My camera does the same thing. It is getting progressively worse. To get it to work, I have to open the battery door and push the battery a little and finally the camera will turn on and lens will close. Something is wrong with the connection at the terminals and I don't think its something that the owner can easily fix, but at least you can jump start the camera working again. Its just a pain to have to fiddle with it sometimes and it scares me that it might not start again one of these days. If its under warranty get it turned back it quickly.

My camera won't turn on and the lens won't close


Perhaps you have bad batteries? Connect it to another power source such as an AC wall outlet and use your power adapter and see if this helps. If it does not or you have already tried this then your camera may need to be serviced.

M863 lens extends and then immediately retracts


Kodak Easyshare cameras use Li ion batteries, as recommended by the manufacturer, which have higher voltages but not necessarily higher amp hours per battery pack.

When I first bought my 14.1 megapixel camera from Kodak, I tried various batteries, including Alkaline, Ni MH, and they didn't work very long before needing replacement or recharging.

This is because the voltage isn't enough on other batteries.

I do not understand why they make it this way, because it fooled me a lot. I thought that since it had a AA format that it would be alright to use AA batteries of any type in the camera. But, this is not so, in my experience.

Good luck getting your camera to work with new Li Ion Batteries.
Note: if the Li Ion batteries do not work, then there is something wrong internally with your camera.

Contact kodak.com to see if it is economically repairable.

My Camera still works but it wont let me take pictures plus the lens wont close when the camera is off what should i do?


Sounds like a power problem. Remove the batteries, recharge them, insert them and turn the camera on, and then off. Camera should now be reset.

Clean the contacts inside the battery compartment with a cotton swab "dampened" with rubbing alcohol. Do the same to the battery and the charger.

If your cam use manufactors rechargeble batt.:
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.

Kodak easy share digital camera m863


I have a Easy Share M863 and have had it less than a year. It was working great and then last week I tried turning it on and it would not open. I thought it might be the battery needed charging so I did that. It still will not open. I contacted Kodak and they told me they would give me 15% on a new digital camera. That is not what I wanted. My camera is not even a year old. It should have lasted longer I think.

KODAK M863 LENS STUCK


Here's what I did...Mine had the lens stuck out and would not power on. Just a green blinking for a second or two. Well, I tried twisting the lens ring closest to the camera while hitting the power button. It's kinda tricky to do...BUT, just keep at it. Mine was a $1 resale shop "find" and now it works. This worked for me. Maybe it will help you!
