Kodak DX6490 Hi, I have a Kodak DX6490. The camera hasn?t been used for a while and upon charging the battery and switching the camera on to "auto", the green camera symbol starts flashing but both the screen and viewfinder remained blank. The camera gives a soft click, but the lens doesn't move and the camera doesn't respond to any of the buttons. After a couple of seconds, the screen starts to glow very faintly. This glow is very obvious in a darkened room, but invisible in daylight. There

My camera just starting making clicking noises, then it would not shut properly, then back, white screen. I tried using new batteries, different batteries, cleaning the battery area but no luck. It has no juice at all now. At first I thought the computer inside was tripped. Maybe the salt water affected the batteries? What is the address to mail for repair? Do I have to pay ahead to look at? Is there a minimum charge. Monica [email protected] 619 593 8035
