Having problems with your Kodak EasyShare V1233 Digital Camera ?

My lens is jammed and doesnt stay on when i cut it on. what can i do?


Answers :

If the camera has recently been dropped it may have lens damage that is preventing it from powering up. If it hasn't been dropped, your problem\015\012may be due to weak/worn out batteries\015\012or 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 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, your batteries may need to be replaced, or the camera may have\015\012a problem that requires professional repair.
