Re: digital memory card
Cards can go bad, but usually this happens only after a long period of time (years), or if exposed to a magnetic force of some kind. You can try a few things to resolve it: 1. Try reformatting the card, if the device can process data on it. 2. Insert the card into a card reader on a PC to see if the drive can be read. If you can read the card, remove all data and empty the trash, then reformat it. 3. If you get an error on that as well, replace it. It's not worth risking that you might lose your valuable pictures to unstable media.

The number is usually how many pictures the camera's memory can hold. If it came with a USB cord, or you have one that works on it, connect it to a PC and see if autoplay will let you open folder to view files. Then just drag and drop the images or copy them to the PC. Get an SD card for more picture storage and the camera might copy them to the card for easier retrieval.
Best way is to download the pictures to a computer through a card reader (optional). The blue blank screen could be deleted images using the garbage can icon. Retrieving those images can be done but it cost to have a recovery program used and there is no grantee that the images can be extracted because the card my have been written over or formatted. Once you have your images saved to a computer the memory card should be loaded bak into the camera and the memory card formatted to give a clean working surface for the camera to write new files to.
You can only access the internal memory, when there is no card in the camera. So, turn off the camera, remove the card, connect to the computer and save the images to the computer. After checking that images are saved, you can delete the images in the internal memory, before inserting the card again.
Yes, the first thing to try is a new memory card. They do go bad. As for the current card, hang onto it. You still may be able to retrieve the photos once you get back to your computer using retrieval software. See this link.
Be sure you have formatted the card, not the internal memory (if the camera has that). Be sure your battery is fully charged, so that the device can fuly write the file. Be sure you are writing the file to the card, and not the internal memory, as there may not be enough space on it to write the file. If this does not resolve the problem, let me know.
