Answers :

Hey, I have the same problem. Try turning the power on and while the lense is focusing out apply some resistance with your other hand. Normally the lense will retreat and you will have to power up again. The problem seems to be associated with the opening and closing lense. You may have to repeat this fix each time you power up but it eventually seems to cure itself. I have taken dozens of pictures since I figured out this fix.
Turn off the camera. Take out the memory card. Wait 20 - 30 seconds and put in fresh batteries. Then try it. It worked on mine.

When i turn my camera on, it seems fine, all buttons functional. When i take a photo, it flashes, but no photo will pop up in my screen.

AF problem Last week I took some pics that needed the flash turned off. I did that and took the pics with no problem. I turned the flash setting back to "auto" afterwards. (this may not be related to the current problem but does seem too much of a coincidence). Next time I went to use the camera, I got an AF(red dot) and a red hand on the screen. It would take one picture and then would be frozen (no zoom, no picture taking, but the screen would stay on). If I turn it back on I can then ta
