My Kodak EasyShare M530 will not turn on, and it is making buzzing noises when I try to turn it on.

its a lens jammed issue. Noise came from lens area. Use air on the lens area for cleaning the dust and then try. If required then trust it in other hand little bit. Not too harder.

My camera wont turn on.

If the lens is stuck inside the camera and you hear a motor noise - changing batteries will not help. This has happened because the lens barrel is jammed inside the camera. Unfortunately, you will not be able to repair that issue. If the lens is stuck outside the camera, slightly tilted, and you hear a motor noise; you might be able to save camera. First, only use good batteries (stay away from alkaline batteries - waste of money), go with Energizer Lithium or Duracell Power Pix (you will get your moneys worth and have less problems with the camera). Second, very GENTLY, pull the lens barrel up and in the opposite direction of the tilt (to make the lens barrel straight), you will hear a slight click sound - DO NOT PUSH ON THE LENS BARREL!!!. Put in the new batteries and the lens should retract.

My camera lens won't go back in and is making weird noises.

Since you said it makes noise when you turn it on, the gear system controlling the lens might be faulty. have it checked.

When powered on, lens system makes noise, doesn't move

As an experienced eBay seller, I have sold many broken items over the past ten years. They sell well and it's truly better than having them just sit there and taunt you. If the owner doesn't mind, listing it on eBay to recoup some of the money is not a bad idea. Write up an honest listing describing the camera's problems and history and take just one or two good photos to post with your description. It's what make eBay fun for both seller and buyer -- GREAT DEALS!
You've got a great start to your description already written. "Rich R6. When I turn the power on, the lense make a mechanical noise (3 times) and does not extend or even open the lens cover. I can repeat this over and over, and nothing happens. The CRIS repair estimate is $160."

EBAY HINT: List on a seven day auction ending on a Monday night in the beginning of a month for maximum price.
Good luck!

Lens jams can happen without dropping the camera. The lens motor is bad, or a grain of sand has got stuck in one of the lens cogs. Either way will need lens repair/replacement.

Lens jammed with sand

This does not get fixed - throw it away and buy a new one.

Same thing here Tankengine. My problem started when my camera took a spill of about 4 feet. After that I've been getting the same message you have been. I've sent a message to Sony so hopefully they will have an answer. Something tells me it's going to involve sending the camera away, and spending money on an old camera.
