CAMERA WILL NOT TURN ON

Everytime I turn on the camera, the lens comes out but after a second the lens retracts and the green light below the shutter button flashes. Can you help?

    I have the exact same problem too, although I tried pressing the shutter button and the on/off button and it doesnt do anything other then extend and go half way back in again. I can't find anywhere on the net how to reset it, theres got to be a way?
    Only thing I've found is that if you press the menu button and on/off it says ver 1.01 on the screen!

    I have the same problem, think that it's related to formatting a 4GB SD card with the OS only supports 2GB... camera has never acted the same since... I've been putting up with this for 2 years, and am ready to send the unit back to casio, and if it's not resolved switch brands. Too many people are having this same problem....

I had exactly the same problem I seem to have solved it by holding down the shutter button and then pressing the on/off button. It powered up and the lens stayed out. It was not auto focusing, so I placed it into manual focus and ran it back and forth in manual focus mode. (The circular button on the back adjusts manual focus by pressing it to the right or left) I suspect it's part of the start up self test that checks to see if the auto focus system is working, if it fails it shuts off. I think I stumbled onto a override of sorts by the button combination. Running the manual focus seemed to help. I do have a small black area in the upper right of the screen that gets no light - a dark spot. I store the camera in my pocket, I wonder if some pocket fuzz got into the camera somehow...

Turns on for 1/2 second and turns off


It sounds like the focus element inside the lens is stuck. This is usually either due to an impact knocking the elements out of alignment, or to sand/debris entering the focus motor's gear drive and preventing it from rotating. The buzzing sound you hear is the focus motor attempting to rotate, but buzzing up against some obstruction. When the lens extends, you hear a buzzing sound, and then the lens retracts - this is usually the cause of the issue. Unfortunately there is not much you can do externally to fix this problem. The camera will need to be taken apart and repaired by a professional or by the manufacturer. David Millier http://advancecamera.com/repair

hi,
your camera needs cleaning of lens and lens shutter; because some time dust particles gose inside and effect the alignment of lens and cause camera not working.

please give me good rating if the solution works
Thanks for using FixYa.

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
