Bulb setting in manual mode?

How do you turn bulb setting on and off in the manual mode on Canon 6D? It keeps showing up and I'm not sure what I pressed to make it happen and I can't for the life of me figure out how to turn it off.

Perhaps did C1 or C2 mode get activated inadvertently?

Not if he did a 'Clear ALL Settings'.

"Clear all camera settings" is somewhat of a misnomer. Custom functions and custom shooting modes are unchanged. See pages 57 and 58 of the camera manual.

OK, then he needs to go into 

 

Clear all Custom Func. (C.Fn.)    

This lets you set all these back to their defaults.

It doesn't clear the values you may have entered for AF Microadjustment, but it does set the 6D to ignore (DISABLE) them.

Unfortunately this is not the problem either. It appears that the mode dial is by communicating correctly with the camera. Instead of being able to switch to any of the modes I can only switch to B, P, C1p and C2p. Canon suggests sending it in for warranty repair (I've only had the camera for two weeks) but that was only after I tried all these resets. I was secretly hoping there was a chance to fix it without sending it in.

If resetting it didn't correct it, than by all means send it to Canon Service.  That is really all you can do.
