I do not know the first thing about the menus and camera setup for those type of cameras.  I downloaded a manual.

And, I found the camera reset feature on page 104.

Your camera seems to be stuck in a long exposure shooting mode, or maybe it is special mode for photographing the Moon and night skies full of stars.  Clearing all camera settings with a [Reset All] should hopefully bring it back to “normal.”

I found the above on page 37, which tells you how to enter a “Scene Mode”.  You seem to be in Long Exposure mode.

Using Long Exposure mode is described on page 42.  Hope this helps.

Hi Johnwinn, thanks for posting.

 

Waddizzle is correct.

 

The Auto button is semi-programmable. Its "Auto" setting cannot be changed, but its second setting can be changed. To change it, press the AUTO button until you see the "Long Shutter" setting appears, then press the FUNC SET button. Now, scroll down to the Long Shutter icon, press the RIGHT Arrow button, then scroll up or down to choose "P", or any other (available) mode, as illustrated in Waddizzle's post.

 

Once you've selected your preferred mode, press the FUNC SET button to exit the menu.
