    I'm not sending this camera in for repair so ...

    Anyone been inside these things? I've got a Kodak dx4330
    digital camera that just lost it's flash.

    Anyone have schematics?

    Bad flash.... is it usually the tube or the trigger? Can
    you read the partnumber of the components, or does Kodak
    house number?

    I can get a broken dx4330 on ebay for about $15. Is it worth it
    for parts?. And so on .....

    Suggestions? Thanks

    Hi...

    Photography is a life long hobby for me, and though
    I've never used a Kodak I have done many many others.

    A very, very good bet that it's the tube itself that's
    failed. A worthwhile gamble, considering that you'll
    also get a few other goodies... dock, batteries, usb
    cable, lens cap, lcd display, etc. Perhaps even another card.

    If and when you do take it apart, remember the flash
    capacitor. That thing will really get your attention.
    If you're lucky enough to survive it, you sure won't
    soon forget it.

    Good luck, and take care.

    The capacitor won't kill you, but the shock will make you jump and you
    could very easily injure yourself on surrounding hard objects. I know that
    for certain.

    Greetings HFS,

    Sorry to hear about your misfortune. I own a DX4330 and love it. Still use
    it for parties and such. How do you know the flash is broken. Is the flash
    module physically damaged? If not, check to be sure you have not set the
    camera to no flash. Try a few shots after changing the flash options. When
    you lost the module what were the circumstances?

    If you do decide to repair the camera your self, especially work with the
    flash, please note that it can send a significant charge so be very careful.
    It could hurt you.

    FYI and good luck. Let me know what you find.
