If the light indicating the charging status is off, remove the batteries from the camera and make sure that you are using the Kodak Ni-MH Rechargeable Battery Pack KAA2HR. THis is the only battery that will charge on the dock. If you are using the correct battery and it still does work, better to get a rapid charger instead.

Although you did not mention what Dock you are using, I assume it is the Camera Dock 6000. Is the Dock connected with the power supply? Because only connected to the PC with a USB cable will not be enough. Also the LiIon battery in the camera, should be charged at least once. If the battery is completely empty the dock will have trouble to. The dock can be used to charge your camera. Then the lights should indicate the state of the battery. And the Dock can be used to transfer pictures to the PC. But before that will work correct you have to install the software that came with the camera. (Easy Share software)
My Z760 does the same thing. When that happens I run the battery completely down by taking pictures until it shuts down. Then when I put it on the dock it charges properly. Don't leave your camera on the dock all the time and don't try to always keep the battery fully charged--instead it will develop memory and think it needs to be fully charged to run and will give you a low battery signal earlier than it should. Wait until you actually get a low battery signal before charging and it should help, but mine will still give me the red light sometimes. Then I run the battery out like I said before. I hope this information helps. :-)
The problem might be that the battery has developed memory and won't charge further. My first battery used to do that, but then I read that you shouldn't leave the camera on the dock all the time nor keep the battery fully charged all the time because of the problem of developing memory. You might try running the battery completely down by taking pictures until it shuts down. Sometimes when my battery is low the dock won't charge (but goes straight to the red light), but when I run it completely down when I put it on the dock it charges properly. I hope this information helps. :-)
Not sure if this is related, but our's won't start-up either, and it seems to indicate that the batteries are weak/dead prematurely. There must be some sort of power level controller that could be the root problem.
