which I have a G1X, has suddenly frozen. When turned on, the display flashes for a fraction of a second, then turns off. The green indicator light flashes continuously. It takes photos, but there appears to be no exposure control. The review button works, but no other buttons except to change from one picture to the next, by rotating the dial. I've tried putting a fresh battery in and changing the memory card.
I was working in a fairly dusty environment when this happened.
Have tried all the above- still not working
Camera is 2yrs 5 months old.
Not dropped or shocked
Operated in fairly hot conditions in Belize earlier this year- but doubt if over 100F or 85% humidity.
Has been subjected to a few raindrops, but not got wet.
screen still works for review, so screen is ok. Seems a firmware problem? Is there a method of resetting the camera to factory settings without using the menu (which doesn't come up when the button is pressed)?
please close this 'justanswer'.
