Hello

The problem is that the lens has become stuck in the barrel. 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 camera lenes wont stay open


Usually the lens closing is a sign that the battery is dying. If there's not much power left for the camera, it will first close the lens so it's protected before powering down. Make sure you have fresh batteries, fully charged. If the battery is going bad it may not hold a charge for very long but appear to be charged when you first intall it.

My kodak Easyshare M340 10.2 MP lens will go out but it stops when it is out and won't go back in.


Please make sure that your battery is fully charged. Sometimes the camera will not function properly without enough battery power.
If this isnt a problem, check to be sure these isn't and debris between the circular cuffs of the expandable lens. Last, being very carefully not to push to hard, you can give it a weak budge back in if it happen to fall out of the tracks/sprocket.
Hope this helps-

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

My Kodak Easy Share M340 is having a problem. When I turn in on the lens opens and hen closes right away.


Make sure that you are installing a fresh/ full charge battery
Here are the steps:
1. Make sure you will install a new or fully charged battery/batteries into your camera.
2. Clean the battery contacts.
a. Remove the battery/batteries and the memory card from your camera, then wipe the battery contacts with a soft, clean cloth.
b. Reinstall the battery/batteries into your camera
3. Without the memory card,turn on your camera.
4. Pls test with an alt. batt.
If you do not have access to a dif. battery.
Pls. take the batt out of the camera. Insert the charger into the unit from the main socket and turn the camera on. If the camera works you will need to replace the batt. If not you will need to order a No power repair.
