Question about Kodak EasyShare DX6440 Digital Camera
When I turn on my Kodak EasyShare DX6440, The green light and "Reading memory card" splash screen appear, then the camera shuts off. When I change batteries, the splash screen appears and then it tells me that the date and time have been reset. I set the date and time, press continue, and then the green light goes out and the camera shuts off. The lens never came out. Multiple sets of different batteries have been tried, and now the splash screen appears for a shorter time before shutting dow. Is it time for a new camera? No difference when taking memory card out and starting up. We cleaned the battery terminals in the camera and batteries with an eraser, no change.
I have the same/similar problem. I could hear the camera attempting to extend the lens. Camera shut down after timeout.
Disassembled camera & found two teeth missing from plastic gear in gearbox attached to lens motor. Don't know yet if part(s) are available.
Camera had light use. Patheticly short life & that Kodak didn't use stronger nylon gears. Bought a barely use Kodak P880 recently, & the autofocus died shortly after. Web search showed others had same failure. I'll never buy another Kodak camera.

Could be time for a new camera But check out Kodak Support first. It has been said that cameras in a certain price band[any make/model] are to be considered as disposable -like toasters and kettles I guess.
