Hi.

I have just received my "new" Bauer C900XL, but can't get it running. I have tried three sets of fresh batteries, but the camera just won't run. When I switch on the power, the only thing I can see is an uneven flickering of the missing daylight filter warning lamp. The green battery indicator LED that should light up in the viewfinder (according to the manual) does not appear, and none of the controls work.

Any ideas to what the problem could be? I'm really quite desperate as I'm supposed to do some tests with the camera later today...

Interesting development. I opened up the camera and tried to record, and suddenly it worked. Sluggishly at first, but now it purrs like a kitten. Almost like an old car that needs to warm up. Strange :P

Yeah, and now the problem is back, except this time I am unable to fix it... Very frustrating.
