Re: my inner lens cannot open

Hello DJ Upi, This is a lens assembly mechanism problem. It is a delicate part of any camera. The lens assembly is composed of several servomotors, coils, some sensors and the actual lens. It does the following jobs: it extends the lens back and forth achieves focus by moving the lens zooms the lens by rotating them in the same time as the whole objective is moved back and forth Each of these operations is controlled by some servomotors who actually move these parts and are also connected to some sensors that pass the readings back to a main processing unit. When you open the camera this processing unit will check to see if the lens assembly is able to do all of these 3 things. Failure to comply with even one of them will result in some error (lens error) or simply having the camera not opening. "Lens error" is a generic message, doesn't mean that the lens itself are damaged, could be the connector to their servomotors, sensor failure, some coils that are out of position and things like that. They are all related to the lens assembly. Because this is a VERY fragile part of any camera I don't suggest you to try a DiY repair because you can damage the lens even further. Even service centers have problems repairing this, most time it is done under a microscope and some times it simply can't be fixed. This problems occur most of the time in corelation with the camera being dropped or received some shocks but it can happen out from nowhere, just like that. I would recomand you to go to a service center. Try not the big ones that represent large corporations (because they are expensive), instead look for a smaller one. Tell them you have a lens assembly problem, ask them to make you a diagnostic and then ask for a cost estimate BEFORE they actually repair the camera. If the lens assembly is damaged beyound repair it will need to be changed as a whole, including all connectors, CCD sensor and so on. This could cost from $70 - $200 excluding labor parts that can be about $100. Therefore you should ask them a cost estimate. If your camera is still in waranty you just need to call one authorised service center to have it fixed for free. Good luck and please post back if you encounter any other problems.

My kodak dx7630 screen turn black/blank

There could be two causes - a dead imager (CCD) (most likely) or stuck lens shutter that won't open. They both are hardware problems, so I'm afraid you will have to give it away for a repair. As both of the problems are considered complicated to repair, it could get expensive. You should contact your local Kodak service center, as they should be the only ones with access to Kodak parts.

Sorry for the bad news.

Hope this helps!

first of all, this is not a solution. i think your camera's problem almost same with mine. i think your inner lens of your camera isn't totally opened, and it is same with my camera, which is cannot opened at all, maybe you dropped it or exposed it to water. if you go to kodak web site they suggest that you must take it back to the factory.

My screen reads "camera error # E21"

On my LS 743 Kodak Camera, that error refers to a lens mechanism problem. I was able to fix it by removing my front cover which had be come dented inward and short circuited some wiring. Re-shaping the cover fixed the problem. This will probably void your warranty...
