    i got the sanyo vpc-503 as a gift, it worked amazingly! then one day i couldnt take any pictures. the screen would come up just fine, i could see through the lens but now matter how many times i pressed the button to take a picture, it wouldnt do anything.

Throw it out. I have the same problem, they say to take it in to be fixed. It's cheaper to buy a better camera than to fix this one.

Take batteries out and clean the base of the battery compartment with a pencil eraser do the same with the battery compartment cover contact's now try. If that fail hold the battery compartment tight then turn on. If it comes on then - open the compartment and lay a piece of foil across the batteries and close the lid. does it work? No to bad it dies but you should have a warranty- do you have other proof of purchase?
