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

The lens of my camera is out and is not retracting. Have tried to charge it the green light comes on only when squeeze the on button and it still does not come on.I cant use my camera.


Check the battery of your Camera see if there is any leakage. If does change it. If not then I suggest bring your Camera to the nearest Kodak station so they can professionally see and solve the problems.

When I turned off my Kodak M863 the lens did not retract and now the camera will not turn on.


Hello

The problem is that the lens has become stuck in the barrel after dropping it. There are some DIY solutions you could try, but the probability is that you will have to get it fixed by a professional.

Use these at own risk as it may further damage the camera.

Firstly , try connecting your ac adapter or usb cable.

Try holding the shutter button while switching on the camera.

Look at the lens , and if some of the lens 'circles' is misaligned or not concentric then try wiggling it (while holding camera lens down).

Try gently pushing or pulling the lens when it extends but this is risky as it may cause the lens barrel to slip out of its guidance system.

Another way to do this is to place the camera lens down on a hard surface and then power it up. Be sure to use a soft cloth or something similar as to not scratch your lens or casing. Let the lens push the camera up and down a few times and sometimes the little resistance provided by the camera is enough to get things going again.

Try hitting your camera near the lens on the body with the soft tissue on the palm of your hand.

Other than that , I would take the camera to a repair center for a evaluation to see if it would cost more to repair than to replace the camera.

If it is still under warranty I would suggest you take it in before trying any of these steps and remove any off-brand batteries or accessories as some stores are really fussy about warranty repairs on camera's with non-brand accessories.

Hope the advise is useful.

Andrea

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.

Thanks for asking a question on Fixya.com.

My lens won't close


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 when swited on will switch its self off straight away


Its the lens that is faulty. Cam is designed to shut-off automatically when it is experiencing struggle extending or retacting the lens. Lens doesn't extend while reviewing pictures that is why it is not shutting off.

You need to send the camera for warranty.
Process it @ www.kodak.com/go/stepbystep
Or call Kodak Technical Support 1-800-235-6325 Ext #1 For English #12 Camera Dept. #2 For Service and Hardware Dept.

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!
