?? Drain as in leaking. If the camera makes the batteries leak you should contact KODAK immediately and they will make a HSE case for you. Contact KODAK: http://www.kodak.com/eknec/PageQuerier.jhtml?pq-path=14563&pq-locale=en_US&_requestid=3490 If you mean the camera is drinking batteries try these steps: 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. (If it works then it?s your memory card that is faulty)
It could be due to the fact that some rechargeable batteries are slightly different shapes and the nobbly bit on the + end doesn't reach far enough in, as it is the case with Maplin AA batteries. In my case I placed a small drop of solder with a soldering iron on the + nipple and now they reach into any device.
The problem you describe is frequently the result of dirty/corroded
battery contacts in the camera. Try removing the batteries and
cleaning the inside contacts with a fine wire brush, steel wool, or
fine sandpaper. Remove any residue left from the cleaning, then
replace the batteries. Hopefully all will be well.
If the cleaning doesn't work you might want to check the Kodak troubleshooting guide at:
This is probably THE most common failure among digital cameras. There's a halfway chance of fixing it yourself, described here: http://camerarepair.blogspot.com/2007/12/fixing-lens-error-on-digital-camera.html
maybe it needs new batteries..my camera does this but when it needs batteries...i'm thinking of getting a new digital camera because i have to buy batteries for it every week no matter if they're lithium or rechargable...so don't know if this is the problem but hope i could help some..
This is a lens fault.
KODAK recommends a repair in this case it might be a better option to chose a trade up where KODAK offeres to exchange your existing model with a brand new model for a favorable price.
