Purchased my R6 new back in December of 2021 and haven't used it at all until now. Just took it out of the box. Been happily using my "old" 7DII until it finally died. Problem: I can't turn the Mode Dial no matter what hand pressure I try. Any ideas on how to free it so that it will turn?

Sounds like the camera is broken. It should not take much force to turn the dial. I would send it in for warranty repair (if it is actually brand new).

Yes that wheel should be easy to turn. I guess if itís broken, trying to force it canít hurt too much more at this point.

Try to return to dealer for an exchange. You may be need to sweet talk your salesman since you're over the return period. Otherwise you'll have to mail it to Canon Service for a couple weeks or so.

sure your mode dial doesn't have a center button that has to be pressed in in order to turn it. Don't have an r6 so i don't know

Tried a pipe wrench? It could work

Or it could cause more damage.

How long in months is Canon's warranty on a new camera? Thanks!

It's only one year in the states and some other places it is two years.
Maybe your credit card or such extends the warranty

Hi,

Make sure you did not press the LOCK button to the right of the red Video Record button when you turned it on. Try pressing that button once and see if the dial rotates.

That is not what the lock button does.
