Having problems with your Kodak EasyShare Z885 Digital Camera ?

Can't turn Kodak Z885 camera back on

\015 I got a low battery indication on the LCD screen. When I replaced the batteries, I was prompted to fix the date. When I did, the camera went off and wouldn't come back on again. \015\012\015\012I replaced the batteries again and even rushed out and bought lithium camera batteries. Still no luck.\015\012\015\012Kodak's says to mail them the camera for a max of $70.00 plus tax and shipping both ways. This is about the same current cost of a new Z885. \015\012\015\012When I look into the battery compartment, I can see what appears to be a circuit board mounted switch that lines up with a slot in the plastic camera case. It looks like something is supposed to hit this switch when the batteries are inserted.\015\012\015\012I hope someone has a solution other than Kodak.\015

My Kodak V1233, isn't working right. If I turn it on, it will only turn on a second and extend the lense and then shuts off (it's fully charged). I can eventually get to take pictures, if I start by hitting the favorite button, and then the camcorder button and then quickly hitting the the camera button. I can take pictures, but can't see them, I only see a black screen. The camera will not power off this way. If I take the battery out, and then put it back in, and hit the favorite button,
