Sometimes with these newer cameras that are coming out now the memory card is very important on which brand you use and what the manufacturer recommends . This causes the camera to act weird turn on then off or show blank screens and the shutter to stay extended or so on. It may or may not be the fix but try that in mine i had too much SD gig it did not support and then when i checked manufacturers recommendations they said up to 8 gig and "their brand" and that they never tested off brands to work or not! I hoped that helped.

It went into the shop and Ritz Camera said they fixed it - but they didn't. It worked one hour and did the same thing. I loaded a firmware update on it
