hi has anyone ever had a problem with turning on the camera & nothing happens? or the camera seems to have a mind of its own where it will not trigger the shutter when u press the button? is there any software update 4 this camera? it sometimes does weird stuff

Standard advice is to make sure the batteries are fully charged, make sure the contacts are clean on both batteries and camera. As for not tirggers the shutter, tht's normal if the camera cannot achieve focus lock. No, there are no firmware updates, but I doubt any of te problems you are describing are software-related.

Ditto what Marc said!

Good batteries and focus lock mode engaged are 99% of the solutions.

You can turn off focus lock in the menu but you'll eventually discover it's not a good idea.
