Thank you so much for the welcome and the answers. The battery was fully charged. I even tried a new battery.I don't know if my memory card corrupted. It was formatted in the camera before I used it, and it is approved. I haven't yet tried using another one.The noise is new and prolonged. Instead of the camera 'click' of the shutter snapping - it sounds more like it is slowing dragging.I haven't tried resetting the camera, but will try to decipher how to do that! Thanks again.Dawn
