K-30 - control wheels not working after taking a picture

Hey, I just got a new Pentax K-30 and I am very happy with it so far. There is only one problem. If I use the TAV, AV, TV or SV mode I can use the wheels first to adjust the values. But after I have taken a picture the wheels won't work anymore. I have to go to the menu or the taken pictures and back so that I can use them again. Is that just a configuration problem, a bug or is it really wanted that it behaves that way? best wishes

It seems Pentax are not too good when it comes to firmware. It is certainly a bug as it certainly should not be doing that. Just on the off chance you have set some obscure setting by mistake I should try set the camera back to factory settings. I believe also there is a new firmware update which should certainly fix it.

Unfortunately the firmware update did not fix the problem. But is it the same for everyone or is it just a problem with my camera?

The control panel has to have the standby screen displayed. if you are displaying the status or file format screens it won't work.

setting the camera back to factory settings worked! I am not sure why because I didn't make any big changes in the config but it is all right for me now Thank you for your help!

good ! Glad it worked It can be a strange camera to get to know. There are a number of functions that do not work while other functions are set. Back to factory settings is always the first port of call
