Has stopped taking pictures. It will focus and act like it is ready to shoot, but with or without the flash, does not photograph. Everything else seems to be working fine, screen, modes, power, zoom... just won't shoot.

Images I seem to get yellowish images and images that are really dark even when I put the flash on. The flash seems weak, almost defected. But then in the next series of shots it will work and the picture will come out just fine. All of this in the same setting with the same subject and everything else a constant too.

My HP CA340 10.0 megapixels with 3x optical zoom lens only shows a white screen when I turn it on. I can still take pictures with great quality as I could before, I just can't see what I'm doing.
