Are you in the menu setting?, or inbetween the setting's on the "dial", did you replace the batterys with Dura'sor a solid name?, it sounds like you have a external memory card attached to the camera, did you try taking it out,and see if the problem still happens,also if you do have one and took it out and attached it to a "outside source", it could be infected with a computer virus!, or it was "exposed to a magnetic source,also, try these and let me know, also check your menu settings on pictures settings, to see if you have it on single,or rapid set, that also could be the problem, god bless and let me know if I can be of any more Help

Kodak EASYSHARE Z1285 tells me my memory card needs formatted (any card I insert) but then is unable to format them and goes back to saying it needs formatted (3 different cards)

Memory card support for Z1285: SD/MMC up to 2 Gigabyte and SDHC up to 8 Gigabyte.

There is no firmware available online for this model.

The last option could be that the lever on the SD card is making the SD card data protected. Please turn the lever to the correct side.

I hope it works out

Screen goes black when taking picture and picture is not taken.

I know this might be a silly question, but did you take the lens cap off?
If all seems OK I'm afraid the camera needs a repair.
