I have a Kodak Z700, and I love it. But following some rough travel treatment, it won't come on and stay on anymore. In fact, when I turn it to "auto," the white Kodak screen comes on for a second, then dies, leaving only a blinking red light to indicate it's alive at all. I use lithium batteries that have plenty of charge left. My smart card has never been replaced, but the "internal memory" and "smart card memory" are usually the same.
Is it time to put the camera to pasture?
