Question about Kodak EasyShare V603 Digital Camera

1 Answer

I drop the camera. The digital zoom won't come in again. It's stuck. It kind of looks like the Pisa tower where one layer is in an angle. How to I manage to fix it? The power went off, but the digital zoom is still out, in an angle. It won't open again. The power went on but since it can't move, the power just shut down again.

My zoom will not come out, just clicks trying to come out.


Stuck zoom is the most common failure mode for a digital camera. Some common error messages that might show up on the LCD's of cameras with this problem include "E18 lens error", or "lens error, restart camera". Some cameras might show nothing at all, but merely make a beeping noise as the lens goes out, then in, then the camera shuts off. Sometimes the lens won't even move.
The problem is actually quite common throughout all camera brands. Usually it's sand or grit interfering with the lens extension mechanism. Or the camera's been dropped with the lens extended. Or the camera has been powered on, but the lens had been blocked preventing its extension. Or the battery ran down with the lens extended.
A camera owner that suffers this problem may have no recourse for having the camera repaired. Many camera makers will not honor repairing this problem under warranty as they claim it is due to impact damage to the camera, or sand or debris getting into the lens gearing mechanism (neither of which is covered under warranty). The quoted repair cost is usually close to or more than what the camera is actually worth.
This part can be easily replaced in most cameras.

FinePix F480. Zoom keeps coming out at an angle and jamming so that it won't return into casing.This gives 'Zoom Errors.'


The lens needs to be replaced, or if you can try and SNAP the lens back towards center so it's not at an angle you might be able to fix it. Most likely not though, and you will have to replace the lens.

I dropped the camera and the zoom lens got off line. It won't close or go back in the camera. It looks stuck and I tried pushing it in but I'm afraid that I might push hard that it'll break...


The lens may be fixable but most likely will need to be replaced.
If the lens is stuck straight or won't come out at all it needs to be replaced.
If the lens is stuck at an angle then you may be able to snap it back to the center by pressing the edge of the lens back towards center while holding on the outer ring of the lens.
Hope this helps!

The camera turns on the lens dont return back into the camera


This is a typical lens problems unfortunately.

If the lens is stuck at an angle like the leaning tower of Pisa, then you can try to "snap" it back towards the middle to straighten it out. This is done at your own risk. Hold onto the larger ring of the lens, the one closer to the body of the camera and place the round edge of the outer section of the lens against the edge of a table or counter. Now apply pressure on the lens, pressing it back towards the middle. Hopefully the guide pin that is out of its track will pop back in and everything will work properly again!

If the lens is not at an angle, it needs to be replaced, that's the easiest solution because trying to rebuild one of these lenses is extremely difficult. You would be best off dealing with Canon directly for this repair! 1-800-OK-CANON

This is a typical jammed lens situation, but turning off and on the camera will not fix anything unfortunately.

If the lens is not at an angle, it needs to be replaced, that's the easiest solution because trying to rebuild one of these lenses is very difficult. If it's less than a year old, contact Canon and they will replace it with another SD1300, they do not fix this model or sell parts for it.

If that's not an option, I believe we can get a refurbished lens, but the repair will be over $100 total. Wish I had better news, sorry.

You would probably be best off dealing with Panasonic directly, find the repair info on their site and ask if you can get an estimate without sending in the camera. I would expect the total for the repair to be between $125 and $150.
