My Samsung NX1000 wont turn on. The green light comes on

This answer was rated:

My Samsung NX1000 won't turn on. The green light comes on when I turn it to 'on' but nothing else happens, and when I turn it to 'off' the green light stays on. It is fully charged and I've also changed the battery. What's wrong and how do I fix it?

Hello my name is***** look forward to assisting and am very sorry to hear that you are having this problem.
I want to warn you that it is possible you will need to replace a part in order to fix this.
There are a few different things that can cause this and a couple different parts so we would need to troubleshoot to find out for sure.
What kind of battery did you replace it with? How old is the camera?

We bought the camera second hand, we've had it for 12 months and it has been fine. The serial no is A4AWCNQC800207E. The battery is a Samsung BP1030 Li-ion battery
.
I apologize butI need to opt out and open this to all experts.

Hello, and thanks for your question. My name is ***** ***** I will help you today.

This seems to be a hardware issue. Please remove the battery from your Camera for 10 minutes. Put it back and turn on. Does your Camera turn on or make any noise/sound? Do the lens open?

Nothing at all happens now. No green light.

I have now changed the (new)battery and the green light comes on but nothing else happens. Green light stays on when I switch it off.
Thanks so much for your reply and update.

This means the lens or the camera's board are faulty. You should bring your camera to a local camera repair. They can open up and test/replace faulty part(s).

Thanks for your rating. No need to rate again. Thank you!
