Well, when I take a pic it focuses as it should. When I take the pic the display stays black and doesn't show a thing. the red light on the right side stays on.. the one that blinks when you put the camera on or put in a new card. then when I try to turn the camera off, a circle appears on the display that says " recording... remaining images 1. it will not turn off unless I open the batteryholder cover.
The camera may not be fully reset. The camera has shooting modes where it collects multiple images, and combines them into a single final image. Go through the menus, and disable anything that says "HDR" or multiple exposure.
What shooting mode is the camera in? Use the green <A> mode, for now. This mode should disable all of the more exotic features and functionality in the camera body.

Ok, now I did it again. I tried to format the card, there is 160KB in use.. even the low level format. it stays on 160 KB used. I put the camera in auto (green mode) and when I take a pic it says "busy" and that's it.. when I turn the camera off it always says "recording..
Seeing a small amount of memory "in use" on a memory card is normal. Some space is used to keep track of folder names, file names, and where the data associated with a given file name is physically stored.
Okay. If you have gone through the menus and reset the camera [you should have had to do it in at least two places, BTW] then your camera is malfunctioning and in need of repair. Sorry, I do not know what else to tell you to do.
