Question about Sony Handycam DCR-TRV240E Digital Camcorder

DCR-TRV238E handycan Sel/Push Exec scrolls through only the first two items in the menu list

I own Sony DCR-TRV238E camcorder. It works very perfectly all these while. Just yesterday I picked it and inserted the battery and there was a slight problem with it which I couldnt solve. The problem is that when you press the MENU button, there is some button down at the rare of the camera left below the battery which is used to scroll through the menu, unfortunately it is able to select only the first two items at the top of the menu that appears. Which means it will cycle between only those two items ( eg. top down, top down) so long as you keep rolling the button instead of going through the menus to the bottom. The same button is used to enter when you want to select something from the menus. When you press it to enter it works alright but when you want to select something which is lets say the third item in the menu and bellow, forth, fith ect. it is not able to scroll down apart from the first and the second items.

I thought of resetting it but my fears is that I still have my last setting in it which means I can shoot somehow with it and if after the resetting it still doesnt permit me to go through the entire menu my problems will rather be compounded. I dont know, may be I have touched something somewhere which has resulted to this. Please help me to correct it.

Counting very much on you (Sony)
Thanks

How do I change from LP to SP ?


for the dcrtrv320 here's how you do it.ensure you have the power switch set to camera/vtr. press the menu button. will give you little icons on the screen (you should see manual set or vtr set). scroll down to the icon the looks like a tape (tape set). use the sel/push exec dial (it's the dial near the menu button,bottom of the viewfinder and left side of the batt) you scroll it up/down and push it in to confirm your selection.in tape set you have rec mode (press sel/push exec dial in)scroll to sp and press sel/push exec dial again to confirm setting. press menu to exit menu settings. hope this helps.thanks :)

Changing my record mode from SP to LP


In order to change the menu settings you must 1.)turn on the power 2.) Touch FN to display PAGE 1. 3.) Touch MENU to display menu. Use the arrow buttons to scroll until the TAPE SET menu is highlighted. Press the exec button to reveal SP in RECORD MODE. Press it again to bring up a menu that will give you the choice of SP or LP. When you're done press the exec. button a couple of times and you're done. Do Keep that even though the tape will run 1.5 its normal length there are certain features that cannot be used while in Long Play (LP) mode. I have a sony camera but was looking at your model camera yesterday. I noticed that many of the menus and navigations were the same. I'm assuming that my directions will at least allow you to know what menu to look for. Good Luck.
P.B.
