Your camera may have been in wet conditions. So "short cut" may have been occurerd. Please firstly put your camera in a hot and dry room. Wait at least one day. After that process. Try again to use with brand new batteries. It will work I think.
20 to 30 shots on "fresh" batteries! Do you use the flash on all shots. That really drains them. I would try to set the camera to "factory default settings" in case you changed something that is causing a drain. I hope you just bought some bad batteries.
The best thing I EVER bought for my Olympus was the Re-chargeable
Lithium Ion batteries. The worst thing I did was buy an off brand. That
was a waste. I ended up getting the more expensive brand Olympus
recommended and all was GREAT again!! 1,000's of pictures later and
they still work great.
Yes it sounds like you should return it. If you just bought it I would not take the chance, exchange it for another one and see if you run into the same issue. Then go from there. If you need further assistance let me know. Thank you, Lee
I bought this model several months ago and it was working great up until Christmas time. For some reason it just stopped working. I couldn't get it to turn on OR sometimes it would turn on after several attempts. I kept changing the batteries and sometimes that would work, but it was more or less random successes. I found this link on FixYa :
http://wwwuk.kodak.com/global/en/service/batteries/batteryDigCamChart.jhtml?camera=C813 I was using generic batteries (Philips) which I bought in bulk from a discount tech store and these batteries were working in the camera since I bought it. The batteries were new; just generic. By coincidence I ended up buying KODAK branded alkaline batteries from the same store. I replaced the older generic ones with the KODAK batteries and the camera came back to life! I'll leave it off for a day and see if it turns on tomorrow.
