K20D Autofocus Failure

Hi Folks!

One of our Pentax bodies, a K20D, is failing to autofocus with any lenses.

In either the AF.S or AF.C position, the lens will travel its full focus range, but will never find focus, even in bright, high-contrast conditions.

We are experienced Pentax users, and yes, I have reset the body to factory default settings.

Any suggestions?

Many thanks!

Did you reinstall the latest firmware?

Hmmmm… It has the latest firmware, but I haven't reinstalled it. I'll try that. Stay tuned.
