Something seems to be broken or off between the mode dial and the switch. It also may have broken internal parts.
I have had a camera with a similar problem. It was that the small switch inside was broken, and could not be repaired.
These mode switches can be changed, but will require a digital camera repairman to do such a job. It also could be sold for parts/repair on a site such as Ebay.
