Hi, thank you for contacting JustAnswer.com. My name is Russell. I will do my best to provide the right answer to your question.
That camera has a square / oblong battery with three terminals.
If you put it in wrong, the terminals won't make contact.
But that's fairly obvious... I doubt that you made that mistake.
First: look for the three terminals inside the camera that match the three on the battery. If one is broken off by some mischance, then the battery won't provide power to the camera.
If none are broken off, then you may have a different problem.
Try cleaning the terminals in the battery compartment, after removing the batteries, first by rubbing off with a fresh pencil eraser, then by wiping the terminals off with cotton swabs moistened in rubbing alcohol, then letting them dry off for 5+ minutes with the battery compartment door open, then try turning the camera On again.
Let me know how it goes, and what you observe, please. If that doesn't get the camera working, I will have further advice.
How old is the battery you have tried with this camera, please?
Then the camera itself is defective, and under/within warranty coverage too.
I advise you to contact Kodak, and put in a failed-within-warranty claim for free repair (or replacement, should they so choose) of your camera.
To start the warranty repair process, go to
and scroll to the bottom and click on
Repair for Kodak product
after reading the information as appropriate and as much as you are interested in it.
