Troubleshooting Guide
 
If the power is turned off while an image is being recorded to the card, 
the access lamp will remain on/continue to blink for a few seconds. 
When the image recording is completed, the power will turn off 
automatically.
 
Use a fully-charged battery pack (p.28).
 
The battery performance may have degraded. See [53: Battery info.
to check the battery’s recharge performance level (p.338). If the 
battery performance is poor, replace the battery pack with a new one.
 
The number of possible shots will decrease with any of the following 
operations:
• Pressing the shutter button halfway for a prolonged period.
• Often activating only the AF without taking a picture.
• Using the lens’ Image Stabilizer.
• Using the LCD monitor often.
• Continuing Live View shooting or movie shooting for a prolonged 
period.
 
Auto power off is in effect. If you do not want auto power off to take 
effect, set [52: Auto power off] to [Disable] (p.55).
 
Even if [52: Auto power off] is set to [Disable], the LCD monitor will 
still turn off after the camera is left idle for 30 min. (The camera’s 
power does not turn off.)
The access lamp still blinks even when the power switch is 
set to <
2>.
The battery becomes exhausted quickly.
The camera turns off by itself.
