Do I need to take the camera in? I must be putting it in the wrong setting

    This sounds like the maximum synch speed. Check your flash settings.

    I had something similar happen with my D7100. I was partially stuck in a bracketing mode. The only thing that helped was to reset the camera to factory settings. I did this by holding the ISO button on the back off the camera and the {+/-} button by the shutter. The funny thing was it happened in the store where I bought it and three different people tried get it unstuck.

    What would be the default setting?

    FP 1/320 should be your setting for the flash in the menu ..this stands for flash programme and will allow it to sync at any speed if the flash is compatible ( all but SB400) this is not the same as the flash sync speed which should be 1/60

    ie in dark conditions with flash it will run at 1/60 ..if you leave your flash on outside (by mistake?) it will still sync at say 1/2000 and you wont get a blown out picture. been there done that ...

    Do a two button reset then look again.
    Always learning.

    Did the two button reset help?

    I've had some weird things happen before to me in the past when I forgot that I set the remote timer on the D7000 and left it there. It's because I've set it to fire 2 photos after 10 second timers. It's the cheapo version of the remote shutter trigger haha.

    I thought for a second that my camera had a mind of its own...

    The D7200 never ever go beyond 1/250 with flash activated because 1/250 is the maximum sync speed. Turn off your flash and the problem will go away. If you have a hot-shoe flash you can set it in manual and go beyond 1/250 bit your photos will have dark stripes at top or bottom from the shutter.
