Question about Kodak EasyShare C330 Digital Camera
This is driving me nuts! Does anybody know how to fix this problem? I really need help! I've tried bumping it and replacing the battery...none of that has worked.
Would love an answer!
The movement of the lens is motor driven. When you turn the camera on,
the lens moves. The error 12, error 14, and error 22 refer to control
stages in the lens movement ( I think error 22 means the lens won't
retract). The lens housing and gear mechanism in this camera is
plastic. If there is dust, sand, or debris around the lens housing, it
may bind the lens when it trys to extend or retract. By banging it, you
might work the gears loose or dislodge whatever is binding the lens
(same with the "canned air" blowing out the dust). We've purchased a
bunch of these cameras for our electricians in the field. Several have
come back with this problem. I've taken the case off, and torn the lens
assembly apart, only to find the plastic gears have been "buggered up".
It's an inexpensive camera. Try to clean around the lens, give it a few
slaps, push/pull the lens.... but failing this fix, buy a new one.

Tips for a great answer:
I had an E61.00 error on my Sony DSC-t7 camera. I tried the bumping on hard surface . I bumped it bottom edge down at the lens end about five times with increasing hardness of bump and then turning off and on again after each try. After about five times E: 61.00 error had gone. I can hardly believe it.
It really did work.
