Question about Kodak EasyShare Z612 Digital Camera
It is locked lense is half extended--when i press power on button
it just blips-light comes on for a fraction of a second, lense very slightly
moves and camera turns off
I just got my camera back from a repair shop, and I had the same problem. It's lens shutter damage. My camera was dropped while on vacation and suddenly got horizontal lines through every pic.
Unfortunately, the shop could not repair this and suggested I send it in to Kodak. Good luck

Yes you are. My wife denied that she dropped in the sand but I found a list of photos that she wanted to print on a post-it paper in the cover and it had sand all over the sticky part. Used the pressure air spray to clean the rings and it is back to life. Well It worked but there was some problem during zoom in&out, so I spray the rings while zooming and out and that cleaned it. I hope I don't have to open it to clean the mechanism. Thank you.

Z612 is not compatible with SDHC card., the compatible and recommended Memory card you can only used is 1GB SD card or 2GB SD card. Gudluck!

You can't. The Z612 uses SD cards. Your 4GB card is actually an SDHC (Secure Digital High Capacity) card and is incompatible with SD devices.
For SD cards (2GB and smaller), you'll find the Format operation in the Setup menu. Press the Menu button, then use up/down to select the wrench, then press OK.

SOURCE: I have not been able
The problem is that your camera is only compatible with SD cards, not
SDHC cards. You bought a larger card for your older camera, not
noticing that it was SDHC (or not knowing that it mattered). The new
card can't be formatted, not because it or the camera is broken, but because
it's not compatible.
Cards up to 2Gb are generally SD.
Cards of 4Gb are generally SDHC.
Cards over 8Gb have to be SDHC.
(There are exceptions. Sometimes, manufacturers make 4Gb SDHC cards but some have errors; they disable half of the chip and sell it as 2Gb, but it's still SDHC. 4Gb cards are almost always SDHC because they're cheaper, but 4Gb SD cards do exist. They are so rare that I've even seen a guru on this site claim they don't. I did own one once, but it was very expensive and turned out to be so unreliable that I had to return it. I don't recommend looking for one, because of the problems.)
Your solution is to go find a 2Gb card, and be extra sure that it doesn't say "SDHC" on it.
