Question about Kodak EasyShare P850 Digital Camera
Have recently encountered a problem with my P850. It will hesitate longer than normal to turn on. Lens does not extend; and when it does sometimes it will retract lens and turn itself off while the switch is still on and then cycle back on again. At first I thought it might be a low battery situation but it still does it with a full charge. It is an intermittent problem that is driving me nuts(short trip) Please give me some clues ASAP I'm in Japan and want as many photo op's as possible. The camera takes awesome pictures
I have a very similar problem possibly the same one, what the problem is with mine is the actual ON-OFF-Favorites ring you use to turn the camera on and off with is loose and so if I turn the switch too far ON it actually turns off and anytime I brush or move the outer ring (which is hard not to do when the shutter button is in the middle of it) the camera turns off and on again. I sent mine to a KODAK authorized repair center and there estimate was an outrageous $144 to and I quote "replace switch board / take board". I hope you have better luck (or are still under warranty) than I did.
Hope I could be of some assistance,

The lens error is due to failure of the lens control system. You can remove battery and card replace battery and while switching on tap the lens hood on your hands so as to disengage any dirt or mechanism being struck.
It is also possible that the mechansim is struck .Use some high pressure jet air to blow between the lens to dislodge any sand particles struck inside. If none of these works then you can think of taking consensus with the service centre.
get estimate before you decide. It will be good to have it checked at any camera/Kodak service as you do not have to run around for spares.
