Optical lense stuck in the "out" position

My 13 year old daughter used our camera and now the optical zoom lense stays in the "out" position. I turn the camera on and the screen lights up for less than a second and turns off. To the left of the on/off dial, a flashing blue light goes off when I turn the camera on (and turns off a second later). The optical lense always stays in the out position.

My camera had this problem too. Try replacing the batteries. That worked for me.

When i dropped my dx7630, a tiny plastic part broke that worked the holdback spring for the battery. Kodak has a repair service, or a referral service for repairs, but you have to send the camera in. i sent it in. they emailed me to say it was not a repairable part and didn't even ask if i wanted it back. luckily, i kept the memory chip. the C875 i bought was $100 cheaper and had 1M more pixels. good luck with your natural light photography from now on. i think Kodak just figures you buy a new camera whenever anything goes wrong, it'll be better and cheaper anyway.

Minolta x500 shutter arm stuck


A Minolta X500 is a 15+ year old camera. The shutter arm is stuck in the winding position is an indication that the shutter mechanics are broken. Repair would be way more expensive then picking up a used model. Minolta has dropped out of the camera business, some older Sony digital cameras can use their lenses if you have a number of them. Zoom lenses are usually what comes with most camera kits.

My canon 5x optical zoom 16.0 is telling me Memory card locked


Look at your memory card. SD cards have a slide switch along one edge. The position farthest from the metal contacts locks the card, protecting it from writes. The position nearest the contacts unlocks the card.

The camera did not record voice of movie when I use the optical zoom


From page 80 of this manual: "Optical zoom blocks sound being recorded when zooming."

Many cameras do this as otherwise the recording will include the sound of the lens being zoomed. There are two possible workarounds for this: 1) Don't use the optical zoom while recording. 2) Use an external sound recorder to record the soundtrack and mix them together on the computer.

We cannot zoom in or out on the lense and the have to focus manually , this occured after our 9 year old daughter used the camera, did she just switch some sort of adjustment that locked everything up??


What you can try is this. Turn the camera off. Remove the lens.
Put the lens back on, turn on the camera. note any messages.
You should read your manual.
You may be set in manual mode on the camera or the lens or check both.
Make sure that the camera is set to auto lens in menus and on the camera, if it has a setting on the outside.
Make sure, if the lens is AUTO, to set the switch to auto.
Hope it works.

Camera problem


Sorry to say; the camera is faulty and needs replacing.

I have a HP 635 which is the third one after the first two were faulty. The current one has had excessive battery use problems but I think it has been rectified by applying a solution from Fixya (Nspektor).

I would recommend returning it and getting a refund, or store credit at least, and buying a different brand of camera.

I hope this helps.
