Answers :

Try to hook up the camera to a power surge if you have an adapter so that when you turn it on you can navigate on the settings and camera wont shut off, check on the settings if there are other mode aside from Green mode and select it, chances if there is no other setting, you are having an issue with your camera, hardware issue. call manufacturer's support line for warranty verification. best i got. thanks for using fixya!
