Hi. Have had this camera since dec 2006. I've only taken approx 30 shots with it. Last 2 shots came out blank and the camera died! It will not now power-up. I was using the batteries supplied,but since the problem I have brought a charger and tried it with Ni-MH batteries. If anyone has any suggestions or ideas I would be grateful.
Looks like the battery rating that you have used is not the rated ones that you are supposed to use with the camera. check the mah of the batteries supplied with the camera and the ones that you have bought. it should be the same or possibly more than you already have. Always remember that the batteries you buy at the shop may already have outlived the shelf life. after using it check if it still has any life in the battery, in a flashlight or something, that will indicate some charge in it. maybe the batteries are new but bad.

If you have DISP/ DISPLAY button then press it 2 - 3 times and see the result. After that if the problem still same then take a snap & see it in PC. If the snap not taken by camera then its a CCD fault . If you able to see the photo in PC then its a LCD display problem & need servicing.
I have the same problem, and upon looking into my problem, i recall reading that Sony had used crappy glue in which they attached the CCD to the inner guts of the camera, and when that deteriorates, which doesn't take very long, then your pictures will have lines through them.
I think i remember reading that Sony said they will replace all cameras within 2 years of their manufacture. Call Sony's troubleshooting and support and they may replace it for you.
Solution: Ebay has used cameras (DX4530) for about $75.00 with shipping. Kodak's repair service for these cameras is done by mailing in the camera -- and the baseline starting price is about $140. I'm planning to go to Ebay and buying from a seller with a good track record and reputation.
