Kodak Zx5 sucks!
I bought Kodak Playsport Zx5 two months ago. I tried it in shallow sea water and took it on the rain once. Today, to my great dissapointment, the screen is allways on and the hdmi door won't open. Apparently it got stuck due to sea water salt residue. I am selling to whoever wants to get some screwdriver fun with it.
Sorry to hear what happened to your ZX5. Well, not just Kodak, but any brand will have lemon product. Just by reading what you wrote, have you washed your ZX5 with fresh water after it took a dip into the sea. After leaving in Canada for years, we know what salt can do if not washed properly.
My ZX3 had experienced the -20c, sleigh rides, downhill sky, cross country sky, swimming pool, hot tub, sea water (recently in Mexico), sandy beach, roller coaster ride and it served me well.
