    I also have the same problem, I was in the middle of taking a picture when all of a sudden everything went black. I attempted to turn the camera back on, but it didn't do anything, and the lens were still out so I was thinking the batteries were bad. I put in brand new batteries, and the camera won't turn on. The green light will flicker and if I put it close to my ear I can hear a slight clicking noise, like it's trying but it just won't come on.

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.

I was in a rush to change batteries and opend the battery compartment befor the lens comleatly retracted and shut off. Now the lens is parchualy open and wont turn on. What do I do?


Don't force it what ever you do! The slightest push in the wrong direction will not only damage the motor, but put you lens out of alignment.
Try this
With the batteries IN, press and hold the power button for at least 10secs. The diagnosis phase will hopefully kick in and reset the camera. I'm not familiar with your model, but I remember one of the coolpix models had a override function (ON+SHUTTER) or something like that

Lens wont retract on power off.


Look at the battery near the contacts there is a little rectangle. If it's white then make sure all contacts are very clean. You can clean them with a q-tip dipped in rubbing alcohol. Clean all contacts, charger, battery and battery compartment on camera. If it's pink, you need a new battery.It has gotten moisture inside. Not your fault, this can happen from something as simple as jogging with it in your shirt pocket, yes it's true.

Hi-- my canon SX110 won't switch on properly. it keeps telling me there's a lens error and to restart. when this has happened in the past, i've just switched it off and then on again and it's worked. not...


Try removing and replacing batteries to reset the camera. Ensure that batteries are fully charged.

If that does not clear the problem, then the lens error is usually caused by mechanical faults concerning lens assembly. This happens because there is dirt inside the lens (sand dust), or one part in the lens assembly is bad or went out of place.
Because of this he lens cannot extend or retract fully, the error is detected and lens error is returned.

Sometimes this can be fixed playing with the lens during extraction or retraction to help the lens asset getting back to normal.
If if does not extend tapping gently the back of the camera, and if it does not retract helping lens back in while turning camera respectively on and off.

More often the camera lens must be disassembled and re-assembled by a technician to fix the problem.

Lens wil not retract after battery died


It takes power for the Lens to retract. Recharge or replace batteries to get the lens to retract.

Buzzing sound, wont come on!


Don't try and manually push in the lens at first...the buzzing is a warning letting you know that something is wrong with the camera. By accidently removing the batteries during shut down you interupted the shut down sequence. Try and turn on the camera and immediately press the play button on the back. This should reset the camera. If not and if you are under warranty it needs to be serviced. If you are not under warranty then you can try and push the lens down. Don't use a lot of force but try and gently do it.
