Hello Jonboy, Well it sounds like you are out nothing but the cost of the new battery !!!!!The lens being stuck out part way is normally a drive system malfunction and the reason you are getting the DREADED BLUE SCREEN.This model due to age is not worth the repair cost.Sell it on E-Bay for parts.
Hope this helps.
Best Regards, Russell

SOURCE: kodak camera dropped lens cockeyed stuck open

Lens errors are fairly common. Usually it's sand or grit interfering with the lens extension mechanism. Or the camera's been dropped with the lens extended. Or the camera has been powered on, but the lens had been blocked preventing its extension. Or the battery ran down with the lens extended ...

Here's some things that you can do to try to correct it. They only seem to work for less than 50% of the lens errors, but if the camera is out of warranty, they're worth a try:

a jpeg is not a standard photo file. You want to set it for jpg. Take the USB hub out of the connection. Connect the camera or card reader directly to the USB port.

SOURCE: how to install fisheye lens and adapter on kodak

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.

Purchased new memory card. camera screen said to format card, camera will not format card please isnsert another. new card is kodak 8gb sdhc. it works in a different kodak camera


The DX6490 works with MMC and SD cards. While an SDHC card will fit into the slot, it is electronically incompatible and will not work. Some Kodak cameras can use SDHC cards, but the DX6490 is not one of them. You need to go with SD cards, 2GB and smaller.

My Kodak Easy Share DX6490 will not turn on. When I place it on the charging dock, the lights flash like it is transferring photos to my computer and the flashing won't stop even if I remove the camera...


Hello, sounds like you have a faulty battery,if the battery is several years old it will lose the capacity to boot the camera and the dock is trying to charge a defective battery,if you get a new battery, charge it for at least 6 hours or more.Hope this solves your problem.

Well my friend dropped the camrea and it wont turn on it blinked first but then after i took the battery out and put it back in the camrea it stopped blinking what do i ?


Hello Kerry, Sounds like your friend owes you a camera. If your Dx6490 took a good hit you can bet there is internal damage. This will be a very costly repair. The current selling price for a nice used one will be cheaper than fixing the one you have.Believe me, I work on these as a hobby now.

A stupid mistake and now my kodak easyshare dx6490 lens comes off


Hello, This happens quite often and the bad news is it is not worth the cost of repair,the good news is you can sell it on E-Bay for parts and by a good used one to replace it.If you buy a good used DX6490 you can still use your battery,charger,and other items from your old camera.
I have several very nice DX6490 units that I sell.

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.
