Default Dead Pv-sd4090



Haven't used the cam in a year, was working fine.
I turn on the cam (with a fully charged bat or a new bat), the power and rec lights quickly flash on and off once each, as I trun the on/off/review/rec/play selector knob.

If I hold down the shutter button the green power led lights, as long as it's held down.

Nothing else happens, no lens movement, no LCD ..No nutt'in..

The internal soldered bat is at 1.5 volts and I can't find any other obvious defects.

Anyone Have a clue????

Thanks,
Perplexed PitaNH

Most of these types of issues turn out to be battery problems. Does that camera offer any way to power it via an external power source (like an AC adapter)? Depending on how much the batteries cost, you may want to just pick up a new battery, charge it, and try it.

Sorry -- the way you phrased it, you seemed to be interchanging the word "new" with "recharged". I thought you might be a newbie who was thinking along the lines that a recharged battery is a "new" battery.

Hope you figure you out! Sorry it wasn't something simple.
