Customer Question

When i switch on my G15 the lens goes in and out, and the shutter won't operate. Is it likely to be the battery? In case it is ( and the battery must be some years old ) I have just ordered a new one.

Hi there and welcome

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

Wait 5 minutes, put the battery back in and try to turn it on and rtell me if the lens works.

It will not be batttery related though, as this brings about other symptoms.

Thank you
