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

Our Kodak easyshare z710 got water on it. Any hope for it working again? Have tried drying it out overnight but nothing happens so far.


Here's a last chance option:

Take as much of the device apart as possible: remove battery, memory cards, lenses. Bury the device in a bowl of rice and leave overnight. Cross your fingers.

Hope it works!

HELP!! I am having a real Kodak moment. I have a Kodak M883, The wall charger says the battery is full but when you put the battery in the camera the camera turns on, the lense extends, battery reads...


Hello :

It seems that the battery is dead or the battery base is rusty or there's isolation stuff on it . Try to clean the base first . If that didn't help , then I recommend you to replace the battery .

good luck .

Dead batteries when fully charged


Does it work with "no batteries" - only plugged into power source? check your usb cable by trying to power up something else.

Kodak EasyShare Z710 - Lens won't retract or close


I too had the same problem. We were told we were using the wrong bateries, so we made sure that we used the correct ones, and it happened again and now the warranty is out and I can't send it to be fixed. If anyone has any idea what the problem is, please email me at admrlkirk1@aol.com.

Thanks

the problem is with the power - the lens being stuck out is a side effect

if there's enough/right power - the lens would retract if you shut if off. it shuts back off by itself that's why it won't retract and power is not sufficient for the lens lens to go back in

if your getting a red light, that means it's not totally dead
are you using alkalines?
the response of the cam towards an alkaline batt is very upredictable, sometimes it would take 30 pics, 10, 2, sometimes it won't even come on, just a blinking light

please use lithium batteries or ni-mh

if you are already usign a new set of lithium and it's doing the same thing, please arrange repair through www.kodak.com/go/itg

Kodak easy share z612 will not turn on to take a picture


When the battery dies, usually the camera will retract the lens if possible. If the battery is so dead the lens can not retract, I would recommend trying to charge or change the battery. Or try to turn the camera on, and then manually shutting it off if you can.
