    I have had this happen a couple of times now. There have been a few times now that when I turn on the camera with the power button the screen stays black. Nothing happens.

    Is there a specific order for startup that I am missing? Should I worry?

    I can fix it by power back down the camera, locking the lens and starting over.

    a similar thing happened to me on my previous sample. returned it for a different one. Here is how i could repeat it :

    set it up in continuous shoot mode (where u can take many pics with one shutter press)
    snap away... if buffer is full, wait up and repeat

    very soon (1-3 bursts), it would stop... go blank.... and sometimes shutdown.

    my new sample is great though (touchwood).
