Question about Kodak EasyShare Z712 Digital Camera
I have the same problem... cleaning the contacts does not work. I'm using NiMH 2450 mAmp batteries, brand new, and I get a low battery indicator immediately. Camera shuts off unexpectedly. A short search online indicates that HUNDREDS of people are having the same problem. Kodak help not very helpful. I'm ready to buy something else!

Here are the steps:
1. Make sure you will install a new or fully charged battery/batteries into your camera. Please use lithium batteries Ni-Mh or rechargeable Batteries (2000 M.Amp or higher).
2. Clean the battery contacts.
a. Remove the battery/batteries and the memory card from your camera, then wipe the battery contacts with a soft, clean cloth.
b. Reinstall the battery/batteries into your camera
3. Turn on your camera without the memory card.

This happened to me and my lens was still out- I think it happens especially when the batteries die during the last time you used it.
Anyhow- I tried about 14 different batteries, Im not sure why- as they were all brand new. I was just thinking.. "It can't be my camera- its gotta be these crappy batteries!"... No, not the case.
I would turn it on, and the screen would flash, pretending it was going to power on- and then shut off just as quickly after hearing the lens try to pop out/in.
SUPER frustrating- I have a fancy NEW Nikon, and I still prefer the photos taken with my kodak (silly, yes, but seriously Im in love with this all purpose camera!).
I read a few different forums- tried the above. And it didn't work. Sorry Pania Lee from KODAK, give us some useful tips or give us a free camera upgrade- Thanks.
I ended up trying to gently turn and pull and push the lens out during the .2 seconds I had the teensiest bit of power- after about a minute of trying to cajole the lens out or in, it WORKED!
So, give this a try if you had the same issue as I did.
What a relief.
I hope you find this helpful.
