Question about Toshiba PDR-M500 Digital Camera
After using my Toshiba PDR-M500 for 3 years, I haven't experienced any problems. Lately, it's been cranky, especially with the mode dial. It reads the "playback" setting as "downloading to computer"--that is, if it reads it at all. (When it doesn't read, it's just a blank screen.) It reads the "manual photo" setting as "movie" and won't read the "automatic setting" at all. Once in a while, it refuses to turn on or off. The "tools menu", "download to computer" and "movie" settings consistently function, but it doesn't do much good for taking stills. The crazy thing is that if I turn on the camera in "movie" mode, then switch the mode dial to "manual" or "automatic" it stays in "movie" mode until I go to "playback". Suggestions? Time to get a new camera?
I read in another Toshiba forum where some users were putting a small piece of electriacal (black) tape over the flash sensor, and their indoor photos with flash turned out spectacular, since it allows the camera to apply more light . Actually fools the camera but it works. You might want to experiment with it..

there should be a control on the set at the panel to switch this over to video. Might be in a door area or right up front if not U will to obtain a remote
