Question about Concord Camera Eye-Q 2040 Digital Camera
When I turn on the camera it comes up in test mode, and I can't turn it on.
If the switch for take pics/view pics is broken and you have been switching modes by sharp object, you may have inadvertantly removed a circuit trace or a component all together. The circuit behind the switch will need to be repaired by a qualified technician which, in this case, may cost more than the device is worth.
Hope this helps,

With your camcorder powered ON, and set to VCR / playback, there should show on the screen (viewer) something indicating "Menu" or a "FN" (Function) option. Select "Menu" (or Function icon to lead to the Menu). Check through the Menu options to find "Mode", and find the option for Normal Recording or playback, as opposed to "Test Mode", or "Demonstration Mode".
If this does not solve the problem, try this: Turn the camera OFF, remove camera battery, re-install battery, turn camera ON and see if that Re-set the camera. If not, it might be resolved by manually resetting the time and date. Then go to the Menu again to set Mode to normal recording or playback.
If those do not correct the problem, there is no shame in calling the camera company to speak with Tech-services. That's what they are there for.
