Question about Kodak EasyShare ZD8612 Digital Camera
The camera wont turn on even with new batteries.
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.

USE ONLY LITHIUM BATTERIES.
Alkaline batteries don't last long and often can't supply sufficient power on start-up... even when they are new!
Lithium batts cost more, but they last way longer than the equivalent $ value of alkaline batts.

What helped my camra to get working is to make sure you have the right battery.
the kodak easyshare takes only AA/lithium,AA/ni-mi,kaa2hr,AA/zr6 and AA/lr6 and akline too. It does not work for durecell batteries.Hope I helped!

Hi, here is whats going on, if your M763 is powering on for 2 secs and the lense opens up then go's right back in, there is a 90% chance you got sand in the unit from say the beach ?
here is a test , when you press the power buttion watch the lense you will notice that the bigger part rotates as it comes out, what you want to do is give it a little help Lightly rotate it abit more just at the point where it normaly stops and go's back in, the cam will prob stay on and work like normal.
now the hard part 2 things to try, a can of AIR from walmarts try to blow out and sand thats around the rings, i did this and have fixed about 20 of these's now, on the others you will need to take it apart and clean the gears and mech of the lense housing then put it all back together.
hope this helps

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.

Hope the advise is useful. please do not hesitate to let me know if you need any further assistance. Also, please be so kind to let me know if you found this helpful.

After searching and getting the run around, the only solution I've found is to BUY a new camera that IS NOT Kodak!!! I had never had a problem with Kodak until now...I WILL NOT buy this brand ever again!
