Fujifilm X-T4 great price with caveats

Hi there, I got a crazy deal on an X-T4 for 800 but... the play and delete buttons to view photos are not working. If I assign the function button to play, it does let me review photos but even then I can't use the delete button.
Would you keep it and just deal with this? will it get worse?
I can also purchase a 2 year New Leaf extended warranty.

Yes, you can assign Play to another button, and for deleting just press menu and choose Erase. That's how I delete photos anyway 😃

That's a crazy cheap deal if you ask me, assuming there's nothing else wrong with the camera.

If you purchase the warrantee at a reasonable price you can have the camera serviced and have all functions as they should be.

Great deal!

So the menu underneath the ISO dial - when I change any of these, should I see anything on the screen change?
So many things to check that I have no clue if there is anything else wrong.

How do I test the menu under the ISO dial to make sure it's working?

$800 USD? If so I too would check the camera very carefully. 

Are you aware that Fuji has a PDF manual online? Do us a favor and read it.

My guess is that it will get worse over time. At least that was my experience with my X-e2. I kept on finding work arounds for dying buttons, dead AF and blurry LCD until one day I was left with manual focus only. My keeper rate was getting worse and worse. In the end I got my money's worth and became a better picture taker because of it.

Yeah looks like the menu below the ISO dial is not functioning either.
I followed manual for ADV and changed it to different filters and LCD image doesn't change at all.
