I've been experiencing the same problem and fixed it today. The Kodak Easyshare C613 has a defective battery door design and should be recalled. The problem is that the small copper connector in the hinged door doesn't make good contact between batteries.
First, check that both AA batteries are fresh. Then verify that the batteries are inserted correctly. Unfortunately, this camera has contradictory polarity (+ -) labeling. The hinged door has a positive (+) marking stamped in the metal on the side toward the lens while the plastic housing has a negative (-) marking on the side toward the lens. The metal marking is correct, ignore the markings on the plastic housing. The nub (+) side of the battery should be facing out of the battery compartment on the side toward the lens. The flat (-) side of the battery should be facing out of the battery compartment on the side toward the strap.
If fresh batteries are inserted correctly and you still have a problem, then use a small piece of paper to wedge the batteries in place. I folded a 1 inch square down to 1/4x 1/2 inch and placed it between the two batteries. Now my camera will turn on every time.

You can't change that battery. But there is no need to do so.
Just put 4 recently charged NiMH batteries in the camera and wait 24 hours. The batteries will charge the internal battery. This little battery, should last at lease 10 years.
And only if you put the camera away for a longer time (weeks or months) get out the main batteries.
Never use manganese (Zinc-Carbon) batteries in your camera. They don't give enough power and can start leaking.
If taking the battery out for at least 15 minutes, pressing the power button without the battery in the camera, and then after you put
the battery in the camera doesn't work to fix a problem you can reset the camera to factory settings like this:
Press the "Menu" button. Press the right arrow once to highlight the "Setup" menu.
Press the down arrow five times to select "Reset All." Press the "Set" button.
Press the right arrow button once to select "OK." Press "Set."
My mother-in-law said this exact thing to me last week about her camera. I can't understand why it's running the batteries down so quickly unless the power is being left on constantly. But I can tell you regular batteries don't last long in any high tech devices anymore.
I highly recommend Lithium batteries (I prefer Energizer, but any brand will do). They tend to last at least 6 months in my digital camera. They're more expensive, so I understand most people are hesitant about buying them, but considering the number of regular batteries you'd use up in that time period, you come out better in the long run (plus you don't have to haul around tons of replacements).
If your camera runs the Lithum battery down quickly, too, I might be inclined to say that something about the camera is defective and you should call the manufacturer.
How old is your camera already? Electronic gadgets powered by lithium ion batteries dies over time. if you had your camera and battery for over quite some time now say like a year or so, maybe the cells were drained dead and uncapable of holding electrical charge anymore. If that is the case you might consider replacing your camera battery with a fresh one.
I've had this problem too multiple times. Usually when it happens, the battery dies soon after, and once I replace the battery, the buzzing goes away. If you are having the same problem as me, try putting a fresh battery in :)
I had the same problem. My boyfriend suggested that it had to do with the camera holding a charge after the initial battery failure. He told me to take the batteries and memory card out for 10 minutes or so then try it again. I tried it and it worked like new. =)
