Question about Kodak Cameras
Your problem could be due to one or more of the causes below.
Remove the batteries and check them and the camera contacts for corrosion. Even a small buildup can prevent current from flowing to the camera. If present, wipe battery ends and camera contacts with a clean, dry cloth, then try charging/operation again. Heavy buildups, if present, will require cleaning with a fine wire brush, steel wool, or sandpaper.
If possible, also check the batteries with a voltmeter or test them in other equipment to ensure that they are in fact taking and holding a charge. Batteries more than a year old may need to be replaced. Also check the charger output if possible, and try other batteries in the camera.
If you have recently dropped the camera, you may have caused damage to the lens zoom mechanism. This will cause the camera to shut down in order to prevent more serious damage. This problem requires professional repair.
