Camera immediately turns off after being turned on

Camera turns off immediately after being turned on. Zoom lens will move in or out depending on original position, and camera beeps, then turns off. Changing batteries has no affect. Lots of people having the same problem.

I have owned three Kodak cameras, the last and recent one being the M1063. They all three developed the same problem within two months of ownership....."zoom lens will move in or out depending on original position(gets stuck in out position), and camera beeps, then turns off."

It was always sand/dirt/dust in the zoom section.

Hold the camera in your right hand, as if you are going to take a picture and gently tap the left side of camera against the hard, lower part of your palm.

You might have to do it a couple of times and you might have to be a little more than gentle. Just don't bang it hard directly on the LCD screen, just the left edge.

It always works for me. Good luck.

Spraying compressed air around the lens worked for me.

If the battery is new, be sure to charge it for AT LEAST 15 hours, even if the charge light indicates it's already charged. If the battery is a couple years old, it's probably reached the end of it's life - time to replace the battery. Use name-brand batteries for the best life. Please leave feedback if this helps.

Can you use the twist-barrell zoom lens on a Sony DSLR camera (or any DSLR) when the camera is set to auto-focus? I've been told that this damages the gears in the lens if you do. Thanks for your help.


You can zoom completely independent of the focus.

Some lenses immediately override the autofocus when it senses you turning the manual focus ring. Other lenses don't, and you can damage the lens by forcing it. It depends on the lens, so you'll have to consult the documentation for the specific lens.

My Casio Exilim EX-Z80 wont turn on


The lens barrels are jamming someplace. wen the camera moves the lens out immediately pop out the battery so that it stays and then turn the zoom from the outer most barrel in the direction it comes out side. Do not force it too much. If that works fine other wise take it to the service center

FE-280 Lens Blurry Photos and no zoom turns off


You have a bad lens. Unless the camera is in warranty the cost of repairing the lens is higher than the value of your camera. The strange noise you hear is the lens motor trying to move the lens. One solution is to blow compressed air around the lens. Sometimes dust and dirt may jam the lens.

Turns off right away


hi...ensure that the camera is turned on. If applicable, ensure the lens cover has been removed before taking pictures. the LCD backlight is turned on by pressing the DISPLAY button several times until the screen appears. Depending on the camera model, the DISPLAY button may be labeled as DISP or with a display icon. This button could be a standalone button or it depends upon the camera model.....
If operating the camera with a battery, ensure the battery is fully charged.
Ensure the battery is inserted properly in the camera.
If operating the camera with the power adapter, ensure it is plugged into a working AC outlet.
Ensure no Audio/Video (A/V) cables are connected for viewing pictures on a TV; the LCD screen will not display when an A/V cable is connected.
Perform a reset procedure on the camera....

Zoom Error?


Dirt in the focus motor drive gears right behind the lens at the front.
It's a **** design (my opinion). The lens at the front moves in and out depending on your zoom level. It can come right out of the lens barrell at the front. So, if it can come out, dirt can get in. and it's a pig to clean out and reset. Bin it or sell for parts.

Olympus C-3000 Zoom telescoping lens problem


The small gears that link the viewfinder and lens may be out of sync. If you are a technical person, you can remove the frontcover, first taking off the topcover, (one screw is hidden under the mode dial). Power up the camera and remove the batteries when the lens is fully extended. BE CAREFUL NOT TO TOUCH THE CAPACITOR! Gently lift the viewfinder and move the viewfinder gear one tooth. It will probably only move one way. Put the batteries back in and try the lens. If this does not solve the problem, you may need to replace the lens or viewfinder.
