    I have been having an issue with the shooting mode lately. When I turn the camera on with the shooting mode set to say S, it will come on in a different mode. If in M and I pop the flash up it changes to ART mode. It jumps around a lot on what mode it's really in and it's starting to bother me.
    I have reset the camera to factory settings and it's still doing the same thing.

    Has anyone heard of anything like this happening and know if there's a fix for this issue?

    Thanks for looking

    Hi Mark,

    Sorry mate I have not experienced anything like that. How long have you had the camera?

    Could be a false contact on the mode dial? Maybe when you push the flash button you touch the dial and this is enough to switch mode.
    If so, you could try to turn the dial a few times, in both direction to see if something change.

    Gave it a shot, but still happens.

    Thanks to you both.

    If you assign MySets to the mode dial, it can change the mode. However, a reset should clear that.
