Pull the battery and plug the charger into the camera. It should turn on and take pics now. If it does, you need a new battery!

Yeah, I know, the battery shows fully charged but it's weak and old so it really doesn't have the current to drive the lens.

Try to clean the battery terminals with an abrasve pencil eraser, (old red eraser #2 pencil from grade school) and wiggle the battery in the camera (gently) to clean the terminals inside the camera.

Let the camera charge the battery completly, (not in the dock!) and see if it turns on.

If it does, you will probably find that it discharges VERY quickly.

Buy a new battery! That extra battery that you have had since you bought the camera is probably also shot! They do have a shelf life!

If the camera does not turn on with just the charger, (no battery) then it's probably a lens error, but you should see an error code if it is.

Good luck!

Lens only goes thru zoom cycle then shuts off


Your fix could be as simple as cleaning the camera's battery contacts, or it could be something more serious and expensive. Before you pay for expensive repairs that you may or may not need, check the Kodak Help Center by clicking on the link below. It uses a simple Q&A format to diagnose problems and propose solutions.

Olympus Stylus 730 shuts off after few seconds. Battery is fully charged, tried a resetting: no change.


To save battery power, the camera automatically goes into sleep mode and the monitor turns off if there is no operation when the camera is turned on (when the lens cover opens and the monitor is on). No picture is taken even if the shutter button is fully pressed in this mode.
Operate the zoom lever or other buttons to restore the camera from sleep mode before taking a picture. If the camera is left for 15 minutes, it automatically turns off (the lens cover closes and the monitor turns off). Press POWER to turn the camera on.

Turn Camera off remove batteries for a few moments. Re insert batteries. Turn on will reset itself. Ensure you use correct focus settings as per instructions. If you dont use correct settings this problem will reoccur.

Zoom will not retract


Dear Grammie,

You have either experienced a lens error or your zoom dial is broken (both usually caused by some sort of impact damage, but which can be spontaneously occuring).

Look for an error message on your camera's LCD screen such as "E18," or "lens error restart camera." If you do not see a lens error but simply cannot retract your zom lens (go into wide angle mode) via the zoom lever then it simply maybe a broken command dial. Either way, however, you will need to have the camera serviced in all likelihood. Call tech support at 1-800-828-4040 M-F from 8 am to 12 midnight EST and Saturdays until 8 pm EST. Hope this helps.

Sincerely,
HeavyDLB

Noise when turned on


Sounds like the gears are stripped in your lens. Send it into repairs and they will send you an estimate on what it would cost to fix it. Give them a call at 800-706-2534 option 2.
