Question about Kodak EASYSHARE Z1285 Digital Camera

3 Answers

When I turn the camera on, immediately it goes off. The lens is all the way out and won't retract. I have held the 'on' button down, but that doesn't help. It will not turn on. I have fresh batteries.

Kodak Easy Share Z1285 turns on for a second then goes off. The lens is all the way out and doesn't go back in when shut off. I repeatly turned it on, butit goes off. I kept holding down the turn on button ... but that doesn't help.

    Same problem. Lens fully extended and won't retract. When I hit power button, it activates the LCD screen for a couple seconds on the reset Date/Time screen, then shuts off.

Push on the front of the lens when you turn it on. The lens extended to far and doesn't have enough power to close it back.

    So let me clear it up. I did some research and on Kodak's website they say they recommend up to 2 gig on regular SD and their Kodak brand 8 gig SD/HC I bought an off brand 8 gig that does not work! My 2 gig SD is Kingston Works great.

The problem is not sand, dirt, or grit. Take the batteries out of the camera and let it sit for an hour or so. Then put the batteries back in the camera. Always store and carry the camera without batteries. Insert the batteries just before you use the camera.

My kodak easy share M1063 turns on then shuts right off how do i


I had the same exact problem. When the camera turns on and then lens extends, hold the lens out while the camera shuts off. Then sort of move it around a bit. I did this and when I turned it on, it was fixed. I guess something was jammed in the lens.

Kodak Easy Share Z1275 stuck lens


**** a very common problem with most cameras. There hasn't been much of a solution for this problem except to try to wiggle the lens zoom while pushing and holding the power button.
Also make sure you have brand new batteries installed. Even the slightest dead battery will cause a problem.
