Re: Won't stay turned on!
IF YOU GO IN TO YOUR CAMERAS MENU AND OPTIONS YOU WILL FIND A SETTING FOR THAT. EITHER UNDER POWER SAVER OR MAIN CAMERA OPTIONS AND SETTINGS. I HAD TO CHANGE MY DELAY TIME TO MAX. ALL CAMERAS NOW HAVE A TIME DELAY BEFORE POWERING OFF TO SAVE YOUR BATTERIES. ITS A GOOD IDEA IF YOU ACCIDENTLY SET YOUR CAMERA DOWN AND FORGET. BUT IT IS A PAIN WHEN IT COMES SET FOR 5 SECONDS.
HOPE THATS ALL IT IS

If none of the suggested causes
helps resolve the issue, then I suggest you bring it in for repair.
Please check the following things when the camera does not turn on.
Possible causes and how to handle them 1. The camera is not on
Turn on the camera. (Operation procedure varies
between camera models. Please refer to the camera user guide supplied
with your camera.)
2. The rechargeable battery is not fully charged.
Make sure the rechargeable battery is fully
charged. If the battery has not been used for an extended period of
time, or if it is being used for the first time, it may not be fully
charged. In cases like this, fully charge the battery and then discharge
it completely in the camera several times to bring the battery back to
its normal performance.
The rechargeable battery's capacity diminishes the
longer the battery is used. When the battery consumption becomes
quicker, the battery life may be at its end. Replace the battery with a
3. The battery terminals are dirty.
When camera does not operate with a brand-new
alkaline battery (for cameras that use AA-size batteries) or with a
fully charged rechargeable battery, the terminals may be dirty. Polish the terminals with a dry cloth and make sure the terminals are
clean. If the terminals are covered with oil from your skin or similar
matter, this may cause poor contact and power may not be fully supplied
to the camera.
Also, polish the battery charger terminals with a
dry cloth before charging the battery. If the terminals are covered with
oil from your skin or similar matter, this may cause poor contact and
the battery may not be fully charged.
4. The batteries are not installed correctly (for cameras that use AA-size batteries)
For cameras that use AA-size batteries, multiple
batteries are used in one camera. Make sure the direction of each
battery matches the direction indicated on the camera. If any of the
batteries are improperly inserted, the camera will not operate.
5. The battery cover or CF card (SD card) slot cover is not securely closed
Most cameras have a lock mechanism on the battery
cover. The camera will not turn on if the battery cover is not locked or
securely closed, or if the CF card (SD card) slot cover is not securely
closed. Make sure these covers are securely closed.
If your camera does not operate after checking
each of these things, or if there is any visible damage on your camera
that could be the cause, please contact the nearest Service Center.
If unused for any length of time, rechargeable batteries lose their ability to retain a charge. Try it with a brand new, fully-charged battery. FWIW, I recharge all my camera and flashgun batteries monthly.
If you were able to take one shot before the camera packed up it can be that the battery does not have charge on it and so after the first shot it has drained the battery. So check out the charge on it or repeat charging to test once again.
Other wise it can be that the camera control unit is faulty. Try and reset by removing battery for a while and trying once again.
take out the batteries and make sure that they are good. Some times it doesn't matter if they are new they sometimes wont work. Double check the polarity when putting them in. Try another set of batteries, is this a rechargeable one? you didnt mention the model.
1. Make sure you will install a new or fully charged battery/batteries into your camera. 2. Clean the battery contacts. a. Remove the battery/batteries and the memory card from your camera, then wipe the battery contacts with a soft, clean cloth. b. Reinstall the battery/batteries into your camera. Please make sure that you are installing a fresh/ fully charged battery c. Without the memory card, turn your camera on. 3. Please test with the a different battery If you do not have access to another battery Try these steps instead: Please take the battery out of the camera. b. Insert the charger into the unit from the main socket and turn the camera on. If the camera works you will need to replace the battery. If you camera doesn?t switch on you will need to order a No power repair or a new cable.

There is no firmware available for this model online.
Rechargable batteries actually do not recharge the 100 times advertised. After maybe 10 times they are reduced in capacity noticably. For instance, new alkaline batteries will last me maybe 60 pictures, however the rechargables are only good for about 5. To test this try taking out the batteries, and put back in before you wish to try them, also turn off the flash if it is not needed.(flash uses a lot of power)
