Camer scrolls through modes all on its own! sony DSC W100 digital camera

Can anyone help solve this problem. When I switch my camera on it wants to change its mode all the time. If i put it on any mode, say video, it will scroll randomly through all the modes the moment I touch the camera body (very strange). This is the same for all modes and picture playback too. It makes taking a picture very difficult.
If any can help I would very thankful.

    Cheers for getting back so quick. I had lost the manual and didn't even know about the reset button,haha. Pressing that alone seems to have solved the prob!! If it starts again i will source the suggested part. Thanks again.

There is no reset button on this model Sony
DSC -W100, the gray thing near the battery / memory is the acces lamp. Reseting the camera using function "initialize" from the menu it seems to work.
