Here's what worked for me (eventually):

  1. Tried the cleaining to no avail.
  2. Made sure the charger was Ok - it was
  3. Tried a new battery in camera shop that had been charged for 15 mins (I know it's not long but it shoudl at least open) - didn't work.
  4. Cleared off the memory card (there was a 0 byte JPG on there) but still didn't work. You can't see the internal memory via USB it seems until you can get into the menu so couldn't clear that.
  5. Performed the firmware upgrade as on other posts - http://www.kodak.com/global/mul/service/downloads/DownloadLookup.jhtml?pq-path=11647/11660&product=EKN033563 - still didn't work.
  6. Bought a new battery and charged it - didn't work straight away.
  7. I put the camera back on charge, then removed the battery etc. and had to try opening it several times before it finally started up. As soon as I got into the menu I reformatted both the internal memory and the memory card and now it all seems fine!
I'll be taking a spare camera with me for a while though so I don't miss any magic moments.

Good luck!

I have a Canon PowerShot A430 camera. When I turn it on, the lens doesn't open and it shuts off. The message on the screen says " Lens error, restart camera." Please advise. Thanks


Hi,

The Lens Error is displayed on the LCD screen when the Lens Mechanism is stuck or when affected by any malfunction. If turning the power on and off again does not resolve the error message, try doing a power reset and Initialize option.
Performing a manual power reset
Turn off the camera.
Remove the battery pack.
Press and hold the power button for 30 seconds.
Allow the camera to remain without power for 60 seconds.
Reinsert the battery pack.
Turn on the camera.
You can reset the Camera back to factory default by performing the following steps:
Press the power button.
Press and hold the MENU button for more than 5 seconds. Default Settings will get displayed.
Use the arrow buttons to select OK and press the FUNC./SET button. This will reset all the settings back to factory deafult.
This should resolve the issue. If the issue persists, service may be required.

Thanks for contacting FixYa

My olympus x-43 camera is only powering up for a few seconds even thought i put brand new batteries in it. also it makes a buzzing noice when the lens shuts and also the lens only goes in a little bit


Are you using Lithium Batterys? If not, this maybe the problem due to the Digital camera using alot of power. They are expensive but worth it in the long run and last a long while.

My M1033 had the same problem...I found a blog about someone using air to clean around the lens area...I cleaned my lens very thoroughly and noticed some gunk and once I cleaned this off, the camera seems to work like new!

My kodak easyshare V1253 Powers up, then shuts off


You have damaged your lens. If the camera can not move the lens it goes through a built in diagnostics test and shuts down. Beyond repair as cost to replace is beyond the value of your camera.

Rollei camera powers up and then shuts down


I would strongly suggest new, I mean NEW batteries, first.
You may be confident with your current batteries, but don't trust any rechargables you have, as they lose their 'power' (ability to supply enough current at the nominated voltage).
Also, don't trust any cheap batteries you have, definately no carbon type batteries.
Go buy some new Alkaline batteries (Energizer or Duracell, or some cheap Panasonic or Varta alkalines) and then we'll go from there.
This is an important step. Sorry if I'm stating the obvious, but a far far majority of digital camera faults and power related.
Let us know how this works out.

**.The best way to acknowledge contribution is to rate it's relevance.**

My polaroid i633 won't work!


YOur camera is looking for verification that the lens is extending. Once it sees the lens has extended when you power on, the sensors in the lens tell the Operating system that the lens is Ok.
If it does NOT see verification from the lens, it shuts down. Never force your lens back in. You may have to take the camera apart to reset the lens. you do this by removing the Zoom gear drive assembly and free you lens up by hand. 1 grain of sand or grit is like a Monkey Wrench in a Gear cog. Clear the obstruction with a can of compressed air, and work the lens with your hand. once you can that put it all back together and it should work.
