I'd first have a look at the camera's menus and look for one that resets all settings to defaults.

If it's out of warranty you'll have to find a dealer who can fix it. And pay them.

It's a shame that digital cameras seem so fragile -- I still occasionally use a Leica 35mm camera that was made in 1958 and similar looking cheap Russian cameras from the same era that mostly work.

I worked in a repair shop for 5 years. what i would do 1st is reset the camera to factory defaults(all slr's can do it) if that doesnt work i would remove the lens and see if the mirror looks locked. behind your main mirror you have a second smaller mirror that is the focus mirror if that is stuck you need to have it repaired, the warranty will cover it if it is under a year old. a repair shop will charge around 100 plus parts to replace a focus mirror
