Question about Cameras
I have the same camera (Dec 08) and also experiance the same problem. The cause is the poor position of the two small terminals for the batteries (under the battery cover). One of the terminals may not actually touch the negative (-ve) flat end of the battery. After some research, (??) I found that not all batteries are made the same and that duracel batteries have a larger metal area on the negative (-ve) terminal and therefore seem to work better. The problem is compounded by the fact that the batteries can also move around slightly, which means that sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't I put some tissue paper just to hold the batteries in place... The real answer is to return the camera to Kodak, but until they redesign the batter cover you may end up with the same problem. This works for me, hope it works for you !

SOURCE: wont turn on
1. Make sure you will install a new or fully charged battery/batteries into your camera. Please use lithium batteries Ni-Mh or rechargeable Batteries (2000 M.Amp or higher).
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
3. Turn on your camera without the memory card.

Your problem is likely due to corrosion on the battery contacts inside the camera which can prevent the full power of the batteries from flowing into the camera. Try this free fix before you do anything else: remove the batteries and wipe the camera contacts firmly with a dry cloth (heavy corrosion may require cleaning with a wire brush, steel wool, or sandpaper). Remove any residue that may have fallen into the battery compartment during cleaning, then wipe both ends of the batteries and place them back in the camera. This cleaning clears the problem about 90% of the time. If it doesn't work for you, your camera may have a problem that requires professional repair.
