K-x Autofocus Problem


I'm wondering if someone could help me solve the AF issue I'm having on my K-x. Basically, the camera will not AF regardless of what settings or lens I use. I even tried changing batteries.

On my screen I see the letters "MF" near the battery indicator as well as in the viewfinder near the ISO display. The little switch on the side has been set to "AF" but no luck. Any ideas on what could be wrong?

What lens is it? Perhaps the lens contacts (little metal dots on the back of the lens or on the front of your camera) are dirty and not connecting.

Its all my lenses....the DA18-55mm, 55-300mm, and a Tamron 90mm macro. I did clean the contacts and check again....still no luck.

Perhaps something wrong with the camera itself? Never had this problem before.
