Having problem opening my DX6490. My wife fell and got sand in it and it won't work now. Looks like I got all the screws out -even under the rubber flaps. Still won't come apart. Side with memory card is loosest. Side with rubber flaps tight especially by the flash.

Re: need to take apart DX6490
Try prying it apart with a thick credit card or (i use an old sim card for things like this) some other plastic tool that you can pry with without messing up the case. Make sure and pop off anything that can be removed and see if there are screws that you have missed.

Hello, Looks like you have two options: either try taking it apart yourself,which could be done, just be careful not to drop any screws. Once apart, you're going to carefully blow out the camera of sand. This will take a lot of patience. The other option is to send it out to get repaired.
I just finished taking my wifes S3101 apart because of the same problem. I found the inlet and outlet hoses clear, so the problem had to be with the heater. I took the water side of the heater apart and found the outlet nipple clogged with dirt and sand. I live in VA Beach and my wife uses tap water. There was a lot of sand and dirt in the heater, so I cleaned all of that out, used a very small drill bit to clear the outlet nipple and then reassembled. It works fine now, and you will have to use distilled water if you want the unit to work for any period of time. The casing screws were a real pain to remove, so take your time.
I just took my wifes S3101 apart and found both inlet and outlet hoses clear, but nothing coming out of the boiler. I took the water side of the heater apart and found the outlet nipple clogged with dirt and sand. I'm from VA Beach and my wife uses tap water. After cleaning out the water side of the heater I had to drill out the outlet nipple, it was that plugged. Anyway, after that, I reassembled and it works fine. By the way, removing the casing screws was a lot of fun (not).
The green screw is a grounding screw and the blender will work fine with out it, but it should be grounded with the power cord ground wire secured to the ground screw. Check the other wiring, the ground screw is not why it doesn't work now. (unless there is another screw involved. The power comes in and goes to the speed control switch)
You should keep your hand grenades somewhere else! Remove the top (either screws in the back or control housing or push in each front corner with a thin putty knife to release the latches), and remove the screws on the insides of both front corners, then lift up to release the front panel. That should give you access to the blower housing and duct work. Retrieve whatever fell in and vacuum out all lint in the area while it is open. Be sure to wash the lint filter in hot water and detergent to get rid of fabric softener deposits which plug the filter screen. Check the drum bearings (either sliding pads or rollers) for wear. Replace if found to be in bad condition. Also, check the condition of the drum belt and replace it if it is cracked or breaking apart. You will need to access a lower rear panel to remove the belt from the motor and idler wheel. Hope this helps!
Know no solution, just, that is, what my camera did when it fell, the zoom lence was zoomed out, now it won't retract. Must have a crack also like yours. I took the back off and tried to see if any cables were loose, none were so I know it's in the front area of the camera. The zoom probably. My LCD screen doesn't come on either. But the camera it turns on and lights up the selection icon that I have it on. Did you get yours fixed? Sorry to post on the solution when not a solution. But, I didn't see a reply button, to type a regular reply.I did call the Kodak company and they said to buy another camera would be cheaper than getting mine sent to them to be fixed.
dissmantle the back case (watch for 1 hidden screw under rubber covers), lift plate on back of lcd screen, remove screw on back of dial, clean where it sits on both sides (most probably from a liquid spill...tea, coffee...) , apply some lube with a cottonbud ore a bit of tisue and rebuild. hope this helps stewart
Hello, I work on these DX6940 cameras and can tell you that you are between a rock and a hard place when it comes to the small joystick.This is a major point of failure on these cameras and you will not find a good replacement unit, Chinese made low quality and no replacements available. You need two cameras to make one good one !!! GOOD LUCK Russell
Oh how fun, yep when I dismantled one of my old dead kodak digital cams - same thing, I'd removed all the screws but still struggled to open it up.
Yes, the body is also "snapped" together with a couple of fittings. And after much futzing & prying, yah me. Holds up 2 plastic halves & one former camera guts. Yea was a good camera, it had lived a long & happy life, even after the super cheapo battery compartment door fell off, um, after being dropped maybe.
