I went to take a photo and the camera started flashing "H" and a battery icon, which looks like the battery is full. I repalced the battery, but the same thing occurs. If I turn the camera to "off" or "auto" nothing changes.

won't record photos.
Make sure you've selected a photography mode with your camera, rather than a
playback mode or a video mode. If your camera's battery power is low, the
camera might not be able to record photos.
if your camera's internal memory area or your Memory card is full, the camera won't record
any more photos.
With some cameras, the internal software only
allows a certain number of photos to be recorded on a single memory card
because of how the software numbers each photo. Once the camera hits its limit,
it won't save any more photos. (This problem is more likely to occur when an
older camera is paired with a new, large memory card.) The battery is the root
of most common digital camera issues. Though battery life has been extended as
battery and digital camera technologies evolve, no battery lasts forever. When
your batteries begin to run out, sometimes your camera responds in wacky ways
that may not seem connected. The flash may not come on, the autofocus won't
engage as quickly as it did before or the LCD screen will power off
intermittently. All of your camera's responsiveness is linked to its battery
strength. Change batteries and try to recreate a problem; odds are you won't be
able to. It's a good idea to carry a backup battery for cameras that use
lithium-ion cells or a pack of spares for cameras that use AA. Watch your
battery icon for a general idea of
The flash is automatic when the camera senses low light while in the full automatic mode and many of the preset modes. If you want full control over the flash and the "look" of the pictures you need to move into the "creative zones" Unlike the little icons these will be marked with "M" for Manual, "AV" for Aperture Value, "TV" for Time Value or "P" for program. you are most likely shooting in full auto which is a little green rectangular box.
Firstly, charge your battery fully. This should solve the switching off. It sounds to me like your card isn't in correctly, or is incompatible, and your internal memory is full. (it usually only stores a few photos for emergencies) Have a look at the type of card you have. If it says SDHC, or is 4GB or larger, it is not compatible with your camera and you need to get a 2GB. If not, it may not be inserted correctly. Push it all the way into the slot and it will click when it's in properly. Then try formatting it. Press review (where you look at the photos) and scroll down to setup- then look for 'format' and press okay. This should sort everything out. You can also copy the photos you've taken in the meantime from the memory to the card by pressing copy in the review menu and scrolling to the right. Hope that helps
I have the same problem with my 770 SW. The funny thing is, some outlets in my house will allow it to charge, some will just make the light flash. I found your question looking for a better solution. Try all the outlets in your house with the charger, I know it sounds silly, but it works for me.
We had the exact same problem. We transferred the photos off of the camera and then it went away. So possibly it is a memory full error or a card read error. I am not sure but the transfer solved the issue.
