the contacts of your battery or the contacts in the battery holder of your camera are dirty or oxidised. Make sure the contacts are clean and shiny. Don't clean with a sharp tool. Just a dry cloth. I once found a little paper in the battery compartment, that disabled my camera for quite a while.

Kodak easyshare won't work unless plugged into charger


Hello Pam, You have either a faulty contact for the battery or your battery is suffering from age. After time these camera batteries lose their capacity. Try a new fully charged battery.

7 days ago i took my battery off to charge my camera and its fully chrged i put it back onto the camera and it just wont start up. I bought another battery and fully charged it aso and it wont turn on!...


Please make sure that the battery is clean and also the terminals within are clean. If you had been using the camera prior to the charging then the camera must work unless if the battery was spoiled by wrong charging. If you can use a multimeter to check the voltage which must be as specified on the battery label. Now make sure that the battery gets good contacts into the camera when inserted. If this wont work then it possible that there are errors within the camera and you need help from the nearest Nikon center.click the link below

Camera won't turn on.


Make sure the battery contacts are clean. The rechargable batteries looses their charge even when they are not in use. It is important to fully charge the first time the rechargable batteries.
