Re: stuck on movie standby

The ribbon cable for the top switches has come loose.Undo the four screws holding the LCD screen (two are special--I used the corner of a small flat screwdiver), then gently prise the camera apart and try not to dissconnect the ribbon cable for the menu buttons --it's a pain to get back on again.
Gently ease the ribbon cable for the top switches further into the socket and all shout be well---if it is hard to move flip open the black locking flap on the socket

I took the ****** apart and found two spring-loaded black triangular plastic pieces poking out of two rectangular chips about 2mm square, just below the circular piece on the outside of the camera that changes mode – play, video, camera. Actually I found one of the above, because the second triangular piece was stuck in the closed position. A bit of jiggling and voila the problem was fixed.
That was the good news. The other news is that I must now reinsert inside of the shell a black circular piece of plastic that affixes to the rotating circular piece on the outside of the camera that changes the mode. When properly attached this circular piece manipulates the triangular pieces to change the mode.
I think that the likelihood of getting this piece properly aligned and affixed so that it moves the triangular pieces properly when the mode knob is rotated falls into the statistical probability range of pork taking wing. But worth a try.

Camera stuck in movie mode

press menu button, left or right arrow button until you come upon REC Mode. Choose option Normal. Yours is on Multiburst and that is causing your problem. Changing it to Normal should fix it.

Samsung D75 digital camera. Having taken a clip in movie mode, I have a 'standby' message on the LCD screen. Can't seem to get rid of it to take another clip. When I press shutter button I just get a bleep...

Problem resolved. My own stupid operating fault. It appears that, in movie mode, you don't just press the shutter button to start a shot, you have to hold it down for a moment. Not made clear in user manual, but I should have twigged earlier.
Thanks for your contact/help.

My camera is stuck on movie mode

It appears that the software crashed. Take the batteries and the memory card out, press the on/off button as if you are turning the camera on (this is to drain any residual power in the camera). Leave it for a few moments (10-20 seconds) then put the batteries and the card back in and restart the camera. If the camera has a reset button or reset hole try this too. Good luck.
