Are you saying it will not take a photo? Try replacing/recharging the battery and take a photo of your self, and see if the lens moves freely and the shutter also moves. If that fails it may be a sensor problem (which would be bad news!)

Blank screen

Try this...if you can still get into the setup menu, scroll to "reset" and follow the on-screen instructions. If not, remove the memory card and all the buttons...leave the camera alone for 20 minutes...insert the card and then the battery...turn it on. Did that help?

Nothing shows on viewing screen

I had something like this occur with a minot mini video camera only it locked up in the "On" setting, meaning I could see a display on the screen but could not turn it off. I suggest you look very closely for a reset hole at the bottom somewhere, a place where a safety pin or the straightened end of a paper clip could be inserted. If no Reset can be found, then try holding in the Power On/Off for as long as 90 seconds. This may clear the problem. I would also suspect no power due to low charge or no charge on the battery, battery installed incorrectly, or battery not charged up.

I was finally able to fix it. It did take me a little longer than the 10 minutes as another as written:) I had trouble getting 2 of the little screws out, but finally succeeded. Then I saw the orange ribbon, but nothing seemed to be loose. At last I saw where it connected at the TOP, and pushed down the little black connectors which showed on both sides under the orange ribbon. I pushed it down as far as I could, put the back on the camera and turned it on! And it worked! Thanks so much for the tip. I am going to keep a little screw driver in the camera case along with the tip how to fix it in case it is a problem again!
