Question about Kodak KB 10 35mm Point and Shoot Camera
You have a really cheap and basic camera (with no disrespect to it), so unless you simply have a flat camera battery you realistically have just three choices:-
1. If the camera is still under manufacturer's warranty, then contact Kodak for an exchange. They won't even attempt a repair but will just confirm it's not working and usually send you another or possibly try to fob you off with a credit voucher towards the cost of a new replacement.
2. Replace it with another camera.
3. Take yours apart, try to work out what's wrong and reassemble it. You're on your own with this as there will not be any repair manuals nor will there be any specific spare parts available, but if it's just a failed solder joint or a failed generic cheap electric motor/microswitch then repair costs will be low. It may be difficult to dismantle your model though as it was never designed to be repaired so to save costs the casing may be assembled with glue and one-way clips only.
Note that it's not all as gloomy as it sounds: if there is no warranty, then even a failed attempt at a DIY repair will give you valuable experience and there is absolutely no need to pay for a replacement camera. There are millions of perfectly good (and often superior to yours) 35mm compact cameras lying forgotten and unused, probably just in need of a new battery and almost all are now practically worthless. This means that they are regularly offered on your local FreeCycle/Freegle groups and if there are none at the moment then a request for one usually is highly successful (but FreeCycle/Freegle rules usually insist that your first posting is to offer something).
Good luck, and please take a brief moment to rate my reply.
