The problem you describe is frequently battery related. Make sure that you have the correct battery type installed, and that the batteries are fresh/fully charged. If the problem persists, you may have corrosion on the battery contacts inside that camera that is preventing full battery power from flowing into the camera. Remove the batteries and wipe the inside camera contacts firmly with a dry cloth (heavy corrosion may require cleaning with a wire brush, steel wool, or sand paper). Remove any residue that may have fallen into the battery compartment during cleaning, then wipe both ends of the batteries and reinstall them in the camera. This cleaning solves the problem about 90% of the time, and I hope it works for you.

The problem you describe is power related, and is usually caused by one or both of the following:

1. Your batteries may need to be replaced. Batteries get old and lose their ability to accept and hold a charge, so they may be very low even with an overnight charge. Check the battery power with a voltmeter if possible, but batteries often need replacing if they are a year or more old.

2. Corrosion buildup on battery and camera contacts is a common problem, especially if a camera is idle for long periods. Remove the batteries and check all contacts for a white, green or blue buildup. Even if you don't see anything, wipe the battery contacts and the camera contacts firmly with a clean dry cloth. Heavy buildups, if present, may require cleaning with a fine wire brush, steel wool, or sandpaper. After cleaning make sure that there is no buildup residue in the camera's battery compartment. Then install and charge the batteries.

Other possibilities, although rare, are problems with the charger or the camera's power circuitry. You can check the charger output with a voltmeter, but troubleshooting the camera's circuitry requires a professional camera shop.

Mitsubishi vs-60705 grenn power button goes on


It is an error code for short protection---the most common cause for this is one or both of the pico fuses that protect the convergence IC's are bad--set will detect no voltage and instantly shut off.

Zoom and camera shuts off


Verify you have the right kind of battery and fully charge it.
The lense issue you describe commonly happens when the device cannot access enough power to function correctly, so it retracts and powers off to avoid getting your lense stuck in the 'out' position if the battery goes dry.
