Although it will turn, the Power/Mode dial is very stiff and the shutter button has frozen...I can't depress it. When the camera is turned on the lens will only advance partway out of the barrel. Also, the zoom rocker control is not functioning.
Have changed the batteries without success. Just returned from a very humid climate, where camera was working fine and I did not detect any condensation on lens at any time. The camera has not been dropped or bumped.

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.
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.

Turn the function dial to the drive mode position. Press the function button in the center of the dial. Turn the front control dial to select the self-timer drive mode. Use the rear control dial to to switch between a ten-second and a two-second delay. Press the shutter-release button partway down or press the function button to set the mode. ------ When you are ready to take the picture. Press the shutter button partway down to set the focus and exposure. Press the shutter button all the way down to start the timer.
The "--" is the equivalent of the bulb setting with the remote control. The first press of the button opens the shutter and starts the exposure. Another press of the button closes the shutter and ends the exposure. This is so you don't have to hold the button down and risk a bird flying through the beam (and to conserve battery power).
from the manual:
Using Shutter-Priority Mode 1.
Set the mode dial to S (shutter-priority) and a yellow arrowhead on the screen points to the current shutter speed. Press the jog dial and the current shutter speed turns yellow. 2. With the current shutter speed displayed in yellow, rotate the jog dial to select the speed you want to use. 3. Take the picture. If a workable aperture isn?t available for the shutter speed you?ve selected, the shutter speed indicator on the screen flashes when you press the shutter button halfway down. You can use the setting as is, or press the jog dial down to select the shutter speed again and rotate it to select a new shutter speed.
The cause and solution may include one of the following:
The camera is not turned on. Turn on the camera.
The camera is processing a picture; the camera Power ring light (on the Mode dial) blinks green. Wait until the light stops blinking before taking another picture.
The card or internal memory is full. Transfer pictures to the computer, delete pictures from the camera, switch storage locations, or insert a memory card with available memory.
The shutter button was not pressed. Depress the shutter button completely down.
There was a failure in the focus and/or exposure. Press the shutter button halfway to set the Auto Focus (AF) and Auto Exposure (AE). When the AF/AE indicator turns green, press the shutter button completely down.
The battery is exhausted. Replace or recharge the battery
