This problem occurs when there is zoom-block problem. The solution is to change all the zoom-block, but normally this is more expensive than a new camera.
This mechanism fails due to sand, dust or just useful life expired.
Your fix could be as simple as cleaning the camera's battery contacts,
or it could be something more serious and expensive. Before you pay
for expensive repairs that you may or may not need, check the Kodak

This problem is related to the lens block assembly, when turns the power the zoom motor stuck and set goes in power off mode. To rectify the problem you have to replace the lens block assy. you didn't mention model No. here so that i am not been able to tell you the exact part number of the camera.
Thanks for using fixya.
To save battery power, the camera automatically goes into sleep mode and the monitor turns off if there is no operation when the camera is turned on (when the lens cover opens and the monitor is on). No picture is taken even if the shutter button is fully pressed in this mode.
Operate the zoom lever or other buttons to restore the camera from sleep mode before taking a picture. If the camera is left for 15 minutes, it automatically turns off (the lens cover closes and the monitor turns off). Press POWER to turn the camera on.
You have either experienced a lens error or your zoom dial is broken (both usually caused by some sort of impact damage, but which can be spontaneously occuring).
Look for an error message on your camera's LCD screen such as "E18," or "lens error restart camera." If you do not see a lens error but simply cannot retract your zom lens (go into wide angle mode) via the zoom lever then it simply maybe a broken command dial. Either way, however, you will need to have the camera serviced in all likelihood. Call tech support at 1-800-828-4040 M-F from 8 am to 12 midnight EST and Saturdays until 8 pm EST. Hope this helps.
