Hi,

Remove the batteries from the camera, wait for 10 minutes, then put them back in and turn the camera on. If this does not work then try the compressed air. With a fine tip blow off the gun, and dry compressed air set the tip between the lens turret and the camera body and turn on the air while moving the tip around a the lens. It should remove all dust and sand. Turn the camera on and it should function as fine.

Secondly give a gentle tap on the sides of the camera and then switch on your camera, you will not get this error message as the internal mechanism which is stuck and causing this problem gets working properly.

If you still face the problem, then the helical threads inside the camera probably got bent to the point that it won't work anymore.

You need to get repaired.

Hope this helps.

Shane

My camera lens is stuck. I turned it on, it ran out of battery, it turned off, the lens stayed open, put new batteries in (positively the right way), turned on, blank screen, lens won't shut.


Your problem may be due to corrosion on the battery contacts inside the camera which can prevent the full power of the batteries from flowing into the camera. Try this free fix before you do anything else: remove the batteries and wipe the camera contacts firmly with a dry cloth (heavy corrosion may require cleaning with a wire brush, steel wool, or sandpaper). Remove any residue that may have fallen into the battery compartment during cleaning, then wipe both ends of the batteries and place them back in the camera. This cleaning clears the problem about 90% of the time. If it doesn't work for you, the camera may have a problem that requires professional repair.

If this response helps, please take a moment to post a rating for me. "Very Helpful" would be appreciated.

Lens is stuck in an open position, wont open or close.


Was The camera drop? If yes it means the lens is already defective

If No:

Are you using the recommended battery KODAK Li-Ion Rechargeable Digital Camera Battery KLIC-7001? If yes clean the 3 metal contucts of the battery and then make sure to fully charge the battery. then Turn On the camera

You can also try to Turn On the camera using a 5V AC adaptor. Now if this solution did not solve it means the gear of your camera is defective. You need to call kodak and have it repair Toll Free 1 800 235 6325 ext 12

Kodak v803 wont turn on


i had the same problem, if you try to turn the lens in as if you turning a dile, the lens will go back in manually once you have the lens completly in again, as if the camera is switched off, then turn the camera back on at the power button and the camera will operate as normal, this worked for me i hope it works for you too.
