I try to turn the camera on to either take a photo or review photos and the screen will light up green for a second and then go black as well as the small oval next to the view finder is green for a second and then blinks red. I can't get it to turn on and the batteries are brand new! HELP! Am I going to need a new camera?
Re: My camera won't turn on even with new batteries
Just figured out a solution. When turning on camera, press the review button (probably any'll work but this is the one I used) as the kodak screen appears. My camera still won't turn on normally but this is better then no camera at all! Good luck and hope this helps.

ALTERNATE WAY TO TRANSFER PHOTOS TO COMPUTER If your photos are stored on the memory card, then remove the memory card from the camera and insert it into an USB memory card reader. Connect this USB memory card reader and memory card into the USB port of your working computer. Your computer will see this as an USB Mass Storage Device or an external storage device; you can then open the folder on the memory card and copy the photos to your computer. Memory card reader is a handy device and is inexpensive. You can copy photos from other cameras and you can also download photos off your memory card to someone else's computer without the need of installing any programs.
Try NOT connecting your camera to your computer. The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.
Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use iPhoto or any other photo cataloging program.
Same problem as described above. Fresh batteries, turn it on, see the Kodak screen for a second, then it just turns off. I found that if you swith it to the favorites icon (the only one below the Off position) it stays on and I can review photos. But no taking new photos! Help!!!
I have the same camera... and it was doing the same thing AFTER i
changed my old batteries, because they were getting low. It was only
after i put in the NEW batteries that i had this problem... I tried
putting the old batteries back in and sure enough it worked again, so
it probably all just depends on the brand of the battery you use.
