My Sony Alpha ILCE-3500J camera recently started not turning ON intermittently but now it just won't turn ON at all.

I believe that the battery is fully charged because when I plug in the USB charging cable the orange LED comes on for about 5 seconds or so then turns off.

I have tried Sony's suggested test of turning the camera OFF, removing the battery, turn it back ON again and hold down the shutter button for at least 30 secounds. Then I turn it OFF, reinstall the battery and try turning it ON again. No response from the camera.

I have ordered another battery but I have a feeling that the problem is not the battery itself.
Does this sound like a common or familiar problem with this camera?

Thanks for any info.

Hopefully it could be just the battery , if it's had it , it might not be allowing a full charge and the charger thinks it had one .
Or the charger could be at fault , thinking that the battery has been charged .
Do you know anyone , or a local shop , that has an e mount camera to try your battery in ?
And to try their battery in your camera ?
Unless it's got a fair charge in your new battery , that might not give you an answer if your charger's duff .

Another fault could be the switch on your camera might be at fault or a wire could have come loose on it , which would explain an intermittent fault before total failure .

But first need need to know you have a fully charged battery .
Also look in the battery compartment to make sure there's no instructions preventing the battery going in proper and that all contacts are clear and clean .

C & C welcome.
