Having problems with your Digital Cameras ?

A345 lens often does not open when power button is pressed. By pressing the power button the 2nd time, then pressing it the 3rd time, the camera seems to work normally. This is with used or fresh alkaline batteries. Shometimes the camera makes a short buzzing sound when the lens retracts. Have also had problems with the zoom lens not operating consistently.

Kodak V1003 A few weeks ago, shortly after I'd taken a pic, the lens refused to retract and the camera switched off. It has never been dropped or had anything spilled on it. Strangely, when I press the button furthest left the camera comes on, allows me to view pictures on the card, set the time etc - everything except take pictures. Again when I try to switch off, the lens does not retract. Does this not suggest a software glitch of some kind?


No, unfortunately that is a problem with the hardware, software would not prevent the lens from retracting.\015\012\015\012If it is within manufacturer's warranty (usually 1 year) take it to any Best Buy they will send it out to the mfg f ... Kodak EasyShare V1003 Digital Camera
