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

My Kodak EasyShare CX7430 Digital Camera's flash is working, but the picture's background is dark. So, there is no difference even if the we use flash or not. Please help me to solve this issue. Thanks In...


I assume there's a subject in the foreground you want illuminated with the flash?

The light output from the flash falls off with the square of the distance. An object twice as far from the camera only receives a quarter as much light. If you want your foreground subject illuminated then the background won't get much light. In order to get both the foreground and background illuminated the same, turn off the flash. This will probably require you to put the camera on a tripod or other stable support.

You might also want to consider using the Night mode. This mode uses a slow shutter speed to allow the background to illuminate, then fires the flash to illuminate the subject. See http://resources.kodak.com/support/shtml/en/manuals/urg00206/urg00206c2s3.shtml

I have a kodak Z1485 IS, i have changed the batteries and it still doesnt want to work. When it turn it on the blue light flashes & then the lense comes out and gets stuck. I even tried to plug it into...


I had a similar problem. Make sure you are using the type of battery specified by the manufacturer. I was using alkaline batteries, switched to the type of battery shown on the battery cover and my camera works great.

I have Kodak Easy Share CX7430. I have put in new


Enilra, sounds to me like you might have the button that takes the photo stuck in the down position. Without turning on the power, put you finger on the button and press down on it while you move wiggle your finger around. Get a good look at the button and see if You Can See If The Button is returning to the UP Position. Withour seeing your camera in person this would be my guess.

Kodak Error B03


Either your PCB board is damaged, your batteries are old, or your AC adapter is providing higher voltage than the required 3 volts.

Dark pictures from kodak cx7430


Is your camera set to auto mode? I'm not sure if the CX7430 has manual settings or not, but try making sure its on auto.
Its possible the lens or the CCD (the device responsible for actually taking the photo) is going bad.

This guy - Darntoothysam has a CCD assembly as a low cost fix, 15 dollars.
