\015 Hello,\015\012WHen we turn our camera on, there is no view field. You can not see out of the camera and the flash automatically pops up because there is not enough light. our guess is that the shutter is not opening. \015\012It was working fine, nothing dropped, etc. we just changed batteries.\015\012We can view pictures already taken, but can not take new ones - the result is a black screen/photo.\015\012Please help?\015
