You are right in identifying the cause of the pre-mature shut-down of the camera during video recording. Battery saving features (auto-shut down) detect the camera as idle while you are recording. you could do two things to avoid this;
1. A short term practice is to manipulate the camera to stay on by using the zoom button, taking a snap-shot or anything like that from time-to-time, before the 2 minutes is up. This will keep the camera awake long enough for you to record a good length of video.
2. The second and permanent option is to program the camera - just as you mentioned. You can do that by opening the menu and under camera setting , scroll down till you find the auto-power save. Change the time to your preference
Please note: You have to switch off your camera as soon as practicable while the auto-switch-off time is set at a bigger value to conserve the battery. otherwise the battery will be drained quicker than you imagine.
Hello. If you're shooting in Auto mode and you have turned off the flash, your camera will remember that setting and the flash will not fire. If you switch the dial on top of your camera to another mode and then back to auto it should clear the setting and the flash should now fire, if needed. The other thing to try is to hold down the the flash popup/mode button while, at the same time, turning the rear control dial. You can watch your top display and the flash modes should cycle through different options.
Make sure the vent from the dryer to the outside is clean.
Reduced air flow can cause your symptom.
You can remove the vent hose from the dryer and operate the dryer in the automatic cycle.'
If the timer advances you know the vent needs cleaning.
Clean the lint filter housing also.
A flashlight helps to see all the way down the housing.
I had the same problem. After much testing, I realized that the SD card had a problem, so I reformatted it on the computer and that solved the problem. I may replace the card anyway, as they're relatively inexpensive.
You will have to navigate your Tools screens to set a longer auto off period as the auto off isn't working for you. Otherwise, I've seen this when the recharable battery no longer retains a suffcient charge to satisfy the camera even though it is still usable. If the camera thinks there is only 10% of battery charge left in the capacity of the battery it will default to shut off, not sleep, anyway no matter what you do.
You may need to try another or newer/new battery if all else above failes.
