Well, maybe it's time to share this experience with you. I don't know if you should be worried or not, because it may happen.
My Lumia 720 is bricked, dead, kaput, gone, farewell my 720.
It's stucked with the double gear grinding and grinding endlessly. [No, it changed again: i tried to reboot it, and now it tries to boot but it gives me the symbol of drained battery, even if it was in charge for the whole night]
I had to reset it to factory setting, and the process didn't went well. Why had I to reset it? Let's start from the begin.
In the last weeks, I had some strange and worrying behaviours with my touch screen; randomly, my Lumia 720 started to vibrate like I was touching some button and Bing search came up, then the start screen, then Bing again until I pressed any key.
Yesterday, I was out in the green loving the beautiful italian landscape, and I tried to take some photos. But every time I tried to open the camera app, I was "redirected" back to the start screen. I tried to reboot three times, with no result. In the end, I had to factory reset the phone. And here we are.
It's a sad story, with no happy ending.

There are multiple fixes for the spinning cogs issue. You just need to do a search, there are many posts within this forum on that very problem.
I encountered the problem about 2 weeks ago, after a hard reset. I solved the issue by doing a soft reset (power and volume down for ten seconds until vibrate), then when at the Nokia screen i pressed the following buttons in order > volume up, volume down, power button, volume down (one button at a time).
Within 5 minutes the spinning cogs stopped and i was returned to the welcome screen.
If this fails, there are other methods, just do a quick search.

Same happened with my phone. Whenever I press the camera button it takes me back to the main screen. Tried opening Panorama app same problem but when i tried BLINK app black screen appeared and at the top it was written touch to click, but nothing happened. Did a hard reset and it took like 1 hr. but same gears moving. Then tried pressing volume down and lock key for bout 10 sec phone restarted .But still same issue. Camera not working.
Any luck .
