Instead the screen stays black, and then the battery starts to get really warm. then i cant turn it on or off, the only way to get the batter to stop heating up, is to take it out of the camera. i can put the battery back in, turn it on again, but it will say no pictures had been taken, and the problem continues every time i try and use it.

Blurry lenses Same problem exactly. I'm not sure what happened (maybe sand in the camera?) The camera now turns off to a black screen, If I push the botton to see ast pictures, the screen works again and lets me see through them.
