:) Ricoh has kindly asked me to send my beloved GRD in to check out my problem. I hope it will be an easy fix.
Ouch, my dear GR-D1 is not happy. The usual 'camera crashes on the adjust button' problem.
This time I am able to replicate it each time, but unfortunatly I don't know how to fix it.
Ricoh GRD1 camera : Model TQ14104768
- Latest GRD1 firmware
- Factory reset
- Erased internal memory
- No SD card present
I power on the camera
I press the adjust button
The frame rate will slow down to around 15fps
All buttons on the camera will be unresponsive. If left alone it will remain in the vegetable state.
I press the power button and after around 10 seconds the screen will power off leaving the lens totally out.
I press the power button again. This time it takes 9 seconds to initizlise the camera and ready to take a shot.
I press the adjust button and here we go again, the same thing.
I think the camera has decided to die on me. Well not exactly die because all the menu functions can be accessed via the menu so the damage is only that my [ADJ] is inoperable. This is all the more saddening because the camera is only just out of warranty :(
If anyone has any ideas what I can do?
I have put a video here : http://dl.getdropbox.com/u/244826/R1049811.AVI
Ok, thought maybe my firmware was bad so rolled back to firmware : Firmware rel 1.08
Same problem .... *cry*
update : Tried master reset but alas still the same problem.
update : Based on Christian's suggestion that I should wait before pressing the [ADJ] button rather than pressing it after boot up didn't really work. Actually it's getting worse by the day. Instead of freezing now, the camera just powers off with the lens out.
