Camera wont stay on, lense opens and the powers off

I have a Kodak af 3x 8.2 mega pixel camera. it is fully charged but when i turn it on, the lens comes out and then goes back in and powers off. I know it is fully charged because when I go to favorites, it will stay on and I can view everything in the memory.
Any ideas

Just about all electronic devices made now go through a self diagnostic phase before they power completely up. It comes on at low power and checks every circuit in the device and if it finds something wrong it immediately shuts down to prevent damage to the other circuits. That sounds like what is happening to your Camera. Although I am not familiar with your camera I am very familiar with Electronics in general. I would look first at my batteries and the battery compartment. Any broken or misaligned pieces in the battery compartment or perhaps bad batteries. If you can find nothing there and it is new return it. If none of the above applies you might try going on the internet and entering your make, model, etc of your camera and get the factory web site. Don't pay for technical help, it's a waste of money because you probably know more about it than the so called tech you're paying. Anyway, usually there is pages that other people have submitted problems with the same camera on and I'm pretty sure others like yours have had the same problem and usually someone else has discovered the root of the problem and submitted a solution. It could be something minor or something major but being a Camera the electronics will be confined to a small Microprocessor and in what is called a 'Flat Pack'. This is a SMD [Surface Mount Device] and will require a new board. If it's used try some of the stores on the internet that might handle items like it that are used and for parts. I mention this last but again if used, contact the manufacturer directly, a lot of times they may have you send it in and they will fix it for little to nothing. Act disappointed and brag on their product and maybe they will send you a new one. It has happened, they want to keep a good reputation and they will respond to customers who contact them directly. I hope this helps, I know this is what I would do if it were mine. If I can be of any other assistance please feel free to contact me, I do this to help others and I am willing to stay with someone until their problem is solved.Gillight

If the camera has recently been dropped it may have lens damage that is preventing it from powering up. If it hasn't been dropped, your problem may be due to weak/worn out batteries or corrosion on the battery contacts inside the camera which can prevent the full power of the batteries from flowing into the camera. Viewing pics takes much less power than zooming or taking photos, so the actual state of the batteries can be elusive. Try this free fix before you do anything else: remove the batteries and wipe the camera contacts firmly with a dry cloth (heavy corrosion may require cleaning with a wire brush, steel wool, or sandpaper). Remove any residue that may have fallen into the battery compartment during cleaning, then wipe both ends of the batteries, place them back in the camera and give them a good charge (assuming that you're using rechargeable batteries). This cleaning clears the problem about 90% of the time. If it doesn't work for you, your batteries may need to be replaced, or the camera may have a problem that requires professional repair.

My kodak af 3x is frozen the lens wont close and it wont turn on. The light is constantly flashing green. It was working fine and then went black and is frozen.


First you should take out the battery. Then give it a few seconds and reinsert the battery. Make sure there is enough power in the battery.
The camera should start from scratch. (Cold boot) and it should detect the lens is out. Then it should retract.
If there is a visible defect on the outside of the lens perhaps it won't work.
On the other hand, if the lens stays out, it could be there is a defect on the inside of the camera. Something mechanical in the lens barrel, something electrical like a bad connection off a (flat)cable, or just the electronics.
If the error comes back, you should visit a service centre.

My camera turns off with the lens half way in, and when i try to turn it on it makes a beeping sound and the red light flashes . the screen stays blank/black, whats the problem how can i fix it??????


Hi, it could be that the lens got some dust or even sand particles between the lens covers. You might need to take it in to your local camera repair shop for a more detailed answer, but I had the same issue with my lens cover that only closed half.

Hope this helps.

Regards

My lense will not open anymore?


I assume that there is no power on the camera when the lens gets stuck. Please try the following: 1. Clean the battery contacts. a. Remove the battery/batteries and the memory card from your camera, then wipe the battery contacts with a soft, clean cloth. b. Reinstall the battery/batteries into your camera. Please make sure that you are installing a fresh/ fully charged battery c. Turn the camera on. 2. Without the memory card, turn your camera on. (If it works then it?s your memory card that is faulty) 3. Please test with the a different battery If you do not have access to another battery Try these steps instead: Please take the battery out of the camera. b. Insert the charger into the unit from the main socket and turn the camera on. If the camera works you will need to replace the battery. If you camera doesn?t switch on you will need to order a no power repair with KODAK or a new cable. In order to organise your repair or Trade up please Contact KODAK: http://www.kodak.com/eknec/PageQuerier.jhtml?pq-path=14563&pq-locale=en_US&_requestid=3490

My camera shuts off when I my zoom is nearly halfway through


Make sure your batter is fully charged, and is not bad. This kind of reaction can happen with a weak battery or partly charged.
If that is not it, then the camera needs repair.
