Bad USB Port in Camera

I was having problems transferring pictures from my DX7440 and could feel a little "glitch" with my cable/USB port in the camera, so thinking my cable was bad I ordered a new one from Kodak. After trying the new cable, I have realized it is the USB port inside the camera.

I contacted Kodak support and was told that I could send it in for repair or mail it back to Kodak and receive a coupon for 15% off a new camera purchased through Kodak.

I called repair and was told it would cost almost $140.00 to repair the USB port and I can probably buy a new camera for that. Is there any way I can repair/replace the USB port myself? TIA hey i had finished transferring the pics to my pc. after that when i pulled out the cable the front port of cable remained inside the camera. i pulled it out but then i saw a part of camera inside camera's usb port but i thought it was a part of cable and tried to pull it out and hence damaged the port of camera itself .
plz. help me will i be able to repair it or it will be better to get it repaired , i live in new delhi, india

With that amount of non-accidental damage, a replacement is the best option financially

SOURCE: trouble transferring pictures from camera to computer

First, Try and install the HP software again. Uninstall the software first and reboot the pc. Then reinstall software. The memory chip maybe have currupt pictures, so format the chip using the camera. You manual should tell you how to do this. Second, Turn the camera on and let the battery run all the way down. This may take some time, maybe a day. Then charge it back up for a day. I hope this helps you out. Let me know.

SOURCE: Bad USB Port in Camera

I think you CAN--there's a lovely site with specific instructions,,,, Do It Yourself Camera Repair --- for fabulous step by step instructions WITH pictures & simple explanations that a novice can follow!!!

In short, all you need to do is find another USB port (even from a broken camera or other device) to replace yours. It seems that you'll need to solder it in -? - that's the step I'm trying to research right now--I'd like to just glue mine back in because I don't know how to solder--- but the tricky part is getting the camera apart, not touching the flash capacitator nor any of it's power-holding chips, and not damaging any of the other components.

Good luck!

SOURCE: "establishing connection..." not connecting

I suspect the problem lies with the HP software on your computer. You can download the HP Photosmart software from www.hp.com. Look for Software & Driver Downloads for R707 camera. You can still transfer your photos by setting USB Configuration in your camera, to Disk Drive in the Setup Menu.

SOURCE: I lost my HP Photosmart M425 USB connector.How do I get a newone

Consider getting a card reader instead. You should be able to pick one up at just about any department, electronics, or office-supply store for less money than a USB cable.


The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.


Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use any photo cataloging program such as Picasa.

I am trying to transfer pictures from my Cannon EOS Rebel T1i to my Mac book and I can't get it to work


When you connect the camera to the Mac, you must have the camera powered ON. THe Mac will automatically recognize the camera and will open iTunes to download the pictures. IF this does not happen, you may have a bad cable or a bad USB port on the Macbook. Try a different cable, or try a different port. Good Luck.

Usb cable has never worked to transfer pictures to computer


It could be a bad USB cable or a bad port. You can test the port by plugging in a different device. If the port tests good and the camera is connected and turned on, you most likely have a bad cable.

Make sure your cable is OK. 1: Make sure you don't have any damaged pins on the plug on your camera and on your USB port on the computer Try using a different cable to be sure that is not the problem. If you can t ry a different camera on the same cable and make it work, your camera is at fault. Try it on a different USB port, and possibly also on a different computer to make sure the port on your computer is not at fault. Check both cable ends and the ports on the camera and computer are not dirty

No usb port found


If you can't find such on your machine, then it's either disabled, the BIOS is out of date, the OS doesn't support your USB (Examples abound!) or other. I cut my time loss by adding an USB PCI card.
