I happened right in a middle of a hiking trip without a warning between 5 minutes. There was no dropping, just turn off/on. All function worked but all I saw was dark screen on LCD Live view and picture. I can hear the shutter noise (or simulated noise whatever). I did try to shoot the sun directly and saw some light streak in the image, that's it.

Ended up sending back under warranty (only 3 months old). It was fixed and sent back. Have no clue how they fixed it.

The sound you heard was the mirror. It is an actual sound made by moving parts, just not the shutter!

A P&S wouldn't have a mirror.

Oops. Missed the title of the post (why does DPR allow a separate title for each post anyway?). In which case, almost definitely a simulated shutter sound.
