Question about Kodak EasyShare DX4530 Digital Camera
Camera is 4 years old and has taken very detailed pictures. Recently the zoom operation has become 'stiff' and the auto focus is not at sharp as it was. Can the lens assembly be accessed and cleaned or lubricated? Kodak's cost of repair is excessive and I have 3 accessory lenses that are not usable with Kodak's current offerings.
Yes, the lens can be cleaned and repaired. But you need to almost completely disassemble the camera. If you are very good at mechanical repair on small items you can fix it. You need to be very patient. If you have big fingers like I do forget it. It's why I hired women to do my fine assembly work. You need the "jeweler's" touch if you know what I mean. The inside workings of the camera are really small and require a Magnifier with a light to see. Jewelers screw drivers and tweezers. Use Methanol to clean and not acetone. Alcohol works but Methanol is better. All the connectors are micros and irreplaceable if broken. The screw sizes (0-80 series and smaller)are mixed so care must be taken when replacing in the right location. If all this doesn't scare you then good luck.
