    I have the exact same problem. I started a couple months ago and drives me nuts. Does anyone have a solution (other than having the camera looked at)?

    I'm glad to see that other people are having the same problem. I'm so frustrated that this keeps happening!! What have you done with your cameras?

We have the same problem (still in warranty) and sent the camera to Kodak. They said the camera had sand damage, which voids the warranty. They want $150 to repair.

My Kodak Z885 shuts off when I try to use the zoom even after I changed the battery to a DuraCell Ultra CR-V3. Any idea why?

I experienced the same thing while i was fixing a problem with my lens not extending fully. I simply used a vacuum cleaner over the lens to remove possible dirt/sand. After my initial (lens) problem was solved, using the zoom would automatically shut off the camera, so i used the vacuum some more and all the dirt preventing the zoom from extending is gone, so the camera works 100%

My camera shuts off when I my zoom is nearly halfway through

Make sure your batter is fully charged, and is not bad. This kind of reaction can happen with a weak battery or partly charged.
If that is not it, then the camera needs repair.

Zoom out and it shuts down

Don't think you'll have to send it in for repair. How old is your battery? Keep in mind that it isn't meant to last for more than a year or two, regardless of how often it is used. A camera will automatically shut down if its battery power is getting low. This usually occurs when the camera is doing power intensive actions, such as zooming (it uses a motor). Anyways, Amazon has some generic options for you if your battery may be over-the-hill:

Please check the battery contacts inside the camera. Do they look gold and shiny? Or do they look a little dirty? It wouldn't hurt to try cleaning them with a pencil eraser, just don't leave any tiny pieces of eraser in the camera. Hope this helps!
