Question about Kodak EasyShare DX7440 Digital Camera

DX7440 messed up lens blurry distorted

We have had our DX7440 for a few years now, and it has been great. Also, we got it for free from a relative, so I do not mind screwing around with the innards to fix this.

What was once a great picture form the lens has now become blurry, squashed, and distorted. According to the Kodak website, it is a lens issue, and needs a repair, which would run us about $150 - or the cost of a new, better camera.

Is there any chance I could crack the camera open and repair this myself? Is it a broken part, or just something out of alignment?

You can only find out by opening the camera
Then you will not be able to get it repaired
Chances are it will not be repairable any way because of age.
So go for the New one.
Then open the old one - you get lucky you may just figure how to fix it - but dont hold your breath
Then if you are lucky you will have two cameras
Now beat that

Images are blurry, fuzzy


Good day,

I have heard a lot of complaints about people taking Blurry Photos.

There are a few possibilities for it and a few easy fixes.

The first possibility I would identify is a dirty lens. To fix this simply take a clean microfiber cloth and gently clean the lens until there are no smudges visible.

The other possibility I would identify is that the pictures are out of focus.
This problem can be caused by a dirty lens or because the object or person was not focused on. To ensure focus on your photos, line up your shot and wait for the camera to focus by pressing the shutter button half way down. When focused press the shutter button in all the way and hold the camera still until the photo appears on the screen. By doing this you will eliminate any motion that might mess up your shot.

Please let me know if these tips work for you!

My daughter has a Coolpix S210 and when we try to take a picture it is blurry/out of focus. I did a factory reset of settings but it didn't help. Any ideas if this can be fixed or what could have caused...


Take a few pictures with the camera on a tripod or a firm surface. Are they still blurry? Are you pressing the shutter button halfway to allow the camera to lock in the focus before pressing the rest of the way? Have someone watch while you take a picture...do you move when pressing the shutter?

Kodak DX7440 Lens Cover does not open or close properly


It is a common, but in most cases intermittent problem with many cameras regardless of brand/model. I also own Kodak DX7440 since late 2004, and I had this problem twice, in 2007 and 2008. First suggestion: fully recharge the battery, it helped me the first time. Second: play with the lens cover, that is try to open/close it with the camera on/off. With me, in 5 min of these attempts, it suddenly fixed itself and stays this way for one month now. Another suggestion: dont use a toothpick, since it can scratch the lens. Use a q-tip, and to avoid cotton threads sticking to lens, wet the q-tip and let it dry.

Blury pictures


it could be a few things like dust on your lens when you took an auto picture and it could have blown off from movement make sure your lens is clean, check your lens settings on the side if it is on the flower its for close up pictures and if its on the trees its for further away pictures so make sure its on the correct setting also pc cams only have digital zoom so if you zoom in it may appear to be blurry because it only zooms in on the picture which is made up of pixels as opposed to an optical lens which zooms in on the actual object so its not as blurry also check your menu settings mabey you messed something up, also remember to keep the camera still when taking pictures they are not that advanced. and if non of that works just use manual.
