    DO YOU THINK IT WOULD BE WORTH IT TO BRING IT INTO A SHOP TO FIX OR SHOULD I JUST GET A NEW ONE.

Oh yeah, it sure does sound like sand. Sure death to zoom lenses. Kodak will not cover this under warranty either. Unfortunately, Kodak will not sell parts to anyone so you are going to have to deal directly with them.

Problem with M340 Kodak easy share digital camera..( automaticall


I had the same problem after a day at the beach. What I did was get a can of compressed air (from the computer section) and blow air around the lens as I repeatedly turned it on. It took about five cycles, but I eventually cleared whatever was preventing the lens from fully opening.

Good luck.

This is not a user solvable problem. One thing that should not be done is to turn on the camera when it has been dropped in dirt, sand or water. This will, in your case, grind the dirt around and parts try to move and contaminate additional parts of the camera. It's only worse if water is involved as this will likely cause shorts in electrical areas.
Take the camera to a repair shop and get their opinion on whether it is fixable and if so what they estimate the cost to be. Sometimes it's cheaper to buy a new or used camera.

How to get Sand out of my Camera?


You should not open it. You should take it to a professional for repair. Sand is scratchy, the more you mess with it, the more scratches.

Shuts off when i try to zoom.....


I was also having a similiar problem with my z1275 and tried the "vacuum" thing. BINGO! It worked, and I was about to send the camera back to Kodak for servicing. You saved me money.

What did I do?

I turned my vacuum on, stuck my lense into the vacuum tube, zoomed all they way IN and then turned the vacuum off. My camera now works perfectly.

Before using the vacuum, I was only able to zoom about 50% before the camera would turn off. Thanks for your help.

Sorry about the inconvenience that you are having.

Did you use it on the beach? Maybe some sand went into the lens mechanism.

Usually, this problem is related to broken gears and it's frequent on nikon L series and Kodak easyshare ( http://josepino.com/?kodak ) .

I don't think there is a cheap solution for that, except banging the camera a little, it may help to get the lenses working again. Anyway, I do not recommend that kind of solution but some people says it works.

Unfortunately, You Nikon is so cheap, it will be better to buy a new one instead of having it fixed.

Does it need regular cleaning?


Hi,
'
Sand generally has no effect on the electronic side of the camera, however it will definitely can cause problems with the mechanical aspect of the camera such as the zoom lens. this can be removed with a can of compressed air.

Suntan lotion likewise should not be any problem except for smudges on the housing/casing and especially bad for the lens. Additionally, the lotion would help the sand adhere to crevices and nooks of the camera. Wiping should get you just fine.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Out of focus


Sounds like the camera is trying to focus if you hear sound when pressing the shutter halfway down or zooming. If the noise is a scraping or grinding sound, you might have debris stuck between the cracks of the lens and the camera body. This happened to me after i dropped my canon sd550 on the beach just once and it never recovered. Next to water sand has got to be one of a camera's worse enemy. Also, the lens might be cocked a bit which would prevent the camera from focusing and zooming smoothly. Try gently adjusting the the lens. Sometimes the slightest imperfection in the lens will throw everything off. Good luck!
