Kodak v1073 lens cover won't open when camera is turned on


Answers :

Remove the batteries and clean the battery contacts inside the camera\015\012with a soft cloth (a heavy buildup on the contacts may require cleaning\015\012with a fine wire brush, steel wool, or sandpaper). Remove any residue\015\012that the cleaning leaves in the camera, and then reinstall the\015\012batteries. This clears most power-on problems, but if yours persists,\015\012check the Kodak troubleshooting guide at:

When I turn the camera on, the lens cover opens and then closes. When I turn the camera off, the lens cover closes and then opens. So, how can I get the timing of the lens cover correct? Or can you tell me how I can keep the lens cover open all the time? (not the best solution but now I can't take a photo at all!)

My camera turns on by itself even with the slide in front in the closed position. The screen then shows the warning that the lens cover is closed. When I open and reclose the lens cover in 10 or so seconds the camera turns itself back on and repeats with the lens cover closed warning. The only way for me to turn the camera off at this point is to remove the battery. Help!


Most likely some dirt, dust, or other particle is jamming the lens opening gears. You can try to spray some compressed air into the lens assembly, hopefully dislodging whatever is obstructing the lens cover. If this doesn't work, the camera wil ... Sony Cyber-shot DSC-T77 Digital Camera

Fuji a345 I have a 2 year old Fuji a345 which periodically has a problem with the lens cover not opening and, of course, the lens not extending into position when the camera is powered on.

Panasonic Lumix DMC-LZ2 Image 'melts' into streaky vertical lines when camera is turned on.
