A71 will not setup

so I found the camera on the ground (strap broke) fixed strap, replaced battery and a new SD card. Green status light comes on when switch is turned to setup but nothing is on screen. Tried it with SD card inserted and with it taken out. No difference.


  • If it was on the ground there's a chance it's had some water ingress that could be fitzing with the electronics. I'd bring it in and let it get nice and settled, and if it still doesn't work give a call to customer service and see what they can do for you.

    But please be careful. If there IS water damage it could cause a short. They have redundancies and other safeguards built in to prevent any damage from such a thing, but best to use caution around any electronics that could have been exposed to water.
