Having problems with your Sony Cyber-shot DSC-S730 Digital Camera ?

After inserting memory stick, a blank screen comes up

\015 I have a Sony dsc-s730 and I got a format trouble with the memory stick last week. The memory stick has hardly been used and at the time I got the problem, the memory stick was empty. I proceeded to reformat the memory stick but it got stuck and I switched off the camera to see if it would work. However, since then my camera shows a blank screen and a red light on the side panel when the memory card in inserted. It also refuses to switch off or perform any other function. I tried the same memory stick on other friend's sony camera and it worked fine. I also reformatted it on the other camera but it still doesn't work. Please help!\015

I took a bunch of pictures and went to put them on my computer, when I inserted the memory stick into the computer it only showed half the pictures on the memory stick, so I put it back in my IR 500 and the pictures were still there, but then suddenly my camera went blank and when I turned it back on my pictures were all gone and when I put the memory stick into my computer it's now showing a bunch of random folders that won't open..These pictures are irreplaceable, please help me figure out how

Hi. Last time I went to used my camera the screen showed a message saying the memory card was damaged. When I tok it out I saw that it was slightly damaged on the bottom strip.

Lens stuck out No display No link to computer but will charge battery. Only way to power off is remove battery. Numerous key holds when power on result in no change. View lott's on FixYa. Try gentle but firm exercise of barrel, left right with success when some inward movement felt. Insert battery, power on, screen display yes, take picture yes [onboard memory as no SD installed for tests]. Will update if problem comes back. Gentle but firm is the key, good luck.
