Setting ISO with screen folded.

I received my K-70 yesterday, it is my third Pentax DSLR(K-x damaged due to sd card and a K-50, mirror lock-up failure). I tried using it like a film camera by folding the screen towards the body and adjusting settings through the viewfinder. In almost every mode, I cannot change the ISO setting, when the screen is folded(towards the body). Is there any way around this? Is this normal?

In three of the six main modes: Sv, Tv, and Av Modes you should be able to assign ISO to the control dial of your choice - explore the sub-menus of Camera Menu 5, "Button Customisation" - "E-Dial Programming".
