The problem you describe is frequently battery related. Make sure that you have the correct battery type installed, and that the batteries are fresh/fully charged. If the problem persists, you may have corrosion on the battery contacts inside that camera that is preventing full battery power from flowing into the camera. Remove the batteries and wipe the inside camera contacts firmly with a dry cloth (heavy corrosion may require cleaning with a wire brush, steel wool, or sand paper). Remove any residue that may have fallen into the battery compartment during cleaning, then wipe both ends of the batteries and reinstall them in the camera. This cleaning solves the problem about 90% of the time, and I hope it works for you.

Kodak EasyShare One lens won't open - camera cycles on/off


I had the same problem. Even though I was keeping the camera on the dock all of the time to charge it, the solution was very simple - get a new battery for inside the camera.

I bought new ones at a greatly reduced price on eBay. Now I carry one with me wherever I go in case the battery wears out/down.

I shoot a lot of videos, so it really takes a lot out of the batteries.

Lens stuck open after dropping.


Sounds like your lens is out of alignment. Added to that something w/ the screen is affected by the lens. Safest way is to have a technician check it out. A short cut I take is to look at the lens carefully and see if there is something loose or how mis-aligned is the lens. Sometimes a slight nudge will get it working properly. But whether it starts to work or not, the lens is already misaligned and you may still have a problem taking clear pictures. So even with my short cut, I'd still suggest you bring it in for repairs. It's really not a good idea to do short cuts unless you have a budget problem. Take care of your camera and keep the strap around your neck at all times so you don't drop it again.

Lens problem?


This sounds like your automatic lens cover on the front of your lens is sticking. If this happens, take a look at the front opening of your lens to confirm this (it's very obvious). If so, try the simple fixes listed here (don't open the front if you can avoid it):

Camera powers up but lens cover fails to open


It could be some grit or sand causing the lens cover to not open, so the camera won't initialize. Try cutting a slip of paper narrow enough to slide between the lens opening frame and the lens cover. Move it in and out to clear any grit that might cause the spring-loaded cover to bind. Good luck !
