The monitor screen is not lighting up to look at to take a picture. I've changed the battery still doesnt light up. But I can view previous pictures taken.

Have you tried removing the actual lens(?) to see if there's something inside the camera house that's not supposed to be there. I'd find it highly unlikely that the, thou who knows. The best thing to do, would be to drop it off at your local camera repair-store.
