The first issue with K-1 (resolved)

I haven't used K-1 for a week. Today I put a fully charged battery as usual, then noticed that four way controller does not let me access to quick settings any more. It works now only in LV.
In preview mode I still can use controller to move enlarged picture, that's all.

I did reset, took off the battery, put it back-nothing changed. The controller does not work.
So, what's now... Repair?

What if you press the small button above the four way controller once and try again?

It works, but ones. To get an access again, I need to press the button again. Did I mess with some settings?
I reset the camera.

+1 to Tjompen, MicroMacro. You changed the mode to selectable AF points.

In the C-menu there is a selection on how you want the controller to behave. Check the manual.

Nope, I did not. For that I'm long enough with Pentax

I reset custom setting, daaah!
Thanks, it works.
I don't remember I messed with that function. Must be getting old.

I've seen you...you're not old. Old is when you need the manual to turn the camera on....or when you let a raccoon in the house thinking it is the cat...ever see that commercial?

Regards!

Glad it's all better
Now change the thread title to 'resolved!' so the haters won't go blogging about "all the K-1 complaints"

Yup, this is controlled by C20. I personally prefer to keep it enabled, so that I never accidentally change the drive mode or another important setting.

Adam did it already, thanks.
I would write "user's dementia" instead
