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

How do i fix my kodak easyshare ZD8612is when wont turn on even with batteries?


Where did you get these new batteries?
I hope you know you can't use alkaline or NiMH rechargeable batteries.
Only Lithium batteries can be used, because they do have a higher voltage.
If you are sure you have the correct batteries, check if the contacts are clean and shiny. Clean contacts always with a dry cloth or cotton swabs. Never use anything sharp in or close to a camera.
the picture down here is just to show you can't use alkaline batteries. There are also rechargeable lithium batteries for your Kodak.

Bought a new battery it wont even turn over to start


If you get a clicking sound, that means the solenoid is working. Check all connections for corrosion and clean if necessary. Did you check the engine to frame ground wire? If all connections are good and solenoid clicks then the starter is more than likely bad. Did you do a load test on the new battery. It is possible to get a battery that is bad due to excess lead dropping into the battery case when being made.

New battery In mercedes no power


I'm not a car mechanic, but, it sounds like you might want to check the fuse to the ignition switch, and, if that fails, it might be a problem with the Start Safety Switch on the transmission. Good luck.

Battery wont charge but has power, lights come on but it wont turn over


My first guess would be a bad connection at one of the battery posts, or a dead cell inside the battery.

Car wont start. power to accessories. wont turn over. wont even click. new battery ad new starter. any ideas?


Hello,
If you not even have a click this narrows it down to only a couple of areas. Most likely it is a ground issue. I for sure would really check your cable and connection from your battery. The hot lead and more importantly the ground that goes to the frame. If it is not clean and grounded real good, you will not even get a click. if you turn key on and hear nothing, it is for sure the connections from battery to ignition. Now, if you can turn on head lights and all that, that mean your getting power to your ignintion and battery is good, now what this means is the connections from your starter that go to the battery are not good. Check those real good. I am almost positive this is going to be a connection problem of starter and battery. keep me posted MIke

I'm having the same problem, connecting isn't the problem, its just that the mouse won't even respond to the batteries being put in. Bought fresh new batteries, still no luck :\
