When I turn the camera on, the canon logo appears on the display and the red light in back above the menu button keeps blinking, but nothing happens. When I turn it on in the "taking pictures" mode or "view pictures" mode, it just hangs and acts like it has trouble reading the CF card. I've tried multiple cards and had the same problem, so I think it's the camera and not the cards. Any ideas?

Just bought my used camera from Salvation Army. I know I shouldn't expect it to work, but it does in a way. I'd like to know why when I turn the camera on, the ready light flashes a few times (7, maybe), but does nothing else. I can't hear inside the camera to see if anything else is trying to function. I hooked the camera up to the computer, and nothing happened. Not sure if this is because I didn't install the CD needed.
