Kodak Easyshare Z700 Camera

One of my students dropped our Easyshare Kodak Z700 camera. The lens won't close. You can hear it trying but it keeps shutting itself off. We've tried a different battery, pulled the card but don't know what else to do.

You will probably have to send it in for repair.

Lost software for my z700

You can download Kodak Easyshare software from

You might want to consider NOT connecting your camera to your computer. The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.

Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use any photo cataloging program, such as Picasa ( ).

My camera lens is stuck in the closed position. When I turn the camera on, the motor runs, but nothing happens. I accidentally picked the z740 camera when posting the proplem originally, but the z700 is...

If you've dropped the camera you may have damaged the lens housing - which will require professional repair, but the problem you describe is frequently due to corroded battery contacts inside the camera. Remove the batteries and wipe the camera contacts firmly with a clean cloth (heavy corrosion may require cleaning with a fine wire brush, steel wool, or fine sandpaper). Remove any residue that may have fallen into the battery compartment during cleaning, clean the contacts at both ends of the batteries, and reinsert them in the camera. This cleaning cures the problem about 90% of the time, and I hope it works for you.

Tentative solution:
I had the identical problem. I went as far as disassembling the camera ... not recommended.

Instead of fussing with the lens cover, I pressed on the lens assembly (gently), the lens retracted and the lens cover closed.

My camera works now. It will be my last Kodak.

Good Luck,

Powers off

I have the same problem. Removing the memory card and then starting up seemed to fix it; the camera would then start up ok even with the card in.
