Re: E620 defaulting to P

when left in A and then turned off and back on it restarts in A and then you just flip the dial from A to something and back to A and it works as expected again

Any ideas ?

It really needs a service to clean the contacts but my E30 was like that occasionally. Rotate the dial back & forth a few times & that might clear it for a little while. I believe someone sprayed a little contact cleaner (or something similar) into their control dial with success, but don't quote me on that though.
I fiddle with violins (when I'm not fiddling with a camera).
