Pentax Q Scenes

I am new - so please tolerate lack of knowledge! I was at an orchid garden yesterday and tried the scene setting of macro for a nice close up (the flower). There was an orchid branch up close, with a far background of foliage. The camera brought the flower into beautiful near, dimensional, focus for a wonderful shot - but the shutter release button would not release to take the photo! The ISO ran all over the place. I set back to auto - still can't take a picture! So I shut the camera off, reset, and tried manually setting to macro again. Repeated with new battery, and flash on - same result. It would have been such a beautiful shot. What is going on? Appreciate your thoughts.

the q in the standard settings can be fussy and may not shoot if it doesn't like something, I had to go into the menu bar and change a certain item but don't remember, good luck.
