- does not always turns on anymore when power put to USB
- charging LED does not light up, battery is empty.
The camera ONLY starts up ONCE when connected to USB, battery is plugged in, and sometimes I even HAVE TO press the power ON button, when it does not turn on by itself.
Second time (after pull & plug USB power) it does not turn on.
Third time (after pulling out battery and plugging battery back in) it does start again when power is put to USB.
I can not use it this way, something is wrong. Charging cicuitry maybe defective? Or what is going on??
Note: I have soldered new wires/connector to the battery, also tried with capacitors (which worked fine before), and ordered new batteries just to be sure it's not that. They yet have to arrive.
As far as I can see the camera ONLY turns on AFTER pulling/repluggin battery/capacitor, and the charging led never lights up.
Besides, it NEVER starts up without battery / cap connected, it used to do that before perfectly as well.
