How do I set my Canon EOS Rebel T3i 18 MP CMOS Digital SLR to auto mode


If you mean the auto exposure mode, turn the mode dial on the top of the camera to the "A+" position, between the "P" and the lightning bolt.
If you mean autofocus, set the switch on the lens to the AF position if the lens has an autofocus switch. On the camera, press the AF button (cursor-right) then turn the command dial to select the desired mode.
If you mean the auto white balance, press the WB button (cursor-up) then turn the command dial to select the desired mode.
In the auto exposure mode the ISO mode is set to auto, and you can't change this.

I have a Lumix DMC-LC50 When I turn it on it says: Mode dial is not in the proper position I tried everything


The mode dial is the knurled knob on the top of the camera - if you didn't already know. This same error message displayed when the knob is between selection. If you have moved the know to a valid position - where it stops in a detent, the message should clear from the display and be able to take pictures.

If moving the mode dial so that it rests in a detent and the message is still displayed, it indicates a problem with the switch inside the camera (that is operated when the mode dial is rotated). This is not a user serviceable part, and should be professionally repaired. I found United Camera to list a Mode Dial repair to be $42. there are plenty of others that can make this repair for you, too - this was simply the first I saw that had a price (I have never done business with nor am I affiliated with United Camera in any way).

I hope this is a good starting point for you & good luck. Please rate my reply - thanks.

When you turn it on the screen displays "mode dial in not in the proper position." Mode dial does not turn properly.


Something seems to be broken or off between the mode dial and the switch. It also may have broken internal parts.
I have had a camera with a similar problem. It was that the small switch inside was broken, and could not be repaired.
These mode switches can be changed, but will require a digital camera repairman to do such a job. It also could be sold for parts/repair on a site such as Ebay.

Panasonic DMC-TZ1 operates in Playback mode only


Hi,

The position from the dial wheel is not corresponding with the electrical position. If you can do it by yourself you can adjust it and tighten the midscrew from the dialwheel

Can't adjust aperature in manual mode.


1. Check the power switch is pointing to the rear dial (not "ON") or you wont be able to set your aperture.
2. Try shooting one image for each position of the mode dial on the top. Then review each image to see what mode the camera indicates the image was taken.(Pressing info during playback will bring up detailed information to show this) If the recorded setting and actual setting dont match, this indicates a fault with the dial.
3. If the camera does not display an aperture, or shows "00" then there is a communication fault with the lens. Check the contacts are clean and sitting correctly. You can confirm this lens is at fault by trying another lens on your camera,I'm sure a photo store could help with this.
Good luck!
