The lens wont retract(its stuck) thus the camera will not stay on when power button is pushed
I dropped my kodak m1063 easyshare camera whiel takign a picture the lens was extended when dropped. One side of the lens is not crooked inwardly and stuck, it also does not stay on when the power button is pushed, it automatically closes the reason being the lens is stuck; when turning the camera off (before it was dropped) the lens automatically retracts. I need an estimate to how much this will cost to get repaired.

Hello Doris, You can "GENTLY" try to push the lens slowly back into the camera with the palm of your hand, note I said gently and slowly, do not use force !!! Then turn on camera and see if this helped, if not it is repair time.
are you using the battery that came from the box KODAK Li-Ion Rechargeable Digital Camera Battery KLIC-7001 first charged the battery for 4hrs and make sure when you charge it theres a light indicator in the camera., you may also try to turn On the camera while its charging in a AC adaptor., If its did the same thing call kodak toll free 1 800 235 6325. it means the camera gear lens is already defective thats why your camera will not stay On
This problem is frequently due to corroded battery terminals inside the
camera. Remove the batteries and wipe the terminals with a soft cloth
(heavy corrosion may require a fine wire brush, steel wool, or
sandpaper). Remove any residue left in the camera by the cleaning.
Clean the terminals on the batteries in the same manner, and then
replace them in the camera. This cures most problems, but if it
doesn't work for you, check the Kodak troubleshooting guide at:
Lens error is usually caused by mechanical faults concerning lens assembly. The lens cannot extend or retract fully, the error is detected and lens error is returned. Sometimes this can be fixed playing with the lens during extraction or retraction to help the lens asset getting back to normal. More often the camera lens must be disassembled and re-assembled by a technician to fix the problem.
Here's what I did...Mine had the lens stuck out and would not power on. Just a green blinking for a second or two. Well, I tried twisting the lens ring closest to the camera while hitting the power button. It's kinda tricky to do...BUT, just keep at it. Mine was a $1 resale shop "find" and now it works. This worked for me. Maybe it will help you!
