How to change ISO in Manual Mode

When I have the camera in manual mode I cannot get the ISO below 400. When i select ISO from the directional pad a "Sensitivity Fixed Value" screen comes up. I am able to go higher than 400 but never below it. I looked throughout the manual and didn't see anything about why it would only allow an ISO of 400 and above.

Any ideas on what i am doing wrong?

I am new to the K-r so it might just be my stupidity!

Hi, Check to see if you have highlight correction on in the D-range setting menu ( tab 3 ), if so try turning it off. This is the only thing so far that I've found to cause manual ISO to start at 400.
