Ok, I give up. Just got this; how do you turn it on? I press the on/off switch and rotate it. I get this message:

The kit lens is attached, and memory card in. I can go to menus and set stuff, but can't take a picture. What does that solid rectangle mean?


Your lens is retracted. The solid triangle shows the direction to slide the lock on the lens in so that you can turn the zoom ring past 15 to get it into the position to take photos.

This is the 15-45 kit lens. I don't think it retracts. There is a switch on the lens body - I thought that was for stabilization. If I push that forward with my other hand, I get the same message.
