Dead batteries would. :) (Making it an answer, since it apparently was the answer.)
Sorry, the P520 will only expose for up to 8S at ISO100. For 200 and 400 it's 4 seconds, decreasing to 1/2 second max at HI1 ~ISO64000) This is very disappointing and is teh weakest aspect of an otherwise excellent camera IMHO.
It is the VR in the lens. Even if you have it turned off, when power is first supplied to the lens it will center the stabilizing element. If the camera is allowed to go into stand-by mode and then awakened by pressing the shutter button the same thing can occur if the stabilizing element in the lens has moved.
