I'm not sure.
I want a new camera but, this one has been fine until now.
If you are serious about a new camera, what better way to help finance it then by selling this one? However, you will get more money if it works. I recommend trying to get the battery, or if it supports it, the AC adapter method, and find out if it will power. If not, and you are still in warranty, you should be covered by that.
I'm not real serious if this one will work I'm fine with it maybe I should thoroughly explain what happens.
It powers on Kodak screen & all then shuts off
So, I know its the battery this way & that it worked right before I set the batery to charge.
That sounds like what happens if I try to power on my laptop (all the laptops I have owned did this) with a dead battery. I would try to clean the contacts on the battery and charger (unplug first). Maybe check the outlet or try a different one. Was the battery dead or near dead for an extended period?
No we just sat it on the charger overnight.
Ok, so have you checked other outlets and such? I know you aren't a "noob" but sometimes its the simple things that get overlooked.
The other day I got to set the time then, it cut off.
I have done everything & am now sure it is the battery.
Well, either contact Kodak if you think it is or might be in warranty, otherwise, I would order or buy locally a new battery.
If memory serves this was bought 1-2 years ago so, I highly doubt it's under warranty.
P.S. Thanks for the Help + Rep!
lithium-ion batterys have a circuit board inside to protect it from being overcharged.
Also if the battery i fully discharged, I can appear that the battery is dead.
but somtimes all that is required is a higher votage to kick the battery back into life, the maximum you charger will give the battery is 4.0-4.2volts
but it might require 5volts for a 10 seconds or so to reactivate the battery.
