UPDATE!

Okay this is a very odd situation. If I switch the lens and body to MANUAL focus it will fire. BUT, it will ONLY fire if the preview screen is on prior to depressing the shutter release. Regardless of the situation/settings, the camera will not release the flash on its own. I have listed steps to get the camera to fire below:

Switch lens and body to Manual Focus mode
Depress manual flash button
depress menu key to turn on preview screen
depress shutter release and the camera will take a photo but only under these circumstances.

So tell me guys, has my camera died or what? The pictures I can get it to take under the above circumstances are crisp and clear
