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

I have a Sony DSC-H1 that I bought a couple of years ago. I have had no problems with the camera at all until recently. I was recording a short movie in "movie mode". When I switched back to "camera" mode, however, it does not seem to convert back. Everytime I try to take a picture, it says "recording" and records a movie. I even tried switching to some of the special modes, i.e. A (apreture), S (shutter), and M (manual) to no avail. It still starts recording movies. Has anyone ever heard of this or have any ideas on what may wrong? Thanks. Jim

Re: 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. Click repair and service under Technical Support. This will get the process started on the warranty work.

Recharge of flash

Sony H1 camera has a delay to recharge the flash and I hope that you know that as you are using it for the last three years. If the time delay is a new issue check the MAH of the battery to ensure that it will be above 2200 at least. If the MAH is below 2200 it is natural that the time delay will be more to recharge the flash. If my solution proves good please rate it. Regards.

It sounds like you have the Mode switch set to the Movie position instead of the Record position. The Mode switch should be set as show on the following image:
