Camara powers on but will not snap picture!


\015 Everything seems to work normal, powers on as normal, view pics, LCD screen is normal, but when you press the shutter button to snap the pic the camera will NOT take the picture. The ready flash red light comes on as normal but no capture of the image. Why is this? Everything else is normal but for some odd reason I can not take pictures all of a sudden.\015

My S3 IS was working perfectly until one day it powered on but simply would not snap a photo. And once it's powered on, I can't turn it off. I have to leave it on and it eventually powers down after some time. I've tried new batteries and turning it on several times without any luck. The screen powers on and I can access the menus, but it won't take a picture or zoom. Any ideas?

I also have the problem of pictures not in focus. I have made a point to lock in first by pushing halfway down before snapping the picture. It's ridiculous that a picture of an inanimate object is not in focus when I'm making a conscious effort to hold my hands steady, lock in the object and then snap, and I'm in the automatic mode. This problem seriously makes me sorry I bought this camera.

Black Screen The camara was working fine a couple days ago, but now when i turn the camara on, the lcd screen is black. I can't see anything, hence I can't take pictures. Also, when i take a picture (although screen is black and i can;t actually see what i'm shooting), the picture review shows my past photos in perfect color except for my "test shot". Any suggestions? Thanx.
