    The +/- is to increase or decrease something, Shutter speed, Aperture, ISO...

    Turn the command dial to S mode, that is Shutter priority, then set your shutter speed.

    Your camera does not have full manual control, which means you cannot manually change the shutter speed or aperture value. The shutter speed is completely up to the camera to decide. It basically decides this by the amount of light that is available.

    The +/- button is for exposure compensation, not shutter speed. However, adjusting it can force the camera to use a different aperture & shutter speed .

    Adjusting the ISO will also get the camera to adjust the shutter speed.

    To make all of the above adjustments you will have to use 'Program AE' mode.

    And using the various Scene modes will also apply a different shutter speed according to the lighting conditions & aperture it applies.

    However, as I said before, you cannot manually set a specific shutter speed of your choice.
