I have a new D5000 and it has been taking very good action photos of sports events with the action sports setting. The photos were in focus. After my daughter got ahold of it, the settings seem to have changed and I am not sure how to get them back. I have been holding the camera steady without a tripod but that wasn't different than when I was taking photos earlier. The lens is a 200 mm. The shutter speed shows 1/30 with 1600 ISO. The photos were taken inside a gym. The lens auto focus is on. I there another setting in the menu that shows autofocus in the camera itself? If I choose the autofocus menu, it is confusing on what settings it should be on.

I hope someone can help. I will try to attach the photo (s) if I need to.
