Re: nikon f90x command dial
It would need to be professionally serviced as it sounds like an electronics issue. However, you might want to consider how cost effective that would be as used F90S and F90X bodies are selling for $50 - $60 right now.

In the manual and shutter-priority modes (set the dial to "M" or "S"), turn the command dial to change the shutter speed. In the aperture-priority mode (set the dial to "A"), turning the command dial changes the aperture and the camera will set the shutter speed appropriately.
If you need a manual, you may download a copy from here.
That depends on what you want the command dial to do. If you're in either the Manual (M) or Shutter Priority (S) modes, the command dial will change the shutter speed. If you're in the Program (P) mode, the command dial will shift the program exposure. If you're in any other exposure mode, the command dial does nothing.
If you hold down the metering mode button, the command dial will change the exposure metering mode. If you hold down the exposure compensation button, the command dial will change the amount of the exposure compensation.
If you hold down the release mode button, the command dial will change the release mode.
If you hold down the AF button, the command dial will change the autofocus mode.
If you hold down the QUAL button, the command dial will change the image storage mode.
If you hold down the ISO button, the command dial will change the ISO.
If you hold down the WB button, the command dial will change the white balance setting.
If you're looking at the menus, the command dial will navigate the menu.
If you're reviewing pictures, the command dial will move to the previous or next picture.
Hope this helps. If you still have problems or other questions about this, please don't hesitate to reply to this post.

If you're using a lens with an aperture ring, simply set the exposure mode to Manual or Aperture priority and change the aperture by turning the aperture ring on the lens. In Aperture priority the camera will set the shutter speed appropriately, in Manual you have to determine the appropriate shutter speed. If you want to use such a lens in Shutter priority or one of the Program modes, you must set the aperture to its smallest setting (largest f/number) and lock it.
If you're using a lens without an aperture ring then it's a bit harder. You can only use the camera in Shutter priority or one of the Program modes. You turn the command dial on the camera to change the exposure, and the aperture will change. If you want to use an exposure different than what the meter suggests, you can adjust it by using either exposure compensation or changing the ISO setting (or both).
If you need a manual, you can download one from http://butkus.org/chinon/nikon/nikon_n6006af/nikon_n6006af.htm
In Programmed (P), Shutter-priority (S), and Manual (M) modes, turn the main command dial (the one in the back). In Aperture-priority (A) mode, turning the subcommand dial (the one in the front) controls the aperture and changes the shutter speed to suit.
This all assumes you haven't gone into the menus and switched the functions of the two command dials.
Your camera is either fully automatic or fully manual. In addition it has shutter priority and aperture priority semi-automatic functions. With shutter prior. you pick the shutter speed you prefer and the camera will adjust the aperture. With Aperture prior it works the other way around. The exposure will be always the optimum (decided by the camera program). You can adjust these automatics with the program dial.
