I have a 3 year old EX-P600 that has stopped working partly.
The dial to change to different modes doesn't change to every mode and the right and left scrolling button to go through menus doesn't work either.
Can anyone help?

Re: Dial Doesn't Work
Dont think you are going to be lucky here.
This is a switching problem and a repair is not going to be a viable proposition.
Check out the Casio web site Tech Support- but I fear any repair they will ofer the price will be a good proportion of the next[uptodate] camera

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.
Have you tried turning the drive mode lever from self timer mode to single shot mode? If not, surrounding the mode dial are a couple of levers: one being the on and off lever and the other being the drive mode lever. if you move the drive mode lever up to the first option (illustrated by a single box, meaning single shot), you'll be able to turn the self timer off.
If that doesn't work, then it might be a system bug/error. In that case, download the latest firmware here and upgrade your camera.
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.
My mode dial FZ28 is only loose and sometimes I get the same error message. A shop gave me this price for replacing the mode dial: around $100 for the mode dial, $25 for the man-work (French prices). But I don't know if it can be repaired (not changed). If you have fixed yours, any idea will be apreciated. Thanks;
I was having the same problem... I put the camera in the cradle with it plugged into usb and then pushed play mode... the camera went to play mode and then i pushed and held the camera mode button while i was removing it from the cradle... it ended up turning on!!! i have no clue.. very weird
Hey i had the same problem. Saw your post and none others. Finnaly i gave up looking and just started tearing my camera apart. My camera is a Kodac 7630 so the diss assembly may be a little different but with the removal of a half dozen screws i got to the inside of the dial. It didnt feel sticky but i took it apart any way and cleaned all the touching serfaces of the dial with rubbing alchohol and my problem is solved. took about 30 min and there was really no danger of harming the camera. Its amazing the just a little stickyness caused the problem i was having because i could push with all my might and the dian didnt budge. i thought a part was broken in there. i think this is because you allso have to push down to move the dial so a little tickyness combined with your downward presure makes it impossible to turn.
I had a similar problem with my EOS 5, was trying to change between modes
and it made a lovely "snapping pencil" noise and then behaved as you
describe. I managed to get it done under warranty after a lot of moaning
and ****(it was 54 weeks old). After chatting to some camera shop
owners it seemed to be the most common problem with the EOS 5 (doesn't
happen often, just most common type of error). I could understand it if I
was going from the program modes to the creative modes where you have to
pass through the "lock" position, but I am sure that I wasn't. Anyway,
upshot was that it got fixed, works fine now, but when changing modes I
always depress the "lock" button, even if its not passing through the "lock"
position. Sorry, but the quick fix is pay the $75 which doesnt seem
unreasonable, or switch to a camera that doesnt use that type of switching
method, EOS3, EOS1, EOS D3 :-). Hope this helps to answer your question
