Mode Dial Stuck On Camera


\015 Hello, The Mode Dial on my camera is stuck. Somehow it got turned past the Video Icon, and it won't move backwards to the "Off" position. I can still take pics & even download them to my PC, but I can not get the Mode Dial to move. I have to take my batteries out to get it to go off. What would make it stick in that position? I thought the dial moved clockwise & counter clockwise. It will not move at all. Could it possibly need oiled, etc,? Help please!!\015\012\015\012Thanks muchly\015

I too owned a DX6440 Easyshare, but it was the mode dial on a later model, Easyshare Z730, that dialed too far past the video mode and got stuck. No support help available from Kodak other to send it in for repair. Easyshare DX6440 and Z730 are great cameras, but after owning 5+ years, I could probably buy a new camera for the cost of repair and shipping. I removed all exterior screws, very carefully pried out the side rubber panel, the bottom connection separated fairly easy. The top connection required more finesse to separate. I loosened the screws to separate the mode dial's two pieces just enough to allow to reset the dial around the housings plastic stops. Be careful with the small metal strip portion of the dial mechanism that makes the "click" when setting your desired photo mode, it slips out easily with the camera housing open and the little board removed from over the dial. I'm charging the battery now before completely reassmbling to see if can test power up first.
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.

The mode dial doesn't seem to work. The camera is stuck on the high speed sequential setting. When we select iauto, it takes one picture and then freezes. When we select the camera option on the mode dial, it takes 13-15 pictures in succession and then freezes. The pictures are taken without the button being pressed. We need to power off to change modes. The camera did work for a little while.

My flash seems to be stuck in the "suppressed" mode. Also the Manual on page 64 refers to a "turn" of the "command dial" to the "flash mode setting". Since that item is not described anywhere else and the only turnable dial is the "mode" dial, I assume that it means to press the flash mode arrow. When I do that nothing happens. The flash modes do not display as described in the manual. I can't figure out how to get the flash to function properly again. I have made all my attempts with fre
