Shutter stuck on auto / HM600

Hi.
I don't know if i pressed some weird combination of buttons or what, but my shutter is stuck in auto mode. I can adjust AE when i press manual, but the shutter still has the little "A" besides it and i can't set it manualy.
I've updated the firmware and reseted the cam, but still no help.
Did i press something, or should i bring it to the store for repairs? :/

Re: Shutter stuck on auto / HM600

I have had the same problem and it turned out to be my misunderstanding of how the toggle is set up. Unfortunately the camera is at home right now and I can't remember the button combination that throws the camera into full manual shutter. When I get home tonight, if somebody here hasn't already told you, and try to figure out how to describe it.

Re: Shutter stuck on auto / HM600

Press "Shutter" and the auto shutter turns off but set at the shutter timing that auto left it at. Unfortunately the shutter speed disappears from the display at this point. Now here is where I would get befuddled but to get manual control over the shutter press the center button in the four way toggle above the shutter button. The shutter speed shows up again on the on screen display but now highlighted. At this point pressing the up or down toggle will change the shutter speed. Pressing the center button will lock the shutter where you selected it.
