RX10 Mk4 Power Save mode.

Something a bit funny with the Power Save mode on my RX10M4

I recently noticed that the camera won’t enter Power Save mode when the zoom is out at 500mm - or so I thought, so I have done some tests to try to establish exactly what’s happening.

Power Save set to I minute.

Turn camera on - zoom goes to 24mm. After one 1minute, goes to Power Save mode.

Turn on again, zoom out to 100mm, same again, no problem.

Same at 200mm but was soon as I go out to 300mm or further, it won’t go to PS.

Bring it back to 200, then 100 then 24 and still it won’t go to PS.

Turn off the camera and back on, still won’t go to PS but if I turn off the camera, remove the battery and wait for five minutes and then turn it back on, I can repeat the above sequence but it still will not go to PS from anything over 300mm.

This happened some months ago as well and I had to do a full Reset - Initialise and all has worked OK since then but now it starts over again.

I don’t mind doing the Initialise but I shouldn’t have to.

Also of course one loses all your personal settings and menus and these then all have to be re entered, quite a long job! - if you can remember them!

Anybody else had this issue, but more importantly, found a solution?
