All of the buttons on the back (menu, both zooms, etc.) are totally unusable. I can turn on the camera, take pictures and switch modes, but other than that, I can't do anything else. I've tried removing both the battery and memory card, but neither seem to fix the problem.
This solution is basically ridiculous. You are actually telling me that it is more expensive to fix my camera than it is to purchase a new one. This seems to be a regular / consistent proble with this camera; and should therefore be consider a manufacturer's defect.
I will now have to purchase a new camera but definitely a different brand

It swounds like the system battery may need replacing.
This is separate from the usual batteries that you change and charge up. look on the base of the camera to find a round disk with a groove in it. Inside is a button battery CR2032 or similar. This is the battery that controls all the setting you have set for brightness contrast number continuity etc etc. replace this noting the way it came out + up or down and i think your problem may be solved for abot $4.00
Take your memory card out and move the tiny plastic switch on it to "unlock" or whatever it says. If that doesn't help, try another card. If that still doesn't help, come back and we'll try something else!
Perhaps try resetting the camera. What is the model of your camera? If it is a Sony, then turn off your camera, take out the battery, and hold the power down for a minute. That should reset all the settings and maybe even fix the menu.
hello, these units have a very fine zoom switch and can get damaged by a drop or fine sand. the zoom switch sits under the actual button. if you turn the camera on in camera mode and the display is showing the zoom on screen display then you know it is the switch.
hi have you tried removing the battery for couple of hours so it can reset any settings that need to be set back to default it only resets camera memory not settings you have changed but this can sometimes solve the problem your having.
Also when you switch camera on and then press zoom when the camera switches off does the lense go back inside the camera as normal or does it reamin out.
when you switch in on do all the other buttons work like can you take picture and can you access all the menu if you can then take it off auto if its on auto then see if this let you use zoom if not then the chances are their is a fault on the zoom button either jammed could be that the lense motor has come out of line with zoom button, is the display clear when you go to take picture without adjusting the zoom is it still possible to take pictures
Use a card reader, in case you cannot connect the camera to the PC, and download all card contents into the PC. Use a known good card on the camera, see if there's any difference. You can also format your old card, just make sure you don't do it in a different format that will later cause you more trouble.
When the camera was stored for 6 months, did it have batteries in it?
Check for corrosion on the contacts, and try cleaning if there is any. you can use a pencil eraser, just make sure to clean all the pieces.
Hope you work it out
