Question about Kodak EasyShare Z7590 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Lens problems I recently purchased a Kodak Z7590. I have only used it a couple times. My daughter set it on the couch (still on). When I sat down beside of it the camera slid down behind the cushion. I didn't notice it till I stood up. Now the lens will not retract. The lens appears to be extended all the way and has a slight tilt to it. When it is turned on it sounds like it is trying to work, same when it's turned off. I tried to twist the lens as it was powering on and off to get it to work. I only did this once each way as I didn't want to damage it further. Any help will be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

Re: lens problems

This is a simple fix. Take the lens and with slight pressure, pens the lens until it's straight. It will make a clicking sounds and lens is lined up and will retract.

Kodak z7590 out of focus

It is almost impossible to not use the AF mode from the camera. Perhaps you managed to put the camera in Accessery lens AF, without any extra lens on the camera. Or perhaps only the pictures are blurred, because you zoomed in to far, without a tripod.
As long as I can't see a picture it is difficult to decide where the problem comes from.
While shooting a picture, just press the shutter release button half, till the green light goes on. Then press the button fully.

I do not have a cable to download pictures from the camera's internal memory. Is there a way to copy from internal memory to a SIMM card? Or can I purchase the necessary cable?

You can copy pictures from the internal memory to a memory card. Insert a card and set the camera's storage location to internal memory. Press the Review button, then the Menu button. Use up/down to select Copy.

I cannot get the pictures off of my Kodak Easy Share Z7590. It has internal memory and I normally just print the photos I want but this time I want to put them on my computer. I downloaded Kodak Easy...

Are you saying that you just use the internal memory instead of a memory card? If so, there's nothing we can do to help you. At this point, your computer has lost the ability to recognize your camera probably due to Windows updates.

I have a Kodak Z7590, the power ring flashes amber when I power it on. Thinking that the battery is dead, (and it was recharged) I bought a new battery, charged it, and it does the same thing. What can I...

Here is the link for this camera at Kodak: Kodak Z7590
you may try to set all menu settings to default. Flash problems can sometimes result in not correct settings of settings for other modes. There may be a setting to set all or reset all to factory settings or default, or something like that.
If that does not fix this, then there may be some problem in the internal workings of the camera, and it will need repair.
If you can take pictures and you are able to view them as well, ane the problem still is there, then some problem may exist internally with some components.

Slow image capture speed

Look into changing the ISO settings (that's similar to the old film speed). The higher the number, the quicker the shutter speeds per exposure, but the grainier the images.

400 is good in general, if it's very dark try something higher.

Kodak easyshare dx4530 turns on then off

Hi there.

90 percent of the time when the lens malfunctions, it's due to grit or dirt in the lens mechanism. If you stored your camera in a camera bag, while you used the other camera, that could be your problem. Camera bags are great for holding dirt so it can get in your camera.
When the lens can't move, it may cause the camera to shut down. To fix this, use an air compressor. Put the nozzle to the camera and blow air into the space between the camera and the lens. Blow it out real good and try it again. You may have to repeat the process a couple of times. Hope this helps.

Camera lens

This is a simple one. The lens is tilted at an angle. Most likely you will find your lens cap doesn't fit correctly and all you need to do is align the lens correctly. Then when you turn on the power, the lens will autmatically extend.

Could be time for a new camera But check out Kodak Support first. It has been said that cameras in a certain price band[any make/model] are to be considered as disposable -like toasters and kettles I guess.

Camera switches on then off

Check the Kodak website Tech support, It does seem that there is a switch fault or internal short here.
