My Theta Z1 is flashing error and wont turn on.

I am able to access the cameras storage. if i plug it in but if i try to turn it on , it takes longer than normal and then a error message with a couples beeps will appear then the camera will shut off. if anyone has experienced this please help.

Please list:

  • camera firmware
  • whether you are plugging it into a Mac or Windows USB port
  • whether you are using the original cable that came with the camera
  • whether you have a USB adapter connected to a Mac
  • does anything show on the OLED screen of the camera

It sounds like the battery is completely drained. Change the USB cable a few times and leave it plugged in for a few hours each time.

If the battery is completely drained, it will not boot even if it is plugged in.
