Screen reads..."Mode dial is not in the proper position"

Nothing I have done solves this problem... eg recharge battery, select various mode settings, laying of hands ; ), etc.etc. No buttom pushing has remedied the problem.

I had the same problem, so bought a few precision screwdrivers and took the back off. Be careful, but you can release the top section and on the bottom of the dial is a few plastic spacers which had squashed. I straightened these out, carefully put it back together, and this solved it. I think these spacers hold the electronin dial in place, hence why it comes up with " not in proper position ". If you fancy trying, it only took me 5 minutes and I know nothing about electronics.

Very dark video output and view through the view screen, no matter where the ISO dial is set. The Auto, C1 and C2 mode for Photos is just as dark. I can take good pictures only in P (Program) mode, al


This is most often a problem with the imaging sensor and no reset is going to repair the part. Also, if replacing it, it needs to be properly calibrated after installed. If you need help with this, this is the place we recommend for the Canons: www.CamerasAndParts.com They are the best for these models, they only work on Canons and they are excellent for repairs. They have a service package for about $90 which takes care of an image problem as you have or you can try emailing them first. As far as service and the quality of work, I wouldn't go anywhere else but them for a Powershot. They are the best for these cameras. Good luck

How do I set my Canon EOS Rebel T3i 18 MP CMOS Digital SLR to auto mode


If you mean the auto exposure mode, turn the mode dial on the top of the camera to the "A+" position, between the "P" and the lightning bolt.
If you mean autofocus, set the switch on the lens to the AF position if the lens has an autofocus switch. On the camera, press the AF button (cursor-right) then turn the command dial to select the desired mode.
If you mean the auto white balance, press the WB button (cursor-up) then turn the command dial to select the desired mode.
In the auto exposure mode the ISO mode is set to auto, and you can't change this.

I have a Nikon D3100 and surprisingly the dial mode does not work properly. I mean when I turn it, at some modes, it shows the selected mode correctly on the display, but not for all


Hello mehran_vafae, is supposed to have put a DX lens.
The mode dial, select in what way is going to take a picture.
You can make combinations according to the mode set in the mode dial, with the Fn key / command dial, command dial / aperture A mode, command dial / shutter speed S mode, Full Auto / + / - compensation sw, etc. ..
Please carefully read the user manual supplied with your camera and if it fails take them to Nikon service.
Regards

Panasonic DMC-TZ1 operates in Playback mode only


Hi,

The position from the dial wheel is not corresponding with the electrical position. If you can do it by yourself you can adjust it and tighten the midscrew from the dialwheel

CAMERA WILL NOT TURN ON


Try new good quality batteries.
i experienced this issue last night. Even after replacing the batteries i had the same problem though the batteries were from a very cheap pack & i'd had them a while. The camera worked fine once i'd recharged my normal batteries. I'm no expert but I expect switching the camera on must use much more power then review mode causing the camera to switch off before it has time to tell you your batteries are low.
Hope this solves your problem!

The LCD image is dark or nothing appears on the LCD screen.


The camera may have shut off automatically. Press the shutter button halfway down or turn the camera Off and then back On to View or Play mode. Make sure the lens cover is removed. Check your batteries and make sure they are installed correctly. Recharge or replace the batteries if necessary. Make sure the dial is set to LCD mode.
