Try to clean first the 3 metal contacts of your battery I Believed you are usign the recommended battery that came from the box (KLIC-7001). Now you may try to charged your battery Using 5V AC adaptor and also you can Turn it on using the Adaptor
YOUR CAMERA HAS A WARRANTY AND OVERSTOCK.COM ALSO HAS A WARANTEE. IT IS OBIVIOUS THAT YOUR CAMERA IS DEFECTIVE AND SHOULD BE SENT BACK FOR REPLACEMENT. YOU MUST CALL OR EMAIL OVERSTOCK.COM,OR CHECK IN THE BOX THE CAMERA CAME IN AND SEE IF THERE IS A RETURN LABEL WITH A RMA AUTHORIZATION ONIT! THIS IS IMPORTANT! IF NOT CALL OVERSTOCK.COM AND ASK FOR AN RMA AUTHORIZATION NUMBER TO RETURN THE CAMERA AS DEFECTIVE! AND DO THIS IMMEDIATELY!! THE SOONER THE BETTER. EXPLAIN TO THEM THE CAMERA WILL NOT CHARGE AND WILL NOT TAKE PICTURES PERIOD AND YOU WANT TO RETURN IT FOR A REPLACEMENT? OR REFUND( IF YOU WANT A DIFFERENT CAMERA NOW ).I WORK AS AN EXPERT IN DIGITAL CAMERAS AND THERE ARE MANY PROBLEMS WITH THIS CAMERA.

I WOULDN'T BOTHER WITH SENDING IT IN FOR REPAIR IT WOULD COST MORE THAT THE CAMERA IS WORTH. JUST TRY TO GET YOUR MONEY BACK OR A REPLACEMENT! GOOD LUCK! IF YOU NEED MORE HELP REPLY TO: ARCLIGHT`1217
I had the same problem 2 months ago, I went to use my camera and the len wouldin't retract or open, it was stuck that way. I contacted Best Buy and Kodak both and all I was advised to get it fixed, $49.00 just to send it off the Best Buy, my camera was on 150.00 so by the time they spent on labor I'd have to pay way more than it is worth probely.. I was also given tech support what to do still nothing worked at all. I was resigned to have to buy another one after weeks of trying to fix it. Well one day I figured if its already messed up, try one more time what more damage could be done. I turned it off and on again and carefuly moved the lens around myself to see if I could unlog the shutter. Low and behold it worked! I never had to send it in and saved me alot of money. I would suggest doing the same see if it works.
Incidently, my camera worked fine after that for all of 2 weeks, I went to charge it and when I tried to use it............another issue my screen is white with a black pattern and lines on the screen and hasin't worked since. I've never dropped it, put it near water and keep it in it's case when I'm not using it. It's unrelated to the other issue but, guess I'm not suppose to have this camera.
Color lines in the LCD display is caused by certain type of light connections. If you get all the time when you turn on the camera then the LCD panel is bad, would need to be replaced. Black lines in printed printed pictures from your printer or the Kodak dock station printer? If that's the case, then the transfer rollers are dirty and would need to checked or replaced. Also drivers could do this also. Report the problem to Kodak Live Chat Online Tech Rep or called on the LAN line (phone).
Hey Smookee37, What it sounds like to me without actually looking at the camera is that the LCD screen is cracked, but of course it also could be the camera sensor. It is unlikely that it is the lens, but I would have it looked at by an authorized service technician. The manufacturers warranty usually doesn't replace the camera it repairs it, and damage to the camera is usually not covered. Sincerely, Allan Go Ahead. Use Us.
