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

I turn on the camera and the screen starts flashing. lenses wont come out all the way. Fell in the pool.


if it fell in the pool you wouldn't have turned it on instead you would have pulled out the batteries and place the camera in a conducive environment for it to dry for about 2hrs before turning it on......Anyway you can still try..

My camera won't turn on


I had exactly the same problem with mine. Here is what I did to fix it.

put new battery in
1- Clean around the lense
2- While turning the camera off, press the lense in (up and down with lense movement) NOT too hard. Try that a few times until the lense either retract 100% or almost 100%. If almost 100%, press on the lense a little harder so that the lense be in 100% (like it normally closes)

If you turn your camera on and off a couple of times, your camera will work as it does normally.

GOOD LUCK!!!!!!!!!!

My camera cybershot dsc-170B fell down and the lens is unable to open fully. so error message comes like "please start it again". Please let me know how can i fix the problem..the problem may be with...


Usually the case gets bent and partially obstructs the lense movement. Look at the front of the camera and does the case opening for the lense apear to be egg shaped. If it does stick a small screw driver or butter knife and bent back.

Lens error


ok,i had this problem & couldnt find solution anywhere,so i took the back off the camera to reveal the lense unit.Now there is 2 screws in the middle of the back of the lense you need to remove together with ribbon cable.Underneath this is a small square rubber seal which was not seated properly.All i done was to seat it back in the right place,put all back together & hey presto,turned camera on & all was good.
This might not be the same problem you all have but it worked for me.
Good luck !!!

Lense problem


I had the same problem and for quite some time just kept trying to turn the camera on and off. Finally, just pushed on the lens (not the glass part of course) and it "unstuck" and has been fine in that regard ever since.

Lense wont come out


It sounds like the drive gear(s) are broken. Kodak generally doesn't sell parts for their digital products so you are stuck taking it directly to Kodak for service.
