Screen will not turn on when the power button is pressed.
If the battery is uncharged, the camera will not turn off. Charge the battery in the adapter, insert it, and then try turning on the camera.
If the battery is charged but the camera still won’t turn on, it may not be inserted properly. Insert the battery into the camera while making sure the gold plates are touching the gold contacts in the camera. Then make sure it snaps securely under the red latch.
When using the camera’s buttons, the camera does not respond.
If the buttons or dials on the top of the camera do not respond or respond only sometimes, the cameras buttons may have dirt or other material under or around the button. Follow the Top Button Cover Replacement guide to disassemble the camera's control cover and clean it.
If the camera shows no sign of powering on, ensure the battery is charged and inserted correctly. If the camera seems to be on and the camera’s other buttons or mode dials do not respond, the entire button cover assembly may need to be replaced.
When the screen is pressed, it will not respond.
Sometimes electronic devices may not start up properly. Restart the device and try using the touch screen again.
A damaged or cracked touch screen may prevent it from working. Please refer to the LCD Replacement guide.
The battery cover door will not keep the battery in to power the camera.
If the battery door will not stay closed, the release latch on the outside of the cover may not have been slid back into place. Close the door while sliding the latch into the locked position.
