Question about Kodak EasyShare DX7440 Digital Camera

2 Answers

Battery lock I broke the battery lock while trying to insert the battery. I brought it to a camera repair shop who said that they are encountering problems getting spare parts for this camera and especially a replacement lock. I live in Dublin can anybody recommend another camera repair shop that may locate or have the part. It is only 2 years old.

Re: battery lock

If you can’t find a fix there is a guy in South Carolina who sells good used parts. I bought a LCD from him for $39.00 and it works great. I think his email is

Re: battery lock

Probably not. Parts for digi cameras are notorious for non availability The general feeling is it seems that among certain brands and model levels they are considered 'disposable' like computer parts, kettle and toasters. Adhesive or gaffer tape would seem to be the answer.

Battery button broke

Well, you might try a jeweler to do the tiny work inside your camera. The other place, besides the Factory, would be a Camera repair place. Look in your local phonebook.

On attempted power-up, camera begins to start up, then gives off three beeps and shuts down.

Check your battery condition and see if its full charged. If you pass this step, check if the battery is seated correctly in its place. Try to power on the cam with a DC connection and see if its doing the same symptom. If after this step you encounter the same problem, get your card out and try to start it without memory card, If again the problem persists, try to check it at a professional repair shop for a possible defective board.

I've brought a usb cable to charge this camera, and it still doesn't work. I've tried everything except a new battery. I dont wanna buy a batty and that isn't the problem

Did you try a charging cradle? If you know how to use a voltage meter you can check the battery yourself or have you local camera shop or battery shop such a as batteries plus check it for you.

1. Ensure batteries are fully charged.
2. Look carefully between the lens and the camera body for any sand, dirt or any damaged etc.
3. Try turning the camera with the lens facing down and shake to dislodge anything stuck
4. Try removing batteries and memory card, wait 5 minutes and refit the battery only.

When I try to insert a memory stick into my sony cyber-shot dsc-p20 it won't lock in place and I can't close the door. Help!

Try quickly pushing the card in and letting it go, fast. Keep trying this and see if the card finally locks, you could have a build up of fluff on the latching mechanism. doing this could free the fluff and problem solved.
Its also possible that the latching mechanism has dislodged which means a dismantle at a repair shop.

Will not power on

It should power on using internal memory. Your problem is normally due to weak/dead batteries. Make sure that you have fresh batteries, or freshly charged batteries, installed. If changing the batteries out does not eliminate the problem, the camera is a likely candidate for the repair shop.
