Camera lense is extended. When camera is turned on, it stays on for 2 seconds then power indicator light goes out. No buttons have any effect. If
I open and close the battery cover I can then turn on power again , but it has the same rusults as before. Sometimes if I keep repeating this cycle, there is a noise like the lense motor is turning as the camera turnes on.

The power button has two purposes explanable;
1. A firm press and hold would shut down the entire device, where would be common feature for the camera to perform a system check to include the lense functionalilty.
2. A gentle press and release of the same power button should capture a snap shot only after the camera has been powered on, by the similar process as pressing firmly the power button
Pressing firmly the power button would shut down camera completely after a system check if only the camera was on.
Pressing firmly the power button when the camera is off would turn on the device by performing a system check also.
The camera when powered on would have an indicator light of ready to capture snap shots.
The camera would autoshut down when left on for an extensive duration without capturing snaps.
The instance of such would generate a camera check once more before powering off completely
The lense adds to the cameras feature capabilities of acquiring images. a function of the lense is capture an impressive image where the mechanism of drawing closer to the object is made possible by a moveable lense. The Olympus FE-340 Digital camera is powered by a battery requiring sufficient energy for a snap shot. keep in mind that, the camera can perform without the lense. However, the device is designed to automatically responded whenever the lense is required.
1 a solution to the camera is with the source of energy in which instance batter power.
2.Dislogde the entire power area consisting of battery, check for improper installation; reinstall the battery in appropaitely noticing the installation indications of power supply. Cover the battery compartment properly, and charger afterwords.
1.Charge the battery for the entire duration known of a full charge.
2.Unplug thereafter when the full charge indicator is visible.
3.Try on the device for improvement in situation by taking photo snap shots
My co-worker brought me a C913 with the same problem. I took out the batteries, took out the SD card, played with the buttons... nothing. A web search was unfruitfull. For fun, when I turned it on, I grabbed and held the lens. The camera turned off but the lense stayed out. I turned on the camera, the lense stayed out and the camera WORKED! I turned it off, the lense docked properly. I turned it back on, it worked... Woohoo! Theory: Either the lense was slow at coming (binding) out or was not coming out far enough. The camera shut itself off because it wasn't fully extended in an alloted period of time. Hope it works for you. Glennster™
when i dropped my dx7630, a tiny plastic part broke that worked the
holdback spring for the battery. Kodak has a repair service, or a
referral service for repairs, but you have to send the camera in. i
sent it in. they emailed me to say it was not a repairable part and
didn't even ask if i wanted it back. luckily, i kept the memory chip. the C875 i bought was $100 cheaper and had 1M more pixels. good luck with your
natural light photography from now on. i think Kodak just figures you buy a new camera whenever anything goes wrong, it'll be better and cheaper anyway.
