    I have the same problem: Even with new batteries, when we turn it to the SCN, camera and video modes, the camera will power on for about 1 second and then turn off. In the file review and set-up modes, the power will stay on.

Green Mode stuck on


remove the batteries and the memory/SD card. replace the batteries first. power up the camera (this will help save your pics from possible deletion). If you can get to the menu of your camera, here is where you'll find the 'green mode'. check the settings. if its on, turn it off. after saving, reload your SD card and try to take another picture.

Camera goes to sleep too quickly...is there a way to adjust?


To save battery power, the camera automatically goes into sleep mode and the monitor turns off if there is no operation after 3 minutes when the camera is turned on (when the lens cover is open and the monitor is on). No picture is taken even if the shutter button is fully pressed in this mode. Operate the zoom button or other buttons to restore the camera from sleep mode before taking a picture. If the camera is left on for 15 minutes, it automatically turns off (the lens cover closes and the monitor turns off). Press POWER to turn the camera on.

If it still in warranty send it back.
If out of warranty and as this is a 'cheap disposable' item there are no economic repair options -so you could try to dismantle it your self to see what is what and if no joy - replace it.

Camera Wont turn On: Is it stuck in USB mode? How do i fix it?


I was able to get past this problem by removing and reinserting the battery. This caused, in effect, a hard reset of the camera, which let me power it up fresh and take pictures again. Of course, it's not exactly reassuring that the problem arose in the first place,

- Scroll to the right until you are in SETUP 2
- Go down to Battery Type

- Select Alkaline (for Non-rechargeable batteries)
- Press MENU/OK for changes to be saved

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.
