The original battery pack is nothing but 2 AA batteries held together with a plastic holder, you can use regular AA rechargeable batteries and save some money. I had a similar camera with the original battery pack held together with some plastic holder, I simply substituted that battery pack with 2 regular rechargeable common batteries and camera works the same.
I think that Kodak recommends Li Ion batteries which have a higher voltage on them.
I got some generic Li ion battery packs off of Amazon.com, with better specs. than Kodak, and they work fine for my Easyshare z1485 IS camera.
It cost me like $80 to get the charger and two battery packs that are Li Ion, but it's worth it.
My battery packs are rated at 2000 mAh 3.7 Volts each. It's the voltage that counts. You see, if you would split that in half, the voltage for each AA battery is 1.85V which is much higher than the 1.5V that regular Alkaline or Ni MH batteries are rated at.
I tried Alkalines, and Ni MH to no avail. But, the Li Ion batteries, did the trick for me.
My kodak camera requires taking out the battery pack and charging outside of the camera. My batteries have a generic charger I got off of amazon that has a red and green light on it that tells you whent he batteries are fully charged.
If the charger is blown, that might explain why they are not charging.
Are you trying to use AA batteries instead of the recommended battery pack? I would use the recommended battery packs available through amazon.com.
Yes, 2 AA batteries. Just insert them correctly. They don't last as long as the CRV3 lithium battery pack though

I bought the CRV3 battery and charger at Radio Shack and
Bought it 3 years ago, still using the same battery after taking 1,000's of
pics. I also keep a pair of regular AA's as a back up when I'm away from home
Yes you can., You can need to purchase a wall charger for you r NI-Mh battery the model number of charger is kodak K620 for or if you want a travel charger the model number is kodak K640., Or if your battery is special battery of Ni-MH (KAA2HR) make sure that you will purchased kodak K4500 charger., KAA2HR battery will not charge using a regular wall charger., Check first your battery before purchasing the charger
I wish I shared you easy solution feeling.
Try a few things
Take battery out and clean the contacts at the base of the chamber with a pencil eraser.
Ditto on the chamber door.
If nothing happens try charging the battery in another charger or another battery.
Kodak support is the next stop
