Sony Alpha ILCE-3500J DSLR camera will not turn ON any more.

My Sony Alpha ILCE-3500J camera recently started not turning ON intermittently but now it just won't turn ON at all.


I believe that the battery is fully charged because when I plug in the USB charging cable the orange LED comes on for about 5 seconds or so then turns off.


I have tried Sony's suggested test of turning the camera OFF, removing the battery, turn it back ON again and hold down the shutter button for at least 30 secounds. Then I turn it OFF, reinstall the battery and try turning it ON again. No response from the camera.


I have ordered another battery but I have a feeling that the problem is not the battery itself.
Does this sound like a common or familiar problem with this camera?


Thanks for any info.

Have you tried cleaning the connectors on the battery and inside the camera?

Thanks Chris.
No, I haven't yet. But I will soon. I just wanted to join some suitable forums that cover this camera and post the question given that it's Friday afternoon here.
As I said, I will try that within the next hour or so and post back here any results. :o)

You're getting responses on those other forums, it looks like.

I think your cameras needs to be fixed.

Thanks Gary but I was hoping for a bit more technical response that just "your cameras needs to be fixed".
Thanks.
