Hello

The problem is that the lens has become stuck in the barrel. There are some DIY solutions you could try, but the probability is that you will have to get it fixed by a professional.

Use these at own risk as it may further damage the camera.

Firstly , try connecting your ac adapter or usb cable.

Try holding the shutter button while switching on the camera.

Look at the lens , and if some of the lens 'circles' is misaligned or not concentric then try wiggling it (while holding camera lens down).

Try gently pushing or pulling the lens when it extends but this is risky as it may cause the lens barrel to slip out of its guidance system.

Another way to do this is to place the camera lens down on a hard surface and then power it up. Be sure to use a soft cloth or something similar as to not scratch your lens or casing. Let the lens push the camera up and down a few times and sometimes the little resistance provided by the camera is enough to get things going again.

Try hitting your camera near the lens on the body with the soft tissue on the palm of your hand.

Other than that , I would take the camera to a repair center for a evaluation to see if it would cost more to repair than to replace the camera.

If it is still under warranty I would suggest you take it in before trying any of these steps and remove any off-brand batteries or accessories as some stores are really fussy about warranty repairs on camera's with non-brand accessories.

Hope the advise is useful. please do not hesitate to let me know if you need any further assistance.

Regards
Andrea

Kodak c513 lens loose and will not retract camera switches on displays lens error then switches off.


All I can tell you from my own experience, is that the lens mechanism got damaged in some way.

Nobody's fault I'm sure, but you need to take it to a camera repair depot.

*** Before doing that, please check the warranty period either from the manufacturer or the retailer.
If you used a Credit Card to purchase it, some companies offer an extended warranty.
It will be worth your while to find out before making any decisions.

did you try changing the settings on the dial on the top right of the camera? the dial is for different settings for different types of pictures, you would need to set the camera for daytime pics, sounds like it is set up for nighttime.

I had a friend that ran into the same problem, but his solution is not what I would recommend but it did work for him. He used sewing machine oil and applied a tiny amount less than a drop to the crevice of the camera body and the outer lens housing, his was stuck in the retracted position, and he got it going again without a problem.

Camera is saying: Lens Error 126,1,0,-6


This is probably THE single 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

I have the Kodak C513, My cameras lens is stuck, everytime I turn it on my lens will not come out and on the screen it says lens error 20e,1,0,0 please help


Sounds like impact. Try putting new Good batteries in. If that doesn't work, you can contact Kodak to see where the local "authorized" service center in your area is, I know of 2 in South Florida.

Easyshare c513 leans errors


NO don't buy another one. You can send it in for repair and it should only cost around 65.00 to have the lens replaced. I repair these all the time and it just take some time to have fixed. Or You can trade it in for a upgraded camera also. Upgrade you camera check out some of the offers out there. "There are places like mine that offer great deals".
