GX7 : Push Rear wheel, turn front wheel ?

Default setting on GX7, when Rear Wheel is pushed in the +/- EV bar appears.  Then, turning the REAR wheel right/left dials in +/- exposure value.  This is in agreement with the manual.

Today, a friend shows me his GX7 that behaves differently. Once the Rear Wheel is pushed in and the yellow +/- bar appears, the wheel stop working. Turning it right/left has no effect what so ever.  Instead, it's the FRONT wheel that will move the +/- exposure value.

In short : once the REAR Wheel is pushed in, the FRONT wheel must be turned for +/-.

We have tried all kinds of setting, including reset to factory values --- nothing changed. Once the Rear wheel is pushed in it stops working. Must resort to the Front wheel.

Any other GX7 behaves this way ?

Thanks in advance.
