Check Kodak for repair quotes likely hood not economical though

Kodak EasyShare... | Answered on Jun 06, 2016


I just took a quick look at some info regarding the camera in question and no, it does not appear that the lens can be removed (the way you would with a DSLR)...and even if it were possible, I would NOT recommend it.

Unless you have specific experience with such repairs (which I would assume isn't the case since you asked the question to begin with), unfortunately my advice would be to simply buy another camera. The simple fact of the matter here is that even if you are able to navigate and reassemble the micro electronics in this camera, to remove the lens and clean any fungi would ultimately require the camera to be sent back to the manufacturer to have the lens elements properly re-calibrated. Such camera lenses often have multiple elements and even the slightest fraction of misalignment will render the lens (and thus the camera) useless.

-If- this were a newer or higher end camera, I might suggest sending it to the manufacturer for cleaning/repair, however the simple fact here is that this is an older 4 mp camera with the average used value being $50 or less (the repair would likely cost -A LOT- more). I would simply browse websites such as B&H Photo or Adorama and find a similar used camera in working condition...or even consider an upgrade to a better brand (Nikon, Sony, Pentax, etc).

BTW...to avoid such issues in the future, I would suggest putting a couple of those "anti moisture" silicone packs (like you find in shoe boxes or packing material) inside your camera bag (and keep your camera in the bag when not in use). They make a world of difference.

Good Luck!

SD cards max out at 2GB. The XP50 will also work with SDHC cards, 4GB to 32GB, and with SDXC cards, 64GB on up.

Switch that shows the flash itself is up is broken. It is not easy to replace so now is the time to upgrade the camera or purchase on Ebay a replacement.

There is a small switch inside the flash flip up and it will get broken. Can only be replaced by someone with experience. You will do more damage to the camera trying to fix it. You can purchase a replacement for about $35 on Ebay or now is the time to upgrade.

This is exactly what happened with my DX6490. The underlying switch is only attached to the PCB with 6 or so tiny solder pads and these tend to give way after a time. It can be fixed although v. fiddly. You need to open the camera body up (screws and brute force, see previous solutions) and carefully release bits and pieces until you have access to the board. The switch can be resoldered if you have a tiny enough iron, very steady hands (use a rest) and a magnifying glass - or know someone who can do this kind of thing.

Does not look good at all. Try this:
remove the battery. Charge the battery, or place another charged battery. Close the battery cover and switch the camera on.
I hope it now will retract the lens.
Most of the time you only can manage to freeze a camera with the lens in that position, when you remove the battery. That is unwise, because the camera does not know in what position the lens is, when you place the battery and switch on.
If the camera was switched out correctly and it could not retract the lens, it could be there is a mechanical problem in the lens barrel, or the motor (steering) is defect.
Sometimes camera's just die too.
I wide you luck while reviving your camera.

And let me guess, it could not swim?
If the water was very clean, please remove the memory card and the battery. You can dry them separately. When no water is coming out of the camera, put it in a plastic bag and fill that with rice. If you also do have silica gel. or other things to remove moist, you can use that too.
Let it dry for a few days.
If the water was dirty, the only way will be the camera has to be opened and cleaned complete. I would not recommend you to do that yourself. It is quite a job, and you need to know about electronics and you need special cleaning fluids.

You can charge the battery with the charger that came with the camera. Or you can charge the battery with the camera dock. For that to work, you should switch off the camera. While the charging is stopped as soon as you switch on the camera.
If you don't have a dock nor a charger, you could buy a new universal battery charger. Several brands do have universal camera battery chargers. Those new chargers sense what voltage your battery needs and will give no more.

Hello, This happens quite often and the bad news is it is not worth the cost of repair,the good news is you can sell it on E-Bay for parts and by a good used one to replace it.If you buy a good used DX6490 you can still use your battery,charger,and other items from your old camera.
I have several very nice DX6490 units that I sell.

Sounds to me that if you bought 2 chargers then you have a bad battery. what are the odds that you have 2 bad chargers ? Time to buy a new battery.

Kodak EasyShare... | Answered on Jan 26, 2013


Hello Sabrina, What charger are you using ? The a/c adapter that plugs into the camera does not charge the battery,it is only used to power the camera for down loading pics or viewing etc. How old is your battery ? We just need a little more info.

Best Regards, Russell

Just to make sure, you are taking the battery out of the camera and putting it into the charger?
