Hi, thank you for contacting My name is Russell. I will do my best to provide the right answer to your question.

Try setting the date and time on the camera. That's something you have to do after a reset to factory settings, in some cameras.

Otherwise, I don't know how to interpret the problem. Are you trying to play back on the camera's screen? or on a TV ?

What mode is the camera in?

Perhaps the prompt on your screen requires that you be in a video mode.
