Having problems with your Kodak EasyShare DX6490 Digital Camera ?

How to realign kodak dx6490

\015 Along with being the yearbook advisor at my middle school (and teacher)...I was coaching my volleyball team and trying to take photos when (doh!) I dropped the camera (stupid, stupid, stupid!) I took it into a local camera repair place and the guy said that the camera was fine except for the fact that the lenses need to be realigned (labor is at least $135). While I paid $400 for this camera a few years ago, it would be ridiculous to pay that much for a camera that is, for all intensive purposes, out of date. BUT, I do love the camera and my students use it to take pics for the yearbook! Since I've basically got nothing to lose, anyone have any basic directions on how I could try to realign the lenses myself? If I screw it up, I won't be any worse off than I am now! Any advice would be greatly appreciated!\015

Answers :

Hello Teacher, Since we have nothing to lose but a DX6490 try to gently push the lens housing in with the palm of your hand until it is fully seated, then gently pull the lens assembly out to it's extended position,now gently push it back in. Install battery and turn it on to see what happens. If this works, great, if it does not work list the camera on E-Bay for parts and I may buy it !!!
Best Regards, Russell

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

What is the sd card compacity limit for the DX6490. I have a 8 gigbite sd card and it just keeps asking me to format it.
