Does it mean anything for you?
As I read it, you camera doesn't function at all. It is not recognized by the PC and you can't record, but the yellow LED is always on (with or without a card inserted) when the power button is pressed.
If this assumption is correct, then there could well be a problem with the CMOS lens ribbon cable. Either there is a bad connection or one of the tiny wires in the ribbon cable is cracked.
