Question about Kodak EasyShare Z710 Digital Camera
I've had this Kodak EasyShare Z710 for about a year. I had to have work on it once before because of a lens problem. That time, it wouldn't open. Now, the last time I used it, the lens opened just fine, I took a couple pictures, then the lens stopped working and the screen went black. Now the zoom lens won't close at all. I know it's the lens and not the screen because I have no problem reviewing my previous pictures on the screen. I don't want to try and force the lens closed and possibly break it! I think I'm just beyond my warranty so I can't send it in without paying quite a bit. If there is something I could do to mechanically repair it (I am a computer tech so working on hardware is not new to me), that would be excellent! I await your response!
My Z710 does the same thing. is dead wont turn on. I sharp hit with the palm of my hand and it turns on everytime!

The glass front lens of mine is broken but the mechanism works fine, so thats the only part I need..Kodak said $211.00 for the whole lens, so I'm watching for damaged Z710's for sale all over the net..I've bookmarked this page..If I get one that has the working lens, I'll just use the front glass and let you guys know.hopefully somebody would do the same for me.I'm not a salesman, Thanks...Bill

I also have the same problem. My lens is stuck in the "out" position. The camera tries to turn on, but after about 5 seconds, it shuts down again. I have changed batteries, but it hasn't helped. The lens won't retract and the camera will not work.
Any solutions out there?

I too had the same problem. We were told we were using the wrong bateries, so we made sure that we used the correct ones, and it happened again and now the warranty is out and I can't send it to be fixed. If anyone has any idea what the problem is, please email me at [email protected].

Some cameras can be used as a webcam, however i dont think Kodak thought this through and therefore did not provide software for webcam on the cd.
