Hello

The problem is that the lens has become stuck in the barrel after dropping it. There are some DIY solutions you could try, but the probability is that you will have to get it fixed by a professional.

Use these at own risk as it may further damage the camera.

Firstly , try connecting your ac adapter or usb cable.

Try holding the shutter button while switching on the camera.

Look at the lens , and if some of the lens 'circles' is misaligned or not concentric then try wiggling it (while holding camera lens down).

Try gently pushing or pulling the lens when it extends but this is risky as it may cause the lens barrel to slip out of its guidance system.

Another way to do this is to place the camera lens down on a hard surface and then power it up. Be sure to use a soft cloth or something similar as to not scratch your lens or casing. Let the lens push the camera up and down a few times and sometimes the little resistance provided by the camera is enough to get things going again.

Try hitting your camera near the lens on the body with the soft tissue on the palm of your hand.

Other than that , I would take the camera to a repair center for a evaluation to see if it would cost more to repair than to replace the camera.

If it is still under warranty I would suggest you take it in before trying any of these steps and remove any off-brand batteries or accessories as some stores are really fussy about warranty repairs on camera's with non-brand accessories.

Hope the advise is useful.

Regards
Andrea

My kodak easyshare dx7630 will not power on or I don't know how, can you please tell me how


I found instructions online here: http://webcache.googleusercontent.com/search?q=cache:YS5DhgIqJHEJ:resources.kodak.com/support/pdf/en/manuals/urg00230/DX7630_GLB_en.pdf+kodak+easyshare+dx7630&cd=4&hl=en&ct=clnk&gl=us&source=www.google.com
It says the following: While pressing the Mode dial lock, turn the Mode dial from Off to Auto .
The Power ring glows green. The camera screen turns on. The Ready light blinks green while the camera performs a self-check, then turns off when the camera is ready.
To turn off the camera, turn the Mode dial to off.
Hope that helps.

Joystick not working. The cam turns on and prompts for date and time to be set. The only thing I can get it to do id to move the curser up and down. I can't slect anything to continue to set the date &...


To reset the date connect Camera to PC. Open Easyshare Software, Go to Tools and Select SYNC. This will usually set the Camera Time/Date to the PC Time and Date. I have the same problem,(DX7630) cannot Move to the Right or use the Enter on Joy Stick so I am stuck with the Settings that were used last. I have contacted Kodak and there are No replacement Parts available. Just Great, I have a perfectly working Camera($500) and all accessories but it is basically useless due to a defective $1.00 Part. Last Kodak I will ever Buy.

My kodak dx7630 screen turn black/blank


Hi!
There could be two causes - a dead imager (CCD) (most likely) or stuck lens shutter that won't open. They both are hardware problems, so I'm afraid you will have to give it away for a repair. As both of the problems are considered complicated to repair, it could get expensive. You should contact your local Kodak service center, as they should be the only ones with access to Kodak parts.
I work in a Kodak service center.

Sorry for the bad news.

Hope this helps!
