    AF Focus Mode and Area Controls

    I am unable to change AF mode and area. I the lens is switched to M/A, AF button is depressed, info display is on. It is stuck on AF-C and 51 zone area. Spinning control wheels changes nothing. Am I missing something. Thanks ahead.

    Just so we're absolutely clear on the details... You mean to say you're pressing the AF Area-mode button (pic below) while turning the Command Wheel (back of the body) to try and adjust Focus Mode and the Sub-command wheel (front of the body) to try and adjust the AF Area-mode. Following these steps you can not get the camera to use any other setting other than AC-C with 51 points, is that correct?

    Maybe someone else will have another suggestion but *I* can't think of anything else that would cause this issue other than a broken AF-Mode button.

    If that's the problem you're looking at needing to have the camera serviced.

    Try a complete reset before assuming the button is broken.

    Did the reset. No relief. Thanks for the suggestion.

    Have you tried with a different lens? It could be a connection issue.
