I finally got the menu button to work by firmly pressing downward on the mode dial while turning it. Once the menu opened, I went to set-up and initialized all settings. This action reset all the settings to default and now all of the buttons are working.

Check that your digital camera is not in playback or review mode. Make sure the memory card is in the camera and that the card is properly formatted. The Memory Card may be full. Download the images to the computer or delete some to make way for new photos. Check the charge on the batteries. Replace if necessary. Have you been using the flash? It may be recharging. When it is recharged, the camera will be ready to take photos again.
Per Evan89's remark above, on these units the "shutter" button fails in the "on" or "down" position. There are a lot of reports on the internet. As soon as you turn the camera on it charges the flash and takes one or more pictures. It won't respond to other controls because it senses that the shutter bitton is depressed. A side effect is that the battery drains quickly.
I'm looking around to see if I can order a replacement switch assembly since these cameras are easy to take apart.
1. Turn off the camera.
2. Remove the memory card.
3. Remove the batteries.
4. Wait at least 3-5 minutes.
5. Place the memory card and batteries.
6. Turn on the camera in any mode except review mode.
7. Take any ordinary picture.
8. Change the camera mode to review.
9. What happened now. Is everything normal. if not please write a comment to explain the situation.
Put the camera in picture review mode. Then use the zoom to bring up thumbnail diplays. Use the up/down, right/left buttons to navigate to the individual picture that you want to erase. Then press the "trashcan" button on the back of your camera. Select yes when it asks if you want to delete this picture.
Alternately you can delete all the pictures by again selecting picture review mode, pressing "menu", then scrolling to "erase all" pictures.
You should have a pic review when the canera is powered on. Some cameras have a review only power switch that allows the screen to view pic s but not turn on the camera. there should be a delete button that once you are reviewing your photos you can delet one at a time or it will say "delete all" click delete all and enter to delete all. if you can find no review or delete buttons they will be in the main menu. Good luck!!
