I was having problems transferring pictures from my DX7440 and could feel a little "glitch" with my cable/USB port in the camera, so thinking my cable was bad I ordered a new one from Kodak. After trying the new cable, I have realized it is the USB port inside the camera.
I contacted Kodak support and was told that I could send it in for repair or mail it back to Kodak and receive a coupon for 15% off a new camera purchased through Kodak.
I called repair and was told it would cost almost $140.00 to repair the USB port and I can probably buy a new camera for that. Is there any way I can repair/replace the USB port myself? TIA
I think you CAN--there's a lovely site with specific instructions,,,, Do It Yourself Camera Repair --- for fabulous step by step instructions WITH pictures & simple explanations that a novice can follow!!!
In short, all you need to do is find another USB port (even from a broken camera or other device) to replace yours. It seems that you'll need to solder it in -? - that's the step I'm trying to research right now--I'd like to just glue mine back in because I don't know how to solder--- but the tricky part is getting the camera apart, not touching the flash capacitator nor any of it's power-holding chips, and not damaging any of the other components.

Hi, Try camera in another USB port of laptop and also check it with another USB cable, if still problem not solved then plug camera in any other computer to make sure that it is problem of camera. If camera still wont work in other computer then its USB port got defective, please use memory card reader to transfer pictures in computer, take out memory card from camera, put it in memory card reader and plug it in USB port of computer. Thanks.
When you connect the camera to the Mac, you must have the camera powered ON. THe Mac will automatically recognize the camera and will open iTunes to download the pictures. IF this does not happen, you may have a bad cable or a bad USB port on the Macbook. Try a different cable, or try a different port. Good Luck.

make sure you plug the small plug on your usb cable into your camera...easy..
the big plug on your usb cable must be plugged into your usb port on your computer. It can only fit in one way and not upside down. It will also fit into your network port, but this not correct port. If your usb plug fits into the port the right way up, and upside down, then it is the wrong port. If your computer is old, then it may not have a usb port.
This can occur due to 2 reasons.. 1) Bad USB port: Try connecting to a different USB port and see if it works. If it does then its probably a problem with the USB cable. 2)Bad USB cable: You can resolve this by Changing the cable or by getting a USB card reader. Specify the details of your Memory card and i will help you find a card readr that suits your card..
I work as a Olympus DTS Agent. It sounds like your cable is bad or your Port on your camera is bad. One tip that I can recommend other then calling us at tech Support 1-888-553-4448 is be sure you are always plugging camera in through a usb port on the back of the computer.
Make sure your cable is OK.
1: Make sure you don't have any damaged pins on the plug on your camera and on your USB port on the computer
Try using a different cable to be sure that is not the problem.
If you can t ry a different camera on the same cable and make it work, your camera is at fault.
Try it on a different USB port, and possibly also on a different computer to make sure the port on your computer is not at fault.
Check both cable ends and the ports on the camera and computer are not dirty
