Question about Kodak EasyShare C613 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Memory card and lens

Reading through here I see that others have this issue but with no real solutions posted. Must be common issues that we're just screwed on? My C613 is only a few weeks old. Memory card was formatted and working great and then suddenly it doesn't. Says internal memory full after 8 pictures; says the memory card isn't formatted and can't be read. Lens is stuck out and won't go in. If I turn on camera it gives me an error message that says "Lens Error 126, 1, 0, -9" and then shuts off. Lens will NOT go in and is crooked.

Great..wasted money on this..

    My camera fell on the floor and the lens is crooked and cracked. And when I try to turn the camera on or off it just says lens error: 126,1,0,-6. Does anyone know what that means and if it can be fixed? And if so, how much will it cost?

  • Insert your memory card into your computer's reader if you have one. If not, you can purchase a multi-format USB Memory Card reader from or
  • 2 Open up 'My Computer'. You should see it under the list of available drives.
  • 3 Check its contents first to make sure that you have the right drive.
  • 4 In 'My Computer', right-click on the drive and choose 'Format'.
  • 5 Leave all the options as they are and click on 'Start'. This is a non-reversible process so make sure this is what you truly wanted to do in the first place.
  • 6 Once the process is completed, take the memory card out and insert it into your Digital Camera or any other device. Try to browse to it to make sure it works fine now.

    My ps3 is not reading discs


    This problem is common with the PS3 and typical of a failure of the bluray drive. It can sometimes be resolved by cleaning the laser pickup lens but often the lens itself needs to be replaced.

    For a full breakdown on the issues involved please view this FixYa Tip.

    My sony dsc w35 turns on fine, then the word

    This means it's having an issue using the memory card or internal memory (which the DSCW35 does have some of). Check to see that your memory card is inserted properly, and if so, try putting a different card in.
    If the cards are inserted properly and switching out the cards doesn't help either, the pins that touch the memory card are likely scratched or have been damaged. If they appear to be fine, your camera is having issues reading cards and will need to be sent for service repair. If it's inside of warranty, contact Sony or the retailer you purchased it from, otherwise, look for a local service depot; the repair is not expensive.

    Please when ever I switch on my camera and the lens comes out,it goes back and the machine goes off,but am able to watch old pictures but can not take new one! please help.

    Here are the steps:

    1. Make sure you will install a new or fully charged battery/batteries into your camera.

    2. Clean the battery contacts.

    a. Remove the battery/batteries and the memory card from your camera, then wipe the battery contacts with a soft, clean cloth.
    b. Reinstall the battery/batteries into your camera

    3. Without the memory card,turn on your camera.

    If issue persists, call 1.800.235.6325 for repair.

    It requires repair, its a common issue w/ these model of the KOdak camera. Even if the camera is off you may view the "Favorites". Issue has something to do with the lens.

    Stuck lens. no activity from camera

    Common problem with this camera. NOT a battery issue, but could be power issue (possibly from a short either with battery connections or on board of camera). Tapping lightly on side of camera seems to resolve in most cases. Problem may reappear. Without service it won't really be "fixed" and even then if they can't recreate problem they won't find solution. Kodak is very aware of this issue but won't respond on it. Good luck.

    Problems with Call for Duty 2 - GC grey screens after 25 minutes

    I've played that game before and there is a cheat to make it grey if you beat easy mode. I don't really get the point of the cheat but that's what it does. Maybe it's just a glitch. Sorry if that was irrevelant. I'm pretty sure that would just be the game itself.
