K5 - would not allow adjustment of shutter speed

I've had my K5 for about three years an it has been trouble free, This morning when I turned it on and attempted to take photos in manual mode, it would not allow me to set shutter speed. I checked other modes. Worked fine in auto and A but in other modes would not allow adjustment of Shutter speed. After trying a number of different things I finally took the battery out of the camera (while on) and reinstalled it and everything returned to normal??!! Has anyone run into this problem? Is it common? Cause for concern?

The battery reset fixed it so I don't think there's a cause for concern. If it keeps happening consider a full factory reset of all menu options. At first, your description sounded like a broken front control dial, but removing the battery would not get that to start working again.

Thanks. I'll pay attention going forward. It was a shock when it happen because it has been so trouble free.
