I have done this before but will try now again. However you say batteries..do you mean the internal battery as well?
i had thought of this but do not know where to find the internal battery?
I can only see reference to the (large) battery and card...which of course I know how to remove. I am talking about an internal lithium battery? which I thought might also be in the camera?
I wasn't sure but didn't want to take a chance opening the camera completely. I have put the battery back in and still can not get an image on the screen. I was thinking that there might be a software issue and could try to hardboot some how as I suspect it will be a software problem.
Ok. Thanks. Is this something that is somewhat common or have i just been unlucky?
