Question about Cameras
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.
