Pentax k10d iso reset

After using a Pentax K10D for abut 12 years no problems. After a couple of hours of shooting into the sunlight the ISO suddenly ramped up to 200 ISO and know IS O400.
Any ideas how i can fix it or is camera on way out?

You can change the ISO through the Fn menu, which is shown after pressing the Fn button.

Have you got the rear thumbwheel set up to alter the ISO ?

While thumb presses "OK" button: 1) turn front thumbwheel to adjust ISO, 2) press green button to auto set ISO.
