Default HELP!!!! Something is wrong with my camera, PLEASE...ANYBODY

I hope someone can help me! Over the weekend I was taking pics at a family reunion and my 13 month old son accidentally kicked my camera! I have an Olympus Camedia 3020zoom. I have wanted a new camera but I was trying to wait until the first of the year!

Here is what happens:

I am new at photography so bear with my camera terms! Anyway, I hold the button half way down to focus and it gives a f stop of f2.8, then when I take the picture the f stop goes up to f7.0 or f9.0 and the picture comes out dark like there wasn't a flash at all. I have checked all my settings and can't figure it out! The flash sounds really strange.

Does anyone have any ideas what it could be??

Thanks for your help!

Leave the batteries out of the camera for 24 hours and then try it again.

I did take them out for about 12 hours, I think, to recharge them. I will try again! Thanks for your reply. I am so frustrated right now. I want to get a new and better camera but wanted to wait until after Christmas. If this doesn't work, maybe it is a sign from above!!

Thanks again for your help!

Dawn
