If camera doesnt work after the screen turns off, then the camera is haveing a hard time formating the card, I would recommend formating it in a pc. or takeing the camera to be checked for faults: advancecamera.com/repair/

Hope helps.

Lens on my S7000 doesn't retract when switched off - now permanently extended - and camera dead


This is going to require service / repair at the shop, not something you will be able to correct.

My kodak m341 won't turn on......when you press the on button, the lens comes out, then goes staight back in. The screen comes on for a split second when the lens comes out. that is all it will...


Lens errors are fairly common. Usually it's sand or grit interfering with the lens extension mechanism. Or the camera's been dropped with the lens extended. Or the camera has been powered on, but the lens had been blocked preventing its extension. Or the battery ran down with the lens extended ...Here are some troubleshooting steps that you can try that may (or may not) correct it. They only seem to work for less than 40% of the lens errors, but if the camera is out of warranty (or repair cost approaches that of the camera), they're worth that try. Some of the later steps do involve some risk to the camera, so carefully weigh your options before deciding to conduct them:

The lens will not come out


Hi there.
Face the camera towards the floor and firmly tap the back of the camera while turning it on, this should hopefully free the lens so it can open, make sure that the batteries are fully charged or at least new.

Good luck and thamks for using FixYa!!

The shutter is stuck on my vivitar 3746 and won't turn on or respond in any way. what can i do?


This always happens on mine when the batteries are low or taking them out while lens is extended. What I had to do was take it apart and manually wind back in the lens via the gears that extend it. Hope this helps. Otherwise the camera is rendered useless.
