Question about Cameras

2 Answers

I have a Z1275 digital camera. I have new batteries in it. When I turn it on the blue light lights up, a green light blinks above the display, and the zoom lens moves outward but the display never lights up and the camera turns it'self back off.

    I'm not aware of any unit batteries other than the 2 - AA batteries I have replaced with new ones. The camera also does not have a memory card installed at this time. I haven't seen any manual in the box with the camera as it was given to me used so I'm not familiar with restoring factory defaults. I have now noticed that it will download pictures to my computer. Appearantly camera can store some pictures without memory card installed but I still have no display and it won't take pictures or stay turned on for very long.

    The Kodak z1275 camera I have will not stay turned on for very long nor will the display illuminate. It also will not take pictures. The lens will move out and back in on power up but that's all. The camera was given to me used and functioning and without an instruction manual. When I connect the USB to my computer it will download what pictures are stored within the camera's memory - the camera does not have a memory card installed at this time. The first advice I received was to remove unit battery and reinstall without memory card installed. I don't know of a "unit" battery except for the 2-AA batteries in the camera which I have replaced with brand new ones - twice. My second advice was to restore factory default settings but I don't know how to do this especially without a display to veiw the procedure. Is it possible to restore factory defaults without a display or is there anything else you can suggest that I do to restore camera operation?

Hi,


This usually happens if your camera has been exposed to liquid.If yes, contact Kodak's authorized service centre.If not,Then,

  1. Turn off your camera.
  2. Remove the batteries from your camera.
  3. Visit the Choosing the Right Battery for Your Digital Camera Web page, and follow the on-screen instructions to verify that you are using the correct type of batteries.
  4. Install a set of new or fully charged batteries into your camera.
  5. Turn on your camera.
  6. Take a picture.
If that would not solve the problem,

Do you have a Kodak EasyShare camera dock for your camera?

Test your camera with the camera dock.
  1. Turn off your camera.
  2. Remove the batteries from the camera.
  3. Set your camera onto the camera dock.
  4. Turn on your camera.
If that would not work, contact Kodak's authorized service centre.

If you do not have easy share camera dock,

  1. Turn off your camera and remove it from the accessory.
  2. Wipe the battery contacts with a soft, clean cloth and reinstall the batteries into the camera.
  3. Turn on your camera.
If no, Contact Kodak's authorized service centre. It would be a major internal harwdware fault.

Hi there,

you may try to do the FF:

  • try to remove the unit battery for a while
  • remove the unit memory card.
  • put back the unit battery w/out the memory card.
  • if the problem is still there, do resetting the unit to its factory default settings.
Just let me know

Wont turn on, new batteries, green light just blinks.


Make sure you are using the correct batteries, and that they are installed correctly. Some cameras require more powerful kinds of batteries and will not work with the cheaper kinds.
A blinking light can mean something is wrong with the power, not enough or something else.
If you have a power adapter or can get one, you may try that, to see if the camera will work without batteries. If it does, then some problem exists in the battery circuit.

Kodak Easy Share Z1275 stuck lens


**** a very common problem with most cameras. There hasn't been much of a solution for this problem except to try to wiggle the lens zoom while pushing and holding the power button.
Also make sure you have brand new batteries installed. Even the slightest dead battery will cause a problem.

Camera does not respond when turned on or when plugged in to recharge.


I followed the advice of my Fixya adviser--remove the battery for 3 minutes then plug the USB cable into a different port on my computer and plus in the camera. I did that and turned the camera on as advised but the green light still did not blink. The adviser did not respond when I asked what to do next so I disconnected the camera from the computer and plugged it into the charger. This time the first blue light started blinking (nothing happened when I tried it before following the Fixya advice). I left the camera to charge all night and eventually, after about 12 hours, it did.
Seems O.K. now.

Kodak Easy Share Z1275 stuck lens


I have a Kodak 1275. Green light would go on the off and lens was stuck open. Now for solution that worked for me. Get a can of compressed air, like what you use for computer keyboards. Blow the compressed air all around your stuck open lens, not to fast and switch directions of where you blow air around stuck opened lens. Make sure batteries are fresh and fully charged. Tap your camera against the palm of your hand twice, not to hard or you may damage instead of jarring lens lose. Next lay your camera on a table lens facing up, push power button on so camera will try to auto focus and lens should reseat itself and lens should move freely. It doesn`t have to look dirty or dusty, little tiny particles can cause the lens to get stuck and shut off fast because it is a safety feature. If this does not work try plugging your camera into computer so the lcd screen does not try to go on , thus giving even more power to get your lens moving . Do not try to force it closed by pushing or twisting with your hand or you may cause damage that will cost as much as the camera to fix.
