I've used this camera for five years without a hitch. Went to take some shots for a magazine article, composed and focused on the LCD screen normally, but after exposure, the still picture is totally white with thin horizontal black bands and a very faint image of the subject in the background.
Video clips record and playback normal. Didn't drop it. System reset. Still no go on still photos.

The DC-T50 only takes regular SD cards up to 512 MB in space. Most cards that are sold now are SDHC, which are NOT compatible. If you can find a 512MB SD card, it should be extremely cheap.
Well, you could have a look at , but unless you can get this camera fixed very cheaply or under a very generous 3-year Gateway warranty (which Gateway is not known for), I'd say it's best to cut your losses and go with plan A, getting a replacement. Gateway is about to be sold to Acer, so it's currently at loose ends anyway, and they're notorious for their poor support at the best of times. Digital cameras have come a long way in the past couple of years--I just got a new HP M537 with free 1GB memory card at Staples for $110 that my wife loves. But even if you fixed the Gateway for free you'd have an old unreliable camera waiting for something else to break and guaranteeing lots more missed pictures (BTW, you can get a working DC-T50 on eBay for about 20 bucks). The time to get it fixed was the day after it first malfunctioned.
Enjoy your new camera!
