When I turn the camera on and press the button to take a picture, I get 60 - - showing up in the digital screen. How do I fix that? What is causing it? I have 400 speed film in the camera and it is set on P/ASM.
It's the shutter speed. I copied this out of the manual :
The number 60, or 125, displayed in the data panel stands for 1/60th or 1/125th of a second. • Usable apertures will depend on the aperture range of the lens you are using. • The seconds indicator appears in the viewfinder and data panel if the shutter speed is one second or longer.
Albeit copy and paste made it fit weird into here.

Depending of your use of the tripod, (meaning, if your a professional photographer, or just a hobbiest = how much money your willing to invest to fix it!) there are a couple things you can do.
Purchase a clamp on head for your tripod. There are many on the web to choose from.
Or: (if you want to truly McGuyver it)
Take off the the screw so the tripod head is flat then use double stick velcro tape. Put one half on the bottom of your camera and the other on the flat part of the tripod. That will do the job for the hobbiest with for very littel money.
