What do i do about a lens error 122,1,0,0
my father has this same camera and the same lens error. while my father and his fiance were on vacation they wanted their picture taken so they asked this sweet old lady to take it for them. after she took the picture when she went to hand it back to his fiance and say thank u. the old lady was a little short when handing it back to my fathers fiance and it fell to the ground. the lens that comes out is crooked and when u turn on the camera the lens tries to move and the screen says lens error 122 etc then shuts off. this feature is great cuz the camera knows something is wrong and shuts the camera back off to avoid further damage. i googled a repair manual when i came across ur post. we want to send it to kodak and get it repaired but were wondering if the cost to repair and shipping back to my father --- if its about the price of a new camera he'll probably just get a new camera. i suggested since im so good with fixing stuff could i take a shot at trying to fix it? he said its worth a shot. so i just took out all the screws on the outside of the camera and i have an old guitar pick to pry it open without mangling the plastic cover. if i can fix several desktop computers and i personally built the laptop im using right now, im sure i can fix the camera back to working order. the scuffs might still be there, but if i can get this to work again, i know i succeeded. this camera is about $100-$150. not sure of the exact price or where the many places u would find it. which is practically everywhere cameras are sold. ill bookmark this post and if i succeed and what i do to succeed, ill come back and post some tips. but please be aware this fix u might do, will be completely ur risk at fixing ur camera. my fathers camera is less than a year old so im charting into new territories. i hope i can do this. take care and talk to you soon. melissa locust grove, ga ps: if u succeed, please post any tips on how u fixed ur camera.
