Having problems with your Kodak EasyShare Z740 Digital Camera ?

Power doesn't come when the switch is pressed to the right. I have replaced the battery. The lens does not extend and there are no displays.

Answers :

Remove the battery, and leave for a few hours with battery removed.
\015\012If you still have the old battery - try refitting it and see if it comes alive for you.
\015\012 Some cameras specify a particular type or even make of battery. Fitting one of a different capacity can often cause the camera to throw an error. For example - using alkaline batteries instead of a rechargable block battery - even though they fit - they won't work.
\015\012If the camera displays low batt with the old battery - replace with an identical type.

Camera was on, working fine. When powering off, telescoping lens did not retract so lens remained extended just a bit with lens cover open. Waited a few minutes, turned it back on and I get the "access" display message then the beeps and (turn power off and back on) message. While off, I have removed the battery, replacing it with a fully charged spare and it still does this. The lens tries to telescope a little bit and retracts a touch, but I can't get the camera out of this mode. Can it be res

Even when I change the batteries, when i tried to put on the camera by sliding the front lens cover, the usual display comes in the screen, stay for one or two secs. then went off. I can not take a photo, even i am not been able to see the stored photos. I replace the batteries with new set severel times but the problem remains.

I have the exact same problem. If you hold down your flash button as it powers on, you can run some diagnostics although with mine, it showed the CCD is not functioning. Pretty much that means you now own a paperweight. ... HP Photosmart M22 Digital Camera

I have a Nikon Coolpix L14 and all of a sudden, when I turn it on, the lens moves in and out while making a strange noise until a "Lens Error" message comes on the screen. I tried replacing the batteries, turning it off and on, taking out the memory card, and cleaning the lens. The first time I replaced the batteries, it worked...until the next time I used it and the screen was completely blurred. Then, I had the original problem with the "Lens Error" message. I really don't think it is a conde

The camera was working fine until I purchased a pack of kodak rechargeable batteries. After a week or so of using them my camera stop coming on when I would press the power button, it would make this beeping noise and the lens wouldn't extend. After continuously pressing the power button I got it to come on but again the lens did not extend and the screen was frozen. Why am I having this problem and how can I fix it?

Two things....my approx.18 month old battery died and i bought a replacement yesterday. is this the normal life expectancy? 2nd. Today, with a totally charged battery, I took eight pictures. Later I wanted to review the pics and when I pushed the on/off button, the lens came out but no image appeared. I could not shut off the camera, so had to pop the battery out. I am not sure now if the lens went back in. I pushed the on button again and the lens moved out; the display lit up with the message

I have a Kodak EasyShare Z1485 IS, the lens barrel is stuck in the furthest extended position. It was left alone and not operated for several months, though I have replaced the battery. The camera turns on for about 3 seconds at a time, I tried to turn it on several times with the lens barrel inching forward each time. It stopped going forward and has become stuck in what appears to be the furthest-extended position.There does not appear to be any particulates obstructing the lens barrel as far

Lens stuck out No display No link to computer but will charge battery. Only way to power off is remove battery. Numerous key holds when power on result in no change. View lott's on FixYa. Try gentle but firm exercise of barrel, left right with success when some inward movement felt. Insert battery, power on, screen display yes, take picture yes [onboard memory as no SD installed for tests]. Will update if problem comes back. Gentle but firm is the key, good luck.

About a week ago I turned on my Lumix TZ5 and in the screen displayed this message: "please turn camera off and then on again. I have taken the battery off and I have charged, but the message still displays. When I turn the camera on, the lens extends to the maximum but when I try to use the zoom the camera doesn?t respond. Then if I turn it off the lens stays out. Any idea? Thanks in advance. P.

My Canon Powereshot 200SX IS does not start properly. Display comes on but the lens stays closed inside and a led blinks. After a while display turns black, a beep comes on and the white text says: there is an error, try to start again. Starting it again brings exactly the same situation. Loosing the battery does not help either. Camera seems not to react to any control buttons. There has not been any any obvious reason for this, no falling onto the ground or any other impact.

After recharging the battery and replacing the battery (rechargrable Li-lon), the camera turned on than would not work. I took out the battery and tried to reinsert but now I cannot put it back in.
