Having problems with your Kodak EasyShare DX6490 Digital Camera ?

Can a faulty joystick be repaired/replaced?

\015 Joystick controller does not work, can a part be purchased? Fortunately it is only an issue when the battery is taken out and charged. The date cannot be set nor the options changed but the camera works great (DX6490) and the newer cameras dont have the same options for the same price.\015
