Move the camera in an up/down motion

When i move the camera in an up/down motion (gently) there is noticeable feeling of something loose or knocking slightly. I presume its the extending lens and wondered if this is typical for this camera?

Re: Move the camera in an up/down motion

What you call a "knocking" is the lens element used by the optical stabilizer. This element is in the middle of the lens and it's suspended in magnetically when the camera is powered. The lens element itself shifts up/down and left to right, shifting the image projected on the CCD. This "knocking" or "rattle" is normal.

My kodak easy share cameras zoom lens is not retracting so the camera is not turning on


When a lens got stuck, by whatever reason, the camera shuts down to prevent further damage to the lens construction. If you can't move the lens at all. PLEASE DON'T APPLAY ANY FORCE TO THE LENS, just feel, try to find out what is holding the lens. If you can't see anything, the defect can be on the inside. This can't be changed easy. I don't believe in shock therapy, because you could help the lens to move once, but when something is wrong, it will happen again and the damage will add up.
But perhaps your camera is not turning on and that is why the lens does not move?
Did you try recharging the battery? And check if the battery has enough power?
Try that first.

I have a Nikon camera and one of the memory card slings is bent! Is this fixable?! please say yes :(


SOMETIMES, they can be straightened out with a thin, hard probe, something like a dental tool. They are available at most electronics and radio shops. DON'T use the sharp side, put the curved side against the surface you need to move and GENTLY rub the tool in a lengthwise motion, to iron out the bent area. It might take a while but it does work. It is called burnishing. (Polishing with a piece of polished metal).

Hi,


The problem seems to be with your lens guide it is out of track so please follow the step below,
Try forcing the camera lens but be careful while doing this if something goes wrong your camera our lens can be damage

Turn off the camera. Place it on the back with the lens facing up and take a look at the spacing between the lens and the lens housing. If you notice that the gap is not even all the way around the lens, the problem should be easy to fix.

Simply - VERY GENTLY - press down the lens on the side where the gap is the biggest. You should hear a "click" as it pops back into place. Try powering the camera back on.

If the lens doesn't extend at all or it extends, and then retracts again, do the following. Turn the camera off. Take the camera in one hand and with the other gently take one part of the lens and gently move it round in a circular movement. Do so with both sections of the lens. You will hear a "click" as it pops back in place. Power the camera on.

If no luck then contact your Kodak service centre

Thank You

Screen is black when i attempt to take pic


Hi,
Move all the pictures to the camera memory card from your internal memory. Since you have to open the camera, the pictures will be lost otherwise. Save your pictures. If you do not have a memory card, transfer all the pictures to your computer.
Remove batteries from the camera.

Purchase a replacement LCD screen, specific to your camera. These replacement screens can usually be purchased directly from Canon or from a camera resale shop. Auction websites should also carry LCD screens specific for these cameras. Use the mini screwdriver to remove the four screws from the back of the camera. Be careful with this step since the screws are tiny. Take the back cover of the camera off carefully. Inside the camera, there is a piece of foam that supports the LCD screen. Do not remove the foam. Set the bottom portion of the camera to the side.


Turn the top portion of the camera so it is facing upward. Notice how there are clips holding the LCD screen in place. Carefully lift these clips up and remove the broken LCD screen. The screen clips are extremely fragile and break easily if they are lifted too quickly. A gentle touch is key.Place the new screen down gently and replace the clips. Gently dust the screen so fingerprints are removed.Turn the top portion of the camera down so the screen is pointing down. Place this on top of the foam padding. Turn the screws carefully. The best way to screw the back of the camera in place is to first screw in one corner, move to the corner that is diagonally across and turn that screw. Repeat for the other two screws.Replace the batteries. Turn the camera on and see if it is function.

Thank you !!

Turns on but turns right back off


It might be a lense problem. Dirt and things get stuck in the lense real easily. hold the lense while you tuen it on and when it turns off hold the lens out.. wiggle it gently while turning it upside down... tap it gently upside down.... or blow int he lens to try and get the dirt disloged.

Can not trurn camera off!


Does your on/off button appear to be stuck? Might there be any dirt under it? if you gently shake the camera, does the button appear "loose", and is it "unresponsive" when you press it? (i.e. doesn't move) It might be that the "behind the scene" parts are stuck in the down-position, but not the part of the button you see. if button appears stuck, you might try to give the cam a gentle knock with a scredriver shaft, but be careful! You just want the button knocked loose.

Shutter will not fully open or close


It sounds like the shutter mechanism is dirty, or you have a bad spring. Try taking it to a camera shop and have them clean it. It is not very expensive, and well worth it if it fixes the problem. Best regards, nightdiver Let me know if it solves the problem.
