I put in the batteries, and close it tight and then I push the button. The light flashes, and continues to flash. It's in play mode, yet there's no blue screen, as well as whenever I push any other button, nothing happens. The only thing that seems to work is the power button. What's going on and how can I get it to work?

Is the battery door maybe not closing tightly, causing the metal area that touches the tips of the batteries to not be in close enough contact with them? This happened with my camera due to a cracked battery door, and until I can afford to replace it, I've put a rubberband around my camera over the little door to hold the batteries in tightly! Surprisingly, this is working for me! I know it's not an optimal fix, but thought I'd offer the suggestion. (You didn't say what make/model your camera is.)
Enilra, sounds to me like you might have the button that takes the photo stuck in the down position. Without turning on the power, put you finger on the button and press down on it while you move wiggle your finger around. Get a good look at the button and see if You Can See If The Button is returning to the UP Position. Withour seeing your camera in person this would be my guess.
Turn off the camera and remove the batteries. Then try to close the flash by pushing it down lightly. If it still won't remain closed, your camera is faulty and you should bring it back for a repair/replace.
Hope this helps,
Try changing to rechargable batteries. I had exactly the same problem. I used recharable they run out so tried various types of alkaline batteries but the camera would not turn on. Getting the flashing green light. Charged the batteries put them back in and working again
The flash on D series doesn't always open by itself or when you push the button, as part of the design. If you are in manual mode the flash should open when you push the button, but when in Auto, if there is enough light present for the flash to stay closed, even if you push the flash button, I don't think it will open.
In Auto mode, try pointing the camera at something dark or holding your hand up in front of it and push the shutter button halfway down to see if the flash opens. If not, you will probably have to take it in to be repaired.
I was having the same problem... I put the camera in the cradle with it plugged into usb and then pushed play mode... the camera went to play mode and then i pushed and held the camera mode button while i was removing it from the cradle... it ended up turning on!!! i have no clue.. very weird
