Question about Kodak EasyShare M380 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Clicking sound My camera makes a clicking sound when I move it around...like it's a zoom issue. I took one back and got another one, but it has the same issue. The people at the store said it sounded like there was a screw loose inside the camera.

If you go to the Menu and click on the AF setting, change it to single AF and the sound should go away. It explains online that when it is on Continuous AF the camera is always trying to focus, which is what is making the noises. The sound does go away when you change it on the AF single setting. I am not so sure if I want to keep it or exchange it for a new one. Hope this helps.

The camera wont focus it makes a clicking noise


Most probably what i think is that the zooming/focus gears are either broken or something like sand may be peventing them from rolling/moving.

I had this issue once and i sent it back to the dealer as it was under warantly. They fixed it and sent it back to me. It would be best to send it over to the dealer if its under the waranty period.

The lens focas is messed up until i zoom it in it wasnt doing this until we took it to the beqach and it was still fine but now you hav e to zoom in to 2.4 to get the screen to not be fuzzy


Zoom lenses are very complex mechanisms with some lenses moving outward, while others are moving the opposite direction inside where you can't see them moving- the trip to the beach sounds like sand in part of the mechanism which isn't affected when zoomed out. Needs repair, but it's probably cheaper to buy another one as the repaiir will be higher than the price of a used one at around $75, and probably more than the price of a new one. Even if they do repair, you can never get all the sand out of the camera and lens.

My nikon 55-200 zoom lens is stuck at full zoom


Don't force it.
Did you get dust or dirt in it?
The only solution is to bring it in for service or send it to Nikon if it is a USA model.
Nikon USA will NOT repair any gray market items.

Zooming in.


Your camera jumped out of gear. Open the front metal cover and disassemble all arm working with the main motor gear and try to reposition the red dot on the big gear with the small gear side by side. Presto now your camera is aligned. Place all arms back in order to your new alignment.you got your self a working camera. D: 3403 3404 mean error = some thing is block your lense and stopping the motored gear. For future referance don't drop the camera agian, next time it might be a expensive fix next time around.

Dear wwgirl:

Your problem initially sounded like a simple lens error (and was). However you now seem to have alsao developed a possible image sensor issue as well. Contact Canon Tech Support at 1-800-828-4040 to set up a repair of the camera.

Hope this helps.

After many complaints Canon posted this on their web site: "The E18 error code may be displayed if you apply pressure to the zoom lens, lens barrier or surrounding area when handling the camera. Hold the camera so that your fingers do not touch the zoom lens."
There is a lot you can try...
Here is a list of pages with help on the E18 issue:

I can not take pictures


update, possible solution..
I pulled the batteries for 24 hours, attempting to force a reset of the camera. Today it worked, took pictures and zoomed just fine. I shut it off after about 10 pics and turned it back on and back to the start... Took the batteries out for a few minutes and put it back in and back in business. Hope this helps at least get SOME functionality out of it. This won't serve as a long term solution for me, but perhaps will lead towards a full answer.

The camera zoom got jammed


This can be caused by several different situations. Most commonly the camera has experienced some kind of impact which knocks an element out of alignment, preventing the lens from rotating normally. Symptoms of this include: *you may hear no mechanical sound at all when the camera is turned on *you may see visibly mis-aligned components of the lens *you may hear a loud "snap snap" sound as the camera tries to move the lens when the camera is powered on The second most common cause is a particle of sand getting stuck in the focus motor drive gears. This prevents the focus element from moving normally and causes the camera to shut off to prevent damage to the lens assembly. Symptoms of this include: *A loud "buzzing" sound when the camera is turned on, followed by the beeping and shutdown. Finally the third most common cause of this problem is a broken tooth on the zoom motor drive gears. Symptoms of this include: *the sound of the running motor with a regular "click click click" sound for several seconds. This will not be a "snap snap" sound, that is a different problem. *the lens will move in and out easily by hand as if free from any resistance. All of these problems require disassembly to repair. The charge is around $125 at my shop. Broken drive gears are generally This can be caused by several different situations.
