Your camera has a lens error, this is 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.

If the link doesn't work then cut and paste the following address into your browser:-

Testimonial: "The link would have been more helpful if it had related to my Kodak EasyShare at all but since it was strictly geared towards a Canon, it didn't"

    Thanks for the feedback.

    Although the article mentions Canon it is definitely not Canon-specific. The 20e,1,0,0 error on Kodak is a lens error with exactly the same options for DIY repair as detailed in the article. Unfortunately, the fault isn't always user fixable and as my answer clearly states a professional repair often makes no financial sense.

    I'm sorry that you were unable to repair your camera on this occasion, but I disagree that a few mentions of a different brand made the entire answer irrelevant. I sincerely hope that you are able to find an alternative solution which will assist you.

    My lens is stuck in and not out, too which made the article not very helpful for my particular problem. I am grateful for your help and both your information and that of the link's is very good, it just doesn't help me in any way, shape, or form. Time to get a new camera! lol

Lens Errors are pesty things that really mess up us enjoying our digital cameras.
They are however fixable!
Fix your camera at; http://www.teleplancamerarepair.com/Kodak_EasyShare_C743
They are caused by anything from bad batteries, lack of charging the battery appropriately, dust entering the lens mechanism, the camera taking a fall or impact too!

Lens error, restart camera.


I had the same problem with my powershot and with the batteries going bad super fast. The way to fix it is to empty your memory card of all pictures then put it back in the camera blank. That should take care of the problem and should pro;long your battery life as well.

Lens will not extend


Defective mechanism, a stucked mechanism is present. camcorder are smart it can detects error and shuts down itself for safety. earlier models dominoes the defect if the user is not quick enough to react when something goes wrong with the camera. You need professional service to fix it.
