K7: Camera unresponsive after taking photo

My K7 has starting a troubling behavior. When I take a photo, I see the red light go on as the photo processes and then turn off. The LCD goes blank or off and then never comes back on without some kind of stimulus. For example, if I turn the camera off and on it comes back. Or eventually the menu button will kick it in gear.

The battery is presently low, and I haven't had a chance to see if charging it will fix the issue.

Anyone experienced this?

Uhm, normally the photo comes up automatically for a few seconds and then switches to the info screen... without needing to push the info button....

Charge the battery before you do anything else.

+1 with snofox.

Charge immediately your battery.

Also, check the version of your firmware.
