So the SGCGX2PRO+ I got for my wife nearly 2 years ago crapped out in January. I don't know why. It won't start, and nothing I can do can make it start. Even inserting a pin into the Reset hole on the side, whether briefly or holding for a long 10 count before letting go, only seems to put it back where it was. I first assumed it was the card, so first I powered it off, pulled out the card, and tried starting it up without it, hoping to get the angry beeps that the card was missing. Nope, same behavior. So I removed the card, pulled everything I wanted off it, and I used SDFormatter to do a full overwrite format before re-inserting it and powering up the cam. Same behavior, no change, no matter what I do.

Any suggestions?

Here's a video of the behavior. Apologies for the door chime that came across much louder than I would've expected.

And I think I may have actually noted where it died. I can't say for sure because I didn't notice it at the time.
