Question about Kodak EasyShare Z1275 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Lens stuck open after dropping.

I dropped my Kodak EasyShare Z1275 Digital on the floor when it was on with the lens open and now it is turned off with the lens stuck like it. When I turn it on there is a whiring noise and then the screen is blurry and then the camera turns it self off, with the lens still out.
Any ideas on how to help?

    I have a kodak easyshare Z1275 digital camera and the flash does not work all of the time and other times it does. I tried seeing if it was the batteries and it was not. Sometimes when the flash works it either does the first flash( and everything comes out bright) or the second flash( everything comes out dark or a black screen) other wise it works correctly, do you think you know what the problem is??

Sounds like your lens is out of alignment. Added to that something w/ the screen is affected by the lens. Safest way is to have a technician check it out. A short cut I take is to look at the lens carefully and see if there is something loose or how mis-aligned is the lens. Sometimes a slight nudge will get it working properly. But whether it starts to work or not, the lens is already misaligned and you may still have a problem taking clear pictures. So even with my short cut, I'd still suggest you bring it in for repairs. It's really not a good idea to do short cuts unless you have a budget problem. Take care of your camera and keep the strap around your neck at all times so you don't drop it again.

Lens stuck in the out position. will not take pictures


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 ... Unfortunately, many cameras that fall prey to this can only be corrected by professional repair. But, here are some things that you can do 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, they're worth a try.

CAMERA TURNS ON FOR A SPLIT SECOND THEN SHUTS OFF


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!

KODAK Z1275


I semi resolved the problem with my Kodak Z1275 with this suggestion; Step 1, making SURE the batteries are good. Then, position the camera with the lens pointed up or down (depending on stuck lens position, USE GRAVITY AS YOUR FRIEND) and gently tap on the lens just as you turn on/off the camera. You may have to do this several times before the camera will close the lens. From my research this camera has a faulty mechanism for the lens which causes the software to recognize a lens failure thus shutting down the camera. Poor designed lens mechanism! I now am using my camera again, but regularly have to remember to allow gravity to assist in lens opening (turning on) and lens closing (turning off) as well as occasionally giving it a light tap or in extreme cases lightly assisting the lens opening/closing. Hope that helps! Oh and I don't suggest buying another Kodak camera!

Error E45


Turn your camera on and smack the camera against your hand. The E45 error means your lens is stuck. The lens on my V603 was stuck open, when I smacked it against my hand it closed and now works fine. Give that a shot.

Kodak Easy Share Z1275 stuck lens


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.
