    I have the same problem as well. The camera will only turn on in play mode and turns off if you turn the dial to any other mode. I too have tried numerous new batteries but with no joy. Any suggestions?

    I am having the same problem. I would push the power button and the power light would flash on then off. It did that for a while and now it doesn't do anything when I push the power button. I've replaced the batteries but no change.

    I am ALSO having the problem described above. I'd appreciate it if someone who figured out what was wrong would share -- I don't really feel like mailing it out for an estimate without an idea what's wrong, I'm too paranoid of people 'taking me for a ride' money wise!

    I recently found that I am having the same problem described by these the previous posters. I press the power button and the light flashes green, but it then immediately ceases all functions. I noticed this problem about two weeks ago. I have not been able to get the camera to operate since then. Can anyone offer a viable solution? Any information wold be greatly appreciated.

Hello, please check your batterries by recharging/replacement. The other less naive problem can be in the optical unit (it can be stuck). If you need more info please advice. Arpi

It is not your battery. I turned it on and off a dozen times with no luck. The lese would make up and down movements, but would never close and camera would not work when open. So while I turned off, I softely push the lense in after a couple of times it went in and closed as normal. After that I turn it back on everything worked normally. Do not push too hard, it may damage the lese.

any camera that has a flash, can trigger a "slave" flash. I have one that came with a little bracket that hooks into the tripod mount point. Work great, it also came with a little tripod so that you could use it for backlighting, etc.
