Question about Kodak EASYSHARE M340 Digital Camera

2 Answers

My Kodak EasyShare M340 turns on, but then shuts off immediately.

The battery is fully charged, and the camera is only a few months old. I press the power button, the lens fully extends. But then the light blinks red, and it shuts off. I've tried wiping down the battery and removing the memory card, but nothing seems to work.

This happened to us after our son stepped on it. When it comes on and the lens tries to extend it can't fully causing it to retract and shut off.

You have to try and help the lens get unstuck depending on what you think the cause might be.

For us, we got real lucky. I gently tapped the camera on the side closes to the lens 3 times and turned it on, then it opened like normal again!

Kodak easyshare won't work unless plugged into charger


Hello Pam, You have either a faulty contact for the battery or your battery is suffering from age. After time these camera batteries lose their capacity. Try a new fully charged battery.

Maybe, the batteries need to be changed to new ones.
Try to use Li ion batteries as recommended by Kodak.

Here are the steps: 1. Make sure you will install a new or fully charged battery/batteries into your camera. 2. Clean the battery contacts. a. Remove the battery/batteries and the memory card from your camera, then wipe the battery contacts with a soft, clean cloth. b. Reinstall the battery/batteries into your camera. Please make sure that you are installing a fresh/ fully charged battery c. Without the memory card, turn your camera on. 3. Please test with the a different battery If you do not have access to another battery Try these steps instead: Please take the battery out of the camera. b. 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 battery. If you camera doesn?t switch on you will need to order a No power repair or a new cable.

Kodak Easyshare M340 is fully charged but turns off immediately


I had the same problem after a day at the beach. 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.

Camera won't stay on


I may be able to help with your Kodak EasyShare Z740 that turns itself off.

It may be a 'lens extending' problem, or it might be fixed with a combination of button presses to reset it while turning it on.

Try these steps to fix your camera.

I hope that helps.
