When i turn my camera on, its a blank screen with


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 ...

Here are some things that you can do to try to correct it. They only seem to work for less than 50% of the lens errors, but if the camera is out of warranty, they're worth a try.

Black screen when camera is turned on


hi.. I also had this problem with canon ixus 75. i took it to the service center and they just knocked its lens(lightly) when it was on ON mode, then suddenly the screen started working.
But he said that u should use it on regular basis for few days and if the problem occurs again. then we will have to change the sensor, I think he said sensor or something like that.

Kodak Z1285 Won't Turn On?


HAd exactly the same issue! You turn on the camera, lense comes out then the screen goes black (turns off)
The blue light stays on and the only way to get it to turn off is to take out the batteries.

Next time you turn on the device, the blue light comes on and the green led flashes, sometimes it powers down and other times the blue light stays on but you have no screen still. The lense stays out.

I tried the "tap" it approach and it now works fine! My suggestion has always been, if it don't work, kick it!! why didn't I try this with this camera firstly instead of trying all sorts of different button combinations to see if there was some sort of hard reset for it?

Thanks for the advice everyone and happy snapping!! :)

My polaroid i633 won't work!


YOur camera is looking for verification that the lens is extending. Once it sees the lens has extended when you power on, the sensors in the lens tell the Operating system that the lens is Ok.
If it does NOT see verification from the lens, it shuts down. Never force your lens back in. You may have to take the camera apart to reset the lens. you do this by removing the Zoom gear drive assembly and free you lens up by hand. 1 grain of sand or grit is like a Monkey Wrench in a Gear cog. Clear the obstruction with a can of compressed air, and work the lens with your hand. once you can that put it all back together and it should work.

It is possible you have the display turned off... Some cameras allow you to do this to save battery.

Turning camera on


Take it back to where you got it or send it to Kodak because this should be a warranty issue. I repair these camera's all the time and it should like 1 of 2 things main controller is not making proper connection or a cold solder joint and the connection is intermediately connection making it work once in a while I hope this help you decide on what to do.
