Re: need help bad
Once it is coroded there is a chance to clean it but guarantees are not givin this works :
take a stick with two peaces of paper (also used to clean your ears , sorry don't know the english word) put a little (max 2 drops ) of pure alcohol on one side, silide open the battry component , go inside with the wet side first , do not press to hard and go up and down the battery component holder. once wet , take the other (dry side) to clean the battery component
repeat steps until it looks good, than leave it a dry place (normal room temperature) for 24 hrs / 48 hrs , check if the unit is dry after 24 hrs, if so insert batteries like GP / VARTA etc do NOT use cheap cells and i recommend buy a set of 2700 - 2950 Mah NIMH accu''s witch powercharger and hopefully you have a working camera with power

It could be, your battery is defect. All batteries do have a limited time of life. minimal 30 days, maximal perhaps even 30 years. It all depends what kind of battery it is. How many recharge cycles it had. How long it was used and not used. When using a battery in a regular way, keeps the quality good. Putting it away for a long time can damage it inside.
Then it could be only the contacts on the battery to in the battery chamber are dirty or oxidised. If they are not clean and shiny, please try to clean the contacts. Only use a dry cloth or cotton swabs. Don't use sharp tools, in or close by a camera.
Sometimes users even manage to put in a battery the wrong way around. That also will keep the charger from normal charging the battery.
Where did you get these new batteries?
I hope you know you can't use alkaline or NiMH rechargeable batteries.
Only Lithium batteries can be used, because they do have a higher voltage.
If you are sure you have the correct batteries, check if the contacts are clean and shiny. Clean contacts always with a dry cloth or cotton swabs. Never use anything sharp in or close to a camera.
the picture down here is just to show you can't use alkaline batteries. There are also rechargeable lithium batteries for your Kodak.
There are two possibilities. First, rechargeable batteries do not last forever. Take out your rechargeable batteries and replace them with non-rechargeable ones for test purposes. If your camera works ok, it may be that the camera's charger circuit has gone bad. Try charging your batteries on an external charger. If they charge, it is your camera's charger, if they do not hold a charge, it is probably time for new rechargeable batteries.
Try cleaning the battery contacts inside the battery compartment. Do this with a cotton swab "dampened" in rubbing alcohol. You may also want to clean the battery contacts and the charging station if so equipt. Thanks, Dana
you have the correct battery type installed, and that the batteries are
fresh/fully charged. If the problem persists, you may have corrosion
on the battery contacts inside that camera that is preventing full
battery power from flowing to the camera. Remove the batteries and
wipe the inside camera contacts firmly with a dry cloth (heavy
corrosion may require cleaning with a wire brush, steel wool, or sand
paper). Remove any residue that may have fallen into the battery
compartment during cleaning, then wipe both ends of the batteries and
reinstall them in the camera. This cleaning solves the problem about
90% of the time, and I hope it works for you.
You cant use regular batteries on these cameras. I have the same one., you need to buy rechargeable batteries or lithium batteries, both are stronger,but more costly than your regular alkaline batteries. This will defrinatly fix the problem..I am 100% positive,.They sell recharg- able batteries ar walmart for like $20.00 taht comes with 4 aa batteries and the pulg in charger.
It's the type of battery you are using. Use a rechargable battery or a long-life disposable rated for digital cameras. Regular (cheap) AA batteries don't have enough power to run this type of device - even if they are brand new. Save the cheap batteries for your wall clock.
