Frustrated with Sony Alpha

by ImmortalOne / March 23, 2008 12:22 PM PDT

I purchased a Sony Alpha not too long ago, and recently my child was playing with it while I was at work. Well now the shutter speed is supper slow when not using the flash, meaning that without the flash I am losing all kinds of great pictures because it takes too long to capture.

I am sure it is just a setting in the camera, but I really need to know how to fix this before I give up. Any help would be great, thanks!

Check the User Manual and look for a camera reset command.
That will reset everything back to factory settings.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
