Do any other 300D owners accidentally rotate their mode dial when they switch off?

    Mine sometimes moves from "P" to "Tv" when I switch off, which can be
    a bit of a surprise when I next use the camera. Since I'm not yet
    disciplined enough to rigorously check all settings before commencing
    shooting, I've resorted to keeping the exposure in Tv mode a couple of
    seconds long - that way it's usually immediately obvious that I'm in
    the wrong mode. ;)

    no, but i am pissed off that theres no display icon for what mode you
    are in.. night time shootings a barsterd when you accdently flick that dial.

    You can rotate the dial to adjust the settings which will tell you what mode
    you are in.
    If aperture changes then youre in av, if exposure length then tv. Manual is
    trickier but can be done.
    Yes I have done the above as well :)
    I also do it when I put the camera into its bag (Lowepro AW Mini?)

    It is an error in the chip of the camera. I think it is a ID=10.T error

    So you're saying a chip inside the camera causes the phantom physical
    rotation of the mode switch... if you don't mind, may I ask what you
    are/were smoking? :)
