HV20 HELP...Can't get manual exposure to work!

For some reason, when have the camera set on the shutter priority, when I try manually control the exposure, the + and - are grayed out and thus give me no control of the exposure.

Does anyone have any ideas as to what I am doing wrong here?

Thanks in advance for any help!
Paul

Paul,

For some reason, exposure can be turned off and on, maybe to keep from changing it accidentally.

Push the joystick button to get the menu than toggle down to EXP. Then just hit the joystick up once and it will turn it on. Hit it up again and it will turn it off.
