I have a Kodak G600. I can't figure out how to charge my rechargeable Kodak batteries using the G600. When the camera, with the batteries in it, is docked, shouldn't the little battery light on the dock light up so you know it is charging?

In the Kodak cameras of that vintage the original 3V rechargeable battery was made of 2 regular AA rechargeable batteries and a special piece of plastic that pushes some microswitch in the battery compartment. If this piece of plastic is missing, the dock would not charge the batteries. You either need the special CRV3 battery or to charge the normal AA rechargeables with a separate charger.
Depending on which camera model you have, you can use regular (lithium!) AA batteries in these cameras, no need to buy the specialty 2-battery rechargeable pack and use the printer dock to charge. You can go with regular NiMH rechargeable batteries as well.
if your are using the ordinary AA rechargeable battery it will not charge., Camera dock will charge only on a 2 Pack AA battery like KAA2HR batteries or the 2 AA battery that attached together (Ni-MH rechargeable battery pack )
Hi, I think I can answer your question, i just tried something with my camera and camera dock.
My camera came with a Kodak battery pack(pack that looks like 2 batteries connected together). When I place my camera with this battery pack in it on the dock, a green light comes on on the dock and the batteries begin to charge. However, when i place any other rechargeable batteries in the camera on the dock, it has no effect, my theory is that it must be a battery pack, possibly by the same manufacturer so that it will charge correctly
what rechargeable batteries are you using and what's your method of charging?
If your using a dock for charging - make sure you have the battery pack kodak kaa2hr otherwise the dock won't charge it
if you're using a separate charger - it's ok to use other AA ni-mh
please check the age of your batteries as well.. batts, even rechargeable eventually wear out - they can last up to 300 charging cycles and a year or a little more than that is enough for you consider buying a new set
if you say that you barely use the cam, batteries still deteriorate through time
