Question about Cameras

The lens opens then shuts again right away, and it is fully charged. I can review the pictures when I go under my favorites, but when I try to take a picture the camera shuts off right quick.

Hi there. Turn on. Before it beeps, take the battery's out. This may take some practice. Now us a Qtip almost soaked in rubbing alcohol and clean the outside edges of the lenses. Put battery's back in and cycle the camera on and off. I hope this works for you. It worked for me.
Thanks
Paul

Hi

the camera needs more power to take a picture as it has to operate the lenses, auto focus and and all the other parts moving or otherwise than to just display the images on the lcd....

i know this is frustrating but the problem lies with the batteries the actual power outout from your batteries has deteriorated

you may try new set of batteries or there is a slightly risky way of approach

take the NIMH batteries after they have been completly used and then from a power source of not more than 5V and upto 1MA connect the +e to the +e of the battery and -ve wire to the -ve of the battery and hold it for 15 to 20 secs and place it for charging do this for all the batteries and there is a fair chance of getting them back...

BUT BE VERY CAREFULL of the polarities on the batteries and the power source as if u connect them opposite u r gonna kill the batteries for good

cheers
pls rate if this was any help

Kodak EasyShare Z740 Turns Off Fix

Does your Kodak EasyShare Z740 Turns On Then Turns Off right away?
Does your Kodak EasyShare Z740 Turns Itself Off with new AA batteries in it?

Many of these Kodak EasyShare Z740 cameras that shuts off right away and will not stay on, will actually stay on if you select FAVORITES to view pictures, but just flash back and turn off if set to auto or camera mode. Try this.

If the lens cannot extend, the camera will turn itself off. You can try giving the camera a thump with the heel of your hand, but I would recommend servicing the camera rather than smashing a delicate digital instrument. After trying the steps below, a last chance alternative that works for some people is to grab and actually PULL the lens out as it tries to extend itself. Again, its delicate; if you can afford it, maybe pay for servicing before hitting and pulling on your camera.

However, before servicing your Kodak Z740 try this fix:

  1. Hold down the Time/Ascending Folder button (the button under OK on the circular panel)
  2. While holding that down, press and hold the ON/OFF button.
  3. The camera may turn itself on and stay on this time, acting normally again.

If this doesn't work for your try this:

  1. Hold down the '>' button (the one that brings you to picture review)
  2. While holding that down, press and hold the ON/OFF button.
  3. The camera may turn itself on and stay on this time, acting normally again.
If that doesn' t work, try again with the 'Trashcan' button, and ON/OFF button.

I hope that helps.

Will let me review pictures, but when I switch to take pictures it shuts off


Try to check if the memory is already full, delete some files before taking pictures again. or Try to check the battery if fully charged also, review the manual, you might have to review the settings of your camera

When I turn my camera on, it tries to adjust the lens and then it retracts. the screen says lens error.


This is a common problem for these pocket cameras with zoom lenses. It is usually a result of the camera being switched on while in a pocket or case or other place that restricts the lens from being able to be extended fully.

The camera does a sort of "self check" when turned on to make sure the pictures you take will be right. If it can't perform the test successfully, it shuts off and displays an error message.

Something is preventing the lens from running the self test completely. This could be a damaged mechanism (as a result of trying to open all the way earlier), or a simple "grain of sand" that has become caught between the lens barrel and camera body.

The camera will need to have the offending object removed / mechanism repaired to let the lens complete the self test before it can be used again. You might have some luck fully charging the batteries or or leave connected to a power source - and attempt to power up again. This is a "brute force" method - the fully charged batteries / power source my provide enough "oomph" for the lens to dislodge the object. Make sure the camera is pointed lens down - so it can fall out - rather than INTO the camera even further. You could try pulling the lens while powering up - but this could make things worse. If the camera is expendable, you could try that. If the camera is more than a couple / few years old, you might just want to simply buy a newer, more feature packed one instead of going the repair route - as this *can* be an fairly expensive repair give the cost of most mainstream cameras purchased a few years ago and the cost of them today.

If it is a dirt issue, it will likely NOT be covered under warranty. Of course, contacting the manufacturer and discussing the problem certainly can't hurt.

I hope this helps... good luck!

Make sure that you are installing a fresh/ full charge battery
Remove the battery
Clean the metal contacts on the battery using a clean cloth

Pls test with an alt. batt.
If you do not have access to a dif. battery.
Pls. take the batt out of the camera. 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 batt. If not you will need to order a No power repair.

Your batt. is covered under the same man. warranty as your camera.

Lens is stuck open


We had the same problem with a Casio Exilim. Had been stuck for months...had nearly given up until I saw another post about banging the camera pretty forcefully to get the lens unstuck. I hit it once on the bottom onto my desk(w/ paper and blotter on the desk-so soft), then twice with the back of the camera against the desk. I turned it on and the lens was unstuck!! Immediately took a couple pictures and it seems to be working fine! If the camera may be lost, you've got nothing to lose to try this out...Good luck!
