That camera takes lithium batteries. Duracell are DL123. Others are Energizer CR123 or Rayovac CR123A. The 123 is the key here.

First reaction, when your camera acts strange, is to switch it off. Then when the memory access light stops burning, or flashing, you can remove the battery (Batteries) Give it a few seconds, and then reinsert the battery. Now the camera will start from scratch. So if the problem was caused by a software problem, it should be solved.

way to do this is to place the camera lens down on a hard surface and
then power it up. Be sure to use a soft cloth or something similar as to
not scratch your lens or casing. Let the lens push the camera up and
down a few times and sometimes the little resistance provided by the
camera is enough to get things going again.

Other than that , I would take the camera to a repair
center for a evaluation to see if it would cost more to repair than to
replace the camera.
If it is still under warranty I would suggest
you take it in before trying any of these steps and remove any
off-brand batteries or accessories as some stores are really fussy about
warranty repairs on camera's with non-brand accessories.
