Having problems with your Kodak EASYSHARE Z1485 IS Digital Camera ?
I have a Z1485 IS and just replaced the battery. The camera powers on, the lens extends, then the lens retracts and the camera shuts off. I've tried other brand new batteries with the same result.
Please advise. Thank you :)
Does the lens extend and retrace completely/ It sounds more like a lens related problem to me.

Low battery? I got my camera today, setup the setup menus, and had started to check out the features when the low battery warning came up. So I replaced the batteries and tried to turn the camera on but now all I get is the green light comes on for 3 seconds, goes off and approx. 5 seconds later the light flashes on, then off and the camera beeps 3 times, and nothing after that. The lens does not move at all. I went out and bought brand new batteries that were industrial strength and tried those
