Just remove your card and slide the little grey**(mine was grey) thing forward or backward. Mine just locked up and it really scared me. It's not your camera, just a small switch on your card. By sliding it opposite to where it is now, it should solve the problem, as it just did for me.

OP claims problem exists even w/o SD card installed. If that's the case the problem is the switch mechanism inside the SF card slot. Need to look inside slot and see if something is causing switch to stick closed.
