I've had this camera for a few years now and havent experienced much problems with it until a few months ago... Occasionally i get "system fail" message and camera shutsdown, it can happen after 1 pic or 100 pics, doesnt seem to be any fixed time etc. I've also noticed that the lense sometimes jitters on power-up and can leave a black area as lens isnt alligned, yet goes away if camera is left off for a while and re-powered up. I've tried firmwares 1 to 3, all do the same thing...any ideas?
I've been quoted £70 for a refurbish, but thats more than a better camera these days.
