Hi-
When you say 'fully charged', is it the original battery from the camera, or another type of battery?
The description you give indicates one of three possible issues:
1. Your old battery can no longer hold a sufficient charge and though it can give enough to show activity (blue light), it may not hold enough to run the device. You may need to replace it > should be available at most retailers that sell Kodak cameras.
2. Wrong type of battery used. Check to see what type of battery the camera requires: NiCad, Lithium, etc. are all different, and not all can be used in these cameras. It's not just about the battery size.
3. Did you drop it? If so, the threads for the lense may have been damaged, not allwing it to eject from the body.
Since you bought a Kodak, you are lucky. If options 1 or 2 do not fix the problem, contact Kodak and they will usually take care of you.
Good luck!

When battery is put in red led in front turns on but lens will not extend or turn on it is an kodak easy share c763


hi...
The transmission system that moves the lens in and out has a problem with it's gears. There is most likely a gear or an actuator that has fallen out of alignment and is getting stuck at a certain point as the lens comes in/out.There is some disturbacnce of the lens arrangement that is preventing the lens from coming in/out.Any of these symptoms above could trigger the camera to shut itself off to protect itself from further damage.

thank u
rate me!!!

I have had problems with mine for quite some time. My last 2 vacations involved me taking the batteries out everytime between pictures and rubbing their ends, sometimes that would help.
