Default Pentax Overall Quality

I just got my Pentax K-R and it is already having problem.

When I try to use the Back Dial (e-dial), it will only go up but not down.

For example, when changing the Aparture value, it will go back up while I am trying to lower the number.
When viewing a picture, it will zoom-in while I am trying to zoom-out.

I just send my in for repair. Let's see how long it takes.

if you just got it I would have returned it for a brand new one but if you;ve had ot for several months that may not be an option. Good luck in getting it to work properly

It is actually a replacement unit for my Pentax K-X. It was very kind of them to do that otherwise, I will need to wait for another 5 weeks for it.
I did some research and many people have this same problem.
Pentax need to do something about Quality Control.
