GX85 Problems

For many years I have visited the Panasonic Compact site (FZ20, LX3, FZ35, LX5, and FZ1000). I have never found the manuals easy to follow, but the GX85 that I now own gives me many headaches. The first one is the inability to partially depress the shutter button; as soon as I touch it lightly the picture is taken. I never had that problem with any of my other Panasonics; is it possible to make a setup error that causes this? Or is it likely a mechanical issue in which case I will have to return to Panasonic? The second problem I have is that when I use the Quick Menu, I do not get the 2 rows of small menus that are shown in the manual; just one large menu is what I see. And some of the menus such as Quality have disappeared. And even if this did not happen, I doubt that I could get rid of the menus I do not want based on the instructions in the manual (detailed).

I would greatly appreciate any help that you can give me. Theo
