If the camera hasn't recently been dropped, your problem may be due to corrosion on the battery contacts inside the camera which can prevent the full power of the batteries from flowing into the camera. Try this free fix before you do anything else: remove the batteries and wipe the camera contacts firmly with a dry cloth (heavy corrosion may require cleaning with a wire brush, steel wool, or sandpaper). Remove any residue that may have fallen into the battery compartment during cleaning, then wipe both ends of the batteries and place them back in the camera. This cleaning clears the problem about 90% of the time. If it doesn't work for you, the camera may have a problem that requires professional repair.

A stuck shutter is another common failure mode for digital cameras. The symptoms of a stuck or "sticky" shutter are very similar to CCD image sensor failure. The camera may take black pictures (for shutter stuck closed), or the pictures may be very bright and overexposed, sometimes with lines, especially when taken outdoors (for shutter stuck open). To confirm a stuck shutter, put the camera in any mode other than "Auto", and turn the flash OFF (you don't want to blind yourself for the next step). Next look down the lens and take a picture. You should see a tiny flicker in the center of the lens as the shutter opens and closes. If no movement is seen, then you likely have a stuck shutter. If so, please see this link for further info and a simple fix that may help.

You have images on the Card- Yes? The flash works -Yes? Now you cannot take pic's is that what you mean. One of many thing- are you getting error messages? Are you sure you are getting images to the card? There may be images on the card but the screen has gone down- If you hold the camera at a slight angle can you see dim images[if yes screen back light down] If No images a connector or CCD problem. Make sure you have fresh batteries Gently squeeze the casing near the bottom of the screen- it may be a loose connector. Depending on how long you have had this -get onto the Seller or Manufacturer's web site tech support- there may be a replacement available. There will almost certainly be no repair option on this type of camera
