Question about Kodak EasyShare P850 Digital Camera
Hi - on my P850, when I turn it on, the flash pops up, and the camera sounds like it's doing something, but nothing else happens - the lens doesn't extend and the screen doen't come on.
Thanks - DH
I have exactly the same problem. However, I dropped the camera on the floor before it started acting up (it dropped no more than a foot). I can't believe this camera is that sensitive. The drop did not seem bad at all.
There is nothing we can do at this time, you cannot repair this by yourself the miniature motor that drives the lens in and out could be damaged at this time nor the shuter mechanism that drives the assy, is binded mechanically
if this is still under warranty you might want to send this unit asap.

The lens error is due to failure of the lens control system. You can remove battery and card replace battery and while switching on tap the lens hood on your hands so as to disengage any dirt or mechanism being struck.
It is also possible that the mechansim is struck .Use some high pressure jet air to blow between the lens to dislodge any sand particles struck inside. If none of these works then you can think of taking consensus with the service centre.
get estimate before you decide. It will be good to have it checked at any camera/Kodak service as you do not have to run around for spares.

The problem seems to be with your lens guide it is out of track so please follow the step below,
Try forcing the camera lens but be careful while doing this if something goes wrong your camera our lens can be damage
Turn off the camera. Place it on the back with the lens facing up and take a look at the spacing between the lens and the lens housing. If you notice that the gap is not even all the way around the lens, the problem should be easy to fix.
Simply - VERY GENTLY - press down the lens on the side where the gap is the biggest. You should hear a "click" as it pops back into place. Try powering the camera back on.
If the lens doesn't extend at all or it extends, and then retracts again, do the following. Turn the camera off. Take the camera in one hand and with the other gently take one part of the lens and gently move it round in a circular movement. Do so with both sections of the lens. You will hear a "click" as it pops back in place. Power the camera on.
If no luck then contact your Kodak service centre
