option to save RAW image data after taking Jpeg picture gone !

Hello !
i have a K-30 and today while shooting i shot a bunch of photos (may be 30) with no problem, at one point i was shot 3-4 photos in burst and was reviewing those using play button then I pressed shutter button to continue shooting, only to realize my camera is stuck in review mode.... i turned know to turn camera off, but that did not work, so only option i had was to pull the battery... this allowed me to turn off and turn on camera and shot another few photos.

untill, i got a interesting photo and wanted to store RAW data after been shooting in jpeg mode.... this is when i realize the option to saave raw data is gone !

usually i would just click on exposure button that is indicated on screen to save raw data, but this time it was missing.... the option itself is gone.

i further shot about 50 more photos and checked a few time if the option to save raw data appears back, but it gone.

How can i get it back ?

Hi, do you mean that it is disappeared even in menu?
Did you try to check if in the custom assignation page everything is fine?
