Hi, I don't have an x-5 so I can't help you but if you explain better the problem, when it happens and if you tried to do something, I am sure that someone here will help you.

My wife uses an X-5, and one annoyance to me (not to her) is that the camera will not turn on when the lens cap is mounted.

You need to give us more detail about when the problem happens and your camera settings. Are you sure that the battery is fully charged?

Same problem

I'm having the same problem. My lense cap is off, batteries are charged. I turn on my camera to use it. The on light lights up and the display lights up and then it all turns off. It turns on but won't stay on. Thanks.

Update. After some research on the web I put in a new memory card and new batteries in and it's now working. It has something to do with static charges????!!!! Which can occasionally damage the SD card. Anyway, it works now. I'm very pleased.
