Hi gang, everything about my new (to me) Nikon R10 checks out, other than the Exposure dial or adjustment control. The milled ring is stuck in the 0 (normal) position and cannot seem to be moved in either direction. Is there a certain trick to moving it?

I'm stumped. Picture of part in question attached. The left (outer) dial is for film speed. That works fine. The inner ring is for exposure.

I acquired an R10 about 3 years ago. Unlike on the R10 which I had used for 30 years, the milled ring appeared to be stuck. However, I managed to turn it after which it became Ok to adjust. I think if the ring has not been turned for many years it becomes extremely stiff. Even on a new R10, it is intended to be fairly stiff. You may have to use a lot of strength to get it to move, but in my experience once it has been freed it can then be adjusted.

Well looks like you were on the money. It started to give a little yesterday and now can be moved, each time slightly easier than the time before. Success!
