Question about Kodak EasyShare M1033 Digital Camera
I have charged battery, taken battery out and put it back in, I have talked to it about acting right..help, I cant even take the pics on it off with my computer as usual..
It sounds like the lens assembly has been bumped, and may be broken. There are many very small gears that can break teeth easily when the lens gets accidentally bumped in the extended position, or if it encounters resistance while extending. I will leave a link that explains things you can try to get it to work, but first lets get those pictures downloaded. Since the camera is "jammed up", you will have to take the SD card out of the camera, and use a card reader to connect it to your computer usb port. Then windows will detect the card, and you can transfer them to your computer. Some printers also have built in card readers, and you can transfer them through the printer to the computer. Here is a link to the things you can try to free up the lens. They say you can get the camera working in about 1/2 the cases, with the things they suggest to try. If nothing works out for you, you will have to either have the camera repaired, or replace it. Make sure you get an estimate before having it repaired, as it can be fairly costly, and some people just go ahead and buy a new camera at that point. Here is the link for the things you can do to try to free up the lens. Good luck! Don't feel alone, by the way, this happens a LOT.
This blog deals with lens error messages AND stuck lens assemblies. It covers everything you can try to get it working without taking it apart. Again, good luck!
