The device won't power on
You are hitting the power button on the device, but it is not turning on.
If the device is not powering on, the battery may be dead. To fix a dead battery, remove it and try charging it. If after you replace the battery the camera still will not turn on, the battery may be broken or faulty.
If your battery is full and will not turn on, or will not charge at all, you'll need to replace the battery with a new one.
Disconnected power button
If you have replaced the battery and the device is still not powering on, the power button may be disconnected from the motherboard. If this is the case you will need to disassemble the device to reconnect the power button to the motherboard.
If your device is still not turning on, your motherboard may have failed. To fix this problem, you will need to replace the motherboard.
The device is not processing or storing pictures
You are pressing the shutter button to take photos, but the camera isn't taking or displaying photos.
Full SD memory card
If your camera is not storing pictures and a message is popping up on your camera screen saying that you have no memory space left, you need to buy a new memory card. To replace the memory card, take out the old memory card, and put in the new one.
Missing SD memory card
If your camera is not storing or taking photos, your device could be missing memory card. Check the memory card slot in your camera and insert an empty card to store pictures on.
Disconnected ribbon cable
If your camera is not storing photos, the ribbon cables that look like film inside the camera that connect everything to the motherboard may be disconnected. You will need to disassemble the camera to reconnect the ribbon cables to the motherboard.
If the ribbon cables are all properly placed on the motherboard but the camera is still not storing pictures, the motherboard may be faulty. Refer to the motherboard replacement guide to replace it.
The screen isn't displaying photos
You are taking photos, but the LCD screen is not displaying them.
If the screen is cracked or visibly broken into more than once piece, then you will need to replace the screen in order to properly display photos again.
Disconnected from motherboard
If the screen is in good physical shape and is still not displaying photos, it is likely because there is a disconnect between the camera's computer and the screen. In this case, you will need to disassemble the camera to reconnect the screen's ribbon cables to the motherboard.
If the screen is still not displaying pictures then your motherboard may have failed. If this is the case, you will need to replace the motherboard to fix the problem.
