Does anyone know how to get a Nikon D5500 out of movie mode?

I have a Nikon D5500, and I made the mistake of changing some settings in Movie mode to see what they would do. Now I can't get it out of the movie mode. When I switch to Manual mode, I can't adjust the shutter speed below 1/60 second. If I try, the video camera icon and 1/60th of a second lights up under it, and it refuses to let me adjust it any slower. And all the icons around the perimeter of the monitor pertain to movies, not photos. There has to be a way to return it to photo mode, but I can't find anything about it in the manual, nor online.

If you know, please inform me. This is very frustrating.

I am not a Nikon user, but I believe if you simply take it out of live view it will no longer be in movie mode.

Now if you wish to shoot in live view, there may be something else that needs to be done. I don't know. But it has to be in live view to take movies, so taking it out of live view should help.

Does the TF actually know about the soda cans and PVC pipe from 30 years ago?

I've tried that multiple times. Also, turned it off, taken the battery out and let it sit for a while before turning it back on. I've reset it, and tried again and again, but when it's in Manual, and I turn on the Live View again, it is still in movie mode and won't let me adjust the shutter speed slower than 1/60th of a second, nor any other function for regular photography. There's also nothing I can find in the manual about exiting Movie Mode. Lots of information about taking movies, but not how to exit.

Hopefully some-one will be able to solve your problem.

If not, you might consider doing a factory reset - you will lose all of your setting that were not the defaults but may be quicker in the end.

"To restoring Nikon D5500 to its factory settings, just hold down the [Menu button] button and the [Information button] button together, until the control panel turns off briefly while the camera resets itself to the factory default settings.
Caution! Be sure that you want to do this. Do not use this function unless you are certain that you want to do this."

Thanks... I was desperate enough to have already tried that.... two or three times - then went back and reset it with my preferred settings.

I think I found out what was causing the problem, though. There is a setting in the movie setup for Manual Settings. I don't remember turning it on, but I turned it off, and my Live View was back to working with photos. There are still a bunch of icons all around the screen that weren't there before, but at least it works now. Maybe if I keep trying things, I can get rid of all the icons, too.

Appreciate the suggestions... Thanks
