No response when Power button is pressed ¶ 

When the power button is pushed, the camera does not respond.

Battery inserted incorrectly ¶ 

Remove the battery pack and make sure the terminals go in first. Once inserted properly, the battery lock will click into place.

Batteries are dead ¶ 

Place the battery pack in the charger. Once it is charged, put the batter pack back into the camera and press the power button.

Flash does not work  ¶ 

When taking a picture the flash does not go off.

Flash is turned off ¶ 

Access the flash settings via the menu button on the camera. Check to see if the flash is on.

Flash bulb is burnt out ¶ 

The flash will need to be replaced. In order to change the flash, follow this guide.

Batteries won’t hold charge ¶ 

Despite charging your battery endlessly, it only works for a short amount of time or not at all.

Battery has reached a low temperature ¶ 

Battery performance decreases at low temperatures. Try warming the battery by putting it in your pocket. The battery can be more effectively heated with a terminal cover on.

If this attempt fails and the battery is still depleted soon after charging, it has reached the end of its life. Purchase a new battery.

Lens error message displayed on screen ¶ 

When trying to take a picture “Lens Error” is displayed on the screen and the screen is black.

Something on the lens is preventing it from opening properly ¶ 

Take a lens cleaning cloth and gently wipe the lens to remove the object causing the problem.

The lens is not properly positioned to open and close ¶ 

If there is a gap between the lens and where to lens retracts into the camera, correct the lens by carefully rotating the lens by applying light pressure in that area until you hear a click.

The lens is broken ¶ 

If the lens error persists, this may indicate that the camera lens is broken. A replacement lens must be purchased to replace the broken lens.
