Hi and welcome to JustAnswer,

Thank you for the question and your patience. Should you still need assistance for information purposes only...

Initially, bear with us; re-confirm and post back with the complete model number of the camera.

Still, general checks / proposed preliminary tries (if have not been done):

  • • check the door/cover and note if it has a tab/small extension that triggers an internal sensor /switch;
  • • try a different memory card.
