Hi, my name is XXXXX XXXXX it would be my pleasure to help with your issue today. I've been an expert here on Just Answer for 3+ years now and have helped over 1500 customers successfully get their camera and video issues resolved. Hopefully, we can get your camera working for you again as well.

First I have a question for you as well as a couple of things for you to try to see if we can get any response out of your camera.

Can you tell me what kind of batteries you are using in your camera. Are the standard disposable alkaline batteries, or are the of the rechargeable type such as Lithium-Ion or NimH? The reason for my asking this is because this older model camera is based on a 3vdc system. It was made beofore we had access to newer higher output voltage lithium-Ion rechargeable batteries, and if used, they may output 3vdc each and damage the camera.

Secondly, something for you to try. Remove the batteries, lens, film, and any other accessories such as a flash that may be removable from your camera and let it sit for a few minutes. Then re-install new disposable alkaline batteries only into your camera and power it on to see if you can get any response.

If you still don't have any luck, then there's most likely an internal issue with the power supply in the camera. Unfortunately, with the age of this camera, parts for repairs are going to be very hard to come by. If you aren't able to get it going, then I'd have to recommend that you replace it. With the cost of labor at most camera repair shops being $75-100/hour with a minimum charge, you can purchase another of these model cameras for less than what it would cost to get it repaired.

Hope this helps. Let me know if there's anything else that I can do to assist you. Please don't forget to click accept and leave a positive rating for me. Thanks and have a wonderful day!!!
