Hi, thank you for contacting JustAnswer.com. My name is Russell. I will do my best to provide the right answer to your question.
The Power button on this model is not far from the Shutter button. So I suggest that the probable cause of the problem is that the two buttons are being effectively pressed at the same time, when you turn the camera Off. Not that I am suggesting a slip of the fingers, but rather either
A. excessive pressure on the Power button when turning it Off.
or
B. a defective switch that is transferring pressure from the Power button to the Shutter button too.
Why isn't an extra picture being taken at time of powering On ? if (B) is the case ? obviously because the camera being Off, an extra unintended press of the Shutter button cannot take a picture at that time.
I think your camera will require either a very delicate touch when turning it Off, or else will need to be repaired.
If you would like to hear your options for Kodak camera repair, please Reply telling me what your region is, by zip code for instance. Let me know what you think, and how it goes, please. Thanks.
