Hi,

The internal mechanism is getting stuck, when you zoom out. The lens mechanism is stuck in between, and it forces the internal switch to shut off the camera. Just give a gentle tap on the sides of the camera and then switch on your camera. You won't be facing this kind of problem.

If you still face this problem, you need to take to service center to get it repaired.

Hope this helps.

When i open the camera it makes sound and shuts down even with new batteries It works fine when viewing photo.


Perhaps you should investigate if nothing is wrong with the lens barrel. If it got stuck in any way, and it can't move out, the camera goes in protection, to prevent more damage.
If you say you used new batteries, the must have been out. The most usually way to reset a camera, and recover from an error is to remove the battery for a few moments and then switching on again.

Purchased camera 7 days ago. Worked perfectly for 4 days. While experimenting indoors with some flash and focus settings, Camera froze. No respose from any control sufaces while there was some porcessing...


Hi,

This does not sound good for a brand new camera.

Looks like there could be some issue with the zoom function which got stuck.

I would suggest that you seek a replacement to avoid any potential problems later on.

Camera shuts down when 'zoom lens' is used.


Hi there please follow the steps and let me know the result.

1. Ensure batteries are fully charged & clean the battery connector point in side the battery compartment.

2. Look carefully between the lens and the camera body for any sand, dirt or any damaged etc.

3. Try turning the camera with the lens facing down and shake to dislodge anything stuck

4. Try removing batteries and memory card, wait 5 minutes and refit the battery only.

5. Now turn on camera( with out card ) and see ,if working then fix the memory card & again turn on the camera. If working then fine .
Otherwise format the memory card and fix back in camera again & try. Make sure before format the memory card take a
back up all photos in your computer then format. If no luck then reset or restore the camera setting by pressing Menu key for 2 sec ..
in not done the press both Menu & self time key for 2 - 4 sec.

When I zoom in my camera shuts off


Mine was doing the same thing and after chatting with Kodak Tech Support to no avail I wiped the lens barrel (the rings that slide in and out) with a paper towel dampened with a little alcohol and it started working again. There's a sensor that shuts down the camera if the lens can't move freely and apparently a film can build up on the rings that causes just enough friction to make it turn off. I then wiped it with a tiny bit of WD40 on the towel and it's working perfectly. Be very careful if you try this to not get anything on the glass lens itself, and don't use enough to soak the towel, just barely dampen it.

Digital camera


I had almost similar problems with my A10 from day one. The camera shuts down before the battery is depleted, most of the time while I was operating the zoomlens. I bought a new battery, but that didn't solve it. Later I decided to take it apart as a last option. As my suspicion was the zoomlens I took out two crews of the motor that operates it. Now the motor has a bit more space to move. It seemed to be too tight against the gears so it could cause an overload. After that it worked perfectly. I made pictures for hours without having the same fault again. Be carefull too make notes where all the tiny screws belong of the casing. And maybe it will be enough to just loosen the motorscrews, but leaving them out will not make it fall out of it's place. I hope someone can use this information.

Greetings, Ron Timmermans.

Strange mechanical sound from lens area


Cele, The noise you're hearing is perfectly normal. This generation camera uses a piezo electric focus mechanism to operate the lens. You will notice that the noise goes away if the camera is left alone for a moment while focused on a non moving object, this is because the focus adjustment is made and then the piezo circuit shuts down to conserve battery power. You should have no problems with this camera, it is very reliable. Hope this helps you. Joe Weibel customelectronics.org

Camera powers up but then shuts down


Check out this similar post - http://www.fixya.com/problems-solutions/t103765,p241282/Ricoh-Digital-Cameras.aspx In your case though, I would try to turn it on with playback mode selected on startup, to prevent the zoom from extending. This way you will know if the problem is connected to the zoom, or other mechanisms. In any case, if it's not a battery/battery door/card problem, you'll need to send it for repair, or find a shop that can handle it, and it's rarely a cheap repair. Good luck

Coolpix 8800 shuts down


Make sure to use good NiMH batteries. Another possiblity is a problem with the card. Borrow a card and see if it has any effect. check to see that the pins in the card slot are all aligned, none out of place. check that the card door and the battery door close firmly, with some pressure. The camera can shut down when it has a problem detecting that the doors are closed. When it does turn on, play with the zoom without taking pictures, zoom in and out, if during zoom the camera shuts down then you might have a lens problem, something is malfunctioning in the lens mechanism and the camera shuts down to prevent damage. Good luck
