Re: 1. Mode Dial not working, "Take-Picture-Button" not...
If the camera was dropped, then it's really causing those kinds of issues like mode dial and shutter button will not work.
But you could still try these steps below:
First, do the POWER RESET: - Turn off camera - Remove batteries for a minute - Reload batteries - Turn on camera
Second, do the MASTER RESET - Press on MENU button - Press on the right button until you see SETUP 2 - Scroll down until you see RESET - Press the right button to pick up on YES or NO - Press on OK/MENU button for changes to be saved - Turn off camera for a few seconds so that settings will be refreshed
Third, if it still does the same thing, then your camera needs to be repaired by a technician.
If you want to know where you could send it, just call the hotline of the manufacturer of your product so you could get assistance about this matter.

We bought a WB690 earlier this year and had the same problem within a couple of days. We replaced it at the shop and the new one was fine at first, but has recently started doing the same. It's as if the mode dial is working loose, and the slightest touch seems to make the mode graphic appear on the screen (usually just when you are about to take a picture) - very annoying! It's going back to the shop this week, which is a real shame as the camera is otherwise very good, especially the massive zoom.
That depends on what you want the command dial to do. If you're in either the Manual (M) or Shutter Priority (S) modes, the command dial will change the shutter speed. If you're in the Program (P) mode, the command dial will shift the program exposure. If you're in any other exposure mode, the command dial does nothing.
If you hold down the metering mode button, the command dial will change the exposure metering mode. If you hold down the exposure compensation button, the command dial will change the amount of the exposure compensation.
If you hold down the release mode button, the command dial will change the release mode.
If you hold down the AF button, the command dial will change the autofocus mode.
If you hold down the QUAL button, the command dial will change the image storage mode.
If you hold down the ISO button, the command dial will change the ISO.
If you hold down the WB button, the command dial will change the white balance setting.
If you're looking at the menus, the command dial will navigate the menu.
If you're reviewing pictures, the command dial will move to the previous or next picture.
Hope this helps. If you still have problems or other questions about this, please don't hesitate to reply to this post.
The date stamp feature on this camera will only work in postcard mode- resolution set to 2M (1600 x 1200) and compression set to fine. You have to set the picture mode to that first. You also have to set the date and time if it isn't set already.
To set the mode quickly, set the mode switch to camera, turn the mode dial to A (auto), then press Func. button, scroll down to the "L", scroll across to the mountains with the clock dial, then press the Disp. button to turn date prinitng on and off.
I have a similar Panasonic phone (KX_TGA101S). Someone must have inadvertently changed the dial mode on you. Here is how you change it on mine, which should be similar to yours. Hit the Menu button. Scroll down to "Set tel line" and hit the Menu Button (OK). If it isn't displayed, scroll to "Set Dial Mode" and hit the Menu Button. Select Tone instead of Pulse and hit the Menu Button. That should do it.
Do you mean you are expecting it to show the photo that you just took for a few seconds before it goes back to preview mode? There's a menu setting which I think is called "Picture Review" and you can set it for something like 0, 2 seconds, 5 seconds, something like that.
very good poss that camera needs mode dial switch assembly.Especially if unit was subject to liquids near the mode dial .part # 147966811 for silver and 147966821 for black model..First reset camera by pushing reset switch should be around batt compartment and or memory stick area.
I had a similar problem with my EOS 5, was trying to change between modes
and it made a lovely "snapping pencil" noise and then behaved as you
describe. I managed to get it done under warranty after a lot of moaning
and ****(it was 54 weeks old). After chatting to some camera shop
owners it seemed to be the most common problem with the EOS 5 (doesn't
happen often, just most common type of error). I could understand it if I
was going from the program modes to the creative modes where you have to
pass through the "lock" position, but I am sure that I wasn't. Anyway,
upshot was that it got fixed, works fine now, but when changing modes I
always depress the "lock" button, even if its not passing through the "lock"
position. Sorry, but the quick fix is pay the $75 which doesnt seem
unreasonable, or switch to a camera that doesnt use that type of switching
method, EOS3, EOS1, EOS D3 :-). Hope this helps to answer your question
needs replacement! In warranty no problem, otherwise you will have to pay maybe not too much. On your own you may try to disassemble it and try cleaning the contact brushes and metal stripes. Problem may be caused by dirt.
