My camera would not power up, c663, and there was something loose inside. So i took the case apart with the philips screws, and found that the noise was a small screw that appears to hold the lower left hand side of the screen down.
It still does not power up, so i am thinking that the screw, hit something such as a contact somewhere, and caused a short in the board- that goes beyone my technical abilities at the moment.

First, make sure that the "new" batteries have a full charge. If you don't have a meter to check them with, try using them to power something else. Also, if using rechargeable batteries, make sure that they are the correct type for the camera. NiCd batteries will not work well in a camera that calls for Ni-MH batteries.
If the batteries are OK, your problem may be due to corrosion on the battery connections inside the camera. Remove the batteries and wipe the camera contacts with a clean soft cloth (heavy corrosion may require cleaning with a fine wire brush, steel wool, or fine sandpaper). Remove any specks that may have fallen into the battery compartment during cleaning, then clean and reinstall the batteries.
The above clears about 90% of power-up problems, and I hope it works for you. If not, your camera may have a more serious problem that requires repair by a camera shop or the manufacturer.
This problem is frequently the result of corroded battery contacts
inside the camera. Remove the batteries and wipe the inside camera
contacts with a soft cloth (heavy corrosion may require cleaning with a
fine wire brush, steel wool, or fine sandpaper). Make sure there's no
cleaning residue left inside the camera, then clean the battery
contacts and reinstall the batteries. If this doesn't solve the
problem you may have something more serious wrong with camera and I
recommend checking the Kodak troubleshooting guide at:
Remove the batteries and clean the battery contacts inside the camera
with a soft cloth (a heavy buildup on the contacts may require cleaning
with a fine wire brush, steel wool, or sandpaper). Remove any residue
that the cleaning leaves in the camera, and then reinstall the
batteries. This clears most power-on problems, but if yours persists,
check the Kodak troubleshooting guide at:
some times if the batteries get wet it will short the system and it won't turn back on... if you dropped it something may have shifted inside blocking the messaging systems inside the camera. i would take it to a local camera shop.
