Having problems with your Kodak EasyShare Z710 Digital Camera ?

When I turn the power on, the lens does not extract from the camera body. There is a slight grinding noise. I replaced the battery but got the same results. The "menu" and other function screens light up but are non-responsive. Ross

Answers :

If the camera has recently been dropped you may have lens damage that\015\012is preventing it from powering up. If it hasn't been dropped your\015\012problem\015\012may be due to 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 and give them a full\015\012charge (assuming that you are using rechargeable batteries). This\015\012cleaning clears\015\012the problem about 90% of the time. If it doesn't work for you, the\015\012camera may have\015\012a problem that requires professional repair.

Canon SD900 selection options not responsive. The selector wheel, Function Set button and menu selector only work from time to time. Even if pressing the ring brings up info to the LCD, nothing can be changed because the Function Button and the Menu button are not active. This is a random problem. Sometime, I can bring all functions back to life by removing and re-inserting the battery and restarting.
