I recently had this problem after a trip to a sandy beach. The solution was to take the camera apart and blow out all the sand and dust. To help you get it apart, take off all the obvious outside screws and then unhinge the back and front, with the hinge point being the top. The back and screen can easily be removed by tugging on the cables where they fix into the circuit board. (Just push the large cable back in, for the smaller cable you need to use the little hinge on it (initially put the hinge towards the edge of the camera, insert the small cable, then fold the hinge back towards the centre of the camera. Continue to take out small silver coloured screws with a jeweler's screwdriver. I was able to get to the elecromechanical optical train in this way. I did not have to remove the tiny black screws inside this unit. After thorough cleaning and blowing out dust/ sand etc. the camera was fairly easy to put back together. Total time was about 90 minutes. Note: there was no need to take off any of the buttons on the top, nor to take out the battery nor memory card. Good luck.

It is a common, but in most cases intermittent problem with many cameras regardless of brand/model. I also own Kodak DX7440 since late 2004, and I had this problem twice, in 2007 and 2008. First suggestion: fully recharge the battery, it helped me the first time. Second: play with the lens cover, that is try to open/close it with the camera on/off. With me, in 5 min of these attempts, it suddenly fixed itself and stays this way for one month now. Another suggestion: dont use a toothpick, since it can scratch the lens. Use a q-tip, and to avoid cotton threads sticking to lens, wet the q-tip and let it dry.

Try the command code switch. I recently had a similar problem when my remote suddenly stopped working. It worked fine one time but nothing the next time I tried it.
I checked the emitter with a digital camera and found it was not working. I did the remote reset (remove batteries and push all the buttons twice, reinsert batteries) and the emitter was now working. However, the remote would still not control the base unit. I did the remote base code reset (push power, volume and TV/DVD buttons together) but this did not help. I then checked the command code switch. This is a small three position slide switch located in the battery compartment on the remote. I slid the switch back and forth several times returning to the default number one setting where it was before. I did not change anything on the base unit but the remote now worked.
Hope this helps.

The Lens may start going in and out when the Lens mechanism is stuck or when affected by any malfunction. If turning the power on
and off again does not resolve the issue, try doing a power reset and Initialize option.
Performing a manual power reset
Turn off the camera.
Remove the battery pack.
Press and hold the power button for 30 seconds.
Allow the camera to remain without power for 60
Reinsert the battery pack.
Turn on the camera.
To reset the Camera back to factory default,
select the INITIALIZE Option from the SET UP1 Menu of the Camera to OK.This
will set the user defined settings back to factory default. The images and
videos will not get deleted.
If the issue persists, service may be required. For getting the unit serviced, you have to contact the Sony Authorized service centre or factory service centre. You can contact Sony here.
