K-30 12-second timer not working

The 12-second timer option on my K-30 isn't working. Pressing the shutter button in this mode does nothing... it won't even autofocus, much less take the shot. The 2 second timer seems to work fine. Has anyone else had this problem? Am I doing something wrong? Thanks in advance!

Breadcrumb trail for anyone else who may have this problem: I contacted Pentax Support via the form on their website. They emailed me back an hour or so later and suggested I go into the Menu system and look for the RESET option. I did the reset and it seems to have fixed the problem. Now I guess I have to remember all the preferences I tweaked and tweak them again, since the Reset function sets it back to factory defaults. Oh well - at least it's working again!
