Camera turns on then immediately shuts off


I have the same problem - 4 fast beeps and it turns off. My guess is that the lubricants are getting old and sticky - I had a Canon SLR that developed the same problem after being in the extreme cold. Here's a couple of things to try:
  • You can still access the picture review features by holding down the review button while you turn it on (note that if you hold down the trash button you'll see the firmware version.)
  • What doesn't work: Resetting the camera from the setting menu; replacing the battery, replacing the SD card, cursing. 
  • I've been able to consistently get it to function normally by hitting the camera into the palm of my hand on the left side (with the viewing screen facing you), just after turning on the camera.  If this doesn't work, keep hitting harder until it works.  Once on, the camera works normally.

Power key doesn´t work


There must be a problem with your batteries. If you have recently charged your batteries and it happens again, you should try a new set of rechargeable batteries.

You can try conserving charging power usage on camera by turning the flash off so that it doesn't precharge for the next shot.

If it does not work still, try to turn on again camera and immediately press on PLAY button to view pictures. Try to press again on PLAY button so you'll be on the mode to

If it still does not work, can you please try Non-rechargeable batteries (Alkaline) with your camera if it won't work with the Nickel-metal Hydride (Ni-MH) Rechargeable batteries.

Make sure you have set properly the battery type of the camera under SETUP 2 for Alkaline.
