Question about Kodak EasyShare DX6490 Digital Camera
The lens on my DX6490 will not come into correct focus. The auto focus mechanism is working but I think the lens may be out of position slightly. The camera was dropped and everything works except this. All the pictures I take are blurred. Can I fix this myself or if I have to get it repaired is it worth the cost? Thanks.
It will be a repair shop job to do properly and will cost - lots So bearing in mind the the mechanism is very delicate and the drop may have wrecked it anyway you have nothing to lose I feel in trying very very gently giving the partially out lens a little tug- you cant break it worse thats for sure Try it--------- Then go buy another camera ;-}

The lens focus error is due to failure of the lens control system.In this case it can be a mechanical DISLOCATION and so might need to open to reset the mechanism. You can remove battery and card replace battery and while switching on tap the lens hood on your hands so as to disengage any dirt or mechanism being struck.
Use some air to blow between the lens to dislodge any sand particles struck inside. Unless you are familiar with handling of small devices must the camera be opened. If so check the voltage on the motor drive, check the auto focus and Zoom drives, it must be free with manual movement. If jammed the motor can be removed and realased. If none of these works then you can think of taking consensus with the service centre.
Get estimate before you decide. It will be good to have it checked at the authorised service as you do not have to run around for spares.
