Question about Kodak EasyShare M853 Digital Camera
We recently purchased one of these cameras and after only a short time we're having a major problem with it. The inner lens has only partly retracted and is stuck and won't fully retract. The camera is not not useable because of this problem...keeps telling me there is a "lens error 122,1,0,0".
Through my own research I have found out this is a common fault with this model and would like to know what options Kodak offer with regards to fixing or replacing the camera?
Margaret :) Lens is stuck and will not open or retract. When turned on I get the same
lens error 122,1,0,0. Please help.
Try helping the camera to retract using your fingers while you turn camera off, try also helping lens to full extent if they don't.if you do not succeed in this simple way the camera lens must be taken apart and reassembled at a repair shop.

My daughter's phone got slept on. Lens was not square and would not retract. After reading all the stories of woe I suspected it was alost cause. I pushed on the bigger piece of the lens till it clicked and it immediately closed up and worked no problem. If you still have warrantee let Kodak look after it, if not then brute force did work. Just push up in the direction it looks like it needs to go.

When I recieved this error message after dropping my camera, I took a thin bladed knife and gently went around the outer and inner lense until it caught. Normally the lense will stick because it is bent from the drop. If you are gentle you can bend it back without damaging the screen.

This is probably THE most common failure among digital cameras. There's a halfway chance of fixing it yourself, described here: http://camerarepair.blogspot.com/2007/12/fixing-lens-error-on-digital-camera.html
