Question about Canon PowerShot A75 Digital Camera
As soon as the camera is turned on, the lens extends and then immediately retracts. There is no way to take a picture. This happens on all camera settings. The flash card is empty, but has been used a number of times with this camera. Replacing batteries didn't help. Changing flash cards didn't help.
Defective mechanism, a stucked mechanism is present. camcorder are smart it can detects error and shuts down itself for safety. earlier models dominoes the defect if the user is not quick enough to react when something goes wrong with the camera. You need professional service to fix it.

Kodak Easyshare cameras use Li ion batteries, as recommended by the manufacturer, which have higher voltages but not necessarily higher amp hours per battery pack.
When I first bought my 14.1 megapixel camera from Kodak, I tried various batteries, including Alkaline, Ni MH, and they didn't work very long before needing replacement or recharging.
This is because the voltage isn't enough on other batteries.
I do not understand why they make it this way, because it fooled me a lot. I thought that since it had a AA format that it would be alright to use AA batteries of any type in the camera. But, this is not so, in my experience.
Good luck getting your camera to work with new Li Ion Batteries.
Note: if the Li Ion batteries do not work, then there is something wrong internally with your camera.
Contact kodak.com to see if it is economically repairable.
