Make sure your batteries are good. This sometimes happens when the battery is low.

If the camera was dropped, it is possible that something was knocked out of place. That sounds very likely in your case. You should also make sure that the batteries are good. I have a Kodak camera that uses rechargeable AA cells, and they do not last long at all! Mine is a C-743, which has an actual viewfinder, though I suspect yours only has the LCD screen. Those idiots at Kodak think that cameras don't need those anymore, now that they have image stability programs. THEY ARE WRONG!

You may need a repair so expensive that you should consider trading it in for a newer model. These days it is hard to justify the cost of repairing a camera.

Back in the days of the Retina IIIC, Kodak sold some great cameras, and frankly I own two Kodaks now myself, a C-743 which is a pile of junk, and a Z-712 which I love. I believe that Kodak has some of the best image quality available on a digital camera, because they were one of the first camera companies to learn how to tame the contrasty CCD that actually takes the picture in these digital cameras....

Your fix could be as simple as cleaning the camera's battery contacts, or it could be something more serious and expensive. First try removing the batteries and cleaning the camera contacts with a small metal brush, steel wool, or fine sandpaper. If that doesn't fix the problem, check the Kodak Help Center by clicking on the link below. It uses a simple Q&A format to diagnose problems and propose solutions.

SOURCE: I have a Easy Share Easyshare C180. I turned it on

If the camera has recently been dropped you may have lens damage that's preventing it from powering up. If it hasn't been dropped your problem may be due to weak/worn out batteries or corrosion on the battery contacts inside the camera - which can prevent the full power of the batteries from flowing into the camera. Try this free fix before you do anything else: remove the batteries and wipe the camera contacts firmly with a dry cloth (heavy corrosion may require cleaning with a wire brush, steel wool, or sandpaper). Remove any residue that may have fallen into the battery compartment during cleaning, then clean the battery contacts, place the batteries back in the camera and give them a full charge (assuming that you're using rechargeable batteries). This cleaning clears the problem about 80% of the time. If it doesn't work for you, it may time to replace the batteries, or the camera may have a problem that requires professional repair.

SOURCE: My Kodak EasyShare M320 camera

sounds like the zoom motor is shot. to prevent further damage, the unit shuts off when the power goes to the motor but the motor doesn't move. if power kept going it would overheat and melt inside if was allowed to get hot enough. it could be the motor is stuck but either way i think you may need to take it in to a repair shop. if still under warranty, i would take it back.
hope this helps

Perhaps you just need a new battery. or the camera is defect.
Measure the voltage on the battery with a multi meter. It should give a little more that what is printed on the battery. so when it says 3,7 V on the battery you should measure 3,8 or 3,9. If not, even 3,7 outside the camera is not enough, then you need another battery.

Kodak Easyshare Z5010 takes black pictures only when in manual mode. I reset the settings but it still takes black pictures.

Check the settings that influence the exposure when your camera is in manual mode. There are three variables that you can adjust to change the exposure: ISO sensitivity, aperture (diaphragm) and shuttertime. When for instance the ISO is set to 100, aperture to F16 and shutterspeed to 1/1000 you will need a huge amount of light to get anything else than black pictures.
In a normal daylight situation you should get some results when using approximately the following settings: ISO100, F5.6 and 1/60 shutterspeed. Adjust these settings depending the light conditions and the results you get.

How do I unlock pictures?

Using the supplied USB, plug the camera in to your computer. Locate the DCIM folder once your computer recognizes the device. Locate those files that have been altered on the internal memory and erase them with your computer.

This is the best way to go about it.
