RX100 broken or ????

I have a first generation RX100 - really nice little camera. It gets a lot of use for personal and business use. It no longer works and I'm thinking it's gone for good. But thought I'd ask those who have much more experience with these cameras than I do.

When turning on, the lens extends, but the back screen only shows this:   (the lens is against a table but even when it is not covered, it still is a fully dark screen)

After a few seconds, it turns to this....   And it will stay that way indefinitely.

When the camera is turned on, there is a definite clunking noise. But when I shake it, nothing is loose inside. The camera does get a lot of use. I don't baby it, but it doesn't get abused. No obvious miscues - drops, getting wet, etc.  Battery fully charged, SD card replaced. I'm assuming something simply broke but if anyone has any ideas or has seen this before, I would love to hear about it.

Thanks, Nick
