Kodak EasyShare Z710 - Lens won't retract or close

\015 I've had this Kodak EasyShare Z710 for about a year. I had to have work on it once before because of a lens problem. That time, it wouldn't open. Now, the last time I used it, the lens opened just fine, I took a couple pictures, then the lens stopped working and the screen went black. Now the zoom lens won't close at all. I know it's the lens and not the screen because I have no problem reviewing my previous pictures on the screen. I don't want to try and force the lens closed and possibly break it! I think I'm just beyond my warranty so I can't send it in without paying quite a bit. If there is something I could do to mechanically repair it (I am a computer tech so working on hardware is not new to me), that would be excellent! I await your response!\015

Answers :

My Z710 does the same thing. is dead wont turn on. I sharp hit with the palm of my hand and it turns on everytime!
The glass front lens of mine is broken but the mechanism works fine, so thats the only part I need..Kodak said $211.00 for the whole lens, so I'm watching for damaged Z710's for sale all over the net..I've bookmarked this page..If I get one that has the working lens, I'll just use the front glass and let you guys know.hopefully somebody would do the same for me.I'm not a salesman, Thanks...Bill
