Your camera most likely has a lens error and the buzzing is the lens motor straining against a stuck lens, this is such a common fault that I hope you don't mind me pasting my stock generic answer below. No point in reinventing the wheel!

Stuck lenses are probably the most common reason that compact digital cameras get thrown away, but there's a fair chance of recovering use of your camera again

The fault is commonly caused by dirt or grit blocking the mechanism, or due to it having suffered a recent fall. Another common cause is that the camera was in a pocket or bag and the power button accidentally activated and tried to open the lens against resistance. The mechanism may have simply become dislodged or there may be parts which have broken.

If your camera is still under warranty and has definitely not been subject to misuse then contact the Kodak service department in your country to find out about a free repair. If the warranty has expired though a professional repair will far exceed the cost of replacing your camera. You will therefore have nothing to lose by trying to fix this yourself.

Please click here and you will be taken to an excellent article provided by the Camera Repair website. For the most part, you'll be guided on how to physically manipulate your camera to try and clear the fault. Although the article mentions Canon a few times, the advice applies equally to all cameras with lens errors and is not model-specific.

If the link doesn't work then cut and paste the following address into your browser:-

Make sure you have an SD card. If your card is 4GB or larger then it's actually an SDHC card and won't work in your camera.

I get a buzzing sound


Hello Rrosario35, This problem is related to the lens assembly. The camera will check if these work properly when it's being powered on. If something goes rong here it will turn off or display you some error messages. This problem occures when some of the lens mechanisms get out of place and jamms or damages other components. As the lens assembly is a very delicate mechanism I would suggest you to go back to the service center that fixed it the first time and ask them to check it. Don't try to power the camera on anymore because the lens assembly could be damaged further or beyound repair if the servo-motors are trying to alling the lens something jamms them and not allowing them to move properly. This will force the servo-motors and they could damage other components or themselves. It could be fixed, but don't force the camera to work anymore for the time being. Please post back if more informations are required.
