Are you doing anything special to get the camera to power up? Or it fixes itself and starts?

It fixes itself and starts but has a mind of its own! I am 82 so pleased be aware.

Thank you David, and I will keep that in mind! :)
this is normally a signal of residue power build up.
Can you remove the battery from the camera then hold the power button for 60 seconds, then release.
Put the battery back in, turn it and and check how it now performs please.
