Question about Kodak EasyShare DX7590 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Kodak DX7590.. accidentally dropped it in a waterfall.. it was under water for only a few seconds.. I took everything out (battery, memory card, etc etc) and let it dry out before trying again. Now it will come on, start up and act as if it is okay, but then immediately shut back down. Should I just ditch it and buy another (don't really want to do that because I love this camera...), or ???.. Any suggestions would be most helpful!

    Dropped mine in a tank at SeaWorld. It hasn't been turning on at all. Today, it came on for the first time, but then shut back down. When I place it on the camera dock, the battery light indicator goes from green to a flashing red. Is this fixable????

When you guys say "I let it dry out" - how do you know that it was completely dry?
You don't! I bet they both still have moisture in them.

You need to be proactive about the drying process and remember that water can get in but can't get out anything like as easily. You need to get he camera warmed up in a breeze. Best option is an electric blow heater with the camera 80cm or so in front of it. Rotate it every 10 mins for an hour. Make sure it doesn't get over about 45 degrees C.
Even better for the brave, crack it open, and do the above. Water can hide in the tiny spaces on circuit boards and component legs and getting these areas warm to encourage evaporation is what we're about here.
Salt water is a much greater problem since you can introduce a film of salt onto everything as the water evaporates. This usually means the camera has to be opened and cleaned.

Hope this helps,
dave.

Why is my camera going round and round in circle when trying to format my memory card?


I'm suspecting that you are trying to use a new 4GB or larger SDHC card with your older model camera. Please note that your model camera can only use 2GB or less standard SD cards (and NOT SDHC). 2GB SD cards are inexpensive, and still available on Amazon.com if your local store no longer carries them.

Just bought this Kodak Easyshare DX7590 used. Radio Shack sold us a 4 GB SD card for it. When we insert it into the camera, it says "Memory card needs formatting". When we try to format it, it...


The 4GB card is actually an SDHC card. While SDHC cards will fit into SD slots, they are electronically incompatible and will not work. You need to use SD cards 2GB and smaller with the DX7590.

I have a Kodak EasyShare DX7590. Love it, works great. All of a sudden I can't load pics from the docking station to my computer. Everything is hooked up correctly. It even clicks as if the pictures are...


Consider NOT connecting your camera to your computer.

The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.

Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use any photo cataloging program.

I have an 8G memory card that I cannot get formatted for a kodak easyshare DX7590 from a cannon format. What do I do? I've put it in the camera and told it to format it but it won't.


Get an SD card.

The DX7590 works with SD (and MMC) cards. Your 8GB card is actually an SDHC card and thus will not work. You'll have to stay with cards 2GB and smaller.

Hi, our kodak dx7590 will start up but a 30seconds


1. Make sure you will install a new or fully charged battery/batteries into your camera. Please use lithium batteries Ni-Mh or rechargeable Batteries (2000 M.Amp or higher). 2. Clean the battery contacts. a. Remove the battery/batteries and the memory card from your camera, then wipe the battery contacts with a soft, clean cloth. b. Reinstall the battery/batteries into your camera 3. Turn on your camera without the memory card. (If it works then it?s your memory card that is faulty)

Cant find previously review pic


The internal memory is very small and wouldn't hold very many pictures. Try using a separate card reader to download your pics to your computer.
