Okay, first of all, KODAK batteries are a waste of money. And second of all, make sure that you aren't using rechargeable batteries. And if you checked those, bring those batteries back to the store bub, because those are some lousy 5% charged from the factory.

The humming is probably your image stabilizer, and may be normal. Try turning it off in your camera's menus to see if that improves battery life. If it does, you may need to consider higher power lithium batteries if you wish to continue use of the image stabilization feature.
If your Kodak camera is not turning on, the answer to your problem is probably the batteries. But what I am wondering is what you said, QUOTE "I CLEANED THE POSTS" END QUOTE, if you used a WET soft towel you have water damage. To reverse the effects of water damage, remove batteries and take a blow dryer and blow it down and around the camera for a good 10 mins, first 5 low setting, 2nd 5 high setting. Let it sit in RICE for a good 5 days (typical business week) if not rice in a clothes drawer for a good 5 days also. Thanks!
Make sure you are using rechargable batteries. Normal batteries are not
strong enough. Try using either rechargable Lithium Ion batteries, or
rechargable Nickel Metal Hydride (NiMH) batteries. These are much
stronger and should give you a good battery life. Let me know if this helps :)
Here are the steps: 1. Make sure you will install a new or fully charged battery/batteries into your camera. 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. Please make sure that you are installing a fresh/ fully charged battery c. Without the memory card, turn your camera on. 3. Please test with the a different battery If you do not have access to another battery Try these steps instead: Please take the battery out of the camera. b. Insert the charger into the unit from the main socket and turn the camera on. If the camera works you will need to replace the battery. If you camera doesn?t switch on you will need to order a No power repair or a new cable.

the camera takes 1.5v to operate it
anything less the camera will shut down
recharge batteries are only 1.4v so at full
recharge it won't last long
The best batteries are litheum that have the right
volts and capacity to keep the camera going.
try turning or the camera stablizer setting...
might save your battery power.
FIRST CHARGE YOUR BATTERY OVERNIGHT AND THEN REMOVE YOUR BATTERY FOR ABOUT 10 MINS PUT BATTERY BACK YOU HAVE TO ADJUST THE DATE AND TIME AFTER DATE EVERYTHING WILL BE OK BUT IF YOU ARE USING 9 OR HIGHER MEGAPIXEL YOUR BATTERY WILL BE DRAIN IN THREE TO FOUR HOURS.
What type of rechargables are you using?
Ni-Cad are reputed to have a 'memory' so that if recharged whilst not fully run down this is accumulated so that only the new bit of charge is 'active'.
So-put the batteries in a torch and leave it on until the batteries are completely flat, then recharge.
And/or get a couple of sets of Ni-Mah rechargeable and a suitable charger and start afresh.
