I've had my Coolpix S200 for over 2 years and it has always been great.

Now when I switch it on, after 4 seconds it locks up. If you're really quick you can take one picture before it stops working. But after that you have to turn it off and on again.

Screen shows whatever the camera is looking at (normal)
"AF" appears on screen in red/blue
Buttons unresponsive
Red 'flash is charging' light stays on

Battery is fully charged, no changes to memory card recently. Can't think of any action which will have caused this. Serial number 8052xxxx.

I have googled to see if anyone else has described the same problem, but not found anyone.

Thanks in advance if you have any thoughts....
