JA: What's the make/model of your device? How old is it?

JA: How long has this been going on? What troubleshooting have you tried?

It's possible that the battery needs to be replaced. After that amount of time, the battery may be flat, even though it hasn't been used.

You can do a reset, but you would need to get into the menu first.

: This setting is used to reset the camera to its factory defaults. With this option blinking, pressing the UP or DOWN arrow buttons will cause the camera to cycle between the two options of NO or YES. When the YES option is chosen and the ENTER button is press the camera will default all configurations made up to this point.
