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.

Hope the advise is useful. please do not hesitate to let me know if you need any further assistance.

Regards
Andrea

Dropped the camera, getting a lens error 115,0,0,212


Lens probably does not extend or retract because of a misaligned gear box. The lens can in about 50% of the cases be repaired without having to replace it. Try to return to manufacturer first. If you're out of warranty, there are third party place that fix them such as camera lens repairs. If you want to do it yourself, there are also free camera repair guide websites that show you how to replace the lens, the replacement part is usually available on ebay.

The lens unit needs to be serviced, possibly marginal repair, so if you look at the lens and it seems to be crooked, you could try GENTLY straightening it , but this may make it WORSE! Do not push it in, try to pull out the side that is already pushed in, if you get what I mean.
Otherwise take it to a repairer.

Kodak EasyShare MD853 Lens Error 1of,1,0,0


It means you did the same thing i did and bought a cheap piece of trash camera. Apparently, All of their cameras have this problem, mine only lasted 3 months before it started giving me problems. Mine is a Kodak C813 Easyshare. They are made with tiny cheap plastic gears inside and the teeth break off very easily. Mine has never been dropped or mistreated in any way. I hardly ever had a chance to use it. It is still under wartranty though and I am sending it back. Contact the company if yours is still under warranty.

Lens error 12 & 22


Our school uses this camera. It's reporting a lens error 12 and the lens does not extend. Bumping it did not work, nor does pulling the lens out with a fingernail.

One teacher said that another school had LUCK by installing a new battery pack. The old one might not hold enough power to fully boot up the camera, causing the lens error.

I have noticed that the battery does not hold a charge for any length of time. This will be our next approach.

Cameras that are dropped, banged or bumped are not covered by a warrantee, so beware.
