Re: P880 bad exposure switch?

I had the camera I think for three years now but this problem came up early in the third month.

When I tried to take a picture the camera just reset it self, and not only ones. I never abused the camera. First I tough that maybe the battery, then maybe the card, than maybe new firmware needed. This problem is very inconsistent. Sometime I have 10 or more minute problem free, sometime goes in and out right from start-up,

I get use to live with it. Doing this "trick" at action helps the situation a little. It works for me!

I think there is simple electromechanical problem, and force the button to the right maybe makes the contacts tighter. If the problem gets worst, I may take it a part.
