erratic activity by HX 80
I recently returned from a trip, HX 80 is "pocket camera"; pulled the SD card to download images, and put the card back in--tried to reformat. The camera began to turn on, and the lease extended fully, then began to cycle in and out--going out about half way now. Nothing will stop this except removing the battery.
If I leave the battery out--and then insert it--I can push the review button; The lease then retracts, and screen-- tells me there are no images. From there I can push the Menu button and run thru all menu options. I have done a soft Reset and initialization via Toolbox #6. "Device reset" Then I can re-initialize. Hitting menu will toggle between the "no image" and the menu. If I hit the shutter button the lens begins cycling in and out--nothing on the LCD screen.
Any ideas for a hard reset? I don't see anything jamming the lens--the first time it goes out all of the way. then cycles on about half way out--cycling to that point.
