Can you remove the battery and then hold the shutter button down for 60 seconds then release.

Then connect the battery and try to turn it on

Local repair firm says nothidden caller bar removed
Expert:  Richard replied 1 year ago.

Its still blocked.

But if it is still not turning on then it means the mainboerd has failed. You would need to replace this but if it is not under warranty, then the cost to repair would exceed the value of the camera and in this situation I would advise you to replace the camera. It will be cheaper in the long run.

Talk talk say allow 2 hours! You gets what ou pays for! But they do have cheap international calling!
Expert:  Richard replied 1 year ago.

Yeah that is very true! but I tried a few times.

If you call internationally look at Google Hangouts, its virtually free

Talk talk have sent me an email to say I have removed that feature so perhaps it is possible to telephone me now.
