Menu is not working in dsc w 55 sony cybershot

In DSC W55 7.2 M.pixel sony cyber shot camara, i am not able to see the menu, preview. when you press preview button it goes for shooting the photo and contineously focus light blinks and when you take a photo, a message comes saying for compactible battery use only ond gets off. The battery is fully charged even the indication shows the same thing. If i put it in the vedio mode i can accessthe settings but not in the camara. This is purchased on 2006 Sep.
Accept the display switch even the Zoom button is also taking time for long and close ups.

SOURCE: Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W55... Problem: "vibration warning" what is this?

My husband just discovered that it has to do with the flash setting. When the auto-flash and flash-on modes are on, it doesn't do it. When the "SL" mode is on - I get the Vibration Warning.
