I haven't even had my camera a year, about 8 months, used very often, never had any problems with it. Now when I take a pic it has a square with an arrow at the top of it pop up in the right hand corner and if I press anything it says wait until finished recording and it is taking several minutes and then finally I can shut it off and it has lost the pic I just took. If i don't touch anything and let it sit there it will save the photo but it is taking 4 or 5 minutes. I already recharged the battery, that didn't make a difference. I hope I still have the receipt so I can return it, but I am not sure I can find it.

Re: delay in recording pic
Check the menu settings for the size of the picture you are saving. How many megs per image. Big picture means slower recording. Unless you do some serious, high-quality photo printing, you don't need super high resolution images.

If you haven't used it for the last 8 months and before it was all fine then the most common reason would be the battery. Your battery is absolutely dead but then again if you plug it to AC then it must show some sign of life. But give it a go by replacing new battery. To check get it from a friend and then test the camera on it.
If the battery replacement doesn't work then take it to an authorized dealer for inspection.
You haven't given us much to work with. Unless you've deleted the pictures on purpose or formatted the card, your pics are still there. You could get a card reader and use it to download your pics to a computer. You could also take the card to a store like Walmart and use one of their picture kiosk machines to either print the pics or even make a cd copy of them.
Sony replaced the flexible board cables (FP-621 and FP-610) on my uncles camera. About 8 months after the repair the camera screen doesn't always turn on. I can get it ti turn on if the lcd is rotated towards the person being recorded. I think it might be a problem with a switch on one of those flexible cables.
My Sanyo Xacti VPC 60 has problem in battery. After taking 2 -4 pics the camera is OFF.
Right from the day of purchase we are facing this problem since last 1 Year.
3 Years warranty is of no use & Sanyo service is horrible i.e still for the last one month its lying with them with no solution.

If you're recording to an audio program on your computer (e.g., Cubase), there typically is a slight delay in the tracks you record with the first one (such as a slight delay in the vocal when layering over the guitar track). ou can change the delay in the "Preferences" for the audio card in your computer or you can remove the delay manually.. I do the latter. I record using the Audacity 1.3.3. program on a Mac G4. I find that get a 0.3 second delay in tracks layered onto the first track. So, after I record a track, I cut the first 0.3 seconds froom the beginning of the track (I give myself at least 10 seconds of "dead air" at the start. and keep playing the tracks until they're synchronized. Takes a good ear, but really is the best way to synchronize the tracks.
I had the same problem until a friend of mine told me to use Energizer LITHIUM batteries instead (Silver and blue packaging).
I will warn you ahead they are expensive (1 pack of 2 goes for about & $ 8:00 to $9.00 but they last quite a while (and I use my camera every day practically) they last me about 3 to 4 months. using anything other than the Lithium batteries is a waste of money ...believe me, I've learned my lesson by trying every "super" alkaline battery only to quit on me after 1 hrs use!
Please get a Hi 8 cleaning cassette and run it in the camera for a few seconds. you may have to do this several times for the head to be completely cleaned unfortunately for Hi8 you will not hear the sound when there is no picture on playback.
