However, in a Sony consumer forum I found tales very similar to mine, and to what Helen reports. I think that both the external AND the internal batteries are flat on delivery. But one guy got fed up with having to constantly set the date, together with it refusing to take pix, so next time, he though, to h* with this and just pressed the shutter button. Behold, date screen gone, pic taken. Then he set the date via the menu option, and all was well. And I can report exactly the same here.

Thanks to those who advised! A pity DPR doesn't have sticky threads, for the edification of future 5N purchasers when they can't take a pic.

First post from a lurker. Many thanks for this information, I was having the same issues with my newly purchased 5n. I assumed it was my old 2gb pro duo card at first but I followed your information about pressing the shutter button an now everything seems to work.
