K-x: ISO 200 option disappeared!!!

Not sure how it happened but I have lost my ability to select ISO 200. I have checked all the settings I can think of. Seems to affect all modes. any ideas or suggestions?

Turn off Highlight Correction or turn on Expanded Sensitivity. Check the memo on page 190 of the manual.

Like boriscleto said if you turn off highlight correction OR turn on expanded sensitivity you can access ISO 200 also if you turn off highlight correction AND turn on expanded sensitivity you can access ISO 100 up to 12,800.

I think this is the problem:

It sounds like it's how he has the Ev value set up. He's saying he can't access 200:

You have to set it to the lowest Ev value (I forget what that it is, 1/3?), because if you have Expanded Sensitivity on and Highlight Correction off, your slowest ISO choice will be 100, but it will jump up to different ISOs based on the different Ev increments as you spin your ISO dial.

So he lost 200 because it's jumping past that based on the Ev. Or it's only going to right below that.

I forget which, and I stink at math.
