Question about Kodak Cameras
Never used Kodak z650 when i power on the Kodak logo after it directly turn off by itself with perfect battery....
If you really left the batteries alone for 6 years without regularly charging them, they won't work anymore. I still have two KLIC 500 batteries from Kodak, which I bought in 2005, Both are in very good condition, because the both get a charge every 3 months, even in periods I did not use my camera.
You could try. charging the batteries several times, but don't have to high expectations.

The problem is that the lens has become stuck in the barrel. There are some DIY solutions you could try, but the probability is that you will have to get it fixed by a professional.
Use these at own risk as it may further damage the camera.
Firstly , try connecting your ac adapter or usb cable.
Try holding the shutter button while switching on the camera.
Look at the lens , and if some of the lens 'circles' is misaligned or not concentric then try wiggling it (while holding camera lens down).
Try gently pushing or pulling the lens when it extends but this is risky as it may cause the lens barrel to slip out of its guidance system.
Another way to do this is to place the camera lens down on a hard surface and then power it up. Be sure to use a soft cloth or something similar as to not scratch your lens or casing. Let the lens push the camera up and down a few times and sometimes the little resistance provided by the camera is enough to get things going again.
Try hitting your camera near the lens on the body with the soft tissue on the palm of your hand.
Other than that , I would take the camera to a repair center for a evaluation to see if it would cost more to repair than to replace the camera.
If it is still under warranty I would suggest you take it in before trying any of these steps and remove any off-brand batteries or accessories as some stores are really fussy about warranty repairs on camera's with non-brand accessories.

Same problem, have an M883 although this seems to be an issue with older models as well. Something defective I am assuming. I have taken proper care of my camera (storing it in the case, ensuring no liquid touches it, etc.) I plan to call them in the morning.

Fixing your problem could be as simple as cleaning the battery contacts
in the camera, or the solution could be a lot more complex and
expensive. Here's a link to the Kodak Help Center - it provides a
simple Q&A format to diagnose the problem and propose a solution.

Are you using the batteries that came with the camera? If you are, some people have had trouble with them, read this review:
If you're using a new set of batteries, make sure they're fully charged (measure them with a voltmeter or other device). If they look good, make sure the contacts inside the camera are clean (you can clean them with a pencil eraser, or q-tip and at least 90% alcohol). If you're using rechargeable batteries, they just don't last as long as alkalines, and I haven't had much luck at all with them, so I don't recommend them. I've seen other reviews where people had the same experience you're having. Take the camera back, if you can, and exchange it, you're not going to be happy with it. I would recommend getting a camera with a Li-ion rechargeable battery- they don't take as many pics as alkalines, but they come close and they're free (they come with the camera).

There is a dead short somewhere within the battery holder, replaceing the battery will not fix it It will require intervention by a technician to uncover and fis the short circuit or bare wire. Check out the minimum repair cost and compare it to replacing with a newer model. It may well be throw away.
