Try another memory card. It can be that the memory card stopped working. Also check if the tab on the card is not in the locked position.
Once you checked this, then I will conclude it is the camera. Are you able to insert the card so that it stays in without it trying to pop out? Maybe that one of the pins in the card reader is bent. This prevents the camera from recognizing the card.

Look in your owners manual and there should be a part section that gives the part numbers. After finding the part you can do a internet search on that part number, and it should bring it up.

If the lens makes griding sound when trying to extend, the lens probably does not extend or retract because of debris or a misaligned gear box. The
lens can in about 50% of the cases be repaired without having to replace it. Try to
return to manufacturer first. If you're out of warranty, there are
third party place that fix them such as camera lens repairs. If you want to do it yourself, there are also free camera repair guide websites that show you how to replace the lens, the replacement part is usually available on ebay.
