Question about Kodak EasyShare DX6340 Zoom Digital Camera

Open Question


Camera was dropped in fresh water and after drying out works perfectly, apart from a smudged diry mark in middle of lens which also comes out on the photos. Can the zoom lens be taken out of the camera and cleaned? If it can any instructions on how would be appreciated. I have got the back off the camera but cannot work out how to get the boards (Or if I need to) and subsequently somehow release the telephoto lens so that it can be removed and cleaned. Hopefully the mark is on the back of the glass and will be easily cleaned once removed. ...MH

No. You can't take the lense apart for the cleaning by yourself. Any expert pro camera repairer will do the job

Dropped my camera in some water. took it apart to dry it out and see if it still works. It comes on but you can't take any pics because of the condensation on the inside of the lens. my question is how... took it apart!...and now you want to get inside to clean the condensation off the lens!!! STOP WHAT YOU'RE DOING!!! DON'T KEEP TRYING TO TURN IT ON...YOU WILL FRY THE CIRCUITS. Bury the camera in a bowl of dry rice for one week....then, turn it on.

Fell in water

DO NOT TRY TO TURN IT ON!!! You will only fry the circuits. Remove the battery and card. Dry the compartment as well as you can. Bury the camera in a bowl of dry rice for one week. Then, you can try to turn it on (keeping your fingers crossed). Even if it works, you still have the problem of water marks on the interior lens elements. Also, I'm assuming this was fresh water and not salt water.

Hi! I got a Canon rebel XT. problem... the camera is dead

Like all electronics, water is it's worst enemy so even by drying it (which is commendable) you still may have traces of water somewhere on the circuit board. We all know water is conductive, so if some solder tracks were shorted there can be a problem there or if the water has corroded through a solder track the circuit fails. There are numerous chips in the camera that are super tiny so even the slightest water can damage them.

In my experience when something is water damaged (and seriously water damaged) it is beyond repair.

Camera mmersed in fresh water

Electronics and water don't mix, you have ruined the camera, take the batteries out, take the camera completely apart and dry it completely, this may be ruined / lost cause but you can try.

I have a finepix s6500fd and recently dropped it in a river. The camera has dryed out very well and works, but I have now got water marks on the inside of the lens. How can I get into the camera to clean...

Unfortunately, the lens on the 6500fd is not a removable lens, and if the water is on the inside of the glass, you will want to send it in for a good cleaning.

The problem with electronics getting a bath is that although it works now, after drying, the water that was inside will promote corrosion of the internal workings of the camera over time. I would definitely send the camera to Fuji or to a qualified service center and have them give it a good cleaning to slow or prevent the decay of the insides of the camera.

I hope this helps.

Dried water droplets on inside of lens

The camera lens will have to come completely apart, and all the pieces be cleaned. This is not something you can do yourself at home. Because there is water in the lens, there is the risk that the humidity will cause corrision of some of the pieces and electronics inside of the lens unit.

You an try leaving the camera in a dry warm place that is not more than about 100 deg F for a few days to see if the water will dry out. But, I am sure that there will be water stains inside on the lens surfaces.
