I am new to mathematica,

p(n)=( e^(∧Q(r-n)))/2 * (1- e^(-∧Q))

I am tryin to calculate Sum[p(n)* log[2, p(n)], {n,1,Infinity}]

I just keep getting no interpretations available
The exact input I have was
sum[1/2* e^(Q *\[CapitalLambda] *( \[CurlyCapitalUpsilon]-n)) * (1 - \
e^(-Q *\[CapitalLambda])) * log[2, 1/2* e^(Q *\[CapitalLambda] *( \
\[CurlyCapitalUpsilon]-n)) * (1 - e^(-Q *\[CapitalLambda])) ] , {n, \
1, Infinity} ]

I am not sure if this is a right way or not
