    I have the same problem of no response when I push down on the cheap joystick control for this camera. I've used this very little and even though the camera is past its one year warranty, I think it should still be working!! I'd love to have an answer to this. I've recharged the battery but there isn't much else to do, other than throw the camera against a wall! Just kidding.

    Our joystick also does not function when pressing it in. It works up, down, and left. It doesn't seem to work to the right.

While trying to fix this problem today I discovered something that seems to help, at least in my case. If I push down on the small button located below the joystick/onoff button, while also tapping the OK button, the camera responds to the OK. (This is the display/info button.) I'm not sure why this works or whether it would help in every case, but it would be worth a try. I've been able to finally set my date and make other changes necessary after recharging my battery.

Speed lights flash alltogether at the same time chair will not run

The chair is in sleep mode or lockout mode. To unlock-- turn on the chair, immediately push the joystick straight forward until you hear a beep then push it straight back until you hear another beep then release to center. This should unlock the joystick. Turn the chair off then back on and you should get normal operation Hope this helps

Joystick won't work. I have to push straight down and then over to get any action, and then only sometimes does it work. It seems to have loosened.

Cameras have moving parts and therefore open spaces for dirt to get in and "gunk" things up- that's why they make camera cases- even storing your camera in a Zip Lock sandwich bag, is way better than the bottom of a purse.

the 5-way switch breaks it's solder connections on several Kodak models. if you have a soldering iron with a fine tip and are comfortable working on small soldering joints it is possible to repair the joystick (there are 10 solder connections on a 1/4 inch square switch, 3 on two sides and 2 on the other two sides)

My joystick only work up down and right

I had the same problem. I took my Z760 apart and put in a joystick from a used Z760. But the problem is that the joystick comes unglued from the small computer board. Take it apart and put a tiny drop of superglue on the joystick. Use a magnifier to line up the two little tabs in the proper holes. It should work fine.

Switch it on auto (or easy) first and see if focus works that way. If your on manual (or P) You have to use the joystick on the display to control the focus. All you do is push the center button on the joystick, move the joystick down to focus, press the center on the joystick and adjust it left or right. Press the center on the joystick when corrected.

Kodak easy share self-timer

You use the the self timer as follows:
(1) Push the Menu button on back of camera
(2) Scroll through the Menu items using the small joystick located in the center of your circular selector switch, until you highlight the self timer ON/OFF area
(3) Push the small joystick straight in, like a button
(4) Use the joystick to highlight the on position
(5) Push the joystick button
(6) & just snap the picture as usual.
You will have to use the viewfinder instead of the screen to point the camera.
Hope this helps
