Having Issues With K-x Portrait Mode. Help Please

The issue im having is that when I move the program wheel it does not recognize portrait mode at all, it always says landscape. All the other camera modes seem to be working just fine. I have updated the firmware and reset the camera to default settings but still no luck. Any help is greatly appreciated and i thank you in advance.

You can take great photos without any of the modes if you understand what you need to aim for. The K7 and K5 don't have these sorts of modes. Now I don't do portraits so I can't advise about taking them in particular, but I'm sure someone who can will be along.

Having said that, I would find it disturbing to have a camera with a problem like that - it might be the start of something worse going wrong. I guess it's out of guarantee otherwise you would simply send it in, so suggest you start looking for a decent repair shop.

That does not sound like firmware related issue, unfortunately. From your description it seems more of a mechanical problem, particularly with the actual rotary mode switch. I agree with cats_five, this is something you may have to send to a camera shop.
