Question about Kodak EasyShare Z1275 Digital Camera
I turn it on the green light blinks for a second then it turns off. The lens is stuck out and wont go back in. Before it got stuck out it would turn on for a second and the lens came out a little bit then shut off until the lens was all the way out now it wont do anything but blink the green light and shut off.
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.

I took the back off with 7 screws. moved the lens back slightly and moved everything forward nice and tight.. gor a small safety clip cleaned around above the lens not touching it,, took the memory card out and powered it on.. it showed the picture through the view and the lens went back in.. good luck ! like my bizzness page :) page. www.facebook.com/diamondinkoc if it worked!!!

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.

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.
