Hi, thank you for contacting JustAnswer.com. My name is***** will do my best to provide the right answer to your question.
Have you inserted a memory card yet?

Do you push the 'shutter' button to take the picture, all the way down? half-way pushes of a shutter button often have a different function than taking the picture - e.g. adjusting auto-focus and such functions. (So that you press half-way to adjust the focus etc. just before taking the picture for real, then push the button down all the way.)

If that's not the problem, tell me in Reply To Expert, and I will help and advise you further.
