Spots inside lense

I have had a Kodak DX6490 camera for almost two years. Just lately it has gotten white dust (?) spots inside the lense. You can see them quite clearly and they are almost sparkly. The problem is that they show up on the finished photo. What do I do???

Re: spots inside lense

Your lens needs to be disassembled, cleaned and re-assembled. It should only be done by a certified camera repair shop. It isn't something that you should try to do yourself. It will not be very expensive to have this done, probably in the neighborhood of $50.00.

How to install fisheye lens and adapter on kodak dx6490. Do I have to remove existing AF lens

No, you do not remove the existing lens. You need to purchase a lens adapter tube that fits around the existing lense. This adapter threads onto the inside bezel on the camera at the base of the lens assembly. Additional converter lenses and filters fit onto this. My adapter has 55mm threading for filters.

I have moister inside the lense of my kodak easy share dx6490. How do I open it so that I can dry the lense

Hello Steve, There is no easy way to open the camera,your best bet is to just let it set in a warm dry area for a couple of days.This usually occurs during times of high humidity or from a rapid change in camera temperature like warm indoors to cold outdoors.
Best Regards, Russell

How to realign kodak dx6490

Hello Teacher, Since we have nothing to lose but a DX6490 try to gently push the lens housing in with the palm of your hand until it is fully seated, then gently pull the lens assembly out to it's extended position,now gently push it back in. Install battery and turn it on to see what happens. If this works, great, if it does not work list the camera on E-Bay for parts and I may buy it !!!
Best Regards, Russell

Kodak dx6490 Powers up and shuts itself off.Battery is charged!

Hello, Sounds like you may have a battery problem. The DX6490 battery loses it's capacity over time, If the battery is a couple years old they are known to fail. May not be any problem with camera, try a new battery and let it charge completely before installing it.
Best Regards, Russell

Kodak DX6490 error E45

this is actually a known problem or defect with this camera. Sometimes, if you point this out to kodak, they will fix it. I would go to the kodak site and write to them about it, or if there is a number, call that number. This didn't happen to me, but I came across this information when researching a different problem with the same model camera. I wish I could point you to the exact info, but it was a while back. The forum that I was on...some people were able to get their camera fixed, even though it was past warranty, and some were not.

Spots of faded color in my pictures

Hello Kathy, The problem Sounds like a faulty CCD unit, The only other reason would be scratches on the lens that you would be able to see.
Either way it will be quite costly on a DX6490 camera. you may be better off selling yours for parts and buying another DX6490 in good working order so you can still use your accessories such as,battery,charger,memory card etc.I have several nice ones for sale.
Hope this helps,
Best Regards,Russell

Spot on every shot

Your sensor may have gotten dust on it to confirm this, set camera to a small aperture eg. f22 and take a picture of a white page then set camera to a large aperture eg f3.3 ant take the same picture. If it is dust you will see the spot on the shot taken at f22 and not the one taken at f3.3. This can be solved by having the sensor cleaned. If the gray spot is on both images you most likely have a damaged sensor
