Question about Kodak EasyShare DX7590 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Our 7 year old Kodak digital camera works as good as new. But the flash door will not open. We have a new battery and that has not helped. Can we open the door with out damage to the camera?

I press the flash button for the door to open and the door does not open. The camera picture taking is still very good, except for this problem.

Hello Martha, Sounds like the spring mechanism that operates the flash lid has a spring problem, you can manually open the flash but it will not stay in the raised position without the spring unit working,it has nothing to do with the battery,it is an internal mechanical problem.
Best Regards, Russell

SOURCE: Kodak DX6440 won't power up using batteries

There's a chance that the drop is irrelevant to your problem. You could try using a small eraser to clean the battery contacts down in the chamber (make sure to dump out any eraser particles) and try a new CRV-3 battery, which because of it's slightly longer body produces a little more pressure on the contacts. If that doesn't work to improve things then your cam might need a repair, your call there. Good luck

SOURCE: button does not work

hi
Some of those buttons work in combination with the two dials (i.e., setting ISO and white balance, etc.). Hold a buttin down and user the knobs simoultaneously.
If this is not the issue, please describe specifically which buttons are not workin...

thank u rate me!!

SOURCE: KODAY DC3400 BATTERY DOOR BROKE

Easy Fix-
I had the same problem. Place the camera upside down with the battery door to your right. There is a plastic plate with the eject switch to the left. It has three philips screws. Get a jewlers screwdriver (Any hobby store, Harbour Freight, etc.) Take out the three small screws. Don't lose them. Get a razor blade and pry up the plate in the line just to the right of the top right screw. Only pry up about an 1/8 of an inch and only that corner not the whole plate. Then you can slant the new battery door so that the top part goes to the left under the plate and then straigten it out so that the tabs seat in the grooves. Repace the screws. Voila.
Good Luck,
-Joe

I have a kodak easyshare c533 camera and it won't turn on. I tried new batteries but all it does is flash the green light. Any ways to fix this?


Green light flashed, turned red, lens would not open. Put in new rechargeable batteries, still nothing. Someone here suggested to try regular AA cheapie batteries. IT WORKED!

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.

As soon as I turn it on, it shuts back off


Kodak offered no help with this problem and for my camera more than five years old no repair option was available. However, after thinking about this problem a solution was found. Perfectly charged old batteries and new batteries fully charged did not correct the problem. Here is what worked for me: With fully charged battery installed, place closed camera on EasyShare-One camera dock. With the the green light flashing, simultaneously depress both the power on/off button and the shutter button. With both these buttons held down, toggle the capture view switch from an intial down position to up, and then down position.Now release both the power on/off button and the shutter button simultaneously. This whole process takes about 20 seconds. Let the camera remain on the dock until the green light stops flashing. Remove the camera from the dock, open the camera back as usual and the screen will present you with date/time setup. Enter the date and time as required, hit the 'done' icon with the camera pen and the camera will now function normally. Why this works is speculative. However, the idea behind this method is to force a 'reboot' to factory settings by maximising conflicting electronic input signals.

Kodak easy share digital camera m863


I have a Easy Share M863 and have had it less than a year. It was working great and then last week I tried turning it on and it would not open. I thought it might be the battery needed charging so I did that. It still will not open. I contacted Kodak and they told me they would give me 15% on a new digital camera. That is not what I wanted. My camera is not even a year old. It should have lasted longer I think.

Put brand new batteries in camera took three pic then they die


Hi, you will only solve this by buying the official KODAK battery (KLIC-8000) - NZD52.00 retail here in New Zealand. Even the generic CR3V rechargeable batteries dont work, so dont waste your $$ on them.
Even now, with the 'official' battery, when taking flash photos or zooming a lot, I find that it is only taking around 150 - 200 shots, when Kodak boast over 400.
But I must say the capabilities of the camera (esp the quality video) outstrip any annoyance battery wise.
Hope this helps, regards Wayne

Kodak DX3900 camera can't get power from battery


Remove the batteries and clean the battery contacts inside the camera with a soft cloth (a heavy buildup on the contacts may require cleaning with a fine wire brush, steel wool, or sandpaper). Remove any residue that the cleaning leaves in the camera, and then reinstall the batteries. This clears most power-on problems, but if yours persists, check the Kodak troubleshooting guide at:

Remove the batterty andclean the internal battery contact with an
eraser on the end of a pencil- take a flash light to look inside the compartment to enfure they are bright and clean.
Make sure the battery door and contact srip are a good tight fit
Hold the door down with a finger whilst switching on
Other than that there is little moreyou can do
