Whoah, the same thing happened to my camera.
I'm going to get a new battery. I hope it works...other wise it is just a dead camera and you need to look into getting another one *gulp* how long have you had it??? Mine I bought in mid year 2006. And this is the 2nd time its gone dead. The 1st time, I just had to take the battery out and put it back in and it turned on immediately. But this 2nd time, I tried the same technique and NADA.
If it doesn't work then I'll end up buying a HP photosmart, Sony or Kodak (recommended).

Can't download pics from sd to camera

Goto any radio shack and get a external memory card reader this will allow you to get your pictures if the camera or cable is defective.

Put brand new batteries in camera took three pic then they die

Hi, you will only solve this by buying the official KODAK battery (KLIC-8000) - NZD52.00 retail here in New Zealand. Even the generic CR3V rechargeable batteries dont work, so dont waste your $$ on them.
Even now, with the 'official' battery, when taking flash photos or zooming a lot, I find that it is only taking around 150 - 200 shots, when Kodak boast over 400.
But I must say the capabilities of the camera (esp the quality video) outstrip any annoyance battery wise.
Hope this helps, regards Wayne

Olympus fe-115 shutting off

check to see if the battery is loose. i had the same problem where my camera turns on and off, i went to radio shack and found out that the battery wasnt "pushed" in all the way. if you open the battery slot and the battery pops out then thats the problem. just push it in until it clicks.

hopefully this will solve your problem.

My camera function is not working

It could be that the tape heads are dirty. You should try cleaning them with a 8mm tape cleaner. Radio Shack carries them.
