pentax initial settings

I have set initial setting but it asks me to do it every time I turn on the camera. What gives?

... for which camera?

It's a long time since I have done the initial setup, but once the input language is chosen, that's it.

If however there is an older lens mounted, there is the question about the lens focal length each time the power is turned on.

On the K30 if you forgot to set your Home Town date & time the screen will pop up every time you turn the camera on.

My wife just received an X-5 and everything has to be set to turn off the warning. And the lens cap has to be off even when you only want to view pictures already taken. The camera shuts down if the lens cap is on.

Just out of curiosity, what happens if you (when the camera is off) press and hold down the Play button? On my Nikon P7100 if I do that I can simply view images without the camera turning on completely and extending the lens.
