The memory card you changed, are you able to confirm it works in another Camera. This is a lot of times the memory card and I just want to rule out they are not both faulty by coincidence.

The memory card works with another camera. In addition the LCD screen has gone orange and no live view picture can be seen
ah ok thanks Teri, that confirms the issue.
It is the internal mainboard that has faulted. Its not directing communications with the memory card, the LCD screen and likely a host of other functions.
I am really sorry about this and you are going to have to return the camera to have the mainboard replaced. It will be covered by the warranty if this has not expired, and the replacement will be done at no cost to you.
I am really sorry about this, and if you have problems, or would like any additional information or assistance, please do not hesitate to let me know.
And if you can take a second to rate my service, that would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you
