Question re shutter: on in menu, off in lcd display?

Hi there,
there's probably a simple explanation, but I'm stumped.
In the menu, I've got the Shutter set to 1/60.
But when I close the menu, the display info says the SHT (shutter) is off.
What's going on? Thanks,
Malcolm

Did you set the shutter-switch below the lens to on? Full-Auto off?

Is the "Shutter On/Off" switch at the lower front of the Camera in the off position?

thank you both! That switch was off (it's now on, and the lcd display shows as much) I appreciate the quick response.

Hey, Malcolm- if this were easy, everybody would be doing it.
You know, I was just struck with how amazing this all is- you pop up with a question in Canada, and in a couple of minutes get answers from Hawaii to Germany.
