The sub command rubber dial at the front of my Nikon D2X has become somewhat difficult to turn when my hands perspire. I often have to use my fingernail to get a good grip on it or my finger slips off of it. What can I use to clean it? Otherwise it works fine.All of the other similar dials work fine but they are not used nearly as ofter as the subcommand dial.

On top of the camera body, on left side(as your using it, there are 2 buttons. Not the one that says bkt, but the other one is pressed and whiloe pressed rotate the command dial until a circle with an arrow at approximatley 11 o;clock show on the LCD screen. Timer can then be used. To cancel, Press button and rotate command dial to normal.
One suggestion is to use a can of compressed air and blow the air into the small gap between the command dial and the body. That might free up any gunk that has become lodged there.
If it continues you'll have to send it in for service, unfortuately. The good news is that Nikon will clean and tune-up the entire camera, including the sensor. You'll be without your camera for a few weeks, but it should come back good as new.
i have little faith that this can be done, as i tried doing it with epoxy - my favorite, never-fails adhesive - and it didn't work. i think if you can get your camera to Nikon, though, they'll replace the whole door with another whose rubber isn't likely to come off. i read someone online saying they took their D2x in for some other repair and Nikon replaced the door without even asking him...whether they did it for free, i don't know, but i'd hope so, since the rubber falling off in the first place is really their fault.
