The symptoms you describe sound very much like a failing battery. How old is your battery? Rechargeable batteries are only meant to last for a couple years, regardless of use.

The camera will not turn off and the lens is not fully retracted


Hi,
from your question I understand there may be problems in the lens unit, in some cases totally open the lens unit fully re assemble it again,clean the sensors at side of the barrels, can override this snags.
the below picture is not the same, but similarly you take the cam sect out and reassemble it.

My camera will not stay on is off and stuck with lens out


If the lens doesn't retract on most digital camera the camera also will not turn ON. It is connection or wiring between camera power and camera lens.
What Kodak Rep will ask you to do are:
1. Remove the battery and the memory card of the camera
2. Check if your using a recommended battery and if its new or fully charge. batteries for Z1275 are Ni-MH rechargeable; CRV3 Lithium; 2AA Lithium
3. Insert the batteries back in the camera in correctly
4. Set the camera in Auto mode (its the camera icon on the dialing mode of the camera)
5. Try to turn it ON
If still will not turn ON and the lens will not retract
6. If your using a rechargeable battery Kodak Rep will ask you to charge the battery until its fully charge.
If your using a disposable battery they will ask you to try to use a new battery out from the box.
After all those steps still the camera failed to work, it will be send for repair. The number of the Kodak support line is 1 800 235 6325 (23KODAK)

Powers on, lens extends, 3 beeps, lens closes, camera turns off


Try doing a couple of things.

1) remove and digital media cards.
2) turn the camera on and delete any pictures that may be stored in the camera memory (not on a removeable card)
3) remove the batteries for 60 seconds
4) replace the batteries without the media card and lay the camera on a flat surface with the lens pointing up (5) The lens should retract.
6) Turn off the camera
7) replace the media card and turn on.

I think the camera was getting hung up on the pictures stored in the camera's memory.

Lens will not retract after being


the problem is that the lens is out of alignment. if its not making grinding sounds try manually help the lens to reseat itself. if that doesnt work its not ecomical to repair unit cuz parts and labor are about 120-130 dollars.

Casio exilim lens retracts wen u press to take pic


The battery probably needs charging. The camera will automatically shut down if the battery is going flat.
With the Exilim you need to make sure that you don't overcharge the battery by leaving it permanently docked in it's little docking station - this can damage the battery. There is an LED on the docking station which shows the status of the battery. Red is charging, green is fully charged - take it off the docking station.

I have a Fuji FinePix A345. It is out of warranty. I put freshly-charged batteries in, take one or two pics, then get a low batter-reading, followed by the camera shutting off power. I took batteries...


The zoom lens on my A345 has been intermittently sticking for years. Finally it would only pop out about 5mm. I took my courage in my hands and put 1 drop of very light oil (sewing machine oil) on a cotton bud and wiped it over the visible parts of the lens cylinders. Switching it off the barrel retracted, and when switching on it extended fully. I wiped the same bud (without adding any more oil) over every exposed parts of the barrels. It's not failed yet, but it's early days...

The lens on my camera won't retract.


The following blog outlines some repair options for a lens error. They won't work for all cases, but they're worth a try if the camera's no longer under warranty:

Kodak easy share z612 will not turn on to take a picture


When the battery dies, usually the camera will retract the lens if possible. If the battery is so dead the lens can not retract, I would recommend trying to charge or change the battery. Or try to turn the camera on, and then manually shutting it off if you can.
