Maybe you can try sensor cleaning mode;
Go to Menu>Set-up>Sensor cleaning, press right than choose "Mirror Up", wait a moment than power off the camera. Maybe this can help.

First check the batteries (are they fully charged, are they inserted correctly). Next connect the camera to an AC adapter (if available). Try to turn the camera back on. If it works, then try different batteries. If the camera is still not working, after checking the trouble shooting section in your camera manual, call the camera manufacturers support desk.

Shoots blank (dark) pictures after switching on.

This is a known design defect in the cameras and Sony is repairing them, even if your warranty is expired.

see this for Konica Minolta's official statement:

it'll direct you to a sony page where you can sign up to get your camera repaired!

Olympus mju 410- Orange lamp flashing

I had this happen and fixed it by removing the battery and leaving it out overnight and making sure it was fully charged - the next day battery inserted and it was ok. Prior to inserting battery I opened shutter cover and help down shutter release to try to drain any residual power. - Worth a try.

No pictures recorded/black screen

it seems that shutter blades are stucked and are not working. when you say shutter is fully open i think you are talking about the lense cover, not the internal shutter assembly. the red light is the indication of OUT OF FOCUS SUBJECT OR FLASH NOT READY. if the shutter blades aare not open the camera would not be able to do the focusing and will flash the red light thus you would not get any image. contact the repairer.
