"Effect" spinning button broken

This is a problem with the "Effect" button on my s500. This is the spinning button on the top. I can't use all the functions. I'll set it to Program, and it will go to the Auto setting and I'll set it to Manual but I get the Children setting. How can I fix this?

Re: "Effect" spinning button broken

Check that it is doing all that it says in the manual and that you have not misread somewhere. If you are convinced that you are correct then Samsung customer support. It may be you will have to live with reduced functions or buy a new camera.

Images have pink overlay

I had the same problem with my camera, suddenly the LCD and picture shows some pink image overlay bands on the top usually. When focusing the bands sometimes disappear. But they always shows on image as on the LCD. Canon seems to fix this problem as goodwill (guarantee is not valid anymore) so I sent my camera to service for this. Hope they accept this otherwise it is broken, LCD common problem. (Solution or same problem we will see)

Switch the dial on the top of the camera to the picture that looks like a film square from a movie and then when you are ready to start video taping just press the button that you use to take pictures. Then when you are done taping, hit the same button again.

Doesn't turn on

Customer support at Samsung it may be fixable under warranty- because I do not know what effect Play station would have on a camera.
