I felt to ask, are you sure people, when front wheel is not responsive, is there a possibility you in the menu or AE-locked or playback modes? If you are in one of these wheels won't work. For instance when AE-lock time-out then let the wheel work again. Or a re-half press will do (on my K-7).

Just keep turning the dial back and forth for a few minutes (like the way you clean those old mechanical film cameras' dials), the problem would go away. It's a new camera, probably need some burn-in time
Thanks, will give that a try

No possibility.

As mentioned in my first post the K10D is fine with both wheels working as they should, the K20D was ok as well.

My K5 had the dame problem at first but now that I have some 2000 exposures and a whole lot of "playing/manipulating" it has cease to be a problem. As someone suggested using it a little seems to fix some at least.

I love this beast. Makes shooting much more fun again.
