The lans on my Kodak CD33 Digital Camera will not retract. It has not been dropped, and suddenly stopped working. The screen flashes once, saying lens error 25, and the flashes again saying setup internal error 15. I received the camera last Christmas, and this is the first problem I have had with it! Please help!
I had exactly the same problem and I went to this site and got my solution. I banged the bottom of the camera with my palm and turned it off and on at the same time. On about the fourth bang the lens retracted and cleared the error codes. I know, "Caveman Maintenence" but it worked. Can't hurt to try...
I had the same problem when I would try to adjust te zoom. Lens error 25 then the camera would power off. We used it for some time like that. Just this week, I bought some lithium digital camera batteries and it began to work correctly. I'm thinking the cheep batteries were not powerful enough for the camera to function properly.
I have same problem with my kodak easy share cd33 camera, lens won;t open , I feel kodak is going down hill and ripping the public off with these camers made in china. What happened with the good old american product or don't we care in this country anymore. I will not buy another product from them, There are better products out there by different companies.

According to the symptom you have to replace the optical lens assymbly. Lens stuck, is common defective that need new lens unit replacement or just repairable. Causes
of a Lens Error: There are a number of ways with which a lens error can
be caused. Particulates might have managed to get into the mechanical
bits that allow the lens to retract, a purely physical interference with
the lens mechanism. If the camera was dropped, especially while the
lens was extended, there's a pretty good chance something might have
been knocked loose, such as the guide pins upon which the lens withdraws
How to Repair a Lens Error: As scary as a lens
error might seem, there are some easy fixes. Before trying any of them
out, however, first take a good long look at your camera warranty and
maybe have a chat with the company. If the lens error will be covered
under the terms of the warranty, go for it. Even some of the simple
fixes mentioned below might void the camera warranty. Frankly, however,
it's unlikely that a lens error will qualify for the warranty. Additional details could find in this article link: fixing-lens-error-on-digital-camera.html
The lens has probably got something in the retraction mechanism that is stopping it retracting. This can be something as simple as sand or grit or as a result of a drop or knock. In most cases the camera will need to be stripped apart to remove the lens assy before it can be repaired. This is best left to a professional camera repair shop.
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.
This is probably THE single 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
My Kodak camere was really not dropped. I put in new batteries and the camera only gives me one shot and I have to turn it off and try again. I can plug the camera into a charge cord and I can take all the pictures I want. Is it possible the 2 batteries are not enough to power the camera
