Question about Kodak EasyShare C613 Digital Camera
Sorry, but your question is confusing. This appears to be your first FixYa question and nobody has answered it yet nor asked for a clarification, but your question appears to be querying an answer which you have already had.
I'm going to assume that you've simply made an error and want to know how to solve a problem with an obstructed lens on a digital compact camera (the heading suggests a Kodak EasyShare C613). Sorry if the assumption is incorrect, but if you have a stuck lens then you presumably want a fast answer.
Obstructed/stuck lenses are such a common fault that I hope you don't mind me pasting my stock generic answer below. No point in reinventing the wheel!
Stuck lenses are probably the most common reason that compact digital cameras get thrown away, but there's a fair chance of recovering use of your camera again
The fault is commonly caused by dirt or grit blocking the mechanism, or due to it having suffered a recent fall. Another common cause is that the camera was in a pocket or bag and the power button accidentally activated and tried to open the lens against resistance. The mechanism may have simply become dislodged or there may be parts which have broken.
If your camera is still under warranty and has definitely not been subject to misuse then contact the Kodak service department in your country to find out about a free repair. If the warranty has expired though a professional repair will far exceed the cost of replacing your camera. You will therefore have nothing to lose by trying to fix this yourself.
Please click here and you will be taken to an excellent article provided by the Camera Repair website. For the most part, you'll be guided on how to physically manipulate your camera to try and clear the fault.
