With new batterys camera flashes both red and green lights when trying to power up than stops after 3 seconds.
before things were working fine transfering pictures to my laptop but then while viewing pics I did'nt disconnect camera, thats when it started too beep and lights flash.
I suspect camera has froze up its programing.

Re: camera will not power on
Sir this is my solution try to refresh it by detaching your battery and attach it back. charge it for the time that the battery come in full charge and turn it on. just be sure that your new battery was compatible or not high voltage to accept it on your camera. if not, it must be the hardware inside the camera was broken or damage. hope that helps!

usually fast flashing charge is faulty battery its trying to get volts in to the battery. you see the battery has a charging board on the battery not in the camera the camera sends the volts to the battery and the battery tells the camera its voltage, and when at the right volts stops charging. but these batteries can only be charged to around 10000hrs depending on the type of battery. you see when you get a new battery you need to charge it before use, now this can be 6hrs to 12hrs for fist time use if you interrupted the charge or have a power cut while it charges it can damage the charging chip in the battery. if this does the flashing light on other batteries then the signal is not being read by the camera and the camera can be faulty on the charging circuit, usually (sometimes) removing the battery for a few hours can fix this but it will rest the camera. hope this helps you.
I'd suggest using a wall charger as they're able to provide more power to charge then a computers USB port. Often with camera's the USB port doesn't supply enough power so the camera doesn't charge at all.
KODAK Easyhare digital camera light status 1. Blinking green light(or blinking blue or white light in some models) - Means camera is performing a power up procedure.Note: Wait a few moments to see if the camera displays a solid green (or blue or white) light or a blinking red light. 2.Solid green light(or blinking blue or white light in some models) - Means Camera has sufficient power 3. Blinking red light - Means camera batteries are weak or need replacement;If battery are new and still red light camera needed to be repaired

Find a new supply of "Duracell Ultra with M3 Technology" batteries and give them a try. The flashing red light is usually an indication that the batteries you have in the unit are not producing sufficient power to run the camera. Rechargable batteries are should have a rating of 2500mAh or above in order to provide enough power to maintain the draw from the camera.
I've had my camera for a long time so I don't think I'll get the option of taking it back and exchanging it but I keep having the same charging problem. I just tried the flash button trick... the green light is on, steady, and holding. I'm not going to touch it any more and I hope that if I leave it this way for a bit it'll charge up.
My advice is to NOT LET THE BATTERY RUN DOWN past half charge, otherwise it won't have enough power to stay on long enough to register the fact that its plugged in to the computer.
SOLUTION: Fot the past two years, fully charged NiMH and new alkaline (generic and fresh Name Brand batteries) in my CX7530 always gave a red light and immediate power off -- symptoms of low batteries. Today I tried it again with the same problem. This time, I folded up a small piece of stiff paper to depress the small Lithium battery module detect switch in the battery compartment, and put my NiMH batteries back in -- it WORKED for the first time in two years! After removing the paper and reinserting the batteries, it still works. I suspect this somehow recalibrates the low battery detect circuit. I hope it helps you as well.
