If your Photo Cart is suddenly getting a 500 error or only displaying a blank page then you or your hosting company has updated the PHP (programming language) to PHP 7 which Photo Cart is not compatible with (and will not be compatible with) mainly because of the removal of the my_sql functions which are replaced with my_sqli functions. 

You would need to have the PHP version downgraded to 5.6 in order for Photo Cart to work. If downgrading the PHP doesn't work then you may have to update Photo Cart to the last version of 7. Download Photo Cart 7 upgrade files. Upgrade instructions.

Photo Cart was retired in 2015. Check out Sytist.

Is there a way to turn off the notification email to the customer for placing an order? I only want to send them a notification after they have paid for the order.

There is not a way to turn off that email, but you can edit the content of that email in Settings > Default Emails > Order Placed Email.

If you're happy to modify some code, it can be done quite easily.

In the root directory of you gallery (on the server) you will find a file called "action.finalcheckout.php"

open it in a text editor and search for the text "sendEmail"

and you will find the following lines of code...
sendEmail($to_email, $to_name, $from_email, $from_name, $subject, $message);

if($site_setup['email_order_placed'] == "1") {

Either comment out the 'sendEmail' with a // or swap the two lines over.
By swapping them, the customer email will turn on/off with the admin "Email me when new order is placed (not paid)" option in the "Default Emails" screen.
