Hi, thank you for contacting JustAnswer.com. My name is Russell. I will do my best to provide the right answer to your question.

It sounds to me, at an initial guess, as if you have a problem with settings.

A general settings reset would be best, ***** *****

(That will erase all stored setting configurations and white balances and such, that you may have on the camera. But it could cure the problem, at the least with bracketing, if not with P mode behavior as well.)

How to do it, if you would like to try it:

There are two button to hold down at the same time, which are marked with green dots, that when you hold them down at the same time.

They are the Release Mode (the several pages icon) and the WB button, at the bottom of the back of the camera.

If that does not cure the problem, I need to ask for more information about the camera:

How old is the camera? in months or years since you bought it.

Has the camera been dropped or otherwise subjected to mechanical shock(s) in its lifetime?

Has the camera been operated in or subjected to, temperatures below 32 degrees F (freezing point) or above about 100 degrees F ?

Has it ever been subjected to a humidity higher than 85 % or gotten wet ?

Has the camera been operated in a gritty or sandy environment, such as a beach, a seaside, a construction site, or the like?

- If this answers your question, please rate my answer. A five-star rating would be appreciated!
