Hello Everyone,

I recently dropped the w-1 on the ground while it was on. So the lens hit the floor first. After I picked it up seems like the camera still work, it could upload and play on the LCD screen. But there is a blinkingicon on the LCD , after its been dropped. Can somebody help me reset that ?

I tried to press that reset switch on the bottom, but the icon still shows. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks !!

Blinking icon? What is the icon? Does it say "Turn the power off and on again"?

Page 108 in the manual states:

"Cause: A camera malfunction that you cannot reverse has occured."

"Countermeasure: Press the RESET button (page 96) located on the bottom of the camera, then turn the power on again."

obviously you've already done that. I say the camera is gone.
