Warnin! Mode dial is not in the proper position

I keep getting this message everytime I turn the camera on. Can't find any troubleshooting answers on this subject. I tried taking out the batteries and letting it reset but it doesn't do a thing.

I used to have the same problem. Make sure the picture of the setting you are using on the turn dial is lined up with the beige pointer on the top of the camera. When you turn the dial, you can feel it lock into position. It could be that the dial hasn't quite clicked into the right position and just needs adjusting.

My camera when it turns on says ' Mode Dial Is not in the proper posistion ' I haven't dropped or anything! Will my warrinty cover it!?


Hi jayderehbein,

Make sure that the dial for selecting either video capture or image capture is not stuck somewhere in the middle , therefore a good idea would be try moving it to different positions and then back to the usual image mode and this message would go away ...

Hope this helps ..:) Your feed back would be appreciated.

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.

My fz28 is stuck in "mode dial is not in proper position'. How do I open the top and fix the problem? Thanks


My mode dial FZ28 is only loose and sometimes I get the same error message. A shop gave me this price for replacing the mode dial: around $100 for the mode dial, $25 for the man-work (French prices). But I don't know if it can be repaired (not changed). If you have fixed yours, any idea will be apreciated. Thanks;

Problem with my camera


Sounds as though the mode dial is "freewheeling", i.e. it is turning...but is not revolving the wiper/selector below. Workshop job.

Card Error


This is from Konicas site. don't know if this will be any help for you since you had posted a long time ago. you most like have a new camera by now. anyway. Question: When a CompactFlash is loaded, a message of "Card Error. OK" appears and remains on the monitor display. Answer: Please follow the procedure below. While the message is displayed, press the center of the controller. The monitor display and data panel will turn off. Turn the Main Switch dial to OFF position and remove the CompactFlash from the camera. - When "No Card" message appears next time when the camera is activated in the recording mode, the camera and CompactFlash are OK. - When "Card Error. OK" appears again, the CompactFlash may be faulty. Use other card.
