Re: cant charge camera on dock or print photos
The dock won't charge batteries that are ni-mh kaa2hr or Li-ion battery pack - so check that
about the printer's ability to recognize the cam, try this.. remove batt, put cam on top of dock (when cameras are on a dock, they can use the dock's power so you can print pictures without batteries) check if somethign will come up on the cam screen
if not .. either would need to be sent in for repair. a digital rep will advise you to send both so the repair center can check

you do not charge the camera !
You have to charge the removable battery in the charging dock.
it is then placed on the charging dock that is plugged into the power outlet.
The battery needs to be slided in the direction of the arrow on the charging dock.
The battery is located in the camera at the back near the bottom of the camera. http://www.nodevice.com/download/user_manual/panasonic+nv-vz1.html
Kodak sells three different package versions of their cameras. You can purchase one of their cameras with an adapter but no dock, with adapter and dock, or with adapter and printer dock. The dock and printer dock are also available on line (try eBay) as accessories. The dock is an extremely handy accessory, allowing automatic charging and computer connection. The printer dock though, at least in my experience, is a cumbersome and unreliable method of obtaining low-quality photos.
The Kodak camera dock provides automatic battery charging and automatic connection to your computer when the camera is "docked." There is also a version of the dock that includes a printer, but I have found the printer to be poor quality and very unreliable. The dock must be connected to the computer via USB, and the Kodak EasyShare software must still be installed. The dock is a very handy accessory, but it will not solve your problem. What might help though is a visit to Kodak.com where you can get a free download of the latest EasyShare software that is correct for your operating system.
I posted on July 16 with this flashing problem and played around and got mine working again.
Originally I would charge through the docking port. What I did was pull the charged rechargable batteries out of the camera and took the charging cable from the docking station and pluged it directly into the port on the side of the camera. The camera started working again. Then while the charging cable was pluged into the camera, I reinstalled the rechargable batteries. After installing the batteries I unpluged the charging cable and the camera still works. I have shot and downloaded from the camera pictures with no more problems. Use the docking for downloading pictures and the side port on the camera for recharging the batteries.
I do not know if this has anything to do with the original problem but I did not have any problems with this camera until I placed it on the docking station with non-rechargible batteries.
Hope this helps.
