I have done a lot of successful flights, but today when I tried to power on, my gimbal would not stabilize. It appears it can't assume the horizontal position. It tries to initialize on a 45 degree angle, like something is broken.

I don't know how anything broke as it flew successfully yesterday. Because it won't stop trying to initialize, it can't be calibrated, nor can I do IMU recalibration.

Anyone else had these problems? Must I replace the whole unit, or is there a fix? Any help appreciated.

If you cant do an IMU and gimbal calibration, there is definitely an issue.

Give us some details. What firmware are you running? What phone or tablet device? Do you have any previous experience prior to the P3?

Newest firmware, and it doesn't matter if the controller is on, it just won't initialize the gimbal.
Here's what happens when I activate the battery...

Has it crashed? It looks like the bracket that holds the gimbal to the bird, on the upper left, is broke.
Off topic but how did u get the red circle? I can only do arrows in PS.
