Question about Kodak EasyShare CX6230 Digital Camera

Camera no longer connects to camera dock?

Someone in my family dropped our CX6230 camera on the floor last week. The camera itself still seems to work fine. The problem is that it no longer connects to the camera dock properly (there's no blinking red light on the camera dock or anything, it acts as if the camera isn't even there). The camera still fits into the dock properly and there doesn't seem to be any sepecific damage done to the connectors on the bottom of it, as far as I can tell. Anyone ever encounter a problem like this?

Oh, when the camera fell, the battery popped out and I had to reset the date and time. Don't know if that's relevant or not.

Re: Camera no longer connects to camera dock?

Oh i had the SAME problem...the wiring in the camera itself probably is wrecked...take it back to where you got it and see if they have the same camera still in stock and if they do DONT tell them you dropped it tell them it just stopped working,,

Will not let me upload pics says camera not connected to usb port

The error indicates that the computer is not getting an understandable signal from the camera (or dock if you are using one). The solution will be in discovering why the signal isn't getting through, or deciding that the camera or dock is defective.

Verify that the camera battery is charged. Then turn all devices (computer, dock and camera) off. Remove every cable and wire between computer and camera. Unplug power to the dock.

Examine each connection carefully. Look for dirt, bent pins, loose connections, or anything "strange". Look at the bottom of camera too, where it sits on the dock.

Reconnect the wires and cables, power everything up and see if any improvement.

If no improvement and you have WinXP or Vista, Do a System Restore back to a date when the camera connection was working. Restart and check for improvement.

If no improvement, check computer update history. Have any Microsoft updates been applied since the last time the camera connection worked? If so back them off and check for improvement.

If no improvement or no MS updates, decide that the camera or dock are defective and return them. Unfortunately, electronics sometimes fail. If you like the camera, give a replacement a chance.

Take the memory card out of the camera and copy the pics through a card reader.

Good Luck

Hi, someone drop my Ricoh R7 camera in the floor and since then the lens can not be withdrawn. It make some noise but isn't moving and doesn't switch on.

Unfortunately, many cameras that fall prey to lens error problems can only be corrected by professional repair. But, here are some last resort troubleshooting steps that you can try that may correct it. They only seem to work for less than 40% of the lens errors, but if the camera is out of warranty (or repair cost approaches that of the camera), they're worth that try.

How do I get the pics to download?

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.

Kodak DX6490 Not Charging

mine did the same thing, only it hadn't been dropped. Turns out, the battery went bad. The repairman said that the life of those batteries is only about 3 years average. He also said the average lifespan of the camera itself, with frequent usage, was only 3 years! I am still hoping to get the auto focus fixed on mine though. I sure did love that camera.

My camera keeps switching itself off!

I ordered some new batteries for it before posting my problem ,a dn after using the new batteries, the problem no longer exists. It seems that my batteries were so run-down that they just couldn't power the lens anymore or the flash at times

Kodak DX6440 won't power up using batteries

There's a chance that the drop is irrelevant to your problem. You could try using a small eraser to clean the battery contacts down in the chamber (make sure to dump out any eraser particles) and try a new CRV-3 battery, which because of it's slightly longer body produces a little more pressure on the contacts. If that doesn't work to improve things then your cam might need a repair, your call there. Good luck

When the EasyShare digital camera is not in use, and the battery is fully charged, can I leave the camera (turned off) in the dock?

The EasyShare camera dock automatically stops charging the batteries after it registers a full charge, so it is fine to leave the EasyShare digital camera on the EasyShare camera dock for short periods. However, leaving the camera on the dock for longer periods (days or weeks) is not recommended because this can cause problems with your camera and the batteries.
