A stupid mistake and now my kodak easyshare dx6490 lens comes off


Hello, This happens quite often and the bad news is it is not worth the cost of repair,the good news is you can sell it on E-Bay for parts and by a good used one to replace it.If you buy a good used DX6490 you can still use your battery,charger,and other items from your old camera.
I have several very nice DX6490 units that I sell.
Best Regards, Russell hounddogellie@gmail.com

C875 lens won't retract


Camera (with new rechargable batteries) won't let the lens come out or if it does it instantly retracts.

Won't turn on light flashes green then flashes red then nothing else


This usually means weak batteries, the other possibility is the lens mechanism is faulty or stuck. These cameras will shut down if the lens cannot extend or retract. Sometimes you can coax the lens out with a little help by pulling gently on the lens with your fingers if it starts to come out, don't force it. If you have dropped the camera with the lens out, this can damage the mechanism to either work intermittently or not at all.

Lens jammed will not retract, canon pc1147 zoom


I have had the same issue were the lens would not retract. took it in for extended warranty work. lens now retracts but takes lousy pictures.

When I purchased this camera family members ran out and bought thiers shortly after I did. One by one the same issue has happend to their v1253's.

I dissmantled one and found that there is a tiny battery on the power board inside of the camera. apparently the tiny battery's life is about 1 1/2 years. This battery is not serviceable as it is welded in place. I am not one hundred percent sure if this is the cause but it makes sense.

It would be nice if kodak would own up to this issue and make good on repairs as they did with my kodak 5500 all-in-one printer and it's crappy print head. Kodak has sent me 4 print heads in the 2 years I have owned it.

I have 5 of the v1253's in my family and every one of the are dead. I would think a $250 product should last longer than 1 1/2 years.
hope this helps.

Kodak Z700


Hi,

Tentative solution:
I had the identical problem. I went as far as disassembling the camera ... not recommended.

Instead of fussing with the lens cover, I pressed on the lens assembly (gently), the lens retracted and the lens cover closed.

My camera works now. It will be my last Kodak.

Good Luck,
Mike

Kodak easy share z612 will not turn on to take a picture


When the battery dies, usually the camera will retract the lens if possible. If the battery is so dead the lens can not retract, I would recommend trying to charge or change the battery. Or try to turn the camera on, and then manually shutting it off if you can.

Stuck :(


My Kodak DX6440 did the same thing. After sending it to Kodak's third-party repair (as per Kodak), they called to say it was not fix-able. Kodak's response was "No parts available" and offered 10% off list price of a refurbished camera. ...Big sports ...Way to keep customer loyalty If you choose Kodak, the cameras are good but buy them knowing they are a disposable item.
