The dial on top that switches from portrait mode to action and other modes turns, but it seems to be "stuck" in portrait mode. The portrait icon shows on the lcd screen, and doesn't change when I turn the dial to other modes. And my pictures look terrible.

My flash seems to be stuck in the "suppressed" mode. Also the Manual on page 64 refers to a "turn" of the "command dial" to the "flash mode setting".

The flash modes do not display as described in the manual. I can't figure out how to get the flash to function properly again. I have made all my attempts with fre
