Hi Barney,

Try setting up the TV setting you would like to use - then open up the menu and 
go to the SET UP Section (yellow spanner icon section) and find the Custom 
Shooting mode - save your TV setting into one of the Custom Shooting Modes 
(C1-C3). Now close the menu and turn the mode dial to the Custom Shooting Mode 
you saved your TV setting to and give it a go. If it works fine you can now 
just turn the dial to this setting to use TV mode - you can choose any shutter 
speed you like, but if the camera is turned off or left idle for your standard 
stand-down time it will revert to the shutter speed you saved in the menu - 
easy to change if you find you’re using a different shutter speed for some 

If it works as it normally should, I’d say you have an issue with the TV 
setting, if it is still playing up then there’s likely and issue with your 
camera’s software, so I’d try going online and loading your camera with the 
latest operating system - or reloading the one you have. It isn’t hard if you 
just follow the instructions in your manual. If this doesn’t fix it I can’t 
think of anything else, but a visit to the repair shop…..

All the best,
