Camera wobn't turn on & lens stuck in out position

I was using my camera the other night with fully charged batteries, suddenly it turned off with the lens stuck in the outward position. Now absolutely nothing will work. Camera will not turn on, lens won't go back in, nothing happens no matter what I do. Tried recharging my batteries and using brand new different batteries, and nothing works.

I've never seen this happen before. Usually when it turns off, the lens goes in at least.

Can you help?

Apparently the problem with my camera shutting down and the lens staying out, was the rechargeable batteries I was using. They basically lkicked the bucket, and were no longer working., I bought a new set of lithium batteries and the camera is working fine now.

This normally means the camera has experienced some shock, I had the same problem with mine after some shaking (long story).


What I done was spray silicone on the lens plastic cover (don't get it on lens) and then move it around (quite hard) and tap it. Hopefully you can free it to as good as it was.

Not sure if it's the motor, dirt or mis alignment but it done the trick (just).

Canon DSLR will not turn on


Hi there,There are a few things we can try/check here!
1.Turn the camera OFF. Remove the battery and clean the contacts (shiney metal strips) on the battery.2. Remove the lens and clean the lens contacts.3. If you have a body cap, put it on the camera (no lens, just to keep dust out right now).4. Reinstall the fully charged battery and turn on the camera.
It should start up. If so, turn it back off and reinstall the lens.
Also, be sure to check all the doors/hinges on the body. These are found on the battery and the memory card. They have electrical contacts on them that need be to be fully closed.
If possible, try a different battery (a friends, or take it to your friendly neighbourhood camera shop).
Hope it turns back on!

My camera will not stay on is off and stuck with lens out


If the lens doesn't retract on most digital camera the camera also will not turn ON. It is connection or wiring between camera power and camera lens.
What Kodak Rep will ask you to do are:
1. Remove the battery and the memory card of the camera
2. Check if your using a recommended battery and if its new or fully charge. batteries for Z1275 are Ni-MH rechargeable; CRV3 Lithium; 2AA Lithium
3. Insert the batteries back in the camera in correctly
4. Set the camera in Auto mode (its the camera icon on the dialing mode of the camera)
5. Try to turn it ON
If still will not turn ON and the lens will not retract
6. If your using a rechargeable battery Kodak Rep will ask you to charge the battery until its fully charge.
If your using a disposable battery they will ask you to try to use a new battery out from the box.
After all those steps still the camera failed to work, it will be send for repair. The number of the Kodak support line is 1 800 235 6325 (23KODAK)
