I have a kodak easyshare z1275 digital camera that will not turn on with any of the recommended batteries. Another problem is that the zoom lens is completely stretched and as i can't turn the camra on it won't go back in.
PROBLEM - Camera will not turn on at all regardless of battery used. Happened after about 8 months of use. Kodak instructed me to send the camera in of warranty repair. MCU was replaced. The unfortunate thing is that I have the same problem again, 7 months later and I am guessing it is not a warranty repair this time.

Camera does not turn on. ■ Install new batteries (see page 1). ■ Charge rechargeable batteries. Camera does not turn off. ■ Remove the battery, then reinsert or replace it. If the camera still does not function, visit www.kodak.com/go/z1275support, www.kodak.com/go/z1285support and select Interactive Troubleshooting & Repairs.
If the lens doesn't retract on most digital camera the camera also will not turn ON. It is connection or wiring between camera power and camera lens.
What Kodak Rep will ask you to do are: 1. Remove the battery and the memory card of the camera 2. Check if your using a recommended battery and if its new or fully charge. batteries for Z1275 are Ni-MH rechargeable; CRV3 Lithium; 2AA Lithium 3. Insert the batteries back in the camera in correctly 4. Set the camera in Auto mode (its the camera icon on the dialing mode of the camera) 5. Try to turn it ON
If still will not turn ON and the lens will not retract 6. If your using a rechargeable battery Kodak Rep will ask you to charge the battery until its fully charge.
If your using a disposable battery they will ask you to try to use a new battery out from the box. After all those steps still the camera failed to work, it will be send for repair. The number of the Kodak support line is 1 800 235 6325 (23KODAK)
Remove the batteries and clean the battery contacts inside the camera
with a soft cloth (a heavy buildup on the contacts may require cleaning
with a fine wire brush, steel wool, or sandpaper). Remove any residue
that the cleaning leaves in the camera, and then reinstall the
batteries. This clears most power-on problems, but if yours persists,
check the Kodak troubleshooting guide at:
Though I'm not sure how to solve this problem, I don't recommend using the program for downloading pictures at all, it's unecessary and slower. Without it, you can treat your camera the same as any other USB drive - open the camera drive as you do any other folder, and drag/drop or copy/paste picture files off of it.
