Introduction

This guide will help with replacing the lens of the Kodak EasyShare C713 Camera.

The errors you have been experiencing may have been caused by something as simple as dropping the camera with the lens extended, blocking the lens extension when it was turned on, or the batteries ran out with the lens extended. They also may be due to inner malfunctions in the camera itself. For example, if the lens is not fully extending, something may be wrong with a motor.

During this process, you will need to know how to solder and desolder points on a circuit board.

Make sure the camera is turned off before you begin.
