Question about Kodak EasyShare DX6440 Digital Camera

2 Answers

Start and die

When I turn on my Kodak EasyShare DX6440, The green light and "Reading memory card" splash screen appear, then the camera shuts off. When I change batteries, the splash screen appears and then it tells me that the date and time have been reset. I set the date and time, press continue, and then the green light goes out and the camera shuts off. The lens never came out. Multiple sets of different batteries have been tried, and now the splash screen appears for a shorter time before shutting dow. Is it time for a new camera? No difference when taking memory card out and starting up. We cleaned the battery terminals in the camera and batteries with an eraser, no change.

I have the same/similar problem. I could hear the camera attempting to extend the lens. Camera shut down after timeout.

Disassembled camera & found two teeth missing from plastic gear in gearbox attached to lens motor. Don't know yet if part(s) are available.

Camera had light use. Patheticly short life & that Kodak didn't use stronger nylon gears. Bought a barely use Kodak P880 recently, & the autofocus died shortly after. Web search showed others had same failure. I'll never buy another Kodak camera.

Could be time for a new camera But check out Kodak Support first. It has been said that cameras in a certain price band[any make/model] are to be considered as disposable -like toasters and kettles I guess.

I purchased a 4 GB SDHC card for my kodak easy share dx6440. The camera keeps rejecting it because 'it is not formatted'. I formated it and it still does not read it. is the DX6440 limited to SD 2GB? ...


The DX6440 uses SD cards. While SDHC cards will fit into the slot, they are electronically incompatible and won't work. You are limited to SD cards 2GB and smaller.

Make sure that you are using a fully charged battery and of course the recommended battery for your camera such as 2 AA lithium battery or Ni-mh battery. If you already done with all this thing it time to contact Kodak at 1 800 235 6325 ext 12 and send your camera for repair

DX6440 internal memory. cord misplaced that came


I understand your quarry as you misplaced the U-4 USB cord used for connecting the camera with the computer.

KODAK no longer carries this item for sales. I suggest that you use a card reader instead. A card reader can be purchased in any store carrying technical equipment.

Stuck :(


My Kodak DX6440 did the same thing. After sending it to Kodak's third-party repair (as per Kodak), they called to say it was not fix-able. Kodak's response was "No parts available" and offered 10% off list price of a refurbished camera. ...Big sports ...Way to keep customer loyalty If you choose Kodak, the cameras are good but buy them knowing they are a disposable item.
