If removing of the batteries, for a few moments, (that will reset the camera) and reinserting them won't change the startup, I'm afraid you have a defect in the camera. Make sure you have the correct batteries, as described in the manual. If nothing can bring the camera to work correct, or if the same error keeps coming back, please return the camera and ask for an other one.
What d you mean with batteries are added?
When you use batteries, always make sure all four are from the same brand, quality, capacity and if possible, from the same batch. Never use different batteries in one camera.
lways charge sets of batteries (2 or 4) together.
Do not use alkaline batteries unless it is absolutely necessary. In some (most) cases, alkaline batteries may have a shorter service life than NiMH. Alkaline battery performance is limited, especially at low temperatures. The use of NiMH batteries is recommended.
Never use manganese (Zinc-Carbon) batteries in your camera.
Always be sure the battery is charged and suited for your camera.
Check contacts of the battery and in the battery compartment of your camera. Dirty or oxidised contacts can be cleaned with a dry cloth. Never use sharp tools to clean contacts or anything in or on your camera.
Always charge the battery before using it for the first time, or if you have not used it for a long period. 3 months is a very long period.
its just a matter of batteries...some are not powerful enough to operate the camera ....Try to change them and buy some real good ones..like Duracell or Tatra...do not make any compromises when buy the batteries...get the best cause these kinda cameras really require powerful ones...or ...try to get a set of rechargeable ...
Reset the menus to default or factory settings. Then test the camera again. Make sure that the battery is fully charged or new. You might consider to buy a new battery (Ebay is a good place) for this camera. Then test. Problems like this can show up when the battery is weak or not fully charged. You may try to remove the battery for 24 hours and then after try it again.
Either the lens is out of alignment, or the CCD or worse has gone defective. Either way it sounds like it may be worth it to just purchase a new camera. You do always have the option of repair as well. Thanks, Lee
Ensure that settings are OK, and check if the curtain is opening. If everything else is OK, then all black picture means that lens assembly, wiring to CCD sensor, or main digital board is faulty. More likely one of the first two. The fault must be fixed at a repair shop.
Yes, there is definitely a fault with your camera.
You should be able to return it for a replacement.
I wouldn't experiment too much with batteries in this camera. batteries discharging this quickly are likely to overheat, causing unmentionable catastrophe.
I have the same camera... and it was doing the same thing AFTER i
changed my old batteries, because they were getting low. It was only
after i put in the NEW batteries that i had this problem... I tried
putting the old batteries back in and sure enough it worked again, so
it probably all just depends on the brand of the battery you use.
