Question about Kodak Easyshare M341 12.2MP Digital Camera with 3x Optical Zoom and 2.7-inch LCD

1 Answer

My Kodak Easy Share M341 Camera all of a sudden will not focus on an object. You can hear it trying to focus but it can't. If you do take a picutre anyway, it will be very blurry. Can't figure out how to fix this.

Hello

Thank you for using FIXYA!!!

This is a suggestion. If you do not feel comfortable trying it, you will need to take the unit to your nearest service centre. Feel free to let me know if you need any assistance.

The problem might be 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 centre 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.

You can also have a look at THIS link.

Hope the advise is useful. please do not hesitate to let me know if you need any further assistance. Also, please be so kind to let me know if you found this helpful.

Regards
Andrea

I have Easy Share M341 digital camera message says" internal memory full" I have SD disk in it too will not allow me to take pictkures What do you suggest?


If you want the camera to start writing to the SD card, you must first get rid of everything in the internal memory. Here's how...with no card in the camera, go into the menu and find "format" and follow the on-screen instructions to erase the internal memory. After that, your card should work properly.

I just recently about 10 mins i deleted all of my camera pictures im so sad that this happened if u can help thats great it is a kodak easy share m341


If you deleted them and did not format the card or take any more pictures, then the pictures are still on the card. You can first of all, take the card to a store like Walmart and insert it into one of their picture kiosk machines. Your pictures may show up. If they do, you can print them out or even make a CD of them. If they don't, then Google the words "photo recovery software". You will find software that can help you recover your pics. Some of them are expensive but others are free or at least free to try.

All of a sudden my Kodak Easyshare 530 will not transfer pictures to my computer, I have reinstalled software, still does not transfer. Can you help me?


Possible solutions:
Remember you need to turn the camera on when transferring.
Try a different USB outlet
Try a different cable
Try a different computer.
If all fails please contact KODAK in order to arrange a repair or order a new cable. Remember your USB cable is covered under the same warranty as your camera, so remember your serial number when calling:
