I have the same/similar problem. I could hear the camera attempting to retract 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.

I purchased a 4 GB SDHC card for my kodak easy share dx6440. The camera keeps rejecting it because 'it is not formatted'. I formated it and it still does not read it. is the DX6440 limited to SD 2GB? ...


The DX6440 uses SD cards. While SDHC cards will fit into the slot, they are electronically incompatible and won't work. You are limited to SD cards 2GB and smaller.

MY EASYSHARE DX6440 SHUTS DOWN BY ITS SELF OR DOES NOT EVEN COME ON


Make sure that you are using a fully charged battery and of course the recommended battery for your camera such as 2 AA lithium battery or Ni-mh battery. If you already done with all this thing it time to contact Kodak at 1 800 235 6325 ext 12 and send your camera for repair

Cant find previously review pic


The internal memory is very small and wouldn't hold very many pictures. Try using a separate card reader to download your pics to your computer.

Kodak Z812 shuts off automatically


It is a high-powered camera, also knows as a GREAT camera. Use CRV-3 lithium duracell batteries. I have the same camera and the same "problem", but when I use that battery it lasts forever.

Downloading from my camera through my port


A friend of mine was having the same problem and come to find out, she was going onto the Kodak website to transfer the pictures. I told her that she doesn't have to do that, just press the button from the dock (sometimes you have to hold it down for a few seconds) and a box opens up in the right hand corner on your computer screen, click transfer all. sometimes I have to play with it a few times for it to go. I have had the DX6440 for almost 5 years and have had good luck with it. As a matter of fact, I love it. I recently bought an Olympus E-Volt 500 and I like my little Kodak better, especially for close ups. I hope maybe this solution will help, I know it did help my friend. She was going crazy and that's all it was. Now my Olympus, I have to transfer from the site. Hope this helps!

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.

Stuck :(


My Kodak DX6440 did the same thing. After sending it to Kodak's third-party repair (as per Kodak), they called to say it was not fix-able. Kodak's response was "No parts available" and offered 10% off list price of a refurbished camera. ...Big sports ...Way to keep customer loyalty If you choose Kodak, the cameras are good but buy them knowing they are a disposable item.

Mode Dial Stuck On Camera


Hey i had the same problem. Saw your post and none others. Finnaly i gave up looking and just started tearing my camera apart. My camera is a Kodac 7630 so the diss assembly may be a little different but with the removal of a half dozen screws i got to the inside of the dial. It didnt feel sticky but i took it apart any way and cleaned all the touching serfaces of the dial with rubbing alchohol and my problem is solved. took about 30 min and there was really no danger of harming the camera. Its amazing the just a little stickyness caused the problem i was having because i could push with all my might and the dian didnt budge. i thought a part was broken in there. i think this is because you allso have to push down to move the dial so a little tickyness combined with your downward presure makes it impossible to turn.
good luck

Kodak DX6440 won't power up using batteries


There's a chance that the drop is irrelevant to your problem. You could try using a small eraser to clean the battery contacts down in the chamber (make sure to dump out any eraser particles) and try a new CRV-3 battery, which because of it's slightly longer body produces a little more pressure on the contacts. If that doesn't work to improve things then your cam might need a repair, your call there. Good luck
