Question about Kodak EasyShare DX7440 Digital Camera

1 Answer

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

Does not focus after "far" objects when zoomed to 50mm or more ...


  1. If your images suddenly start looking blurry or distorted, try holding your camera up to the light. If your lens looks dirty, foggy or greasy, try applying lens solution with a lint-free cloth . Move the cloth in a circular motion until the lens dries. Do not apply lens-cleaning solution directly to the lens.
  2. If your images are still blurry, check your shooting mode. If you are shooting closeups, make sure you are using the "closeup" mode. Try to get within 2 feet of your subject before you shoot the picture. images can look more blurry when you are a long way from your subject
hope this helps you please do me rate on this issue

The videos that I do are blurry


Hello Friend,
if the videos that you are taking are blurry, this can be related to a wrong configuration or screen issue or lens issue. here is how to diagnose the issue:
1. first you can start by doind a reset factory of your camcorder, this can be done from the camera menu.
2. if after reset the problem persist, you will need to check if it's related to the screen or no. you can check that by transferring the videos to your computer and play them from there. if they are blurry even on your computer. that means it's not related to the screen.
3. Try to take videos in different places with different conditions (dark place, in public place during the day with natural light, indoor with light ...) if they are all blurry in all places, that means it's related to the lens.
4. In this case, you can try to clean the lens with a Microfiber tissue and see if this will help. otherwise the lens is broken and needs a repair and in this case i hope that the camera is still under warranty.
Good Luck!

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?

You must either get the lens polished or replace it. The cost will be about the same. Sorry....accordianman

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.
