K5iis won't zoom in live view

I don't know if I changed a setting by accident but my K5iis won't zoom with the shutter half way down. When I put the shutter half way down the live view clicks, and the live view panel goes dark. Once I fully push the shutter it still takes the picture at normal size

Thanks

Randy

Sounds like its switching the focus method. Try setting the live view focus to face detect to test.

Magnifying the live view display does not result in a magnified capture. Your K-5IIs does not support digital zoom as is common in P&S and phone cameras.
