Default Setting Sony HX9V shutter speed

In "manual" mode, I can't get the shutter speed on my HX9V to go slower than 1/4 second, and it's supposed to go as slow as 30 seconds. I've read the manual and it has nothing beyond the general "how to" info....I already know "how to", but the setting won't go beyond 1/4 second.

Any ideas?

I already know how the procedure is done using the control wheel. I'm saying that doing it by the book (using the control wheel to highlight the shutter speed and then choose a desired speed), the options never go below 1/4 second. I simply don't get any option slower than 1/4 second. In other words, I can't choose a shutter speed of one second or slower, down to 30 seconds.

Welcome to the board steve6163 -

Make sure you have "Burst Mode" set to "Single".

That should do it.
