The camera is a finepix s5700. When I try to power it up

Customer Question

The camera is a finepix s5700.

When I try to power it up the small light at the l/h side of the back of the camera flashes once but nothing else happens. ie there's no bleep sound and the camera is inopperable.

I've changed the batteries but still no response.

Thank you for your question, my name is Richard.

Can you please take out the battery and clean the copper terminals in the battery compartment with a sharp knife. Put the batteries back, and try to turn it on.

If it is still not working, plug it into the charger and wait for 30 seconds and re-try. Make take up to five attempts and if it still will not turn on, please let me know.

Thank you
