The camera's dials stopped working for a while. The exposure dial and the menu dial. After a few months they started working again. Now once more upon starting another project the dials are unresponsive.

You have to hold down the exposure compensation button at the same time as turning the control dial.
The values appear on the control panel screen.
I found this on page 33 of the manual...
Set the mode dial to M and turn the control dial to set the value.
• To set the shutter speed: Turn the control dial.
To set the aperture value:Turn the control dial while holding down the
[+-](exposure compensation) button.
The exposure level indicator appears on the control panel screen, showing the difference (ranging from -3 EV to +3 EV) between the exposure value calculated by the currently selected aperture
and shutter speed compared to the exposure value considered optimum by the camera.
Check your Exposure Compensation Dial. In shooting modes where exposure compensation is allowed, this dial can be set to decrease or increase the brightness of the image in 1/3-stop increments across a range of -2 to 2. You use this control to override the camera's automatic exposure settings to get a slightly darker or lighter image. It should be set to 0.
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.
There can be 2 issues that i would check first: Check the exposure. The symptom described looks like a heavily overexposed photo. But the foto pn automatic and make a phot on the shade. Make sure the exsposure is not far right into ++.
Alternatively you can set the camera to automatic ( small camera icon on the dial) . If that solves it , the exposure was the issue
Also the White balance is something to check How to on page 26 manual : pdf.crse.com/manuals/3296322111.pdf Please let me know if this worked.
Make sure that the SETUP option is nearest to the black mark on the camera, if you are still not shown the options menu, you should probably call Nikon USA to get the camera serviced if still under warranty.
Try change the exposure of the camera: start the camera, set the dial to 'I' (automatic iso), then press the 'up' menu near the display until 'exposure' settings appear. move the slider to the left/right, according to your preference. I reccomend using the automatic iso for taking pictures, it automatically adjust exposure.
try to set the itty ***** red dot to 0 again make sure the collar goes down its the compensation mode once its down try turning the speed dial again i haven't had a film camera for about 8yrs i had a nikon 6060 which is almost like a fg . hope this helps
