M7 does not work in auto

I kept my M7 in "Auto" (i.e. aperture priority) mode for quite some time. The other day I took it out of auto and manually selected shutter speeds, I used the > . < in the viewfinder as a rough reference for exposure but wanted to try the manual shutter mode.


Now when I switch the camera back into auto, it will not allow the shutter to release.


If I turn the camera off and then back on, the ISO reading is as normal (no blinking) but in order to make an image I must turn the shutter dial manually, or adjust the aperture. It appears to be stuck in manual mode.


I tried replacing the batteries to no avail.


Am I forgetting something, or does it have to go back to Leica for service (blah!)? If I send i back, any idea what replacing the DX contacts with the optical DX reader might cost. I bought the camera new in December 2004 so my Passport has expired.
