Having problems with your Kodak EasyShare M1033 Digital Camera ?

Lens will not go back in camera. Makes a noise and camera shits off quickly.

Answers :

It's hard to resist, but I will NOT comment on your spelling. . . .If the camera has recently been dropped it may have lens damage that's preventing it from powering up. If it hasn't been dropped, your problem\015\012may be due to weak/worn out batteries or corrosion on the battery contacts inside the camera which can\015\012prevent the full power of the batteries from flowing into the camera.\015\012Try this free fix before you do anything else: remove the batteries and\015\012wipe 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, place them back in the camera and give them a good\015\012charge (assuming that you're using rechargeable batteries). This\015\012cleaning clears\015\012the problem about 90% of the time. If it doesn't work for you, your\015\012batteries may need to be replaced, or the 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
