Without a memory card, the camera did power on & after re-inserting the card, the camera powered on. The camera goes into setup asking for language, date & time to be set like first time use. Can take a photo but when zoom is operated, the camera powers off - when switched back on it asks for language, date etc. After switching on a few times the camera powers off when ok is pressed after setting the date etc. Lens does not extend at any time.
