    I got a GRD about 6 months ago and have been using it out and about for street photography but today i switched it on and its gone beserk !! the screen is showing up the setting hoping all over the place so i cant change any settings unless i go into the main menu. sometimes when i power it on the lens doesnt come out and it tells me no file - has anyone ever had this problem or has the camera had it ? R.I.P.:frown:

    A couple of obvious things you may not have tried.

    Remove battery for several minutes and replace.
    Try and alternative battery if you have one.
    Do a reset to factory defaults.
    Try a different SD card.

    Hope this helps and no doubt someone else may have first hand experience and chip into the discussion.

    Thanks - I took the battery out and left it out overnight. It seems to hsve helped.Its still hopping a bit but its usable . Thanks a million.

    nikki, my GRD develope the adj wheel syndrome, it worked till I even touch the wheel then it would lock up and I would have to pull the battery. It would somewhat act lie yours...

    nikki, it needs to be replaced, the wheel that is. I never sent mine in but got my GRD 3 instead. I may do so now tho.
