Default Olympus sp-550uz shoot problem


I have this camera 2 years already.

so yesterday i tried to choose resolution and when i pushed menu,
it entered the options screen but suddenly took a photo without me touching anything.

it has been doing this suddenly, it did not fall or get hit and it just taking pictures by itself.

what can i do? i tried to take out the batteries and to wait but it didnt help.
can i fix it by reseting it or should i go to a lab?

G'day ST

Firstly mate > Welcome to Steve's ... there's lots of mad-keen camera buffs here who will try to "confuse" you with helpful advice > and I'll start it off ...

The Oly camera is a good camera, no doubt about that, however if it is starting to misbehave as you describe, then it 'could be' a circuitry problem with the main circuit board

I suggest that you make some notes of when/where/what's happening each time it does something strange to see if there's a pattern, before talking to your local Oly repairer. 2-yrs seems a bit 'young' for 'old-age issues' to be coming up

Othere here may have a feed into the Oly world more than I, and as such may have heard of other examples & another solution
