Mode dial lock doesn't work - Cameras

    I have a SONY Cyber-shot DSC-W30 digital camera. The mode dial turns on it's own. So, for example, if I'm shooting a movie, the dial will switch it to "landscape" or "soft snap" mode on it's own.

    Also, if I'm in playback mode, the mode dial will turn and stop playback.

    Do you know of a solution for this?

When I put the canon D70 in the manual shooting mode, i cannot change the dials like previous


Make sure there isn't a dial lock feature engaged. In some models, you can lock out the dials to prevent accidental changes while shooting.

How do you set the aperture


Set the exposure mode to M and turn the command dial.
If that doesn't work, try telling us the model of your Nikon camera so someone can give you more exact instructions.

You need to set the shooting mode. Press the shooting mode dial lock button and turn the shooting mode dial to the desired setting. The self-timer is marked with a one-handed clock.

Nikon camera D300 mirror up/down shutter permanently up


Please check whether the mode dial is on 'Mup' or 'Lv'. If it is, then the camera is on mirror lock-up position (Mup) or LiveView mode (Lv). Mup is mirror lock-up and Lv is LiveView. It could be in Lv mode if you can see the image on the LCD, but not through the viewfinder. If it is on Mup mode, both the viewfinder and the LCD will be blank. If any of these is selected, pressing down the mode dial lock, rotate the dial to 'S' mode.

I have a Emerson DECT 6.0 with 3 head sets and i cant get the dial tone back from pulse.


It was easy for my Emerson Dect 6.0 to be switched either rotary / pulse by just pressing the "FLASH" button for 3 seconds until it beeped. Problem solved.

Or if that doesn't work, you have to:

Tone/Pulse
You can switch the dial mode. In most situations the TONE option should be selected.

• Press the MENU button. Select BASE using <FLASH - or - CID> and press the MENU button again.

• Using <FLASH - or - CID> select DIAL MODE and press the MENU button.

• Using <FLASH - or - CID> select TONE or PULSE and press the MENU button.

OR

Press and HOLD the "<FLASH" button for approximately 3 seconds. T (Tone) or P (Pulse) appears in the display.

Sony DSC W7 control dial defect


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
