Question about Kodak EasyShare DX6440 Digital Camera

Camera shuts off after hitting the shutter button

My camera has started doing the same thing. I turn it on and it asks to set the date and time. I take one picture and as soon as I hit the shutter it turns off. I turn it back on and it asks to set the date and time again, then shuts right off after I hit the shutter to take one photo or if I activate the display window (to see what I'm taking a picture of) I've used countless new batteries. I do not have internal rechargeable batteries, but I've used rechargeable AND regular batteries. It would not even turn on at first, now it at least turns on, but suddenly shuts down after taking one photo. The problem started suddenly out of the blue. Any suggestions? I do remember a few weeks ago I plugged in the adapter to get my photos off the camera and it worked long enough for me to download my photos.

Your fix could be as simple as cleaning the camera's battery contacts, or it could be something more serious and expensive. Before you pay for expensive repairs that you may or may not need, check the Kodak Help Center by clicking on the link below. It uses a simple Q&A format to diagnose problems and propose solutions.

As soon as I turn it on, it shuts back off


Kodak offered no help with this problem and for my camera more than five years old no repair option was available. However, after thinking about this problem a solution was found. Perfectly charged old batteries and new batteries fully charged did not correct the problem. Here is what worked for me: With fully charged battery installed, place closed camera on EasyShare-One camera dock. With the the green light flashing, simultaneously depress both the power on/off button and the shutter button. With both these buttons held down, toggle the capture view switch from an intial down position to up, and then down position.Now release both the power on/off button and the shutter button simultaneously. This whole process takes about 20 seconds. Let the camera remain on the dock until the green light stops flashing. Remove the camera from the dock, open the camera back as usual and the screen will present you with date/time setup. Enter the date and time as required, hit the 'done' icon with the camera pen and the camera will now function normally. Why this works is speculative. However, the idea behind this method is to force a 'reboot' to factory settings by maximising conflicting electronic input signals.

How do you change the Date Time Stamp in the GoPro Hero series of cameras?


Taken from manual:
SETTING THE TIME AND DATE
You can set the time and date on the camera as long as the battery stays in the camera. Once the battery is
removed the time and date settings will be lost:
Symbol on LCD Screen Function
When you see "dAt" on the screen, press SHUTTER button to set the
time and date.
Press POWER/MODE button to toggle from Y09 (2009) to Y30 (2030).
Press SHUTTER to advance to next date setting.
Press POWER/MODE button to toggle from 01 (January) to 12 (December).
Press SHUTTER to advance to next date setting.
Press POWER/MODE button to toggle from d01 (1st day of month) to d31
(31st day of month). Press SHUTTER to advance to next date setting.
Press POWER/MODE button to toggle from H00 (12 a.m. military time) to H23
(11 p.m. military time). Press SHUTTER to advance to next date setting.
Press POWER/MODE button to toggle from 00 (zero minutes) to 59 (59
minutes). Press SHUTTER to advance to next date setting.
1. Once you select the "minutes" setting and press the SHUTTER button, you will return to the SEt entrance
for the settings menu.
EXITING THE SETTINGS MENU
When you see ESC on the screen, press the SHUTTER button to exit the SETTINGS MENU.

Many digital cameras have a 2nd disposable battery to remember settings like date and time, and where to put the pictures, when the rechargeable battery is removed,, but I don't believe that is the case with your camera. possibly you are not actually getting the time set correctly, since the camera will continue to ask for time & date setting every time the camera starts, if it is not set properly when it asks. Concerning internal memory- Can you transfer the images from internal memory to the memory sick when you do insert it, or is there a chance that the memory stick is defective, and therefore the camera doesn't record to it?

Shutter


try this:

1.turn on yer unit

2.press the menu button(if it gives you the "turn power off and on again message just switch to play mode or preview mode and access the menu from there.)

3.select setup(the option with the toolbox icon)

4.select setup 1 (not camera 1 ayt?)

5.select initialize and select OK for every prompt.

you\'ll know if you\'ve sucessfully initialized the camera if it will ask you to set the date and time.



if this does not work.... i guess it would be better to have th unit checked by an authorized serivicer.

Setting Correct Time and Date


hit the menu button, then hold the right display key and the mode button, pictures will come up with a camera,microphone, etc go to the one that has the tools on it and hit your shutter key. It will bring up date and time,language, Format storage,and tv output. Hit the sutter key on the date and time and it will bring up the place to change the date and time. I couldn't figure it out and my brother in law played around with it and got it set for me.

Camera shuts off when you click the shutter button


The same thing happened to mine. While not a solution, my workaround has been to turn the LCD screen off when I'm shooting. It's worked so far.

Blurry Pics and not able to set date/time


You can only set the date stamp in the “Post Card” resolution mode. Hit the “function” button, go down to the resolution selection (L, M, S, W, Postcard, etc.). Pick the “Post Card” setting. Hit the “menu” button and the “date stamp” menu will be active
