I gave my camera to a friend for a few days. Now that I have it back I can take photos, but the menu, 4 way controller and the display button are all locked. When I try to use these options an orange padlock appears on my screen, has anyone else had this problem? Would anyone know how I can clear this so that I can use the menu and other features. I have been through the manual and can't seem to find anything regarding this problem. What would my friend have done to create this problem? Any help would be much appreciated.
