Question about Canon PowerShot TX1 Digital Camera
The wheel on the side lets you select the 4 modes.....1 - view picture, 2- take picture in normal mode, 3 - take pic's in manual mode, 4 - take pic's in scene selection mode.
The problem is when i move the wheel to position 2, it stays in mode 1. Then when i move the wheel to mode 3 it moves to mode 2. The when i move the wheel to mode 4, it still stays in mode 2.
I can not access mode 3 or 4.

After some inspecting of the camera it seen the issue lies with the lens, not the camera itself so don't go banging the camera up or you might damage some other part and the camera will be broken for real. Inside the lens is a closer which block the internal system from capturing image. The closer look just like the one you see before turning on your camera but it's smaller and it's inside the lens way in the far back. Look carefully and you'll see it - you will see the closer if your screen is black while in capture mode otherwise you will see a nice round glass (the internal lens for capturing image/video).
Think of if like this, imagine an eyeball with its eyelid close. That's what happened when the screen is black while in capturing mode.
HOW TO FIX IT: In order to fix the black screen while in capture mode and cost as little damage to your camera as possible, simply turn on the camera in either picture or video mode and look inside your lens, there should be a closer in the far back end. Gently hit the lens a few times until you don't see the closer no more and only a round glass and your camera should begins capturing image and video again.
Good luck to you all. And remember don't use anger to force your camera to works or you will regret it.

Oh my, sounds like you accidentally recorded in "Time Lapse" mode (one of the specialized video features of your camera). Unfortunately, there's no way to convert the already taken video back to "Standard" video with sound, I'm sorry. However, you'll obviously need to set your camera back to standard mode for future videos. Press the "Function" button while in video mode. Then press left/right to select "Standard" video.

Looks like you need to take this to a camera store and have them check it over. I don't know of any setting that would cause what you describe.
