SonySLT-A65V Cameraworked fine one day and then it would not turn on. Theonly thing it does is 3 red slow flashes followed by 6 red fast flashes, thenrepeats.Makesno noises and nothing on LCD screen.  Only flashing light sequence. Normalnature shooting at temperature about 70 degrees.  Normal to average
humidity.Noerror messages. No recent changes.  No recent firmware updates. Triednew batteries... still would not turn on.   Only red light flashing.

Try this:
1. Turn the camera off.
2. Remove the battery.
3. Turn the camera on. (Yes, while the battery is out.)
4. Hold down the shutter button for 60 seconds.
5. Turn the camera off.
6. Insert the battery.
7. Turn the camera on.

Thank you for your reply.

I have tried that procedure, but it did not work.
I even took camera apart and replaced the very small button cell battery too.
Its a Panasonic ML-621S/ZTN for everyones information....
That did not work either.

Thanks again.
