Default Frozen LCD/camera problem - C-750

I just purchased a C-750 and was scrolling through the menus, etc., last night when the camera froze in histogram display mode. Now I am new to the camera and not even sure how I got to that mode, so maybe it was something I did? There was no way to change the screen...it was frozen and the camera would not even power off. I finally had to resort to removing the batteries. Has anyone else had this problem? I'm wondering if it's a glitch in the Oly menu system, a defective camera, or something I did. As far as I'm concerned, you should *always* be able to get out of a menu screen or option, and this has me concerned. Any input is appreciated!

Have you been able to duplicate this problem, or was it one of those where you didn't know what you did?

It could be that this was a one time thing. You have to remember that the camera is a computer, and computers do freeze...but it is unnerving when it does happen the first time; I've owned my C-700 over a year when I was continually shooting at a party when the camera froze...like you I opened the battery door for a few seconds and then closed it again, and the camera was fine again. But it's still unnerving!

I've never heard of this problem...I'm in a C-7x0 camera group, and maybe someone there may be able to help you:

I can't duplicate the problem because I don't remember what I did immediately prior to it happening. It is unnerving for something like that to happen, especially the first time you're checking out a camera's features. I'm still trying to decide between the C-750 and Kodak's new DX6490, and this little glitch made me a bit wary of the C-750. Probably unwarranted, I know, but still...
Thanks for the input!
