Had a scare last night, the main dial button on my 50D stopped responding, would turn, no action.

I could not change the ISO, Aperture, advance pics in play mode, etc. I turned the camera off and back on, no joy. Changed from the 70-200 2.8 lens (it was stuck on the 2.8 setting), put on the 24-105 f/4 lens, the setting changed to f/4, could not adjust. Turned off and back on, then it started working. Very nervous, the 70-200 lens is new (used) to me, was only the second time I used it.

No errors displayed either and it worked the rest of the night, ~ 100 more pictures. Anyone have this experience? Considering sending to Canon, however don't really want to be without it while being inspected.

Anyone else have a similar experience?

Was the grip attached at the time? Frequently, that's the culprit.

Possibly you didn't have the three way switch properly engaged to the upper position.

This has happened to me and my heart went into my throat for a few seconds.

Same exact thing happened to me last night.

Just yesterday afternoon, I had been using the main dial. Pulled my camera out to use it last night and the main dial wouldn't respond. For a few seconds, I started to panic ... then I looked at the power switch.

To be clear, the main dial is the one by the shutter button. It won't be affected by the position of the on-off switch. If the main dial on the grip is between clicks, it will disable the main dial on the camera. The quick control dial is the one on the back of the camera and some of its functionality is affected by the on-off switch.
