Suddenly my camera will only turn on for about 2 seconds/ the screen flashes on too quick for me to see any of the icons and then the power light goes off. The lens is still sticking out and I have to keep turning it off and on for it to finally close. Usually, theres a short sound effect when it turns on and I don't hear that anymore either... I put new batteries in and that didn't work...could it be that the batteries are not strong enough? This is a brand new camera and I am REALLY FRUSTRATED! :( PLEASE HELP!

Hi. It can be a problem with flash capacitor. To check if it is the case you should be able to power your camera at least for 10 seconds. If you can not power your camera for this time from batteries, try to use external DC 7.4V 2A power supply. After powering your camera just follow this procedure. 1. Turn on the camera. 2. Turn off the flash by pressing flash button (be sure that flash is OFF but not in AUTO regime). 3. Turn off the camera. 4. Turn on the camera. If after these operations camera can be powered from batteries and you can make pictures than the problem is in the flash capacitor which should be replaced. Or you still can make pictures with your camera without using a flash.
Try using another memory stick, or insert a confirmed good memory stick, if OK, the memory stick is defective, if the same error, try pressing reset at the back of camera, a small hole beside the the DC jack. if OK, then fine, if still the same, camera needs repair. thanks
