Power problem - Help!!

Hi everyone,

I have an E500 which was working perfectly earlier today then suddenly refused to turn on.

I have checked and changed batteries, lenses etc but it stubbornly refuses to illuminate a single led, error message, anything.

Anyone had a similar problem or know roughly how much a repair would be?

Re: Power problem - Help!!

Tried to replicate the fault using camera functions, with not much success. Only two things I could suggest. Is it just the LED screen which does not work? If so try pressing the 'Info' button.
The other thing is power. Are the camera and battery contacts clean and undamaged?
