    I have the same exact problem. No grinding noises, no error messages. Press on button, blue light comes on briefly, then turns off. Lens stuck in extended position and doesn't move. Willing to open up if someone tells me what to look for and fix.



    Thanks,

    When I press the power button on my Z1275, the lens extends and the green light blinks. No picture or message on the screen. The only way to turn it off is to take the batteries out, but the lens stay extended. When I put new batteries in and press the power button, the lens goes back in then extends again and the green light flashes again.

    I sent it in for warranty repair and it worked for a while (took pictures and downloaded fine two times). However, before I sent it in, it was doing all of the above and after a while of trying and pressing buttons, I couldn't get it to power up at all. The camera repair person replaced a fuse, as far as I could tell from the receipt. Maybe the two problems were unrelated? We got the camera in January.

    When I take a picture flash goes off but camera switches off and screen goes black although blue light stays on. Lens stays out. I have to switch off and on again then lens retracts.

    Same issue here. I even sent it for warranty repair twice, and got it back working the same (or worse).

    I have the same problem. I just got this today and it worked for about 30 mins. I put new batteries in and the same problem. The green light blinks and then it shuts down.

    I turned on the camera, lens popped out, light blinked and camera went off. Every time I try to turn it on the light blinks and I get nothing. The lens is stuck in the out position.

I have a Kodak 1275. Green light would go on the off and lens was stuck open. Now for solution that worked for me. Get a can of compressed air, like what you use for computer keyboards. Blow the compressed air all around your stuck open lens, not to fast and switch directions of where you blow air around stuck opened lens. Make sure batteries are fresh and fully charged. Tap your camera against the palm of your hand twice, not to hard or you may damage instead of jarring lens lose. Next lay your camera on a table lens facing up, push power button on so camera will try to auto focus and lens should reseat itself and lens should move freely. It doesn`t have to look dirty or dusty, little tiny particles can cause the lens to get stuck and shut off fast because it is a safety feature. If this does not work try plugging your camera into computer so the lcd screen does not try to go on , thus giving even more power to get your lens moving . Do not try to force it closed by pushing or twisting with your hand or you may cause damage that will cost as much as the camera to fix.

My Z1275 was off with the lens open. When I turned it on, the lens moved a little, the screen came on
for an instant, and then the camera off.

Here is what I did to "fix" it.

I turned it on and helped the lens (gently) close while it was moving. It closed and the camera came on.

It must have been dropped and slightly bent in such a way where the lens could not close.

Good Luck!

I have the same problem with my z1275. If your camera's on warranty, don't fool around.
I just went to the Kodak web site, filled out a form, quickly got an email reply with painless instructions of where and how to mail the camera. They mention a 2 week turn around from the time they receive the camera - not bad.

It has problem on the lens. Lens doesn't extend when transferring pictures that's why it works. Kodak cameras are designed to automatically shut-off when the lens is struggling to go in or out.

Follow step-by-step solution and repair on www.kodak.com/go/stepbystep if the guide did not resolve the issue proceed processing the camera for repair under the same website if it is still under in-warranty otherwise call Kodak @ 1800-235-6325 extn 1-12-2

Camera wont Turn On


Fixing your problem could be as simple as cleaning the battery contacts in the camera, or the solution could be a lot more complex and expensive. Here's a link to the Kodak Help Center - it provides a simple Q&A format to diagnose the problem and propose a solution.

Kodak Easy Share Z1275 stuck lens


**** a very common problem with most cameras. There hasn't been much of a solution for this problem except to try to wiggle the lens zoom while pushing and holding the power button.
Also make sure you have brand new batteries installed. Even the slightest dead battery will cause a problem.

KODAK M863 LENS STUCK


Here's what I did...Mine had the lens stuck out and would not power on. Just a green blinking for a second or two. Well, I tried twisting the lens ring closest to the camera while hitting the power button. It's kinda tricky to do...BUT, just keep at it. Mine was a $1 resale shop "find" and now it works. This worked for me. Maybe it will help you!
