Hello,This is a major problem with this series Kodak camera, as they age the switch either stops working or just falls apart !! The cost to repair would exceed the cost of a newer camera on E-Bay, I would stay away from this style control unless camera is new. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: joystick

While trying to fix this problem today I discovered something that seems to help, at least in my case. If I push down on the small button located below the joystick/onoff button, while also tapping the OK button, the camera responds to the OK. (This is the display/info button.) I'm not sure why this works or whether it would help in every case, but it would be worth a try. I've been able to finally set my date and make other changes necessary after recharging my battery.

SOURCE: my joystick only work up down and right

I had the same problem. I took my Z760 apart and put in a joystick from a used Z760. But the problem is that the joystick comes unglued from the small computer board. Take it apart and put a tiny drop of superglue on the joystick. Use a magnifier to line up the two little tabs in the proper holes. It should work fine.

SOURCE: joystick blinks orange light

It sounds like it could be a couple of different things but it will be hard to tell without having the camera right in my hands. First you might want to check to see if you have a SD card in the cmaera. The internal memory may be full of your images and there is no room for anymore. If you have a sd card already in the camera then make sure it is not over 2gb. That model will only accomodate a 2gb card and nothing more.

Hope this helps

Nutron r51


The age of the Nutron is not the issue, unfortunately. I have seen problems with this model right out of the box. The joystick control is the first area to check. If you have to compensate the joystick so far to the right to correct, you may have a damaged joystick gimbal. You may also have a bad joystick control board or damaged connecting cable to the controller on the bottom frame. Check for damaged, pinched loose or disconnected wiring below at the controller module. With a folding frame it is easy for the wiring to be become damaged or dislodged. Check for cut damaged pinched wiring at the joystick. With a handheld programmer (dealer) you can check for error codes in the fault log. With a poor performance issue there may not be a fault recorded in the log of the computer module. I have also seen these motors fail prematurely. In this case your left motor is dragging or weak causing the chair to go left. With a programmer (dealer tool) you can compensate for this while waiting for new parts(temp fix). Sometimes the motor brushes burn or hang up. Try blocking up the chair off the ground and run it no load to check for motor performance and unusual sounds. Check for joystick dead spots or uneven action. A quick check of the joystick would be to plug in a known good one at the dealer to test. With the chair blocked up try tapping the motor housing to see if the performance changes. Inspect the brushes if you have access to the brush caps.Check the obvious first, plugs, pinched, broken wires and partial plug disconnects and corrosion. If you have a voltmeter you can do some checks on the motors and brakes. Going from memory, the motor leads large black and large red should read zero ohms with the 2 small white wires for the brake reading between 60 and 70 ohms. Check the Invacare manufacturer website for exact specs and technical info for this model.
Hope this helps.

My computer is unresponsive to the joystick; I plugged it into the usb port a message confirmed it was installed and ready for use but nothing happens when I move the joystick in a flight simulator or...


Hello, Here's the solution to your problem, you have to configure the games you're playing for the joystick to work, I believe all games have this option, ussualy in the "configure keyboard and mouse" options menu, click on any funcion you want your joystick to use for each button, and then press the button you want for that function, do that with all buttons of the joystick you want to use, some games need the joystick axis to be configured, just click on left/right and move your joystick in the desired direction, same procedure to up/down, if your joystick has a throttle wheel, do the same for it (if needed).
Procedure is simple and most games has small variants of this procedures I gave you, but they are simple to figure out.
Hope my solution helps, have a nice day :)

Z525a screen comes on but stays vacant.


If you have access to a laptop computer that has an Infrared Port or Bluetooth communications, you can download your videos and picture files via either of these two methods. I use an old IBM Thinkpad 600 with IR port to download mine. You have to put your z525 phone into Infrared mode first, its kind of tricky with out seeing what you are doing. First, open your phone, press upper right (-) sign to get menu, click joystick control down 2 times then right 1 time. next press upper left (-) sign to select. next joystick right 4 times, and down 1 time. press upper left (-) sign, then joystick up 1 time. press upper left (-) 1 time. Your Infrared Port will now be turned on, and your I.R. enabled laptop can now receive the files from your phone. Close your phone, open it again, press upper right (-) , press joystick down 1 time, then left 1 time, then press the joystick center select button 2 times. Joystick right 1 time, press joystick select 1 time. press upper right (-) 1 time, joystick down 5 times, joystick right 1 time, joystick down 3 times, joystick center select 1 time. Hold the lower left corner of your phone toward the I.R. port of the laptop, it will receive the first photo file in your camera pictures file. Another possible method would be to obtain a usb connector cable for the z525 phone to connect it to your computer. Using the usb cable the computer would recognize the phone, you could click on the phone icon, under "MyComputer" and transfer the files to your hard drive. I hope this helps. -Mike

Joystick


It is rather frequent problem with Nokia.
If your mobile warranty is expired then try to disassemble your phone and clear you joystick of dirt.
If it doesn't help then nothing can be done but bringing it to service.
As far as I remember menus on 6600 are not recurring so you can not use only up direction to reach icons that are below. I did so on E70 when had he same problem with joystick.

Right Joystick. . .


I had this same problem with my 360 controller (after modding it, but the solution should be the same..) If you pull up on any 360 joystick it will stick the same way.

The quickest fix would be to take some sandpaper on the inside of where the joystick touches the controller shell, sand it down just enough so the joystick is moving smoothly.

More professional ways would be to cut the little piece of metal that sticks out and goes into the joystick. Just a very small amount, too much will make it hard to press the right thumbstick button.
You could also try some old fashioned grease, just a little bit on the inside, nothing noticeable from the outside.

Also make sure the controller is put back together right, I've taken apart many 360 controllers and sometimes joysticks stick when there's a wire in the wrong place and the shell won't close all the way. (The rumble motors particularly).
Hope this helped!
