K10 front focusing

As above. I know there is a programme for allowing a debug setting to enable correction of focusing issues.
Can someone please direct me and offer suggestions re front focusing.
I have now purchased a K20 but I need to sort the K10 out.
Regards Bannor 75.

There are a number of discussion threads on this forum and elsewhere on the topic. Google "K10D debug menu".

Use caution...There is a lot of potential to screw things up. Also be aware that the AF adjustment will be specific to the lens you do the adjustment on and may not be right for other lenses.

1) Download this file
2) Copy it to the root of your SD/SDHC card (right near DCIM folder, not inside it)
3) Rename file to MODSET.TXT
4) Turn camera on with opened card-door. (and flash containing this file of course)
5) Enable Debug Mode, close card-door and press OK
6) Go to Setup menu "AF Test" and correct it using this table for focusing
