Stuck in A mode?

Goodevening all,

I have a problem with my Leica M8.
Like the title says it seems like it is stuck in A mode.
It seems as something with the shutterspeed dial is wrong, because if I turn it, it mostly shows the shutterspeed the camera chooses but sometimes while moving and pushing the dial slightly, the correct light metering mode appears (the arrows and a dot).

I also updated to the last firmware.

Are some of you known with this problem, or something I could be doing wrong all of a sudden?

Any help is much appreciated.

Thank you for reading.

M8.2 I guess? In that case you have set the camera to S mode. Read the manual.

Pity, now you have a problem. You'll have to send the camera in.

Have you tried to remove everything removable (lens, battery, memory card)? Besides is the speed shown correct?

Anyway good luck!
