Yes but it was good to see Mike using an old thread to check on his problem - glad he worked it out. Did not seem like a dead camera syndrome from his description.

I am now reconciled to thinking that is it simply caused by a short burst of very heavy continuous use involving zooming and regular use of the screen. On one occasion I remember well I was switching the camera on and off fairly regularly then using zoom as well.

It seems unpredictable and I have not been able to replicate it. I have not had this trouble for quite a while and I still use the same battery stock.
