Question about Kodak EasyShare DX4330 Digital Camera
After researching this problem, all I could find out is that the error occurs when the camera doesn't respond and initialize correctly. One person had an estimate of between $80 - $100, and another was quoted $135, and they had it fixed...and Kodac changed out the main circuit board to fix it.
There are mainly two things that cause a camera not to initialize correctly: a power problem (low battery, etc.) and a stuck lens.
There are a couple of good websites I found that describe what you can try to fix these problems, and here they are:
This last blog is titled "lens error", but applies also to "stuck" lens issues.
I would try the suggestions in those blogs- they say about half the cameras can be fixed trying their suggestions.
Wish I had better news- a lot of people have had problems with this issue.
Good luck, though, and hope this helps, and thanks for using FixYa.

THe issue of the camera shutting down and the lens Extending is an internal malfunction. UNited Camera Repair has been able to fix this, at least for me, they did. They replaced the main board and the camera worked when I got it back. Otherwise, if you dont want to spend the money, its a gonner..

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.
