Hi, The LCD on my PD 170 is stuck in mirror mode....everything is upside down and backwards when it's facing me, and the little smily face is on the screen....I can still use the viewfinder.....how do I fix it? I can't find a setting for it in the menu....is it a hardware problem?

This is a problem with the mirror and the sensor. Have you out the camera in sensor clean mode? turning the camera to P then use the menu buttons to go to the second set of tool. clean sensor is there. You must have a good battery charge for it to work. take off the lens then hold the camera face down and activate the sensor. This did not work for me but this was one of the suggestions, if the mirror does lift back up when you put the camera in sensor clean mode then it is not the hinge that some are paying to be replaced. I took my camera and oddly enough turned it upside down in af mode in auto mode and it started shotting photos and focusing again. i did this about ten shots and when I put it backright sideup everything worked fine! Try it and let me know.
There's a button on the original remote control that does exactly that:

please select normal in this option as your prob just mounting it on a desk or table.
