It sound like a problem with the zooming mechanism (lens would not retract or extended) Press the power button on and hold it down while extending and twisting the telescopic zoom lens. It might fix your problem. In any case it could not make it worse Good luck!

I dropped my moms Kodak EaseySHare C195 (14 Mega Pixels) camera and the lens got obsturcted and i need it fixed really fast, and ideas?

Unfortunately, many cameras that fall prey to lens error problems can only be corrected by professional repair. But, here are some last resort troubleshooting steps that you can try that may correct it. They only seem to work for less than 40% of the lens errors, but if the camera is out of warranty (or repair cost approaches that of the camera), they're worth that try.

When I turn the camera on, the lens won't open. I can review pics I have taken, but cannot take new ones.

its a problem with your lens cover shutter on the upper face of the lens. Get it repaired in some Kodak service center.

I have a Kodak easyshare 8.2 mega pixel camera that will load pictures onto the computer but will not turn on to take pictures.....can you please help me i really need this camera to work

In most cases, the camera is beyond economic repair. If the camera is a few years old, buying a newer one is a better option. I'm seeing brand name 10 MP models NEW for $60. you might check online auction sites for used ones. I've picked up 5 MP ones for $5.

If the problem is the lens itself, you have to call Kodak, and if still have the reciept of your camera and you purchased it within a year, they will process it for in warranty repair.

Lens jammed will not retract, canon pc1147 zoom

I have had the same issue were the lens would not retract. took it in for extended warranty work. lens now retracts but takes lousy pictures.

When I purchased this camera family members ran out and bought thiers shortly after I did. One by one the same issue has happend to their v1253's.

I dissmantled one and found that there is a tiny battery on the power board inside of the camera. apparently the tiny battery's life is about 1 1/2 years. This battery is not serviceable as it is welded in place. I am not one hundred percent sure if this is the cause but it makes sense.

It would be nice if kodak would own up to this issue and make good on repairs as they did with my kodak 5500 all-in-one printer and it's crappy print head. Kodak has sent me 4 print heads in the 2 years I have owned it.

I have 5 of the v1253's in my family and every one of the are dead. I would think a $250 product should last longer than 1 1/2 years.
hope this helps.
