Lens error 12 & 22

I dropped my Kodak Easyshare C330 and now the lens will not move. I keep getting errors 12 and 22. I did have the problem with error 12 before and did what was suggested and tapped the bottom and it worked. Please any suggestions would be great. I use my camera to take family and child portraits. and absolutly can not do without it. I went and bought a samsang one tonight but if I am able to fix my Kodak that would be great.

Our school uses this camera. It's reporting a lens error 12 and the lens does not extend. Bumping it did not work, nor does pulling the lens out with a fingernail.

One teacher said that another school had LUCK by installing a new battery pack. The old one might not hold enough power to fully boot up the camera, causing the lens error.

I have noticed that the battery does not hold a charge for any length of time. This will be our next approach.

Cameras that are dropped, banged or bumped are not covered by a warrantee, so beware.

You have to dismantle the lens assembly. The lens got misaligned so you just have to realign it. But it is a lot of work. Had the same issue and was able to fix it myself..

I Dropped my camera model c330 and the lens will not return. I get lens error codes 22 and 12 and the camera will shut down.


Lens errors are fairly common. Usually it's sand or grit interfering with the lens extension mechanism. Or the camera's been dropped with the lens extended. Or the camera has been powered on, but the lens had been blocked preventing its extension. Or the battery ran down with the lens extended ... Unfortunately, many cameras that fall prey to this can only be corrected by professional repair. But, here are some things that you can do 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, they're worth a try.

Kodak C330 [lens error 14]


Hi Jesse, thanks for coming to FixYa.

The problem your having is that sand and/or dirt gets in the lens mechanism of the camera. When the little cog inside gets sand in it, it prevents it from moving. It is what causes 95 percent of all lens errors. The other 5 are when the retaining pins get misaligned and don't go back in the holes. Mis aligned pins happen alot of times when you drop it with the lens extended, so let's go with the easy one first.

Take an air compressor (or borrow a friends) and put the nozzle up to the space in between the lens and and the camera. Blow it out real good. It may take a couple of tries, but it should free it up.

Let me know if that helped, and feel free to rate my answer.

Kodak Easy Share C330 lens error 14 and lens error 22


Hello,

I bought two of these on clearance and gave one to my in-laws. She suspected that one of her kids may have dropped the camera or pushed in the lens. I don't remember which lens error number had shown up, but I dis-assembled the camera to find out what the deal was. If I remember correctly, there is a way to manually turn the gears to put he lens back out. I left the lens out and turned it on and it worked perfectly. Fair warning though. It is VERY IMPORTANT not to touch the contacts for the flash EVEN WITH THE BATTERIES OUT!!! God did it hurt like hell... unfortunately it is fairly easy to do and I must have accidentally done it about 4-5 times while messing with it..
