I was using my camera then I turned it off and set it down only to pick it up a couple moments later. I turned it on but for some reason the screen was blank no matter what I do. I have charged the battery and stuff but it wont work. The light by the screen blinks red once when i turn it on and green a few times when i turn it off. The camera makes noises like normal. Why the sudden camera mood-swing? How do I fix it? [english please :)]

Go to the hardware store or even Walmart and pick up a couple of clip-on reflectors that use a standard-base light bulb. Purchase two "daylight" compact-fluorescent bulbs. Clip the units to some kind of stands and point the light on either side of your subject at 45-degree angles. Turn off the flash on your camera. Try to use a tripod if you have one. Your results will be spectacular!
There is BATTERY LITHIUM SECONDARY (installed on MS-259 Flexible Board) requires replacement. It requires to apart camera and little solder work, qualified camera tech job. If you are willing to repair it yourself, let me know to help you out.
I have the same problem - 4 fast beeps and it turns off. My guess is that the lubricants are getting old and sticky - I had a Canon SLR that developed the same problem after being in the extreme cold. Here's a couple of things to try:
You can still access the picture review features by holding down the review button while you turn it on (note that if you hold down the trash button you'll see the firmware version.)
What doesn't work: Resetting the camera from the setting menu; replacing the battery, replacing the SD card, cursing.
I've been able to consistently get it to function normally by hitting the camera into the palm of my hand on the left side (with the viewing screen facing you), just after turning on the camera. If this doesn't work, keep hitting harder until it works. Once on, the camera works normally.
Remove the Software Restert the Computer Plug camera in and turn on set it to the upload mode. Windows will then fid it via the Camera/Scanner Wizard. If there is still a problem A cheap card reader will do the trick
There is a problem inside the camera with the wire harness/cable connection to the screen. They are know to come loose over time. If you tap rather briskly on the front of the camera right on the word Cybershot it should reconnect it. Worked on mine but you may need to do it now & again. The altenative is to have the camera dismantled and the connector pushed back onto the screen.
Now a couple months later I have a different problem, it says to turn the power on and off again when I turn it on to take pictures.
