Hello

The problem is that the lens has become stuck in the barrel. 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. Please do not hesitate to let me know if you need any further assistance.

Regards
Andrea

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.

You have to Press the Set button and then when Set 1 Date appears you have to watch very carefully where the
"blinking" is happening and then use the Up or Down button to make the setting. After each number change press "Set" and the blinking will move to the next value. Continue the steps until all dates and times are set.
