Default Canon S95 mode dial issue

Hey guys,

My beloved S95 has just started to play up when I try to change mode settings. Here is my problem:
- When dial is at AV, camera sets to AUTO
- When dial is at P or TV, camera sets to C

I wouldn't care if it was doing this for most other modes as I only really use AV and Movie (and sometimes low light), however not having AV/TV is extremely annoying (well, I theoretically still have AV as my custom mode was set to AV)!

Has anyone experienced this or have ideas about how to fix this?

Things tried to date:
- Looked for updated firmware (camera is running firmware 1.00E), doesn't seem to be anything more recent
- Tried taking it apart to look for obvious signs of damage, everything looks fine

I don't really want to try a factory reset as it would clear my C setting, meaning I would lose the option to shoot in AV mode for sure!

Thanks in advance for any help.

I had a similar problem with an SX220... I couldn't use AV or TV.... annoying as I tend to use these modes most of all...!!
On the SX220 I figured it wasn't worth the repair costs- and sold it on as an "Auto" only shooter.... the new owner was happy...!!!
