Kodak DX7440 Loose joystick

I have a Kodak DX7440 camera. I've had it since 2004 and have loved it, although have had some common issues as seen on this site, my problem this time is that the joystick is too "loose." I use this term as I'm not sure if it is truly broken or just that, loose. It moves too freely and is hard to advance on the review or setting the date when the battery is replaced. The "enter" part of the joystick works to accept something but I have to play with the left,right, up and down advances. Is there anything I can do to fix the problem if it is known. I was thinking of retiring the camera and getting a new one but want to give it one more chance.

SOURCE: Replacement Battery Cover Assembly

If you're handy, you can replace it in about 3 minutes. Don't attempt it unless you're willing to risk tearing a thin flexible circuit under the rear cover. Looking at the camera from the rear, remove the screws on the right hand side ( 2 ? ) then the screws across the bottom - open the card door, remove the card, and wedge a knife blade between the front and rear cover halves - the card door will be loose with an attached spring coming free. No need to remove the rear housing completely, just enough to expose the tracks for the battery cover hinge. Remove the old door, noting the position of the opening spring at the hinge, by angling one hinge out first. Insert the new battery cover and the card door in reverse order.

My Kodak camere was really not dropped. I put in new batteries and the camera only gives me one shot and I have to turn it off and try again. I can plug the camera into a charge cord and I can take all the pictures I want. Is it possible the 2 batteries are not enough to power the camera

SOURCE: reset date/time stamp

Here is the only information I could find for you. This is a link to the extended user manual. You want to look in two different places. The 1st place to look is "setting up your camera". From there there is a heading for setting up the date and time and language. The 2nd place would be "Doing more with your camera"

Hope this helps.

SOURCE: V610 KODAK ERROR E45

This problem is frequently due to weak/worn out batteries or corroded battery terminals inside the camera. If charging/replacing the batteries does not clear the problem, remove the batteries and wipe the terminals with a soft cloth (heavy corrosion may require a fine wire brush, steel wool, or sandpaper). Remove any residue left in the camera by the cleaning. Clean the terminals on the batteries in the same manner, and then replace them in the camera. This cures most problems, but if it doesn't work for you, check the Kodak troubleshooting guide at:

http://www.kodak.com/global/en/service/repair/troubleshooting/troubleshooting.jhtml?pq-path=6198

It uses a simple Q&A format to diagnose problems and propose solutions.

Difficulty formatting new memory card for a Kodak Easy Share DX7440


The DX7440 works with MMC and SD cards, which max out at 2GB. While your 4GB SDHC card fits into the slot, it is electronically incompatible and will not work with this camera. You need to stay with SD cards, 2GB and smaller.

How do I format a memory card in this DX7440 kodak camera?


Go to Format by pressing the MENU button on your camera. You will see several options, one being 'Memory Card'. Press this, using your central button (on dial) and note that it will delete anything you may already have on the card ie if you used it for something other than the camera.

Is the kodak dx7440 compatible with the sdhc cards?


Hi. Kodak DX7440 is using standard SD card or MMC card up to 1GB (some says it will read 2 to 4GB standard SD but I haven't tried). SDHC is high capacity, 4GB above and will not work on your camera.

Lens won't extend when switched on


Hi,
I would like to know what mode are you clicking these photos in.. because overexposure is due to either slow shutter speeds or large aperture. Try setting the camre mode according to the surrounding light conditions.. for example, no need of flash when you are clicking pictures in broad day light, instead of setting the camera on Auto mode, try using Portrait mode for short distance (5 to 6 meters away) objects etc..
Let me know if that fixes the issue.

And important .. Do not forget to rate the solution :D

Thanka and Regards,
Srinivas

Bad USB Port in Camera


I think you CAN--there's a lovely site with specific instructions,,,, Do It Yourself Camera Repair --- for fabulous step by step instructions WITH pictures & simple explanations that a novice can follow!!!

In short, all you need to do is find another USB port (even from a broken camera or other device) to replace yours. It seems that you'll need to solder it in -? - that's the step I'm trying to research right now--I'd like to just glue mine back in because I don't know how to solder--- but the tricky part is getting the camera apart, not touching the flash capacitator nor any of it's power-holding chips, and not damaging any of the other components.

Good luck!

DX7440 messed up lens blurry distorted


You can only find out by opening the camera
Then you will not be able to get it repaired
Chances are it will not be repairable any way because of age.
So go for the New one.
Then open the old one - you get lucky you may just figure how to fix it - but dont hold your breath
Then if you are lucky you will have two cameras
Now beat that

Kodak easy share self-timer


Hi,
You use the the self timer as follows:
(1) Push the Menu button on back of camera
(2) Scroll through the Menu items using the small joystick located in the center of your circular selector switch, until you highlight the self timer ON/OFF area
(3) Push the small joystick straight in, like a button
(4) Use the joystick to highlight the on position
(5) Push the joystick button
(6) & just snap the picture as usual.
You will have to use the viewfinder instead of the screen to point the camera.
Hope this helps
