    I've just taken out my camera to discover that the rear dial which controls the aperture and shutter speed doesn't seem to be working any more.

    Hi Chris, yes I have tried in all the settings which should allow changes but no joy. It's a dial on the back of the camera olybacker, more recent model than the joystick one I think.

    Try taking the battery out for 24 or more hours to clear memories...

    Forgot to say to go into the Setup Menu/ Reset and reset it back to Factory defaults as well. Make a note of your favourite settings first...
