At the week-end, when i turned my camera on, the photo function has ceased to work. The lens does not extend and there is no image on the LCD! All menu options are visible on the LCD
The playback function is working correctly though!
Has anybody experienced anything like this before?
Any help appreciated.

do you making the picture when it happen? what lens are you using? light condition? or it just turns off by itself? please be as precise as possible and we will find the solution ) if it happens when autofocusing just try to clean the lens contacts on the lens and inside the camera body for starters.
I fixed it!! Turn the lens to Manual mode (moving to M). Twist the very tip of the lens till it unlocks.
If you twist the lens on the end far enough on the end to the right you will find it "locks". This is what is causing the screeching sound,, it's locked and can't auto focus. Twist the very end to the left till it releases. This fixed it for me.
there may be two reasons for this problem.
1. may be a defective or broken CCD.
2. the shutter is not working may be due to broken flex circuit cable. in any of the case you have to get it fixed from a professional camera repairer
Another common problem. Lens troubles. You have either knocked your lens out of alignment or you have a foreign body jamming up the works in the lens control unit.
There have been many so called fixes for these problems but usually end up causing more problems than curing.
You could check that you have fully charged new batteries. Some cameras need that extra kick to get them to open the lens fully. Worn out batteries can stop a sticky lens in it's tracks and tell the processor there is a problem and to close down. It's well worth trying before writing it off.
