A1 buttons not responding

Ok, I bought my camera last May, since then I had to send it in for repair because the handle control buttons collapsed. The fixed it under the year warranty, but made note "This was a courtesy fix only, not covered under the faulty parts warranty". That I thought was BS, and now 4 months later the handle buttons randomly stop responding again. Not only them but also my magnify/peaking/display control panel will stop responding until I shut the camera off and turn it back on. Whats the deal? Anyone else have this happen? For $3,500 its craftsmanship is starting to be not at all worth the money, especially since I am still paying it off.

And would they still fix it since it seems to be faulty? Or am I going to have to pay to fix it?

Also is there a way to check the hours on the camera for usage? Because I know I haven`t used it that much yet its still failing.

Nathan,
There isn't an hour meter on the camera, also have you checked that the lock isn't on? It is located on the top on the camera just around from rec, and also on the rec button near the handstrap if that makes sense..
