Return it under warranty. If the warranty has expired, you will probably be better off buying a new camera, which will be better than your old (at least a year old if the warranty has expired) one and cost less too.

In the meantime, there is nothing to lose by whacking the camera against a desk to see if you can free the lens. It doesn't work anyway, right? And it probably won't be economic to have it properly repaired, unless it is a high end model (you don't mention this).

I have a Kodak easyshare c183 camera but whenever I try to turn it on it says, lens obstructed and then turns off. How do I fix this?


Unfortunately, many cameras that fall prey to lens error problems can only be corrected by professional repair. But, here are some last resort troubleshooting steps that you can try that may correct it. They only seem to work for less than 40% of the lens errors, but if the camera is out of warranty (or repair cost approaches that of the camera), they're worth that try.

Lens Error


Lens errors are fairly common. Usually it's sand or grit interfering with the lens extension mechanism. Or the camera's been dropped with the lens extended. Or the camera has been powered on, but the lens had been blocked preventing its extension. Or the battery ran down with the lens extended ...

Whenever I turn on my camera it says LENS ERROR 2 but after a couple of seconds it dissapears and it works fine. How can I get rid of the lens error notice?


This is probably THE most common failure among digital cameras. There's a halfway chance of fixing it yourself, described here: http://camerarepair.blogspot.com/2007/12/fixing-lens-error-on-digital-camera.html

You must send camera in to be repaired.

If you don't have a warranty it will cost $100.
