Raw function disabled/greyed out


I'm using a Pentax Q10 and suddenly found I cannot shoot in raw. The option is now greyed out I thought it might be to do with the new SD card I'm using however I switched back to the old SD card and still have the same problem.

Tried reseting settings but doesn't help.

Anyone have this experience?

What shooting mode are you in? You can't use raw in green mode.

On my Q that happened several times when the quick dial got inadvertently moved--so I set it to (same as raw) aspect ratio.

Silly me, after lots of head scratching I realised I accidently moved the quick dial to one of the presets on the front of the camera. Thanks for the responses.
