Thanks for all the replies. The mode selector does turn, but nothing changes. It seems to click properly into position, but I don't think that's the problem.
I'm looking at the schematics and I didn't see any place for a third battery internal to the camera.
I guess I'll start looking into the hack aspect and see if I can find any way to back out the hack software.
Thanks again, I'll pass on the final result, when and if that happens.
Check page 171 of your manual and it explains how to remove the date/time battery. It's a button cell that holds your personal settings, date/time, last mode used, etc. It's basically the same as the PRAM backup battery on computers. Remove this battery, let sit a spell and it resets. Sometimes the PRAM code gets scrambled and resetting it forces a reload of fresh code. Fixed my gear many times...
