Question about Kodak EasyShare DX7440 Digital Camera
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.
