It is best to replace the batteries in the camera with some new ones. Make sure that you stay chilled and don't worry.

This camera is so plagued with defects, it's hard finding anyone who actually likes it. usually the battery is the part that goes, and you can't get anything done with replacement batteries. As for your e12 error, I know this was a very common error with the 4800, saw many posts with people who had to retire their cameras because of this. One of those people took it upon himself to take the back cover off his DC4800 and discovered a small screw that had fallen out of its hole under the power strip. He shook the camera dislodging the screw and re-installed it in its hole. Camera fixed. Other people then got fixed the same way. And kodak is asking 150$ for looking at it. Hope you work it out, but fortunately the camera isn't expensive. The real solution will be when kodak takes this product of the shelf. Good luck

Hello

The problem is that the lens has become stuck in the barrel. There are some DIY solutions you could try, but the probability is that you will have to get it fixed by a professional.

Use these at own risk as it may further damage the camera.

Firstly , try connecting your ac adapter or usb cable.

Try holding the shutter button while switching on the camera.

Look at the lens , and if some of the lens 'circles' is misaligned or not concentric then try wiggling it (while holding camera lens down).

Try gently pushing or pulling the lens when it extends but this is risky as it may cause the lens barrel to slip out of its guidance system.

Another way to do this is to place the camera lens down on a hard surface and then power it up. Be sure to use a soft cloth or something similar as to not scratch your lens or casing. Let the lens push the camera up and down a few times and sometimes the little resistance provided by the camera is enough to get things going again.

Try hitting your camera near the lens on the body with the soft tissue on the palm of your hand.

Other than that , I would take the camera to a repair center for a evaluation to see if it would cost more to repair than to replace the camera.

If it is still under warranty I would suggest you take it in before trying any of these steps and remove any off-brand batteries or accessories as some stores are really fussy about warranty repairs on camera's with non-brand accessories.

Hope the advise is useful. please do not hesitate to let me know if you need any further assistance. Also, please be so kind to let me know if you found this helpful.

Andrea

My kodak DX4900 just completely locked up and wen i turn it on the top screen says e 13

This is a lens error. KODAK suggests a repair for this fault.

However due to spare part shortage this model is no longer repaired. Instead KODAK offers a trade up option where you will have the opportunity to trade up to a newer model 25-30% cheaper than the market price.

Failes to detect paper edge in Kodax all in one printer

I had exactly the same problem but was able to solve it by selecting "Reset All Settings". This is accessed via Main Menu/Printer Settings/Reset All Settings on the printer's screen.

Hope it works for you too.

Lens error 20e,1,0,0

This is probably THE most common failure among digital cameras. There's a halfway chance of fixing it yourself, described here: http://camerarepair.blogspot.com/2007/12/fixing-lens-error-on-digital-camera.html

When i turn my Digital Camera Kodak EasyShare DX 4900 the message E11 appears but the camera does not turn on.

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:

Well used DX4900 Fuzzy pictures

Repair would far exceed the cost of replacement. It has been a loyal servant over many years - it should now be retired and replaced by a newer model.

Battery Drain

1) Rechargable batteries have a finite life. At some point they'll no longer hold their charge. This may be the case with your camera. 2) Alkaline AA batteries do not perform well with digital cameras or other high drain devices. They can not maintain a voltage level these devices require. It is unlikely you'll get much use out of alkaline AA's with your camera. The solution? Buy a new rechargable battery for the camera.
