HZ30W -No Power Response-battery?
Yep, actually got charger last night & camera fired up after battery was charged. Guess it had just enough juice earlier for the power button led, but not enough to trigger the full system on. All seems good now.
Was sort of worried since seller didn't pack as carefully as I probably would have & I was afraid it might have gotten a good knock by the post office somewhere in transit. I've seen them do some amazing damage to some things...not even sure how they managed to accomplish some of it!
That behavior sounds like a dead battery to me. Good luck with the new charging cord.
