I thought it may be the battery but it is telling me the battery is fully charged. It doesn't seem to be saving any new vids I take either,as soon as i stop recording I get "Write Error" across the screen and it switches off..

I have a Sanyo VPC C6EX 6megapixel camcorder which, when switched on, immediately takes a photo in 'camera' mode without any prompting. After that, it will not take a photograph in normal operation. I have moved the switch between REC and PLAY and tried both camera and video modes, but neither will respond when buttons pressed.
