Your camera is a fairly low specification by today's standards and it would probably cost more to repair than to replace it.

I suggest you take it along to your local phone doctor for a qualified opinion...

Is this information not in the manual ?

Hitachi Cameras | Answered on Jul 29, 2017

There is a mode switch within the deck assembly that is probably dirty but not cleanable. I haven't repaired one of those for some years and am sure spares are no longer available for it. The 58 is V8 format and should be OK but may show similar symptoms due to age, in the future.

ive just had the same problem and solved it first you have to plug it into the pc with the usb then just before it goes onto the menu for pc,bridge,and pc camera pull the lead out quickly as you can. the camera will stay on to allow you to the next step

go into the menu and click next menu and go to fr. no. reset. and click execute then go back to the second menu and go to sys. reset and click it the click execute.

once this is done turn the camera off wait 10 seconds then hold down the power button until it turns on

Try formatting the sd card using the camera. You should be able to find in the menus.
