Re: My kodak digital camera won't turn on.
First, remove the SD card (if there is one) and see if it works. If it does, then the SD card is damaged. If it still doesnt work, read on..
Try regular alkaline batteries. If they work, it could indicate that your rechargeable batteries are dead and need to be replaced, or there is a problem with the charger.
If the regular batteries dont work either, try cleaning the contacts in the battery compartment of your camera, or gently scratching the contacts with a jeweller's screwdriver. If it still does not work, there is an issue with the camera's power board and it will require servicing.
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

Yes, assuming you're using rechargeable batteries. If you're using rechargeable AA batteries, they can be recharged using any standard AA charger. If you're using the Kodak Rechargeable Battery Pack, it can be recharged using any of several Kodak chargers.
Solution: As digital cameras become more advanced and include more features, the power needed to keep them functioning has also increased. That means that typical alkaline batteries likely won’t do more than power your camera for a few shots before running out of juice. Sometimes, your digital camera may not power on at all if the inserted alkaline batteries aren’t fully charged or powerful enough. Rather than carry along dozens of alkaline batteries for a single photo shoot, you can save money by purchasing rechargeable NiMH (nickel-metal hydride) batteries. Rechargeable batteries can be purchased with a charger that you plug into a wall outlet, and they fully charge in one to five hours depending on the charger and the type of batteries you’re using.
If you’re already using rechargeable batteries but are experiencing short battery life with your digital camera, it’s likely time to replace your rechargeable batteries with new ones. Depending on the number of charging cycles you perform (how many times you discharge and recharge your batteries), rechargeable batteries typically last for two to three years before they no longer hold a full charge. You may also ensure that you’re charging your rechargeable batteries directly before use. As batteries sit unused for extended periods of time, they automatically lose some of their charge.
There are many ways you can conserve battery life while using your digital camera, too. For starters, if your camera has a viewfinder in addition to an LCD, use the viewfinder to frame your shots and turn the LCD off because LCDs draw a lot of power. If you prefer to use the LCD, you can still conserve battery life if you refrain from looking at each picture on the screen after you take it.
It could be due to the fact that some rechargeable batteries are slightly different shapes and the nobbly bit on the + end doesn't reach far enough in, as it is the case with Maplin AA batteries. In my case I placed a small drop of solder with a soldering iron on the + nipple and now they reach into any device.
If the lens doesn't retract on most digital camera the camera also will not turn ON. It is connection or wiring between camera power and camera lens.
What Kodak Rep will ask you to do are: 1. Remove the battery and the memory card of the camera 2. Check if your using a recommended battery and if its new or fully charge. batteries for Z1275 are Ni-MH rechargeable; CRV3 Lithium; 2AA Lithium 3. Insert the batteries back in the camera in correctly 4. Set the camera in Auto mode (its the camera icon on the dialing mode of the camera) 5. Try to turn it ON
If still will not turn ON and the lens will not retract 6. If your using a rechargeable battery Kodak Rep will ask you to charge the battery until its fully charge.
If your using a disposable battery they will ask you to try to use a new battery out from the box. After all those steps still the camera failed to work, it will be send for repair. The number of the Kodak support line is 1 800 235 6325 (23KODAK)
1. Remove the batteries from the camera and then clean the battery contacts 2. Remove the memory card 3. Verify the batteries your using Recomended batteries are CRV3 lithium (non-rechargeable) Ni-MH rechargeable digital camera batteries 2 AA lithium 4. Make sure to use a brand new batteries or fully charge batteries 5. inserted the battery correctly 6. Place the camera in Auto Mode [it's the green camera on the top of the camera beside the flash.] 7. Turn on the camera
if your are using the ordinary AA rechargeable battery it will not charge., Camera dock will charge only on a 2 Pack AA battery like KAA2HR batteries or the 2 AA battery that attached together (Ni-MH rechargeable battery pack )
Digital cameras are very Voltage Sensitive. Using Nicad or NiMh
batteries will not only , "Not" solve the problems above but will actually aggravate the above problems for one reason.
NiCad or NiMh batteries only produce 1.2 volts fully charged and will
only give you 2.4 volts when used in pairs with this camera. This falls
below the cameras desired 2.8 - 3.0 voltage requirement and will only
result in about 30-40 pictures at most.
This camera requires a
constant 2.8 - 3.2 volts to run properly. Kodak won't tell you this
!!The camera was designed with Oxy Akaline batteries in mind.New
alkalines will produce 3.2 to 3.4 volts in pairs but only for a short
period of time.The issue with the Oxy Alkaline batteries is that they
simply will not last very long in this camera due to its power
But there is a really great solution to the
problem . You can purchase a CRV3 rechargeable Li-ion battery that fits
right into this camera. You will get a realistic 180-250 photos per
charge.The Li-Ion battery maintains a constant 3.0 volts for a very
long period of time and will allow the camera to function the way
Kodak originally intended it to and can be recharged. You will find
rechargable CRV3 battery kits on ebay or other online battery stores at
a very reasonable cost.
You can also use a Lithium Non rechargeable CRV3 battery that will give approx 250-300 photos per battery but you may find non rechargeable Lithium batteries cost prohibitive.
I use the rechargeable Li-ION Battery exclusively in this camera and it functions perfectly since I switched. I have a pair of CRV3 Li-Ion batteries so I always have a fully charge CRV3 ready to go.
For reference I was only able to get about 30 pictures with the high capacity 2800 Mah Rechargeable NiMH Batteries I used prior to using the LI-ION Battery. I get on average about 175 pictures per full charge from the LI-ION Battery.
