Question about Kodak EasyShare One Digital Camera
Posted by Anonymous on
Hi, here is whats going on, if your M763 is powering on for 2 secs and the lense opens up then go's right back in, there is a 90% chance you got sand in the unit from say the beach ?
here is a test , when you press the power buttion watch the lense you will notice that the bigger part rotates as it comes out, what you want to do is give it a little help Lightly rotate it abit more just at the point where it normaly stops and go's back in, the cam will prob stay on and work like normal.
now the hard part 2 things to try, a can of AIR from walmarts try to blow out and sand thats around the rings, i did this and have fixed about 20 of these's now, on the others you will need to take it apart and clean the gears and mech of the lense housing then put it all back together.
hope this helps

Try cleaning the contacts from the battery and the battery compartment of the camera. I had the same problem and this fixed it, it seems to be a common problem.

Are you using alkaline batteries? I had the same problem -- my camera cut out after just a few pictures and when I tested the batteries they were practically full. But alkaline batteries, even 'super-heavy-duty' ones, aren't powerful enough for this job. You need better, preferable rechargeable batteries.
