Battery type is Li-ion rechargeable also it is bluetooth. i have tried charging it, and the battery charger gets warm. it does not blink any color, and does not turn on at all.Manual doesn't specify where or how much it would cost to be repaired if it needs repairing.

Only the Li-Ion batteries designed to work with the radio can be charged inside the radio. If you have Li-Ion rechargeable batteries such as those you can buy along side the
Alkalines in a store, the answer is no. This type would need to be charged in the style of charger made for recharging this brand/type of battery
There are basically 3 types of chemicals currently being used for cell phone and laptop batteries. Ni-cad, Ni-mh and Li-ion. There is a fourth makineg its way in Li-ion polymer. A couple things are consistent for all types of batteries no matter what chemical is inside. You must initially give the battery a 12-14 hour charge on the home charger. (Don't use a cigarette adapter for the first charge. This conditions the battery and don't take it off the charger that first time even if the charging indicator says it's full after 3 hours. Also the manufacturer's also state to run it thru 3 charge cycles. What that mean's is that you fully charge and fully drain 3 times. 1 full charge + 1 full drain = 1 charge cycle. Here's where the way you charge the battery starts to differ.
Ni-cad: Mostly only on older devices, has a "memory" effect, should be drained before a full charge is put on it, should be removed after overnight charge or can be overcharged and burnt out.
Ni-mh: Still used for some devices, has slight memory effect but not enough to have to fully drain before the recharge, should not be consistently left on charger after full charge that can eventually burn out battery and shorten usage time.
Li-ion and Li-ion polymer: Used on a lot of newer devices, has no "memory" effect, should be recharged as often as possible, actually likes to be charged and draining it regularly can cause the usage time to be shortened, can NEVER be overcharged so whenever you're near a charger put it on there. Besides those benefits a li-ion battery is lighter and smaller but the chemical can hold more charge than Ni-cad and Ni-mh.
So the one reply to your question said to error on the side of draining the li-ion batteries. This is incorrect information. You want to charge the battery before it gets below a 20% charge. Also batteries will not go bad from accidentally doing the incorrect charging procedure here and there but normally follow the correct procedure. One last note try to use the home charger more often than the cigarette lighter charger for best long term results. Cigarette lighter chargers do not give a full charge (about 95%) which in the long run can damage any type of battery listed.
Li-Ion battery and NiMh battery have completely different charging requirements! Li-Ion battery has much stricter charging requirement and the regulator is normally design to trickle charge at 0.1 Current rating @ 4.2V and then completely shut down. WARNING: if you use a Ni-Mh charger on a Li-Ion battery, then it will erupt and even explode and catch fire! Bottom line is that the rescued Li-ion regulator is not designed for your Ni-Mh pack and you will never get a full charge with it and you will need a completely different regulator board: you are better off putting in a suitably sized Li-Ion battery with inbuilt regulator but with higher current rating if possible. Hope it helps! Let me know how you go.
Li-Ion batteries cannot be charged efficiently with power supplies or NiCad chargers, they need a pulse charger dedicated to Li-Ion batteries. Also, there is a danger in charging with other sources as Li-Ion batts. will catch fire or explode if not charged properly. Please get a charger that is made for those batteries
Digital cameras are very Voltage Sensitive. Using Nicad or NiMh
batteries will not only , "Not" solve the problems above but will actually aggravate the above problems for one reason.
NiCad or NiMh batteries only produce 1.2 volts fully charged and will
only give you 2.4 volts when used in pairs with this camera. This falls
below the cameras desired 2.8 - 3.0 voltage requirement and will only
result in about 30-40 pictures at most.
This camera requires a
constant 2.8 - 3.2 volts to run properly. Kodak won't tell you this
!!The camera was designed with Oxy Akaline batteries in mind.New
alkalines will produce 3.2 to 3.4 volts in pairs but only for a short
period of time.The issue with the Oxy Alkaline batteries is that they
simply will not last very long in this camera due to its power
But there is a really great solution to the
problem . You can purchase a CRV3 rechargeable Li-ion battery that fits
right into this camera. You will get a realistic 180-250 photos per
charge.The Li-Ion battery maintains a constant 3.0 volts for a very
long period of time and will allow the camera to function the way
Kodak originally intended it to and can be recharged. You will find
rechargable CRV3 battery kits on ebay or other online battery stores at
a very reasonable cost.
You can also use a Lithium Non rechargeable CRV3 battery that will give approx 250-300 photos per battery but you may find non rechargeable Lithium batteries cost prohibitive.
I use the rechargeable Li-ION Battery exclusively in this camera and it functions perfectly since I switched. I have a pair of CRV3 Li-Ion batteries so I always have a fully charge CRV3 ready to go.
For reference I was only able to get about 30 pictures with the high capacity 2800 Mah Rechargeable NiMH Batteries I used prior to using the LI-ION Battery. I get on average about 175 pictures per full charge from the LI-ION Battery.
