Question about Kodak EasyShare DX6490 Digital Camera
Camera will power up and when you use any options it will shut down.
Camera was in charger over night.
Hello, Sounds like you may have a battery problem. The DX6490 battery loses it's capacity over time, If the battery is a couple years old they are known to fail. May not be any problem with camera, try a new battery and let it charge completely before installing it.
Best Regards, Russell

Remove the batteries and clean the battery contacts inside the camera
with a soft cloth (a heavy buildup on the contacts may require cleaning
with a fine wire brush, steel wool, or sandpaper). Remove any residue
that the cleaning leaves in the camera, and then reinstall the
batteries. This clears most power-on problems, but if yours persists,
check the Kodak troubleshooting guide at:

I believed that you are using the battery came from the box the KLIC-7004 which is very good. Now since the battery indicates its charge, first thing you need to do is to removed the battery and Memory card, Now wipe the 3 metal contacts of your battery then reinsert only the battery in your camera then Turn It On. If the camera shuts off try to used 5V AC adaptor to Turn On the camera, If this failed to turn On using the AC adaptor It means the camera needs of service call Kodak Tech support toll free 1 800 421 6699 ext 12

sounds like the zoom motor is shot. to prevent further damage, the unit shuts off when the power goes to the motor but the motor doesn't move. if power kept going it would overheat and melt inside if was allowed to get hot enough. it could be the motor is stuck but either way i think you may need to take it in to a repair shop. if still under warranty, i would take it back.
hope this helps
