My camera got knocked off a table two years ago, but continued to work although with stuck lens problems. However, during the past week, it has totally gone dead. It simply won't power up - no LEDs on - no sign of life. I tried using new batteries, wiping the battery contact points with a clean cloth inside the camera compartment. Does anyone have any suggestions, or is it time to find a replacement? Any ideas would be appreciated. Thank you
My LC33 is slow to come back to life if I leave the batteries in it till totally dead. Putting fresh in usually requires pressing and holding the shutter button for several seconds and releasing it before the camera will come back to life.

The DMC-LC33 is designed to work with SD cards. Your 4GB card is actually an SDHC (Secure Digital High Capacity) card. While it fits into the slot it will not work. You need to use SD cards, 2GB and smaller.
that is a symptom of being dropped and stuck in a mode. it requires total dissemble of the camera to fix or replace the lens. your lucky it takes pictures at all. most cameras refuse if the lens is stuck.
