My name is Amanda and I'm new to the forum. I currently shoot with a Pentax K-X and LOVE it but found this forum because I have recently encountered some issues with my camera and was wondering if I could find anyone who has gone through the same or knows how to troubleshoot my problem!

I came home to 4 deer in the backyard.. I was pretty excited and I ran inside to grab my camera.. I get back outside with my Pentax K-X, get it fully focused and the camera would set the flash off but wouldn't actually take the photo.. I changed the dial to a few different settings.. heard some grunting and they were gone. Frustrated I brought the camera back inside, put it back onto manual again and it took the photo.. but it is still selective on which settings it will take a picture from.. anyone have any ideas or suggestions on how to fix this?

Welcome aboard! I'd recommend that you post your question in the troubleshooting forum, as most people don't answer questions in the welcomes section.

Welcome to the forum, I'm not familiar with K-X, if you post as per Adams suggestion I'm sure you will get an answer.
