I'd say you could have it worse: stuck in green mode would be dreadful.

What a coincidence! His camera was also stuck in M mode. Makes me wonder if this is a firmware design: when the mode dial does not work properly, the camera is set to M so that the user can still use the camera normally.

If it is a fail-over mode, that would be something new and novel. Is your camera still under warranty?

It does seem to be a fail-over mode. On my k-30, with the top cover completely off and mode dial disconnected, camera stays in M mode.

I recently had this problem on my K3. I tried all the obvious stuff like changing lenses, factory reset, fully charged battery, etc to no avail. Fortunately it was still within warranty and I sent it back for repair. The mode dial circuit board assembly required repair and now it is back working fine again.
