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%
Fixing your problem could be as simple as cleaning the battery contacts
in the camera, or the solution could be a lot more complex and
expensive. Here's a link to the Kodak Help Center - it provides a
simple Q&A format to diagnose the problem and propose a solution.

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!
ok i fixed mine by spitting on the battery contacts and wiping it off on the inside of my shirt...so it basically just needs to be cleaned-but make sure you dry it afterwards or the battery might break or leak
