LCD Screen shows Kodak Logo when turned on then goes blank.
When the camera is turned on the screen shows the Kodak logo for a second then goes blank. (No icons no nothing and I know the shutter is open.)Any/all the buttons have no effect. The camera does function (Takes pictures and the flash works. I can also tell that the buttons work.)and I know the batteries are good. I have updated the firmware. The update menu did display but as soon as the update was complete the screen went blank. Is there a way for the owner to reset the camera to the factory default settings?

Re: LCD Screen shows Kodak Logo when turned on then goes...
You've probably corrupted the firmware download. If the camera is still recognized by your PC then I'd try downloading the firmware again and try to load it again into the camera. I don't wish to upset you but corrupting the firmware can in some instances make the camera unusable.
Your manual should tell you if there's a reset and how to do it.
Don't forget the camera's firmware can also be upgraded by loading the update onto the memory card and running it from there.

It is not necessary something wrong with the camera itself. Sometimes the simptom is caused by the memory card. Reading from it works (so you can see older pictures) but every new picture is written wrong, so the camera shows only black.
Using the self-timer Use the self-timer when you want to be included in a picture, or to ensure a steady Shutter button press. Place the camera on a tripod or flat surface. 1 In any picture-taking mode, press the Info button to turn on the shortcut icons. 2 Press to highlight the self-timer icon. Press to choose a setting: 10 seconds- A picture is taken after a 10-second delay (so you have time to get into the scene). 2 seconds- A picture is taken after a 2-second delay (for a steady, shutter release on a tripod). 2 shot- The first picture is taken after a 10-second delay. A second picture is taken 8 seconds later. 3 Compose the scene. Press the Shutter button halfway, then completely down. The camera takes the picture/pictures after the delay. Use the same procedure to take a 2- or 10-second self-timer video, but press the Shutter button completely down.
This took me a bit, in fact I needed to got to one of my Fujifilm cameras to see if I could duplicate what I was thinking the problem could be. So here goes. There is a small button on the back body just off the lower right side of the LCD screen it has Disp/Back written on it. What I'm saying is that this button has been pushed to give a blank screen which will affect both the viewfinder and the LCD. To get to that point I had the camera in Manual mode ISO at 100 and the lens cap on. The aperture was set for F9 and the shutter at 1/60th. My camera has a "shake" icon so in Auto and program there was the shake icon on the LCD screen it also showed in the "A" mode as well. Now that said my version of your camera may be a few models ahead, your camera may not have the camera shake feature or icon. In short I think you have pressed the "Disp/Back" button and changed the view mode.
Just covering the bases...
Make sure the lens cap is removed
Turn the ON/OFF switch to Favorite mode
Press EVF/LCD does it toggle
Look to see if the battery level ICON shows better then half
Battery combination sometimes will show a strong icon level
It may be strong in the other modes which draws less power then the picture taking mode.
My guess would be New Battery replacement.
Some tests were done that may be of value to your solution
Do the icons show up on the screen or is it totally blank?
Can you view previous pictures?
If the icons show on the screen then have a look into the lens to see if the shutter is closed over the inner lens. you may have to adjust the zoom to bring the inner lens and shutter mechanism up close to the outer lens to get a better look.
If the shutter is covering the inner lens then it is stuck and will need to be freed by opening the camera up.
If the screen is just black then it just may be possible that the ribbon for the screen has partially slipped out of it's socket on the main board.
If it comes out all the way then the camera should not even power up.
