I used my new camera for a week or so and then had to charge the battery. It charged fine, and I put in back in the camera. It shows the battery is full....however, it also says, "Turn the power off and on again." Well, I've done that ten times and that's all it keeps saying - I can't get past that. Help! What's going on???

Rosa, I think the only thing you did was get out the batteries and tried to charge them and then jut put them back in the camera.
Only a few things could have gone wrong.
One or more cells could have died, during charging. It can happen, special with batteries that have a uneven use. Like once or twice a year the camera comes out the box and then the batteries are charged. Even when you don't use he camera, make it a habit to charge the batteries every few months.
Then it could be your batteries are still in good shape and fully charged, but you put in one or more calls the wrong way around.
Please check carefully if all the cells are inserted correct.
If nothing works, and you can't check the voltage of your batteries, try another set of batteries.
Sorry to hear about your camera. Hope you already fixed it. If not, could you please precise what lens are you using? What are the precise description of the last "black out"? Please try to be as precise as possible(Circumstances/Was it inside or outside/Light condition/moisture/Any peripheral devices connected etc.)
I used mine for 1 month & took 300+ pictures, loaded them to my PC. Took 10 pictures over a weeks time & while reviewing them, the camera powered off. I replaced the batteries, tried the "charged" recharchable set & the thing wont power up.WTF!!! .....the **** part is, we're broke & have a baby due any day.....we won't get pictures of our newborn.......signed - upset with Kodak....
I would let them charge til you get an indication that they are done. TV remotes require very little power to operate, while digital cameras need a lot, so that's why the batteries would work in the remotes though not fully charged.
The battery packs in these units dont have a very long "shelf life" meaning when you charge the battery you need to use it within a few days or it will loose charge. Have you tried a fresh charged battery? They are very power hungry devices and the more advanced they get the more power they need. How old is this unit? how many charges have you put on the pack? it may be time for a second pack. An emergency backup pack good power is key nowdays.
