Having problems with your Kodak Digital Cameras ?

The lens will not close. It will not stay on. When I try to turn it back on to see if the lens will go back in. It sounds like a motor trying and shuts off.


Answers :

Your problem may be due to weak/worn out batteries or corrosion on the battery contacts inside the camera\015\012which can prevent the full power of the batteries from flowing into the\015\012camera. Try this free fix before you do anything else: remove the batteries and wipe the camera contacts firmly with\015\012a dry cloth (heavy corrosion may require cleaning with a wire brush,\015\012steel wool, or sandpaper). Remove any residue that may have fallen\015\012into the battery compartment during cleaning, then wipe both ends of\015\012the batteries and place them back in the camera. This cleaning clears\015\012the problem about 90% of the time. If it doesn't work for you, chances\015\012are that your batteries need to be replaced because they're just too worn to properly power the camera.\015\012And then, of course, there's the possibility that your camera may have\015\012a problem that requires professional repair.

I have a D5000 camera w/ kit lens VR 55-200, less than a year old. Recently and only occasionally what is happening is when I press the shutter release button, the lens won't focus, it won't move in or out and it makes a odd noise, not the usual lens motor noise, but an odd squeaking noise, like it's trying to move but is stuck. The only way to correct it is to either shut the camera off and turn it back on again, or switch to manual focus, then back to auto. The battery is full, so it's not

When I turn on my Kodak Z740 camera it only stays on for about 3 seconds then it shuts off completely. When I turn it on, the lens moves out then back in, then shuts off. The battery is one I bought fairly recently, I tried taking it out, leaving it out for seversl hours and putting it back in, this did not help.

I just removed the SD card to view some pictures and now when I put it back in it will not latch and stay down. I have tried two other cards as well and none will latch and stay down. They do not seem to go down as far as I am used to seeing them, like something is in the slot but with a light and magnifying glass I do not see anything in the way. Any ideas? TX DW


The first thing that comes to mind is to make sure you have it in the right direction. You should have the metal connectors of the CD card facing AWAY from the batteries. Even if the card fits the other direction, it is a must to have the connector ... Canon PowerShot A1100 IS Digital Camera

I have a cannon camera, my boyfriend dropped it with the lens extended and now whenever I try to turn it on I get a message saying that there is a lens error and the camera will shut down. I have tried a couple of answers on this website, but most have to do with a lens that is stuck out, mine will still retract back and forth if you smack it on your hand. My problem is when you power it off and back on the error shows up and the lens will not extend then. Any suggestions are greatly appreciate
