I talked with a repairman via telephone. He suggested I buy a new camera. I thought what the hell, I will take it aprt myself. I took it apart, messed around and figured out how to change the mode to taking pictures. I still can't change modes with the mode selector switch but, I can now take pictures with my camera.

D90 wont shoot in auto mode. gives me r21 error. Manual mode works fine


Did you switch the Focus-mode selector to MF?
It is the switch with number 8. Perhaps you are used to switching on the lens, but on the body is also a switch. Normaly used for the older AF lenses.

Hi, I have a Canon Powershot A700 digital camera and I am facing a problem with it. The 'Mode Switch' button, which changes the mode from Shoot/Record mode to Play/View mode is not working....


If you have the manual for this camera turn to page 15.
This tells you how to switch between Shooting Mode and Playback Mode.
This is achieved simply by pressing the DISP button.
This button is located below and to the left of the FUNC/SET button.
Pressing DISP repeatedly toggles between Shooting Mode and Playback Mode.
I would suggest you try these steps with your Mode Switch in both positions alternately.

Canon powershot A520 doesn't work in camera mode. I can look at and edit pictures in viewing mode, but switching to "camera" won't let me take pictures... in this mode it also lets me view pictures already...


Hi!
Do other buttons work? If so, the switch could be broken because it sounds it doesn't switch to the CAMERA mode, just stays at the VIEW mode.
If you're not experienced in repairs, you should give it to a local repair shop or Canon service center.

Sorry for the bad news. I repair these cameras very often.

Hi!
A common problem with the W100. It can be taken apart and cleaned, but unless you have experience in things like these, I would recommend you getting a new mode switch. You can get one from here http://hop.02.lv/UQ

Canon PowerShot S410 - Mode Switch Problem


Your problem is fairly common. However, fixing it will require someone to actually open the camera case and clean the rotating switch (mode dial). Also, I've never personally opened an S410, but it should be similar to what's posted on the following blog using an A460's mode dial as an example. Keep in mind that there is some risk that you may actually make things worse. So remember to weigh the options before going in there. The responsibility of how things went is ultimately yours:

If you decide to conduct the repair yourself, please leave a follow up comment, either here or on the blog on how things went. Good Luck!

Sony dsc-H1 won't switch off of movie mode


When you switch the camera from mode to mode, does it make the click noise to signify that the camera recognized that it changed modes? If not it could be that the switch itself has become unlogged from the switch. I know I had a older camera had this happen before. Try pushing down hard on the toggle wheel and seeing if it will snap back into place. Otherwise the switch inside the camera itself is probably broken, and if this is the case cheapest thing you can do is have Sony do warranty work on the camera. http://www.sonystyle.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/SYCustomerCare?storeId=10151&catalogId=10551&langId=-1 Click repair and service under Technical Support. This will get the process started on the warranty work.

Repost of A70 Mode Switch Problem


Make sure that the mode switch on the cover is in the playback position. Unfortunately, I don't have a source for new switches.
