I have had my camera for 3 almost four years now. My camera will stop taking pics, it tries to focus zooming in and out but won't take a picture. Then maybe 1 hr later it is working again. This has done this twice to me now. What could the problem be?

Does the problem go away in bright light?

In One Shot focus mode the camera won't take a picture until focus has been achieved. If light is dim (e.g. indoor lighting), and/or the object under the active focus point lacks contrasts, you get the focus 'hunting' you are experiencing.
