SOURCE: Kodak EasyShare One lens won't open - camera cycles on/off

I had the same problem. Even though I was keeping the camera on the dock all of the time to charge it, the solution was very simple - get a new battery for inside the camera.

I bought new ones at a greatly reduced price on eBay. Now I carry one with me wherever I go in case the battery wears out/down.

I shoot a lot of videos, so it really takes a lot out of the batteries.

If you've recently dropped the camera you may have damaged the lens zoom mechanism. This causes the camera to shut down, preventing further damage. There's no safe DIY fix for that, and the camera will require professional repair.

Another possibility is a buildup of dust, dirt, etc. in the lens mechanism. This is routinely caused by using the camera in dusty/sandy outdoor settings, or by keeping the camera in a case or camera bag. Sounds odd, but the cases build up dust which eventually ends up in the lens area. You can try blowing out the area with air from a compressor or keyboard cleaner (canned air), but this problem often requires professional repair/cleaning.

Your problem could also be power related. If your rechargeable battery is more than a year old it may need to be replaced. Old batteries appear to charge up OK, but they frequently do not hold a charge sufficient to operate the camera. Before you replace the battery though, wipe the contacts on it, and in the camera's battery compartment, with a clean dry cloth to remove corrosion that may have built up. Heavy corrosion may require cleaning with a fine wire brush, steel wool, or sandpaper. After the cleaning, give the battery a good charge and then see if the camera is working.

If repairs are needed, take the camera to a Kodak dealer/repair point (NOT the camera department in a chain store) and also check Kodak customer service on line at www.kodak.com. Be sure to get a firm price, not just an estimate, before you commit. The price of a fix can approach the cost of a new camera, and repairs typically only carry a 30-day warranty.

Have you made sure that the batteries are LiIon and fully charged? I had a similar problem with a Kodak Easyshare camera that required the higher voltage LiIon battery pack rather than alkaline AAs which will fit in there but is not exactly right.

How do i charge my new Kodak easyshare c182


The C182 isn't a battery charger. It uses standard AA batteries, disposable or rechargeable. If you use rechargeable batteries, you must charge them outside the camera using a standard battery charger.

A family member of mine had that exact same camera and it did the exact same thing (though, he left his in the snow all night).
The way he got around it, was to turn it on, and then hold on to the lens to prevent it from closing back into the camera.
This trick always worked for him, but if you do it, it may mess up more things with the camera. If it's a risk you are willing to take, go for it!

Could be time for a new camera But check out Kodak Support first. It has been said that cameras in a certain price band[any make/model] are to be considered as disposable -like toasters and kettles I guess.
