    Lens won't retract, but shutter won't open either. Sent it to be repaired. After less than 1 hour of use over a 6 monthe time period, it is doing this again.

    With fully charged batteries the camera drains the batteries after several hours when the camera is left off. If I remove the batteries they retain their charge until I put them back in the camera so I know it's not a problem caused by bad batteries. Also, whenever I reinstall the batteries, the camera requires the date and time to be reset. I'm wondering if some type of small internal battery for the camera has died and is pulling power from the AA's when installed. The camera should maintain the date and time when the batteries are changed. It seems like several people are having similar problems around the same time. Perhaps the lifespan of the internal power for the camera is expiring in this model around the same time?

    After replacing with new fully charged batteries, camera shows green light when turned on using power switch but no activity is observed. I cant turn the camera off by power switch. after some time camera gets turned off automatically.

    I have the same problem.  I've tried several times putting new batteries in but my camera won't start and the lens won't retract.  Please help!!!  I took my camera to the store where I bought it and their professional told me it was not able to be fixed.  Now I want to know why it won't work and where I can send it in case there is a way to fix it that the man I took mine to didn't know about.  I've read someone else's message saying he got his fixed but a short time afterwards, it stopped working again.  I bought my camera with a photo printer but I've never been able to use it.  I would very much like to know what to do.  americananne@hotmail.com

    I have exactly the same problem! Put in brand new charged batteries and they are dead within hours if left in the camera. Also get the date and time reset, so I was also wondering if the internal battery has had it. I actually found this post looking for a way to change the internal battery!! Andy

    I have the same problem, the fully charge battery drains in a week in the camera, and I have to reset the date/time any time when I change the batteries.

My camera will not stay on is off and stuck with lens out


If the lens doesn't retract on most digital camera the camera also will not turn ON. It is connection or wiring between camera power and camera lens.
What Kodak Rep will ask you to do are:
1. Remove the battery and the memory card of the camera
2. Check if your using a recommended battery and if its new or fully charge. batteries for Z1275 are Ni-MH rechargeable; CRV3 Lithium; 2AA Lithium
3. Insert the batteries back in the camera in correctly
4. Set the camera in Auto mode (its the camera icon on the dialing mode of the camera)
5. Try to turn it ON
If still will not turn ON and the lens will not retract
6. If your using a rechargeable battery Kodak Rep will ask you to charge the battery until its fully charge.
If your using a disposable battery they will ask you to try to use a new battery out from the box.
After all those steps still the camera failed to work, it will be send for repair. The number of the Kodak support line is 1 800 235 6325 (23KODAK)

Lens won't retract. Camera powers off immediately after powering on without retracting lens. New battery didn't help.


Are you using the recommnded battery KODAK Li-Ion Rechargeable Digital Camera Battery KLIC-7004

first you need to do make sure the battery is fully charged., now if you if this solution will not resolve the issue it means that the Gear Lens is defective thats why your Lens will not retract and camera will not stay On. you need to call kodak to send your camera for repair call toll free 1 800 235 6325., Gudluck!

E10 and s45 same problem


the batteries needed for the cameras are quite high powered

though the batteries show that they are fuly charged most times they have lost their actual capacity of power storage in them so not being able to supply enough to start the camera best way to test this is to start the camera on preview mode if this works then you will need to buy a new set of rechargable batteries, i would suggest to take batteries in the range of 2000MAh to 2500MAh and

the normal batteries will not be able to sustain long even for normal lens open and retract functions, instead of normal batteries try LR6 varieties (eg: Duracell, Energizer, etc)

Camera will not power on or off and battery is fully charged


The symptoms you describe sound very much like a failing battery. How old is your battery? Rechargeable batteries are only meant to last for a couple years, regardless of use.

WILL NOT POWER ON


Your camera is still under warranty. Recommend letting Canon try to correct this, instead of trying to fix this yourself.

Here's the support page for your camera:
http://www.usa.canon.com/consumer/controller?act=ModelInfoAct&tabact=SupportDetailTabAct&fcategoryid=221&modelid=14905

Or you can call them directly at 1 (800) 828-4040.

Camera wont turn on, intermittent red power coming on


This may or may not work (it's primarily a trick for certain Canon cameras with similar symptoms). Remove the cameras battery, then remove the memory card. Insert a BRAND NEW or fully charged rechargeable batteries. DO NOT insert the memory card. Instead, just turn on the camera. If the lens retracts, turn off the camera, insert the memory card, then restart the camera.

If this doesn't work, here are some other things to try. But don't get your hopes up, as they only seem to work for little less than half the cameras with similar problems:

Can view memory card but wont power up to take pics


Try using brand new fully charged rechargeable batteries like NiMH or NiCd. Also try viewing though the computer via USB.

Battery problem


It probably lacked the power to retract the lens. I'd start with recharging the battery and see if that corrects the problem.
