If the camera also switched off. Try this.

However hope this will help:
If your cam use AA batt.:
Pls. use lithium batteries Ni-Mh or rechargeable Batteries (2000 M.Amp or higher).
Clean the metal contacts on the battery using a clean cloth

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 easyshare Z650 lens extends and retracts


I only can think of two reasons. The first, the battery does not have enough power. As a safety precaution it shuts itself down, to avoid damage to the saved pictures. Because if the voltage is to low, it can't write with 100% accuracy.
Second: something is blocking free movement of the lens. This could have a cause inside the lens barrel, and you won't see a thing. It also could be a minute damage on the outside of the lens. Or what sometimes happens while putting the camera on, you touch the lens barrel. I assume you did remove any lens cap attached to the camera.
So if you can't see any damage to the lens barrel, charge the battery and try again.

Have you made sure that the batteries are LiIon and fully charged? I had a similar problem with a Kodak Easyshare camera that required the higher voltage LiIon battery pack rather than alkaline AAs which will fit in there but is not exactly right.

If the lens makes a partial movement when you attempt to power up, it is probably dirt/sand that has jammed up your lens in the extended position. First use a vacuum to remove dirt between the lens gap. Next, be very careful, but when you power up, as the lens tries to retract apply a little force to help the lens, listen for a click that indicates that the lens barrel guide pins may have reseated in their guide slots. If you hear this click, immediately stop and try the camera

The lens will not retract and it makes a grind noise


I had the opposite problem, my lens would not full extend. It would immediately retract and turn back off. If you take a can of compressed air and blow it out as you cycle it on/off. It should clear whatever is preventing it from closing.

Here is what my problem was and how I fixed it.

What I did was get a can of compressed air (from the computer section) and blow air around the lens as I repeatedly turned it on. It took about five cycles, but I eventually cleared whatever was preventing the lens from fully opening.

Good luck.

Lens comes out, then retracts after charging.


If this camera has a rechargeable battery in it You Will Have to Get a new battery for it(Your Description indicates a Bad Battery Cell). If it uses AA Rechargeable Batteries they will Need to Be Replaced.

Lens will not retract


Lens errors (E18 errors on Canons) are fairly common. Usually it's sand or grit interfering with the lens extension mechanism. Or the camera's been dropped with the lens extended. Or the camera has been powered on, but the lens had been blocked preventing its extension. Or the battery ran down with the lens extended ...

Here's some things that you can do to try to correct it. They only seem to work for less than 50% of the lens errors, but if the camera is out of warranty, they're worth a try:
