Would appreciate your help. K-x has hard time focusing at infinity

I know you guys are bombarded with these posts all the time, so thanks in advance.

I've had my K-x for around 8 months, now and it's proved a steady workhorse. However, recently, I discovered using my kit lens that the camera had a hard time focusing at infinity on the wide end. It would focus, but the focus indicator would blink rapidly. It won't make the beep. I can focus easily up close, but anything 15 feet or further, my camera seems to be not able to confirm focus. It seems like I'm having a similar problem with my telephoto lens, so I believe it's the camera's problem.
Anyone have any help? Already emailed customer support.

Hi, have you tested to see if the focus adjustment is correct for the closer shots? i.e.- when you review your shots on the computer, is the plane of focus where you wanted it to be? or is there any front or back focusing?
