Any other way to change...

from record mode to vcr mode without using the main switchy thing?
I dropped my camera and it just stopped working, and I got the error E:61:3 or something like that. I banged it really hard and it started working again, although the main switch for changing modes is still broken. I can only record. Any suggestions?

Hello Daniel. Even if there was another way, would you really want to?

1. you dropped the camera and it broke

-- it should have been repaired or replaced at this point --

2. you intentionally banged the camera, braking it even futher

-- that was something you really should not have done, it is quite feasible you just made the repair a lot more expensive --

The camera should be serviced / repaired. If that is too expensive (versus
a new camera, I have no idea what this particular camera costs new) you
should get a new one.

Why? Because even if you do get it to work the camera is unreliable. More
can (and probably will) break and this will no doubt happen at a time you
do not want it to happen. Better make sure you get the problems sorted
before you do any serious shooting with it.

Good luck!
