Re: Camera stuck in movie mode

If you remove the back cover you will see that there is a switch on the main board wich changes the operation mode for the camera. It's normal position is "movie mode". On the back of the camera there is a know which changes the position of the mode switch - most likely that knob is damaged and would need to be replaced in order to resore normal operation to the camera. Please be aware that Fuji uses special security screws for the camera case to dicourage people from opening the cameras. With the right tools and replacement part this is an easy repair - I could do it for about $30, including shipping back to you - email me at if interested, or I could also buy your camera as is.

Hello, my A410 Pshot photos have fine lines and are overexposed. Movies ans flash seem to work OK. It started suddenly without warning. Tried changing settings without success. Would appreciate your...

Charles, First make sure that you're in the camera's automatic picture mode, and not it's manual mode. If so, then you're either experiencing a "stuck shutter" or a "broken shutter control ribbon cable" problem. Stuck shutter you can easily fix yourself, but fixing a shutter ribbon cable problem would not be an economical repair for your camera (in that case, would be time for a new camera). Please see this link that may help you sort out which problem that your experiencing. If you can't fix it with the listed stuck shutter troubleshooting steps (give it at least ten tries), then it's likely a broken ribbon cable.

My Canon PowerShot SD 1000 has this problem: when i turn on the camera, the display is black and i can`t see any image through.Same problem on the video mode. it doesn`t appear any error mesage. i tried to...

A stuck shutter is another common failure mode for digital cameras (including my wife's SD1000, which I have to fix every once in a while with the following easy technique).. The symptoms of a stuck or "sticky" shutter are very similar to CCD image sensor failure. The camera may take black pictures (for shutter stuck closed), or the pictures may be very bright and overexposed, sometimes with lines, especially when taken outdoors (for shutter stuck open). To confirm a stuck shutter, put the camera in any mode other than "Auto", and turn the flash OFF (you don't want to blind yourself for the next step). Next look down the lens and take a picture. You should see a tiny flicker in the center of the lens as the shutter opens and closes. If no movement is seen, then you likely have a stuck shutter. If so, please see this link for further info and a simple fix that may help. By the way, for your camera model, I've found it best to just alternate back and forth between opening the battery door while taking a picture, and gently flicking the lens barrel with the tip of my finger. Usually, it only requires a few tries for my wife's camera, then it's good for another couple months.

Cyber shot dsc-w1 stuck in movie mode

When you rotate the mode dial, does camera change the mode? Maybe it switches only between video and twilight modes and when you set the dial to, for example, Auto mode, it's actually in Video mode? I have seen problems like this before with these cameras, mode dial had to be changed. If so, you should contact your local Sony service center and ask the price. If they ask too much, you can contact me at and I can give you a better price.

Hope this helps!

Camera stuck in movie mode

press menu button, left or right arrow button until you come upon REC Mode. Choose option Normal. Yours is on Multiburst and that is causing your problem. Changing it to Normal should fix it.

UNIQUE PROBLEM: Camera stuck on Movie mode

It's a small world. I have an Ixus V2 on the bench with exactly the same problem. The sliding button on the camera mates with a switch soldered to a flat ribbon cable inside the camera. There are two small teeth which move the internal switch left ot right. What's happened is one of those plastic teeth has snapped off the external part and now it can't push the switch anywhere. If you pulled the camera apart you could push the switch into either record or review but that's it. It will stay in either of those positions. Which is a bummer. The only way to fix it is to buy the complete flat cable ribbon with switch attached and boy it's a long cable. Except for sending it away for repairs (expensive) buy a damaged one on Ebay and do a transplant. Just make sure it's suffering the same fault.
