My one year old camera is fallen once and was not properly closing off. After reading solution tried hiting the cam when its flat and worked fine that time. Later it used to switch on, only when it is positioned horizontal. Few days later that was also not working. Now the lens alignment is fully gone and zoom hangs as handicapped. Seek your valuable solution.

Hi, This problem occurs due to following reason. 1) Your battery has become inefficient... In this case change your battery.. that means replace old battery with new one. 2) Motor which manages lens has been malfunctioning... In this case you have to get it serviced... 3) Firmware of the cam has been corrupted. In this case also you have to get it serviced..(This option is very rare) Hope this has helped you... Please rate the answer.. Thanks...
hi ian. this is not a normal camera operation. usb connecting screen should only appear during camera to computer connection. so if your using the camera and this happens intermittently it would indicate that there is a mulfunction inside the camera that's causing this issue to appear all of a sudden. professional repair may be needed. but you can try these following t/s steps: initializing camera (see:p.75 of the handbook), power reset (remove power source incl. battery and leave cam w/o power for a minute), or check multi-connector port for any grounded or broken terminals. hope this helps. thanks:)
While I do not have a P72, I find this problem odd. Most flash cycle times are so rapid that your grandaughter could not possible close her eyes in that time period (the travel time for the flash to fire and be reflected from the child's face is far faster than a human blink). The problem may be in pre-flash and not the flash itself. So that redeye-reducing "feature" may be responsible for your problem. Does your camera have a redeye reduction mode on the flash?
