    I am having the same problem. I have put my camera on the charge but nothing. Lens will not come out and appears to be stuck. I paid quite a bit for this camera and it sounds by all the other complaints that I have wasted my money. Please help.

    I gave it to my friend for about 2 mins and it came back with the lens stuck out and off. I press the "on" button but it just lights up with the Pentax Optio screen then goes off. I really want it fixed.

"A previous post a few pages in, I think in 2004, suggested gently pushing up on the lens housing while you turn on the unit. I tried this, at first on the outer ring (didn't work), and then on the inner "cylinder", this time it worked. I have turned it on and off several times now and it is working fine."

"Re the E45 error .... my kodak camera showed the same. Didn't have the time or patience to send it back to kodak so ... undid 3 long screws from side and 4 short ones from base - prised apart carefully and cleaned the circular metal bit which is underneath selection dial. Put camera back together again and after re-setting the date and time, it all works perfectly."

Kodak easyshare c1450 lens stuck open lens obstructed

You need to remove the batteries and remove the memory card. Then reinstall the batteries. Finally, press and hold the "ok" button, the power on the camera. This is a factory reset trick. It fixes approximately 40% of all error messages on the KODAK EASY SHARE CAMERAS. But of course, no one is gonna be kind enough to help somebody out, they just want to take your money!

My Kodak easy share M1063 digital camera wont stay on

This problem is frequently due to corroded battery terminals inside the camera. Remove the batteries and wipe the terminals with a soft cloth (heavy corrosion may require a fine wire brush, steel wool, or sandpaper). Remove any residue left in the camera by the cleaning. Clean the terminals on the batteries in the same manner, and then replace them in the camera. This cures most problems, but if it doesn't work for you, check the Kodak troubleshooting guide at:

Kodak Easy Share Z1275 stuck lens

**** a very common problem with most cameras. There hasn't been much of a solution for this problem except to try to wiggle the lens zoom while pushing and holding the power button.
Also make sure you have brand new batteries installed. Even the slightest dead battery will cause a problem.

My Easy Share (Z730) is in the open position & will not close.

VERY COMMON WITH EASY SHARE. There are only a couple things you can really do. FIrst, try removing the memory card and try it. Than if that dosen't work. Try holding power button while gently wiggleing the zoom.
