I have had my camera about a year with no problems. I took pictures the other day and all was well. I left it on the dock charger and when I next tried to turn it on, it turned on for a few seconds, buzzed a couple of times and shut off. I can view the pictures, but when I try to turn it on to take pictures, it buzzes and shuts itself off.

A CCD problem would explain the
lines on your pictures and the lines on the LCD (since the CCD is used
to feed the live image). CCD (Charge Coupled Device) is one of the two main types of image sensors used
in digital cameras.
When a picture is taken, the CCD is struck by light
coming through the camera's lens. Each of the thousands or millions of
tiny pixels that make up the CCD convert this light into electrons. The
number of electrons, usually described as the pixel's accumulated
charge, is measured, then converted to a digital value. This last step
occurs outside the CCD, in a camera component called an
symptoms of a defective CCD
include distorted images or abnormal colors, scratchy purple lines,
blank or black pictures, and/or black videos with good sound being
recorded on the camera's flash card. In order to correct this issue, the repair facility needs to replace the CCD. This is not something you may do on your own; check this article for additional details: Bad CCDs. This, isn't a good new, but hope helps to solve it.
Hope this helps; also keep in mind that your feedback is important and I'll appreciate

not sure - but seems like you have a power on issue, so try to check into the battery bay and see if there's any dirty stuff or leak from battery or just make sure the contact is clear.
Using a meter to double check to know that the batteries are BOTH charged is advised. The Buzzing noise seem to indicate the motor is having problem extending the lens or the motor's gear is stripping hence making the noise?
i had the same problem a while back. I fooled around with my camera lens a bit and it turned out that one side of the lens was sticking out a bit. I pressed down on this and pushed the power button and it worked. The next time I turned it on the same thing happened but if you keep doing the same thing it should work.
Have had this problem too. Took it to camera shop who referred me to repairer (email email@example.com) located north of Brisbane. Fixed the lens by refurbishment of lens. Cost was reasonable & tiem about 14 days. I was very happy.
sorry to hear you are having this issue. well the problem is your lens.
the internal shutters have locked up and are stuck shut the lens needs
replacement. repair run any where from 75.00 and up in most cases.i repair these all of the time.let me know if i can help out any further.
I had the same problem until just a while ago, when I realized that the lens was tweaked. It was stuck. So I turned the camera on and gave the inside part a yank before it turned off again. It took me a couple of tries but eventually the lens corrected itself and now my camera works fine. If you do it a couple of times and then start to hear three rapid beeps (sounds like 'be-du-dum') before the other three beeps (beep... beep... beep) then your getting somewhere. Hope this helps.
It seems the camera has a lens problem. Probably one of the lens gear is broken or defective. When you try to shoot the lens moves to focus and jams in the middle of the focus so shutter will not release becasue it is not focused yet. There are couple of gears in the gear chain of the lens and it is plastic. the volume of pictures you took might have caused one of the gear to wear down. The solution is to rebuild or replace lens assy. and the cost may be around $100 in US.
