MY mode-selection switch glitches

My mode selector switch thinks i'm turning it when i'm not. it's VERY annoying and will "switch modes" while im reviewing photos in "playback" mode. it will also switch it up while i'm trying to take a photo!

i'm hoping its just dusty, should i squirt some "electronic switch lube" in there? i dont want to Fubar my camera but sony didn't fix it when i sent it in....

    This started a few weeks ago. Is there any solution?

  • lazyd Mar 25, 2008

    i chatted with sony about this and they suggested i re initialize the camera. (all settings are lost). i did so and it seems to work for now.

    ugh i have the same problem too! should i just move on from this camera? i've loved it up until now!

  • puntel Feb 19, 2009

    I had the same problem and the solution of "Initialize" worked!!
    Menu -> Setup -> Setup 1 -> Initialize -> OK

    All settings will be restored the default values, but nothing hard to configure again, right?!

    Thanks!

I have a Sony DSC W100 and had a similar problem. On one of these post there was a solution which worked for me. It stated to reset the camera and on the Sony if it is a reset button, it was located inside the battery/memory card slot. It is located to the left of the memory slot a little gray dot.

Codes 1826, 1825 and 1819. Car wont start. Do we need to remove trans to reset? Trans was used.


DTC P1819
Internal Mode Switch-No Start/Wrong Range

DTC P1825
Internal Mode Switch - Invalid Range

DTC P1826
Internal Mode Switch C Circuit High Voltage

The transmission internal mode switch (IMS) is a sliding contact switch attached to the selector detent inside the transmission side cover. The four inputs to the PCM indicate the position of the transmission range selector. The input voltage level at the PCM is high (B+) when the IMS is open and low when the switch is closed to ground. The four input parameters represented are Signals A, B, C and P (Parity). Refer to Transmission Internal Mode Switch Logic

Install a Scan Tool . A professional scan tool !
Turn ON the ignition, with the engine OFF.
Important: Before clearing the DTC, use the Scan Tool in order to record the Freeze Frame and Failure Records. Using the Clear Info function erases the Freeze Frame and Failure Records from the PCM.
Record the DTC Freeze Frame and Failure Records.
Clear the DTC.
Select IMS on the Scan Tool .
Place the gear select lever in PARK range, then move to NEUTRAL range.
Does each range selected match the Scan Tool IMS display?
.Replace the lever assembly-manual shaft detent with internal mode switch.
Refer to Transmission Overhaul in the 4T65-E Section of the Transmission Unit Repair Manual.

I have a 2004 Buick Regal LS. The transmission indicator in dash says its in Drive but the car is in Park and wont start. It started when I tried starting it after going to the store. At first the car...


It's probably a bad internal mode switch . The sensor is input to the PCM - engine computer .
The lever assembly-manual shaft detent with internal mode switch (IMS) is a sliding contact electrical switch assembly that corresponds to the PRNDL position selected. Each of the PRNDL positions has a unique ground pattern on four wires from the PCM.
The assembly consists of two major components:
• The internal mode switch that consists of:
- The housing (1), which makes up the stationary contacts.
- The insulator (2), which makes up the moving contacts and is secured on the detent lever (4).
• The lever assembly which consists of:
- The manual shaft (3)
- The detent lever (4)
The range detection is accomplished by securing the moving contacts to the detent lever. When the driver selects a PRNDL position, the detent lever inside the transmission rotates. This rotates the insulator which in turn grounds the four wires in a unique pattern for each gear selection, corresponding to the PRNDL position selected. The IMS is electrically connected by five wires (four of which the PCM supplies voltage to and one wire that is a common ground) to the transmission pass through connector.

MY DISTRABUTION DIAL FOR DEF.,VENT, ETC IS IN DEFROST AND WON'T CHANGE. THE DIAL TURNS BUT NOTHING CHANGES. I NEEN SOME ADVICE ON WHAT TO DO TO FIND PROBLEM AND FIX. THANKS GENO


Here is the info. I hope the pictures show up. please rate assistance. thx.

Air distribution within the vehicle is determined by the function selector switch position. Two airflow mode doors are used to direct airflow within the heater core and evaporator core housing. The function selector switch/cable assembly is used to position these airflow mode doors. Refer to Section 412-00 for description and operation of each of the system functions.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Function Selector Cable Assembly
The function selector cable assembly moves the airflow mode doors to the desired position using a 2-sided pull-pull type cable assembly. The function selector controls the cable movement. The end of the cable assembly attaches to the airflow mode door/temperature blend door actuating assembly which transfers the cable movement to the 2 airflow mode doors.
An electrical switch is incorporated into the function selector to notify the A/C switch assembly if DEFROST or FLOOR/DEFROST is selected. When DEFROST or FLOOR/DEFROST is selected, the A/C switch assembly will disable the RECIRC request button and send an A/C request to the powertrain control module (PCM) regardless of the A/C request button indicator ON/OFF status.

Only about half the modes work on mode selector dial


Sounds to me like the internal contacts aren't working correctly. Let your local camera store take a look. Hope it's under warranty.

Canon eos 400d mode dial does not select modes


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.

Wont take photos outside


The symptoms you're describing could be caused by either the "Fireworks" special scene selection mode, or manual mode with too much exposure compensation. Look at your mode selector (back of the camera, upper left hand corner). Is the mode set to the still image setting (pointing at the liittle red camera)? Or is it set to special scene selection (SCN)?

If you are unintentionally in SCN mode, to get it out of "Fireworks", just turn the mode selector dial to select "still image" (pointing at the little red camera). Or you can also select an SCN mode more appropriate for outdoors. Just turn the dial to SCN, press the FUNC button, then press the left/right arrow buttons to select Portrait, Beach, Snow etc...

But if your mode selector is already in still image selection, then check to make sure that you're not in "Manual" picture mode. Turn the mode selector dial to "still picture mode" (pointing at the little red camera), then press the "FUNC" button. Now look at the bottom of the screen. If it says "Manual", press the "left" button controller once to select and put the camera in "Auto" still picture mode.

DSC-W100 "Shaky Hand" icon and taking infrequent pictures


You restarted it by turning it off and on again?

Try re-initializing your camera. Menu --> Setup 1 --> Initialize "OK"

I hope that helps.

As for switching back to camera mode, that could be your selector switch. Mine is weird to, it takes pics fine but the selector switch is touchy and thinks i'm turning it when I'm not. It does this most often in Auto mode, probably because I use it most. You might try putting it in another mode before reviewing pics.
