Kodak DX6490 Not Charging

We have had our camera for 3-4 years with no problems and had not problems, we have 4 kids so it has been handled with kid hands more than once.  Recently, it was dropped and now it does not charge using the Kodak dock.  I checked the printer/charger dock for connectivity and the lights on dock function indicating a camera is one the dock and showing the low battery, but after 3-4 hours it does not charge.

Mine did the same thing, only it hadn't been dropped. Turns out, the battery went bad. The repairman said that the life of those batteries is only about 3 years average. He also said the average lifespan of the camera itself, with frequent usage, was only 3 years! I am still hoping to get the auto focus fixed on mine though. I sure did love that camera.

My Kodak Easy Share DX6490 will not turn on. When I place it on the charging dock, the lights flash like it is transferring photos to my computer and the flashing won't stop even if I remove the camera...


Hello, sounds like you have a faulty battery,if the battery is several years old it will lose the capacity to boot the camera and the dock is trying to charge a defective battery,if you get a new battery, charge it for at least 6 hours or more.Hope this solves your problem.

Can't turn on the DX6490. I have 2 fully charged batteries, and neither one will work.


Hello, If the batteries you have are charging up with no problems then it sounds as if the rotary switch has gone 10 - 7. This model Kodak suffers from a great deal of switch problems. Cheap China plastic.
There are thousands of owners with these cameras having switch problems as the cameras age. Only cure is to replace the camera. It is not cost effective to repair.

Kodak DX6490 camera doesn't turn on. The light continueously blinks.


Hello Cynthia, Well there can be several reasons for this, First thing is to try a known good charged battery as these have a problem as they age not having enough power to boot the camera which requires quite a bit of power to start because of turning on the display, operating the lens motor,charging the flash,etc. This would be my first check before you go any further.

Kodak dx6490 Powers up and shuts itself off.Battery is charged!


Hello, Sounds like you may have a battery problem. The DX6490 battery loses it's capacity over time, If the battery is a couple years old they are known to fail. May not be any problem with camera, try a new battery and let it charge completely before installing it.

Charger blinks red and does not charge


This maybe a solution. I had the same issue just now. Pulled battery, put back in, placed on dock, and still blinking red. So I removed the camera from the dock, pulled battery, put same old battery back in, placed on the dock and turned the mode switch on right away before it started blinkin red. It seems to be charging now with one bar and has not gone blinking red for 15 minutes.

I was outside with the camera in 10 degree weather taking pics of my dogs but had been inside for 20 minutes before placing it on the doc. I think something may have happened with the charging circuit and turning it on right away with it on the doc may have reset the charging. Try it. Hope it works for you.

Auto focus quit working


See if the camera is asking for the date to be relaoded. Tiny clock battery dies after a few years. Not a big problem

Kodak DX6490 error E45


this is actually a known problem or defect with this camera. Sometimes, if you point this out to kodak, they will fix it. I would go to the kodak site and write to them about it, or if there is a number, call that number. This didn't happen to me, but I came across this information when researching a different problem with the same model camera. I wish I could point you to the exact info, but it was a while back. The forum that I was on...some people were able to get their camera fixed, even though it was past warranty, and some were not.
