Hello, my name is Rusty. Are you able to get to the menus in video setting?

no Rusty

Hmm, unfortunately that's how we are able to reset the camera's settings. Remove the battery for 15 minutes. Hold the shutter button for one minute during that time. Tell me if that brings it back to life.

Hi there and welcome
This is not a setting you can cause for this, so it is an issue thats occurring on the camera.
Do you see anything at all on the screen when you first turn it on?
