Having problems with your Kodak EASYSHARE M340 Digital Camera ?

Kodak M340 lens extends then retracts immediately

\015 I bought this camera exactly 1 week ago and it started doing this within 4 days. The battery is charged, and I don't think it has been dropped, or exposed to moisture. We bought it on vacation and I stupidly threw away the box (since it wouldn't fit in our luggage) and my boyfriend misplaced the receipt. The camera is only 1 week old and it is just a hunk of plastic. Help!!\015

I had the same problem after a day at the beach. What I did was get a\015\012can of compressed air (from the computer section) and blow air around\015\012the lens as I repeatedly turned it on. It took about five cycles, but\015\012I eventually cleared whatever was preventing the lens from fully\015\012opening.

Check the setting on the mode knob on the top. Set it to auto. try other settings. It may help. It could be it is set to view pics instead of take pics.

My Pentax Optio S10 digital camera is giving me problems. Initially the lens would not extend fully and would then immediately retract and the camera would then turn itself off.
