Having problems with your GE A730 Digital Camera ?

My Ge A730 digital camera is acting weird. The instructions say to put the camera in USB mode to upload pics to my PC. Not only does my computer not detect the camera, but now, when I unplug the USB cord, the camera screen goes BLACK, and only displays the regular images I normally see when the USB cord is plugged in.
