Good afternoon,

The flashing light suggests an initialisation fault, more often than not its the battery.

You mentioned the battery is charged, can you advise if this is the original battery and how it was charged?

In terms of troubleshooting have you performed a power cycle\reset, by removing the battery and memory card, and holding down the power button for 15 seconds, then trying to turn it back on with just battery inserted (leave the memory card out)?

Regards

Thanks for the quick response I tried your suggestion but no success
It is the original battery and it has been charged via a mains charger
I have had it checked and it is 50% charged at the moment

This sounds like a hardware fault on the camera, most likely its a PCB failure.

I would recommend you take the camera to Jessops they offer a very good repair service, and have had very good feedback from a number of customers who have used them over the years.
