Hello Freddy. Thanks for your interest.
When I connect the camera to the computer it becomes impossible to switch it on.
I'm using windows 7.
It doesn't make any noise except the beep beep that you get when it comes on, but it doesn't come on. I can't access the photos that are on the camera. The front of the camera (the lens) doesn't come out as it usually does.
Many thanks for that very full reply. Now all I've got to do is try to follow your instructions. I'll let you know how I get on.
I put the memory card into the computer and it all worked. So many thanks for that. Simple when you know how.
