    I've just inherited one of these cameras, and it was taking quite good
    pictures, when it suddenly stopped working.
    The symptoms are:
    zoom lens is sticking out and does not retract when off/on switch is moved
    to the "off" position.
    Switching the camera to the "on" position has no effect on the zoom lens,
    and the "ready" light, which previously flashed green, then gave a steady
    green light when ready to take pictures, now gives one green flash, followed
    by ten red flashes, then nothing.
    The Kodak nimh batteries which were working ok before, appear to be properly
    charged, and give this indication on the easyshare base.
    Other nimh batteries which worked previously do not help, and dry cell
    energizer batteries which were previously working with the camera do not
    help either.

    Can anyone give any suggestions?
    Thanks in advance

    Greetings Peter,

    Sorry to see that your camera has malfunctioned. Actually, it sounds like
    it has jumped the track or that the firmware may have been damaged.
    Although you have just acquired the camera, contact the Kodak support team
    for your part of the world. I believe that would be as follows.

    Phone = 1- 800-147701
    Fax = 1-800-147702
    Email =

    They will be able to help you get things in order. Not sure what happened
    so cannot be sure if the lens was bumped, can happen without your knowing,
    or the like. If the lens jumped the track it may not work and so service
    will be required.

    If you think I can help, let me know.
