My K20D problem

The Rear E-dial quit working today. Any lens, any mode. This will not fly!

Any Suggestions?

Sorry to hear that. I had the same thing happen to me on my K20d and then k-7 (intermittent). Some recommend trying contact spray. It may work for a bit but unfortunately you may have to send it in.

Do you have a grip?
Sometimes turning the wheels on the grip helps.
It happens at times that a wheel is hanging between two positions.

Maybe we should make a sticky about this. The same thing happened to me and the guys on the forum saved me.

A general "Trouble Shooting" sticky might be a good idea.
I'll look into it.
