Question about Kodak EasyShare DX6490 Digital Camera
I dropped my Kodak camera and the lens is in open position and when you look inside, it is crooked to the side. Still powers up, but can't retract lens.
Sorry to say you have broken the lens, replacement of the lens is the only practical repair and if you cant swap one yourself from a dead camera it would be beyond economical repair.
If you are adventurous you could buy a faulty one of ebay and swap the lens or if the faulty one has a broken screen or mode dial swap yours over to the faulty one..
there are a couple of "tricks" do getting this camera open drop me a line if you decide to proceed...
best of luck

I had the same thing happen to me i dropped my camera and the lenses were crooked so i placed my camera on the table and looked at the lenses and they were crooked on the outside to one side no wait...... i don't know if they were crooked one side of the lenses was stuck into the lens housing so i pulled it and it popped up and started working perfectly fine again at first i didnt know what the problem was and then i later found out if you dont know what the problem is send it to the repair shop or get a new one but try to straighten the lenses by force 50% of people reported that with success but it could also do even more damage to your camera if nothing works im sorry to say this but there are 2 options take it to a repair shop or get a new camera -im out
