I got my F828 back from Sony last night via UPS. It was sent in for repair of a broken bettery latch (second time for the same repair). This time after being gone one month, it comes back with a "Passed QA" sticker on it. Thanks Sony, the sticker looks very nice. Oh, one small problem... now the camera will not power up. I have tried more than one battery that works in another camera, so that is not an issue. I have also reset the camera using the reset button found under the batter cover door.
Any ideas short of sending it back at my own expense for the third time.

Re: F828 Will Not Power Up
I also had a similar problem, except mine would not power off. It worked fine before I sent to Sony repair for some other warranty work, but when it came back I loaded the battery, shot a few pics and could not turn the thing off! Kind of frustrating walking straight back to the Sony store and send it back the same day.
You're right it does take a long time for Sony repairs, but at least the tech was nice enough to phone to discuss the problem. In my case they replaced the system board and ribbon cable and has been working pefectly (knock on wood) for a couple of months.

Unplug the computer. Then run the UPS self-test and the unit will display whether it finds an overload fault, whether the battery needs to be charged or replaced.
Here are the instructions (copied from the User Manual):
Turn UPS on: Press and hold the ON/OFF button for one second.
Run a Self-Test: Press and hold the MUTE/TEST button for two seconds (until alarm beeps several times).
The test will last 10 seconds. All LCD Display icons will be illuminated and the alarm will sound.
If the fault icon remains lit, the battery-supplied outlets are overloaded. Unplug powered devices until you remove the overload.
If the "Replace" icon remains lit and alarm continues to sound, the UPS batteries need to be recharged or replaced. Allow UPS to charge for 24 hours and repeat self-test.
Last Saturday evening, I experienced the exact same behavior on my Panasonic PT-52LCX65; it shut itself off without warning. I turned it back on, and it shut itself back off after about a minute, and the red "Lamp" LED on the TV began blinking.
I never got any warning message that the lamp was about to go out, but I've just replaced the lamp and now the TV is working just fine. We had to mail-order the new lamp, because neither H. H. Gregg (where I bought the TV on "Black Friday" 3 years ago), Fry's Electronics, nor Best Buy carries the part locally.
My wife found the new bulb WITH its holding apparatus for something like $120 online, roughly half what other sites were charging. We paid roughly $55 for UPS Next Day Air. The first bulb that was sent arrived broken (some UPS rep apparently thought "Fragile" meant "Shake and Drop"), but the company we ordered from cheerfully rushed us another one, and the second one was in much better shape. (Panasonic doesn't pack these replacement bulbs very well; there's a heavy bulb with a lot of air around it that Panasonic doesn't fill.)
More details available if anyone wants 'em. Hope this helps. -- ChuckE
Try resetting the camera. It is next to the battery release. I had a similar issue and posted help. No remedey. So, after praying about this issue, I was lead to power it down and eliminate all the power by taking out the battery push the power button and many others. I found the reset button pushed it and it is all working now. The praying for a solution was key. Praise Jesus. DRD
you may have to check the power cord and if that is in place and okay, you will have to check the fuse on the ups.
if all that does not work, send it back to the comany for repairs or contact a repair personnel
