Not much experience dealing with 2nd hand cameras, but my suggestions would be:

1. Visual inspection to see for mold/fungus and whatever scratches.
2. Take pictures and see if it is to your expected quality. Best if you could download to a PC and see it full size.
3. Operations, get hold a copy of the manual and famliarise yourself with the different modes and controls and make sure they work expectedly.

2)Bring a laptop along to test
3)Download the manual online and print out a copy to familiarize yourself beforehand.
