is the light that's coming on green or red?
if it's red, there's a charging error - contact kodak, they may provide a 5v ac adapter to resolve your charging issue
if it's green, was it blinking or solid? is the battery drained?
if the battery still has a little charge on it, please connect it to the computer then turn it on, check if there's power light
check if the screen is black - that means it's making a connection and the charging is the only issue - computer not detecting it, maybe resolved by kodak's software support
if the camera screen is active - that means there's definitely something wrong with the camera
arrange repairs with kodak, include the battery and usb cable

SOURCE: kodak z812 is problem
I had the same issue with my same brand/model camera for months. I used it maybe twice and then it decided not to turn on, no matter what I did. I finally got in touch with Kodak (the first time they told me to try different batteries, which of course did not help). I spoke with someone who figured out that I had a faulty memory card. When I removed my memory card, I was able to turn my camera on. I had to reset my date, but once I did that (still keeping the memory card out) I was able to take pictures just fine. Give that a try and see if it helps!
Another word of advice, if turns out to be your memory card, you'll need to purchase a new one. Kodak, of course, provides troubleshooting for their brand memory cards as well. Just an FYI.
Hope this helps!

SOURCE: Kodak Z700 not firing up
Same problem as described above. Fresh batteries, turn it on, see the Kodak screen for a second, then it just turns off. I found that if you swith it to the favorites icon (the only one below the Off position) it stays on and I can review photos. But no taking new photos! Help!!!

Yes, you can use the USB cable to charge the battery. But you need to insert the cable into the computer USB port, no the USB HUB, and the computer is on, not in sleep mode.

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,
