ROCHESTER, N.Y. (AP) - Eastman Kodak Co. says its survival over the next year hinges on its ability to sell its potentially lucrative digital-imaging patents or raise extra funds by selling debt.

Its cautionary statement in a securities filing came as the embattled photography pioneer posted a wider $222 million loss for the third quarter. It says its cash reserves fell almost 10 percent in the quarter.

Revenue tumbled 17 percent in the July-September period, with surging sales of inkjet printers more than offset by slumping digital camera and film revenue.

Kodak trimmed its full-year outlook, warning that revenue could be 1.5 percent to 4 percent lower than expected and losses might drop to the low end of its previous forecast.

Its shares fell 11 cents, or 9.2 percent, to $1.09 in midday trading.
