RX10iii Aperture control problem, or user error?

I recently purchased a Sony RX10iii used online from Amazon warehouse. Cosmetically, you can't tell the difference between a new model and this one, it's that clean.

I like what I see so far but I don't have too much experience with this particular lineup of models. While the camera seems to be functioning normally in dumb auto mode, I'm having trouble adjusting the aperture in aperture priority or manual modes, either with the control dial or the aperture lens ring. It doesn't do anything other than stay wide open at the various focal lengths along the zoom. Auto mode seems to still work but that's not my style.

As I'm new to this particular style of camera, I wanted to rule out a dumb beginner's mistake on my part to make sure I'm not missing anything before I call in an RMA.
