Re: a possible fix...

Ive had to send my K7 back for this issue also. The edial became erratic and generated completely random shutter speeds etc. turn one click and it would jump from 250 to 3000 etc.

Talked to tech at the CRIS and he said its a common problem and they put on some type of conductive lubricant to fix it. Seems the contacts in the potentiometer need to make contact and at times it gets dry or was not lubricated with the proper amount of conductive lube to start with.

But its worked for over a year now after their fix.
