Customer Question

While trying to reset the date and time I have pressed some wrong buttons. At first the S8600 camera would turn on, and in half a second, later turn itself off again. now the indicator light blinks when I click the on button, but there is no other response.
Batteries are full. Camera has not been dropped, or got wet.

Hi there and welcome

There is nothing you can press to stop it turning on, so its something else that has occurred,

Remove the batteries and hold the shutter button down for 60 seconds then release.

Then wait 5 minutes, put the batteries in and tell me if it now starts please.
