Having problems with your Kodak EasyShare CX6445 Digital Camera ?

New batteries just put in. camera turns to black screen after i take a picture, even with memory card in. screen turns black, camera appears to be turned off, but lens does not retract.


Answers :

It may be something more serious, or your new batteries may be defective, but the problem you describe is\015\012frequently due to corrosion on the battery contacts inside the camera. \015\012Remove the batteries and wipe the camera contacts firmly with a clean\015\012cloth (heavy corrosion buildups may require cleaning with a wire brush,\015\012steel wool, or sandpaper). Remove any residue that may have fallen\015\012into the battery compartment, clean the contacts at both ends of the\015\012batteries, and reinstall them in the camera. Assuming that the\015\012batteries are fresh/fully charged, this takes care of about 90% of the\015\012startup problems. I hope it works for you.

Camera lens The lens itself is making a strange noise and it is having trouble adjusting itself when the camera turns on.

The lens is trying to push itself outwards but it is getting stuck. I'm not exactly sure what is wrong with it but I assume that once Iam able to fix the lens I will be able to use the camera normally again.
