Battery low indicator comes on even after new
I also have this problem. I put freshly recharged batteries in the DX3900 and the camera starts to turn on and reads the memory card (the green LED blinks) and then I notice that the in CAPTURE mode the lens does not extend out of the body housing. The top display shows a flashing low battery warning and after approx. 15 seconds, the camera shuts off with no function.
I have determined that the camera appears to have changed its low battery sense level as I have verified that the batteries are indeed fully charged by using a volt meter. If I have the camera in a warm environment, and do not have the LCD display on (removes a major power drain) the camera can be made to work for a short while. If I select the LCD to turn on, the extra drain seems to cause the camera's battery monitor to think that the battery voltage is too low and the camera shut down. I have yet to resolve this issue.
My pictures won't go on the computer
I also had this problem intermittently. Sometimes it worked, sometimes it didn't. Sometime rebooting cured it, sometimes it didn't.
In the end I got frustrated and bought a USB-connected CF-card reader (they're fairly cheap these days) and now if it doesn't work, I just pop the card out (using "eject" button on the bottom) and put it in the card reader into the USB port. It works every time, and is also much faster than the direct-from-camera transfer.
Kodak DX3900 camera can't get power from battery
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:
Battery chargers-can I use it for all my batteries
I would say not.
I have a charger that can do Nmhi and Alkaline but you need to throw a switch. You can't put NiCad in it at all. I know the voltage in the NiCads is lower and the other chargers will cause them to leak or even explode.
Cant unlock photos
if you are seen this zip zac in your camera is because this photos was taken out of your KODAK album n you may find them either in your pictures, window medial player, even look at your recycle(some times I found them in there) or wherever you normally send your photos.
That's what happen in my computer when I moved my photos.

Kodak Z981 -- mode dial issue
I have a Z981 myself. I just set my camera as you did (to "A") but did not experience the issue you mention?
Just to be clear, remember that setting the camera to "A" means "Aperture priority", meaning that you can control the lens aperture (with the "jog dial" on the top of the camera) and the camera will automatically set the shutter speed to create a proper exposure. "A" does NOT mean automatic exposure control. You must use "P" (Programmed) mode to make the camera make all the decisions about shutter speed and lens aperture.
I am including a web link to the User Guide for the Z981. You might want to revisit the Guide to make sure you are using the correct settings for your pictures.
BTW, I like my Z981 quite a bit, especially the zoom. I've taken some great pictures with it.
