I have a sony cyber-shot dsc-w55 cammera, and my daughter turned the dial that changes the picture modes to many times and now it only records on every picture mode...any ideas how to reset it?

Based on the information you provided, it seems that the Camera is in Burst or Multi-Burst mode.

You may Initialize the Camera as follows:

Initializing the Camera will reset the settings of the Camera to the factory settings including date and time. It will not delete any data saved in the Camera.

Set the mode Dial on Camera. then, press the Menu button on the Camera. Then, select the SETUP menu and select the SETUP 1 option of the Camera. Then, select the Initialize option to OK.

Good Luck!!!!!!!!!!!

DSC-W55 movie camera video display problem

Your quality setting is probably set to the E-Mail quality. This makes the video low quality and tiny.

Just press the button that you use to delete pictures with the regular screen on and change the image quality.
