Having problems with your Kodak EasyShare DX7440 Digital Camera ?

Bad USB Port in Camera

\015 I was having problems transferring pictures from my DX7440 and could feel a little "glitch" with my cable/USB port in the camera, so thinking my cable was bad I ordered a new one from Kodak. After trying the new cable, I have realized it is the USB port inside the camera. \015\012\015\012I contacted Kodak support and was told that I could send it in for repair or mail it back to Kodak and receive a coupon for 15% off a new camera purchased through Kodak. \015\012\015\012I called repair and was told it would cost almost $140.00 to repair the USB port and I can probably buy a new camera for that. Is there any way I can repair/replace the USB port myself? TIA\015

I think you CAN--there's a lovely site with specific instructions,,,, Do It Yourself Camera Repair --- for fabulous step by step instructions WITH pictures & simple explanations that a novice can follow!!!

In short, all you need to do is find another USB port (even from a broken camera or other device) to replace yours. It seems that you'll need to solder it in -? - that's the step I'm trying to research right now--I'd like to just glue mine back in because I don't know how to solder--- but the tricky part is getting the camera apart, not touching the flash capacitator nor any of it's power-holding chips, and not damaging any of the other components.

Good luck!

My dell 531s desk top doesn't seem to "see" my vivitar 3915 camera. it issues the tones when the camera is plugged into the usb port, just doesn't add it to the list of usb devices it sees. my work system(s), (3) that run windows xp have no problem seeing the camera as a usb mass storage device. i have plugged the camera into all available usb ports on the 531s and have the same results. the 531s doesn't have a problem with any "jump", "thumb" type usb drives that i may plug in. any ideas gang?

I have a Canon HF M30 we bought in Dec 2010 and my husband attempted to plug in the cable into the USB port of the camera and discovered it would not 'connect' to the computer. In other words it wasn't recognizing it (we've used it many times before w/no issue) so he unplugged from camera and looked inside USB port on Camera and there was a plastic piece that was broken and just hanging in there.
