Help! Mode Dial stuck?

is there a way to get the mode dial unstuck? the white button is pushed down (what seems like all the way down) but the dial wont budge. do i have to lubricate it or something? should i attempt to take the dial off?

K7? Try working it with an ink pen or something like that.

Welcome aboard by the way..

I guess I'm out of ideas then. The button on my K7 mode dial is black so I'm unsure of the button you are referring to. I Thought you might be able to jiggle it loose is all.

Good luck.

You are in way over your head with this camera. Drop back to an old XZ50 with a 28-105 lens and spend some time learning the electronics. K7s are notoriously complex, and in some ways they do too much with technology. For the $1000-1400+ you've invested you should only own the camera if you drive a BMW Sport, or if you are a very well paid professional photographer. = )! coastx/14 March 2011

If the camera is under warrantee get it dealt with that way. Otherwise try to find a nice camera repair chap who will sort it for you.
