When I power up my Nikon D5000 it shuts off after about 10

Customer Question

When I power up my Nikon D5000 it shuts off after about 10 seconds. Also the shutter doesn't do anything. If I power up and use the menu the power stays on until I finish. Any thoughts?

Have you reset the camera?
If you power the camera on withe the memory card removed, does it stay on?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
The memory card makes no difference. Do you mean resetting by pushing the two buttons but the on/off button?
Expert:  Russell A. replied 2 years ago.
Yes, I am refering to the INFO and the I buttons together.
