Having problems with your Kodak EasyShare DX7440 Digital Camera ?

The lens does not extend on my easy share dx7440 and the power won't stay on.


Answers :

This condition is usually caused by either power problems or lens problems.

Make sure that you have fresh/fully charged batteries in the camera. You can check the batteries by placing them in another piece of equipment to see if they work. Batteries more than a year old are frequently worn out -- they will not take or hold a charge no matter how long they're left in the charger. Another simple test is to simply try your camera with other batteries.

If possible, check the output of the battery charger. A voltmeter is best for this.

Check the battery and camera contacts for corrosion. Even a small buildup can prevent power from flowing to the camera. Light corrosion can be cleaned by rubbing the contacts with a clean, dry cloth. Heavier buildups may require cleaning with a fine wire brush, steel wool, or sandpaper.

Lenses frequently have zooming problems due to dust/dirt that has settled into the zoom mechanism. Once of the worst culprits is a soft fabric camera case or bag leaving lint on the camera. Try blowing compressed air from a compressor or "canned air" at the base of the lens to clean it out.

If you have recently dropped your camera you may have damaged the zoom mechanism for the lens. Even the smallest fall can damage this fragile system, and repair will require a professional.
This is apparently a common problem with this model Kodak. The most common do it yourself fix for this issue it to manually hold the lens out when turning this product on. Do not let the lens retract even an inch and the camera should stay on and continue to work properly. If this does not work repeat the process a couple of times in a row to see if you are able to achieve results.
