Go to the person's Edit Person window and click in the photo column to the right of his/her name.
That should bring up the Media Album.
Click once on the photo you want to use as the primary.
Go to the right and click on Edit Tag
At the lower left there are two check boxes.
Make sure there is a check in the Primary Photo box.

I do not think that deleting the person will do you any good, and it might be difficult to get him/her back in place correctly.
I would suggest that you link the media item again and try setting the Primary tag for the new one.
It is easy to do a new link for an existing media item.
With the item selected, a little red box around it, go to the right and click on the "Tag Media" button.
Make sure "Person" is in the tag type field and the person's name is in the Person field.
Put a check-mark in the "Primary photo for this person" box and click the OK button, another OK then a Close.
HMMMM, if no photo is marked as the primary, no picture shows up for the person on the main screen either.
It is getting curiouser and curiouser.

UPDATE MultimediaTable SET MediaType=1 WHERE LOWER(SUBSTR(MediaFile,-3)) IN ('bmp','gif','jpg','png','tif');I don't know the complete set of file extensions/file types that RM recognises as image files but it does support these. Similar ones could be used for sound, video and other file types.
I cannot think of a reason why one would want to force RM to treat one type of file as a different type so I would suggest that a tool to 'Normalise file types' in the Media Gallery should be included to help those who unwittingly added files as the wrong type and have encountered complications as a result.
