I have changed the batteries in my station multiple times. Bought new batteries and the station will work for a short time and then go blank. Help!

I have followed the directions in the manual and the station will work for a few minutes and then goes blank.

Have you tried to move the sensor closer to the station ?

Testimonial: "I've been within 10ft of the sensor and about 40ft; too no effect."

    Sorry the only other thing I can think of in the maual you have to place the battieries in the unit and then the sensor and keep them face to face till they adjust , once then you can move your sensor to a proper location I believe it states this in the owners manual if you do not have one you should be able to obtain one on line or call the Oregon Scientific directly with your issue you may have a deffective unit ?

After an oil change the touchscreen on the navigation/radio/bluetooth is not responsive? How do you fix this issue?

I have no clue what changing the oil would have to do with any of this. However, the problem you are describing sounds a lot like the types of problems that occur with a shorted battery cell. I would take a HARD look at the battery and charging system. If your battery is more than 4 years old, it is time to replace it.

If the battery and/or charging system is the cause, you will also very likely have fault codes stored in several of your computer modules. You will have to clear all of these codes from all modules and force a "clean boot" of your computer network to get everything working properly.

Brand new batteries and its tellin me to change them!

please check if the batteries u used before have leaked any oil inside the camera. this damages the metal strip that shorts and two batteries. if there is no damage then tat portion s safe.
the small battery inside battery compartment is for camera date. dont disturb it.
after changing new batteries tha camera works for few time and then shuts down means your camera CCD s consuming lot of power. use a camera adapter to confirm that the camera works in normal power atleast.
even after this. camera shuts off itself. take it to service centre soon.

Could be time for a new camera But check out Kodak Support first. It has been said that cameras in a certain price band[any make/model] are to be considered as disposable -like toasters and kettles I guess.
