The people at KODAK are way above the curve when it comes to customer service and are known for quick replies.

Typrice gave you great advice. Always try contacting KODAK. Make sure you also register your camera at KODAK if you still are able to do so.

I've had very similar experiences with my EasyShare camera. The lens would either get stuck while extended or the device would do exactly as you described.

I made the mistake of using cheap batteries. That caused my KODAK to not turn on and when it did light up, it would power down quickly.
Taking batteries out of the freezer or refrigerator and immediately throwing them into the camera also prevented it from powering on.

Hope this helps.
