If the lens cap is in place it may detect a jam and not power up. It will however light up and then power off.
You didn't offer such a detail but maybe by me telling you this you'll notice it.
I have a Kodak EasyShare CX6230 that I bought for my wife about a year ago. Everything works fine except that I can't get the kodak battery or any other batteries for that matter to power it up. I have left it plugged in for several days to see if the kodak battery would charge,but nothing. I called kodak and they said they can't figure it out, took it to a camera store and they can't figure it out either. Any help would be really appreciated.
Thanks in advance to whomever replies.
