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 camera doesn't turn off, the lens get stuck and the screen keeps as if it was "off"


1) Try to change by new batteries or recharge the batteries.
2) Clean the contact batteries very well, with special spray contact.
3) Retigh the spring contact a little with a plier for to make a better contact batteries.
4) Put a little spray contact cleaner to the main switch. a try again.
If all this fail, you must go to the repair shop, the power supply inside is faulty.

God bless you

I have a Canon EOS T2 film camera. The shutter blades appear to be stuck half-open. I have checked with two lenses, it's not the lens. Have replaced the battery, no change. Any suggestions?


It's possible that the gold contacts between the camera and lens are dirty and not making an electrical contact. The DIY fix is to take a pencil eraser and gently polish these contact surfaces both the camera and lens contacts. They look clean but over time accumulate a hazy oxide that prevents proper communication between the camera and body. Also the blades will not move if you have the lens off (no power) the camera as it will be set to the last known aperture. The lens needs to be on the camera to work and operate the aperture.

THE LEN IS STUCK ON EXTENDED POSITION AND WILL NOT RETRACT TO THE OFF POSITION? BATTERY WAS FULLY CHARGE.


If no power on the camera:
Here are the steps:
1. Make sure you will install a new or fully charged battery/batteries into your camera. Please use lithium batteries Ni-Mh or rechargeable Batteries (2000 M.Amp or higher).
2. Clean the battery contacts.
a. Remove the battery/batteries and the memory card from your camera, then wipe the battery contacts with a soft, clean cloth.
b. Reinstall the battery/batteries into your camera
3. Turn on your camera without the memory card.

If there is power on the camera, bnut the lens is stuck:
This is a lens error. KODAK suggests a repair for this fault.
However due to spare part shortage this model is no longer repaired. Instead KODAK offers a trade up option where you will have the opportunity to trade up to a newer model 25-30% cheaper than the market price.

My camera lens is stuck. I turned it on, it ran out of battery, it turned off, the lens stayed open, put new batteries in (positively the right way), turned on, blank screen, lens won't shut.


Your problem may be due to corrosion on the battery contacts inside the camera which can prevent the full power of the batteries from flowing into the camera. Try this free fix before you do anything else: remove the batteries and wipe the camera contacts firmly with a dry cloth (heavy corrosion may require cleaning with a wire brush, steel wool, or sandpaper). Remove any residue that may have fallen into the battery compartment during cleaning, then wipe both ends of the batteries and place them back in the camera. This cleaning clears the problem about 90% of the time. If it doesn't work for you, the camera may have a problem that requires professional repair.

If this response helps, please take a moment to post a rating for me. "Very Helpful" would be appreciated.

The lens on my C875 is stuck in the out position and won't retract. Nothing seems to work as if there was no battery in it. Help.


If you've recently dropped the camera you may have damaged the lens tube (housing). This can prevent the lens from moving. This problem will require professional repair. If you haven't dropped the camera though, this problem is frequently battery related. Make sure that you have the correct battery type installed, and that the batteries are fresh/fully charged. If the problem persists, you may have corrosion on the battery contacts inside that camera that is preventing full battery power from flowing into the camera. Remove the batteries and wipe the inside camera contacts firmly with a dry cloth (heavy corrosion may require cleaning with a wire brush, steel wool, or sand paper). Remove any residue that may have fallen into the battery compartment during cleaning, then wipe both ends of the batteries and reinstall them in the camera. This cleaning solves the problem about 90% of the time, and I hope it works for you.

If you've dropped the camera you may have damaged the lens housing - which will require professional repair, but the problem you describe is frequently due to corroded battery contacts inside the camera. Remove the batteries and wipe the camera contacts firmly with a clean cloth (heavy corrosion may require cleaning with a fine wire brush, steel wool, or fine sandpaper). Remove any residue that may have fallen into the battery compartment during cleaning, clean the contacts at both ends of the batteries, and reinsert them in the camera. This cleaning cures the problem about 90% of the time, and I hope it works for you.

Camera lens stuck


Look at some of my posts today.
This may be that the lens is off track and may be able to be pushed back by a little force as you start the camera....see my other posts on this problem.
