Question about Kodak EasyShare V1073 Digital Camera

1 Answer

I'm having a problem with my Kodak V1073 camera. It has frozen and the lens won't close. I re-charged the battery and also tried taking out the battery and plugging into the wall socket but still won't turn back on. What else can I do?

Your camera most likely 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. Although the article mentions Canon a few times, the advice applies equally to all cameras with lens errors and is not model-specific.

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

Kodak Camera DX 6490 is frozen in the open position and will not respond...open


Does not look good at all. Try this:
remove the battery. Charge the battery, or place another charged battery. Close the battery cover and switch the camera on.
I hope it now will retract the lens.
Most of the time you only can manage to freeze a camera with the lens in that position, when you remove the battery. That is unwise, because the camera does not know in what position the lens is, when you place the battery and switch on.
If the camera was switched out correctly and it could not retract the lens, it could be there is a mechanical problem in the lens barrel, or the motor (steering) is defect.
Sometimes camera's just die too.
I wide you luck while reviving your camera.

Opens lens then switch's off, /fully charged


It could be the battery contacts or the battery itself that is faulty: 1. Clean the battery contacts. a. Remove the battery/batteries and the memory card from your camera, then wipe the battery contacts with a soft, clean cloth. b. Reinstall the battery/batteries into your camera. Please make sure that you are installing a fresh/ fully charged battery c. Turn the camera on. 2. Without the memory card, turn your camera on. (If it works then it?s your memory card that is faulty) 3. Please test with the a different battery If you do not have access to another battery Try these steps instead: Please take the battery out of the camera. b. Insert the charger into the unit from the main socket and turn the camera on. If the camera works you will need to replace the battery. If you camera doesn?t switch on you will need to order a no power repair with KODAK or a new cable.

My camera shuts off when I my zoom is nearly halfway through


Make sure your batter is fully charged, and is not bad. This kind of reaction can happen with a weak battery or partly charged.
If that is not it, then the camera needs repair.

Kodak v1073 lens cover won't open when camera is turned on


Remove the batteries and clean the battery contacts inside the camera with a soft cloth (a heavy buildup on the contacts may require cleaning with a fine wire brush, steel wool, or sandpaper). Remove any residue that the cleaning leaves in the camera, and then reinstall the batteries. This clears most power-on problems, but if yours persists, check the Kodak troubleshooting guide at:

No matter how long I charge my Kodak V1073, it just says insufficient batter when I turn it on. I'm lucky to take one picture before the battery dies.


If you just recently purchased this camera, please contact or call the Kodak help line. You may have received a battery that won't charge. Batteries need a charge at least once a month to keep them at maximum preformance. Leaving the camera battery uncharged for long periods of time can cause the battery to fail sooner than it should. If you do need to set aside your camera for a long period of time, put a full charge to it and then remove it from the camera. Most cameras (video cameras included), even if they are turned off, can trickle the charge down on your battery.
