Protax DC500T Digital Camera lens won't open

\015 Hi, I was taking pictures with the above camera I have recently bought. It took about 16 then the LCD screen went blank and I when I took a photo the image came up black. The lens is closed. I tried turning the camera on and off, the camera worked but the LCD screen was still black, only when in still image mode. I looked through the user manual and cannot find anything to fix this problem. Can you help me to fix it or does it need repairing? Thanks\015

Lee
