Hello

The problem is that the lens has become stuck in the barrel after dropping it. There are some DIY solutions you could try, but the probability is that you will have to get it fixed by a professional.

Use these at own risk as it may further damage the camera.

Firstly , try connecting your ac adapter or usb cable.

Try holding the shutter button while switching on the camera.

Look at the lens , and if some of the lens 'circles' is misaligned or not concentric then try wiggling it (while holding camera lens down).

Try gently pushing or pulling the lens when it extends but this is risky as it may cause the lens barrel to slip out of its guidance system.

Another way to do this is to place the camera lens down on a hard surface and then power it up. Be sure to use a soft cloth or something similar as to not scratch your lens or casing. Let the lens push the camera up and down a few times and sometimes the little resistance provided by the camera is enough to get things going again.

Try hitting your camera near the lens on the body with the soft tissue on the palm of your hand.

Other than that , I would take the camera to a repair center for a evaluation to see if it would cost more to repair than to replace the camera.

If it is still under warranty I would suggest you take it in before trying any of these steps and remove any off-brand batteries or accessories as some stores are really fussy about warranty repairs on camera's with non-brand accessories.

Hope the advise is useful.

Regards
Andrea

This is may be a camera battery problem or a lens error. Try Li-ion batteries first and see if anything better

I can not start the camera by pressing the power switch on. The display screen is also not showing any image.


A common problem is that the batteries are not the right ones, or are not charged up sufficiently to power the camera.

Are the batteries the Kodak Li Ion batteries that are required for this camera to work correctly?

Maybe, the batteries need to be changed to new ones.
Try to use Li ion batteries as recommended by Kodak.

My Kodak Easyshare Z1275 has short battery life. sometimes even newly charged 2600 MaH batteries cause problems. Powers up, lens extends, opens screen to set time and date then powers down. Sometimes i can...


wait, do you have Li Ion batteries or Ni MH?

I think that Kodak recommends Li Ion batteries which have a higher voltage on them.

I got some generic Li ion battery packs off of Amazon.com, with better specs. than Kodak, and they work fine for my Easyshare z1485 IS camera.

It cost me like $80 to get the charger and two battery packs that are Li Ion, but it's worth it.

My battery packs are rated at 2000 mAh 3.7 Volts each. It's the voltage that counts. You see, if you would split that in half, the voltage for each AA battery is 1.85V which is much higher than the 1.5V that regular Alkaline or Ni MH batteries are rated at.

I tried Alkalines, and Ni MH to no avail. But, the Li Ion batteries, did the trick for me.

Good luck on this 'repair' or battery upgrade.

Today I turned on my camera to take a picture and while it was turning on it made a weird noise, zoomed in and out, and then turned off. Why does it do this?


Are you using Li-ion batteries as recommended by Kodak?
Also, are they charged up sufficiently?

Many people try to use Alkaline or even NiMH batteries without success in Kodak digital cameras.

I would suggest using charged up Li-ion batteries.

LCD Screen shows Kodak Logo when turned on then goes blank.


You've probably corrupted the firmware download. If the camera is still recognized by your PC then I'd try downloading the firmware again and try to load it again into the camera. I don't wish to upset you but corrupting the firmware can in some instances make the camera unusable. Your manual should tell you if there's a reset and how to do it. Don't forget the camera's firmware can also be upgraded by loading the update onto the memory card and running it from there. GOOD LUCK BMW
