Menu Setting Greyed Out

Could somebody help me to enable the Dust Alert setting in my K5 menu.
I activated it and it did not operate and now unable to use as it is greyed out.
Many thanks, Bruce Wells

Are you in green mode? Seems weird that it's grayed out.

You need to have recognizable lens mounted (ie an FA F DA lens)

Thankyou for your reply.
It is greyed out irrespective of settings and the lens on board is a Sigma 17-50 f2.8

If all these conditions are met then there may be something wrong with your camera.

K5 Problem

I apologise for the trouble as I should have read the instruction book properly.
The focus was set on Manual.
Many thanks, Bruce Wells
