Question about Kodak EasyShare C653 Digital Camera
Assuming the battery is fresh out of the charger: a "well used" battery that can no longer accept a full charge (at the end of its useful life) can have the results you describe (it's not unlike like a flashlight with dead batteries - when the light goes out, turn off the flashlight - wait a few minutes and turn it on again - the light shines [though not very brightly] and quickly goes out again). After many charge / discharge cycles, the battery no longer has the ability to hold a charge. This is a gradual process that happens over the life of the battery. An indication of this is that you'll notice that you can take many fewer shots now when compared to when the battery was new.
There is a possibility that a new, fully charged battery will allow the camera to work again. However, if the existing battery is not very old or or has relatively few charge / discharge cycles, it is probably an issue with the camera. A local camera store may be able to help you determine if it is a battery or camera issue - otherwise, a quick google search reveals that a new battery for this camera is under $15.
I hope this helps - and good luck!
