I have two of these cameras and they both seem to have the same problem. The power on the camera will not turn on unless the grip is in the down position. The issue with this is it does not allow using the camera on a tripod, but only hand held. Is this a common issue with these cameras and can it be an easy fix? Or is this actually a normal function of the camera? If so- how does using a tripod work?

The switch needs to be on the "T" position when the grip is folded. "T" for tripod I guess.
