Re: camera will pan to an area but will not stay there.
Most PTZ cameras have an "inactivity" setting. If no command inputs are entered into the keypad for a programmed amount of time, typically between 30 seconds - 5 minutes, the camera will return to it's pre-set position. You should be able to turn this off in the camera programming. A good way to test to see if this is the problem would be to point the camera to an area, then make very tiny adjustments to the direction every 2-3 seconds. If the camera does not go to the pre-set, then inactivity is turned on. Also, point the camera to an area and time how long before it returns to pre-set. If it is the same amount of time on every occasion, this would also indicate that inactivity is turned on.

Lets try this again. Computer just shut off near the end of my explanation. Once more, these computer operated engines in vehicles now are just plain finicky. No signal from a faulty sensor will not change the situation. When first start, the computer puts it in cold start mode, putting more fuel into the engine so it will start and keep running. If the faulty temperature sensor is not sending a warmed up signal to the computer, it stays in cold start mode, dumping excess fuel into the engine when warm and it won't run right. First thing I'd do is check and change the temperature sending unit. Ya gotta be smarter than the computer to figure these things out. Mainly just some common sense works too. I still haven't figured out why my computer shut down a few minutes ago. Like I'd pushed the off button. It's a computer, garbage in, garbage out.
It's quite rare for one of these pan gaskets to leak so before you take it off I would suggest thoroughly cleaning the entire pan and then going for a short test run then carefully inspecting the pan area again to see if you can pinpoint the exact source of the leak. Often I see the oil filter adapter or oil cooler lines [if equipped] leaking which can cause oil to run down the side of the pan and make it appear as though the pan gasket has failed. Sorry I don't have the procedure for removal of the pan but I rarely have to take one off for a leak. Hope this helps and good luck!
Self-defrosting refrigerators turn themselves off to defrost once in each 24-hour cycle. There is a 'drip pan' under the refrigerator that catches water from this automatic defrost cycle. The pan is not very deep, so if the unit is leaning very much, water will run over the top of the pan. For this and other reasons, you should try to keep the unit as level as possible.
If this refrigerator has a Energy Saver mode, turn it on.
Then, check the door gasket for the refrigerator to make sure it's not leaking. Test by placing a crisp dollar bill on the door jamb with the door open, close the door, and you should feel resistance to pulling the dollar out. Check with particular emphasis on the place where you see water leaking or accumulating
experts say that there may come a time in a fridge's life where you have to open the back panel and clean the condensation coils. When they go in cooling mode, you get frost on the outside of the firdge (on the coils) because of the dirt. When the fridge goes off cooling the frost melts and of course, comes out under the fridge. Still is your fridgea normal one, or one that is connected to a water pipe?
I just fixed my daughters camera with this problem. First go to the capture mode and see if the reason you are in review mode is because the camera thinks it is docked. If so, look at the dock port on the bottom of the camera. ( May need to magnify it to see in there ) Look for any green corrosion between the contacts. Her's has this corossion between two pairs of the contacts. I took a jewelers screw driver and scraped out the corrosion and then blew canned air in there to remove it. Turned it on and now it works fine. I have a feeling that the battery compartment is venting through this port and the small amount of acid vapor produced as the batteries discharge is causing the contacts to get this corrosion.
I had exactly the same problem I seem to have solved it by holding down the shutter button and then pressing the on/off button. It powered up and the lens stayed out. It was not auto focusing, so I placed it into manual focus and ran it back and forth in manual focus mode. (The circular button on the back adjusts manual focus by pressing it to the right or left) I suspect it's part of the start up self test that checks to see if the auto focus system is working, if it fails it shuts off. I think I stumbled onto a override of sorts by the button combination. Running the manual focus seemed to help. I do have a small black area in the upper right of the screen that gets no light - a dark spot. I store the camera in my pocket, I wonder if some pocket fuzz got into the camera somehow...
