Having problems with your Konica Minolta DiMAGE G500 Digital Camera ?

Controls don't function

\015 A friend gave me this camera--said it was working before mailing it to me.\015\012No visible damage to case.\015\012\015\012When the lens cover is opened, the lens extends, a tone is sounded and the viewing screen displays the date/time menu. Beyond that, nothing happens. \015\012\015\012No control buttons will function except the toggle control that selects month, day, year, hour, etc. \015\012\015\012Any clues? I'm ready to take out the jeweler's screwdriver and start exploring.\015\012\015\012Thank you very much.\015\012\015\012Kim Moore\015

Went on a 3-week trip with my SX120is and it performed flawlessly. Downloaded all pictures upon returning. Hadn't used camera for a couple of weeks when yesterday the screen started displaying a very low resolution frozen picture and the camera stoped responding to all the controls. After about 10 seconds, the camera turned off without retracting the lens. This problem keeps repeating, but not the exact same way every time.
